2013 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid OWNER RATINGS & REVIEWS
Write a review
40 miles per gallon without the shame of a Prius.
My car is a 2013 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid limited. I bought it as I was traveling 175 miles between cities regularly and needed something with excellent gas mileage that didn't compromise on safety or size. The Hybrid model is excellent as it's rated at 40mpg on the highway and 36 miles in the city. The limited level trim includes a large touch screen navigation set up, satellite radio, heated front and rear seats and premium audio system.
Ok for the First Year...
When I bought my Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, I loved it. The drive was very smooth, the car itself was beautiful. I liked being able to remote start the car. It was easy to maintain. But after 15 months and just under 12,000 miles, the car needed a new transmission. When I looked up the issue online, I discovered that others with Sonata Hybrids had encountered a similar issue. It was a nightmare getting it fixed (which included having to spend $480 on a rental car out of pocket because the dealer said they didn't do loaner cars) partly because the transmission was on back order. I have had my car back with the new transmission for a couple of months now and it is driving okay, but I just don't trust it the same as I did before.
This is one of the most dependable, fuel-efficient, and comfortable mid-sized sedans I've ever owned. We use it as our daily driver and our long-trip vehicle, driving it throughout Florida and back home to Northern Arkansas. We take it on long trips, to the beach, and occasionally pack our camping equipment in it for a trip to a national forest or a music festival. The body style is also sleek and futuristic but not too much of a standout. It handles well for a car of it class, and I had no trouble taking the curves in the Ozark Mountains.
