- Lower than expected fuel economy
We owned the GLS V6 for 12 months & we drive 60miles one way to work so the miles quickly added up (38,000/yr). At best, we averaged 25mpg hwy @ 70mph but I guess I expected a bit more.
That is the only con for this car since when it came time to perform in a crash.....it literally saved our lives. Wednesday morning 12/13/06, while cruising @ 70mph, another car merged on the highway & hit a small patch of black ice which pushed her across our front right into her(front air bags depolyed), which then threw us into oncoming traffic. A semi was coming head on very quickly & luckily the Sonata spun around just enough to allow the semi to smash into the trunk, thus absorbing to brunt of the hit. The front absorbed the first hit & the trunk no longer exists since it absorbed the semi.
We walked away from a crash that we should have not have. This is a well built car & we have already contacted our dealer to find us an 07 Sonata (this time we are getting the Limited Pkg......you only live once!).
