We got a load of Sonata's saturday and I cleaned them first thing this morning. I see this weird button and I look and it says "active eco" which was next to the traction control button. It looks like it turns the eco light on permanetly. No longer can you control it from the trip button. Also, I honked the horn at my friend and I heard something amazing, a real horn! They put the Santa Fe horn in the Sonata. However, for the panic button it's still a wimpy horn. I'm going to see what they can do about switching horns out for me. It didn't say 2011.5 on the sticker, but it seems to be a midyear type of thing since the Sonata has been out for 8 months and we aren't even into 2011 yet.

On a side note, after 2 and a half weeks, I had to finally fill my tank. My trip computer said 21.6 but my math calculated 22.7 which I'm happy with. Today on my normal route the trip computer said 25.3 to 26.2 which is great! I'm loving my car!

This is great news! Can you do us a favor and check the build dates on those cars? We have been hearing that cars built after Sept 1 get the new horn, but it would be nice to confirm it!

I guess I dont understand what the point is of turning the Eco light on permanently? My understanding of what that light does, is it lets you know when you are driving economically? Does pressing the button prevent you from flooring it or going over a certain MPH?!

Also, one last question, there are rumors that a larger 7" Nav screen will be available as a midyear replacement. Did any of these cars you saw have Nav? If so, do the screens look any larger?
Mike, you are correct that the Sonata's started during the first week of September. However, I don't know the exact date. The newest one we have received was Sept 20th.

I have no idea how the new eco light works. When I press the button, the eco light stays on. I've only driven the cars thru our parking lot and drove them thru the carwash, so I'm not absolutely sure.

We received a black SE with nav that sold already and a Limited with nav. Neither of them looked like they had larger screens.

Hope this helps!

anybody know if we can take in our meep meep horn (like when we go in for the recall) and have them swap it out with the new horn??

I'm working to see if they will do that. I do know that the horn is behind the grille and you can see it too. The horns for the panic buttons seems to be located behind the headlights.
