Last month I picked up a used 2012 Ford Focus Sport Hatchback with only 25,000 miles on it. Had it 3 weeks, and got in a bad accident on I-5 on the way home from work. Finally got the work yesterday that it was a total loss.

Went down to the local dealership and picked up a new 2013 Sonata GLS. I really wanted the SE with Nav but was also trading in a older 2003 F150 and didn't want to roll over any money so I was able to work out a deal on the GLS.

Thanks everyone! Yes, the spoiler looks sweet. I am enjoying it so far but only was able to drive it to work... LOL!

Take it for a long pleasure drive. You will love it.
I am working on that. I think next weekend we will be making a trip down to see family in Southern Ca from up here in Northern Ca. Can't wait. So far I am really enjoying it. Still getting used to the feel of it especially the steering, very sensitive being electric power steering.

I bought a new GLS last Saturday. My first longer trip will be tomorrow when I drive down to the Jersey shore from central NJ. I love the car so far, but will also miss my 16 year old Honda Accord, which I drove maybe for the last time tonight.

I personally think you made a good choice with the GLS. I didn't realize how harsh of a ride the sport tuned suspension was on the SE. Not a complete deal breaker for me, but it does get a little bumpy at times.
BTW that is good pic.

Roseville Hyundai. I want that spoiler when I bought my se there. I was like Wtf a gls with spoiler?.Anyways welcome. If you don't like the steering feel, take it in to service and request sport EPS setting. Just did that a week ago and what a huge difference.

I traded in a gas hog of a truck which was nice to get it off the Ins as it just sat. I paid $21,599 OTD ($23,599 Sticker). They treated me well!!

That is a great price. Good to hear that they treated you well. Because of their attention and ability to help, me and my brother actually bought 2 2013 Sonata SE 2.4 from there the same day. LOL. If the steering doesn't feel right ( or wanders around) just take it to them and have them flash in the sport setting. They found my SE setting on soft and reflashed it to sport ( my request).
