I drive an '09 Sonata GLS. I was unhappy with what I called "soupy" steering. My driving age son calls it "meandering." But I adjusted to it and am quite happy overall with the car. I was also unhappy with the harsh ride especially at the rear. However, I just passed the basic 60K warranty and am now on 61K+. The Sonatas available in my area are for year model 2013. How are they now? Better steering? Smoother ride? Although I am scheduled for a test drive, I don't know if I could detect what I don't like on a short drive. I did test drive the 09s several times at different dealers and did not recognize what I criticize later as soupy steering and harsh ride. Another problem is that I have difficulty locating the iridescent blue color that I like. BTW. The steering feel I got used to are in Volkswagens, Hondas and Nissans. I did drive Toyotas and I found the steering feel tepid but not as soupy as my Sonata '09. My other choices now are narrowed to: Subaru Legacy, the new Kodo design Mazda 6, and Ford Fusion. Price wise of course, the Sonata leads in economy. I am about to rule out Legacy because of the aging body design and I don't want to be the last chump to buy it when it is redesigned. But I am attracted to its AWD because I have to drive sometimes in the snow. Because I have a typical Asian built (long torso with comparably short legs), I have difficulty getting into the low roofline of the new M6 having to twist my neck. I know I should put my head in first before my body, but I keep forgetting and I lose my balance when I do that. But of course I could enter it like a girl in skirts (rear end first) but what would that do to my manly image? Ford Fusion has no extensive reliability ratings yet. Same with the new M6. Can somebody help me sort out my pros and cons and make a definite suggestion?
