1st Long Trip 2006 Sonata GLS

Just got back from a thousand mile road trip over the holiday's, and it drove like a charm. Most noticable was the highway stability in high winds and rain (half the trip). Like a rock. Also noticed that you
really have to be a little more aware than perhaps a smaller lighter car coming to a stop and anicipate the circumstances or so it seemed to me. It's been said in that the shorter seat "pans" contribute to leg fatigue, BS! Very little body fatigue at all. I find that the trip computer is a bit of bother as you have to take one hand and your eyes off the road and reach around the wheel while driving. Perhaps a mount on the steering wheel along with the radio and cruise control would take at least one of these issues away. Internal room and trunk space phenomal. 3 people, luggage (gifts boots etc) for four days not an issue at all. Gas mileage was much better than expected with the 6. The larger engine gave a bit more security while highway driving as the additional power was called on more than once to avoid potential problems. Windsheild wipers left not a smudge and clearing the glass was made quicker with the 6 sprayers on the hood. Front visibility was excellent side was good (be sure to check twice with that door stanchion there) and rear, well I still miss the windshield wiper. All in all passed the intitiation with an A. Doc

I picked up my new Sonata V6 about a month ago. Also did a long trip with 2 other adults in the car. Lots of leg room and comfort front and back seats with prenty of luggage space. The car is amazing. I was travelling at speeds up to 145 kms without even noticing I was going that fast... hehehhe. ( My sister noticed it heheh). Having different people drive the car, the adjustible pedals is wonderful. I can't say any bad about the car it is fantastic.

............side was good (be sure to check twice with that door

Try this for the side mirror adjustments. It takes a little time to get used to, but it works great. It works best on the highway, not too good for normal driving around town.
Sitting in your normal driving position, lean to the left until your head just touches the window. Adjust the left mirror so you can just see the left rear corner of the car. Next, lean to the right about the same amount as you did when you put your head against the window and adjust the right side mirror to see the right rear corner of the car. Finally, adjust the up/down for each side based on your seat height to get the best view of the road behind you.. If done right, or with a little "tweaking" as you drive you should see an approaching car in your left side mirror up to the point where you just need to glance to your left to see it out your window. When passing a car, you will be completely clear when you can see both headlights of the car you just passed.
