I went to get some information on hmaservice.com and they list
variations for each model. How do I determine what I have?
For the 2013 Sonata, they have:
I did not see any place where they showed what the suffixed mean. The
one manual I chose seems to be correct but I did not download the
others for comparison. I did not expect the owners manual to be 425
Usually the suffix designates a particular generation of a given model.
When I checked, the only choice for a 2013 Sonata was YF.
YF HEV is listed for the Sonata Hybrid.
LM is listed only for the Tucson.
HEV is the Hybrid.
I really don't like how Hyundai does this on a site the general public is also to use. Heck, even the less experienced technicians in the shop have trouble with it. It'd be so much simpler to select a model and year and have the website sort out the model desgnation.
Nonetheless, you can in general figure out which model is correct by looking at the available years. For example, for Sonata, the following should be available:
Y2 -- 1989-1994
Y3 -- 1995-1998
EF -- 1999-2005
NF -- 2006-2010
YF -- 2011-
