I've already obtained one fairly large stone chip in the front edge of
my hood on my 06 Sonata. I'm thinking about buying a hood deflector,
but I have one on my truck and haven't liked it much. It protects the
hood very nicely, but it disturbs the airflow enough to make the mirrors
vibrate and make the windshield washers much less effective. It also
cost me at least 0.5 MPG.
The Sonata delfector looks less aggressive with less of up upturned lip,
but I'm still wondering how it will affect the airflow. Anyone
installed one yet? Anyone tried any other forms of protection for the
front lip of the hood (bra, 3M tape, etc.)?
