Yes, those annoyances remain, but nothing much can be done about them so
I don't spend much time thinking about them. I did drive my truck to
work today as temps near 100 were forecast (and were realized!) with
fairly high humidity. I didn't make it too work in the truck with the
fan on low before I had to turn the temp up. That isn't a problem in
the Sonata. I leave it on full cold and at least the second fan speed
all the time when the temps are above 80. Looks like another scorcher
tomorrow so I'll drive the truck again. I hate getting 16 MPG rather
than 29, but I like being cool!
Yes, the mileage has been decent, but remember I have the 4 cylinder/5
speed so it certainly isn't outstanding. The only real disappointment
was that the one trip I took in the car didn't really increase the
mileage much at all. I got 32 on one tank and 31 on the other, which is
only slightly above what it averages commuting to work each day.
Yes, I agree! I've visited many places in the USA and the world, and
found few that I think compare. I like southern Vermont and northern NH
and parts of Colorado, and would proably like Austria, Switzerland and
northern Italy (but I haven't been to any of them yet), but I still like
PA as good as anywhere I've been.
I do like it better though when it isn't 100 out...
I too have the 4 cylinder with 8k and just drove from Pittsburgh to
Clifton Park, NY (511 miles). The trip computer read 35.7 miles avg. I
was excited, but when I filled up, almost 32. Not even close. Up until
then, the computer has been accurate. I have been topping off when
refilling so I can have a consistent reference point when checking.
