New issue of Consumers Reports (Feb. 13) showed up today, and among
their ratings they have a rating for the 2013 Sonata GLS and also for
They rate the Reliability as "Good" for the GLS and "Poor" for the
Limited. (solid black filled in circle; the lowest rating they have).
Can anyone explain why this might be ?
How different are they; same engine (I think), and most things ?
What am I missing, please ?
BTW: they have in parenthesis next to the GLS "2.4"
and next to the Limited, they have in parenthesis "2.0T"
What do these mean, please ?
I would think that the big difference between the GLS and the Limited would
be the turbo-charged 2.0 You are looking at around 270 hp for a 2.0 which
is in the V6 range which suggests reliability issues or perhaps drivability
when you consider turbo lag. But, turbo engines have been around for a long
time, so I would like to think there should be no issues.
