I was just noting the thing I did not like. The front end is hard for
me to judge and the lack of proximity sensors in the front is a pain.
The cross-traffic indicator is, as you note, a very handy feature.
I shoulda mentioned the gas mileage; it's not much--very
little--better than my Genesis; 28-29 MPG vs 25 in the Genesis at 80
Maybe I shoulda mentioned how much improved the cruise control is over
the older Genesit. it's dramatically more useful. And, yes, there's
a bit more road noise but the radio masks that.
But everything else is smoking! It's a hell of a lot of car for half
the price of the Genesis. But if you can bear the hit, the Genesis is
the way to go--as you did.
My daughter stole her Mom's new Sonata to take back to UT since mom
can't drive for the nest coupla months. /fter mom gets used to her
new right leg I'll have to put in a left-side gas pedal.
I am deaf enough that the difference in the sound systems isn't
apparent to me; the Sonata sounts Great to these old-man ears.
And to the kid's.
Today I too my first long ride in the Genesis. I was cruising along at
75 mph on I91 N in Vermont and looked at the instruments. I was past
the 250 mile mark non-stop and was very comfortable in the seat. I had
moved the steering wheel a little from my usual position. I finally got
out at 325 miles and really felt good. This is the most comfortable car
I've ever had.
