Hyundai Sonata 2018 FAQs

Check out real-world situations relating to the Hyundai Sonata here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Will the push-button gear selector deteriorate when its frequently used?

    Cars have a range of what interior designers call touch-points and these include both the controls and the surfaces you touch just by sitting in the car (the seat, the armrest and so on). Modern cars and materials are much better at getting these surfaces to withstand constant use and contact, but even then, sometimes the little icons can fade or wear off altogether.

    It's much less common today, of course, but one thing that hasn’t changed is grimy hands (although Covid has led to generally cleaner hands around the world) so cleaning these touch-points is also important for hygiene and clarity. Something to bear in mind is that, unlike a cruise-control or stereo button, you will probably only touch the gear selector twice every journey (once when you start the car and move off, and the second when you set it to Park and switch the engine off).

    Electronics not ageing gracefully is a whole other subject and one that continues to confound some manufacturers. And even though this technology improves with every new generation, the move to electronic control for basic functions often seems like a backward step. Show the owner of a new four-wheel-drive, with a rotary dial to select the driveline settings, an older off-roader with a simple, foolproof mechanical lever to shift between two and four-wheel-drive and you’ll leave them wishing for the good old days.

  • Hyundai Sonata 2015: Reversing camera out of alignment

    Something apparently changed when they replaced the head unit. Was the replacement the same as the old one? I don’t doubt the claim that the camera itself can’t be adjusted, but something has changed and what that is needs to be established so it can be fixed. Take it back to the dealer and ask them to have another look and find a solution.

    Sometimes dealers don’t go the extra mile to fix a problem, they can be more focussed on getting the car out the door.

  • Should I buy a Hyundai Sonata?

    Comfortable, smooth, fuss-free, with plenty of room inside and a huge boot. It has 5-star safety and comes with a good warranty. It’s a good choice.
