2010 Hyundai Sonata from North America
Paint chip on hood - being repainted.
Major issue with headlights - extremely poor visibility at night.
Navigation system (GPS) is the absolute worst I've ever used.
Cargo net for trunk - a laugh - totally non-functional.
Seatbelt frequently 'catches' when you go to put it on.
Headlight problem - Horizontal 'line' across dashboard - pitch black above line (in line with your eyes), headlights light road below the line. First time I drove at night, I thought there was something wrong with my eyes, but my husband was with me and verified what I was seeing.
Very dangerous! As you drive along country roads with hills, the line of vision gets smaller as you go down hills and slightly greater as you go up hills. The only time you can truly see the road well is when you have the high beams on, and you certainly can't drive with them on all the time.
Same is true in loaner car I currently have, so obviously it's a manufacturing/design flaw.
GPS/Navigation system - absolutely terrible! Living in a rural area, most of the roads are defined with route numbers, yet the GPS does not recognize them. No one using this GPS would ever find their way around my area - gives names that don't exist. Even when I drove to Harrisburg, PA, the navigation system gave me highway names that were not listed on signs instead of providing Interstate Rt. Numbers. When I travel, I have to borrow my husband's Garmin - don't waste $1200 on this built in navigation system. Garmin is 100 times better.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I drive a 2010 Sonata and I too don't get the posted mileage. I get even better mileage, like 33MPG highway with the 3.3L V6. I have no problem with night driving and my GPS works just fine. The only second rate cars I can think of are the Detroit garbage that I will NEVER purchase again.
