it really does, enough that someone like myself coming from a V8 can still hammer the Sonata, have a ton of fun in the process, and in the end still get awesome MPG. I think i will be forever pedal happy in the Sonata LolYou need to let yourself enjoy the fuel efficiency. Don't question it, just embrace it!
The Sonata has awesome fuel efficiency. It is one of the appeals of the car. Were you expecting worse?
My previous Truck for the last 18-year is the 1993 Ford Ranger SVO. I bought it in 1995 when it had only 16,000 miles. A turbocharged 2.3 (a Merkur XR4Ti motor) that has been super reliable, but its 20 years old and has 210,000 miles. The Ranger is very well tuned and actually gets 30 MPG.Why, do you want it to do worse LOL
not sure what model sonata you bought or how you drive but fuel econ will fluctuate dearly based on driver input. I can turn even the most fuel efficient Prius into a 10 mpg-er if i want to, just flog its bones out
If i might ask what did you come to the Sonata from? A similar midsize, something bigger, maybe a truck?
