Just registered to do some searching and readingbefore buying a new car. I'm down to Sonata and Optima. Basicly comes down to finding color/options I want, price and if I buy in NYS or NCand transport it up to NYS.
Sonata all the way. I too was in your position. Not only did I get a good deal on the Sonata, but I just like the way it looks a lot better. Yes there are some pros/cons between the two but both get about the same MPG and I think there is more support for the sonata. Don't get me wrong I do like the Optima, but I like the Sonata body lines better. The front end of the Optima looks like the 8th gen/9th gen honda accords too much and the only thinkg i like about the optima is that it came with the LED DRLs.
