actually if compared to my another honda city, fuel consumption for sonata is quite bad.
but 1.5 vs 2.0 not fair la. smile_tongue.gif

my full tank for sonata can go 620km +- for mix highway, jam, city. I fill petrol around 60 litre when the warning light is "on"

for city... damn good. full tank each fill is 36 litre. And can go till 530km. smile_thumbup.gif

Hi adrwoon,

Can't deny that V6 engine is always more quiet than inline-4 engine due to the arrangement of cylinders. FC and pulling power (torque) wise, inline4 is better for below 2.5L engine. I am facing dirt and debris issue in my Forte's black interior, just too visible when contra with black. I just ignore it. Getting 7.8km/L for 2.4L in city driving FC is better than current Camry 2.4V at 7km/L.


My Nf 2.4 gave me 12ltr/100km or 8.3km/Ltr even I drove crazily in town 100%. I tried 100% highway and it could be as low as 7ltr/100km or 14.3km/Ltr @ 120kmh cruising; during mixed driving, normally the readings fall somewhere in between 9 - 10 ltr/100km depends on my 'right foot'. smile_tongue.gif

Who says Korean cars are 'drunken master'? 059.gif

By the way, my oil filter costs around RM18~ I don't know about other brands' segment D servicing charges but I think RM18 is really a good deal since I serviced at Hyunmal and not any 'tepi jalan' shops.

Hi guys.....i'm probably posting in the wrong thread but i'm about to put a down payment for a Sonata 2.0FS today and was wondering if anyone here came from driving a Nissan Sylphy or Toyota Camry? Reason i ask is if there are any sort of regrets in terms of build quality, stability & control, fuel consumption, service cost.....

I was confident i was going to get the Teana since i'm currently driving the Sylphy.....until i test drive the Sonata. IMO, it feels great but since it's only a test drive, still kinda hard to tell for sure so i'm hoping i can get some honest feedback on the Sonata. Just a simple short impression/feeling you've gotten for the time with your Sonata smile.gif

Thanks and have a great weekend

Try to get a more elaborate test drive. Last week, a soon to be owner came visit me in puchong and we met up for a test drive in my car for him to get a good feel over a longer stretch. I think he is going to book the car now just that his concern of 2.0 or 2.4. Mine is a 2.0. FYI, Teana will be a quiter drive due to the engine, a V6 and the seat comfort might be better as it is more family orientated; but the exterior look a bit more mature and sedate. In terms of handling and fuel consumption, Sonata YF beats it and the feature such as roof, 17" rims etc.

Hi ccc,

The NF's FC is already confirmed good for 2.0 and 2.4. The new YF, need more owners to post for us to view.


Hi scann69,

Get as much test drive as possible, bring few more friends to take turn to try out different thing. If possible, check for any friend who owned them. Make sure they are not working for any car company or related to prevent inaccurate and biased information.

From my tested and proven evaluation and from owners that are my colleagues and friends, just remove the Sylphy from your shortlist. Teana vs Sonata YF, I gave higher score to YF for overall score though Teana scores better in interior width, interior height and soft panels, it is inferior on other aspects.

Anyway, do bring group of friends to get more of the test drive, ask salesman to allow take turns. You'll need 3 batches of 4 men to get test drive until you'll feel boring and tried everything. That time is when you can feel and tell which is better. You get to cramp all available space, load with max cargo, bring friends who are very heavy in 1 of 3 batches to overload the car. Good car with good pulling power will not deteriorate much in performance when overloaded. Try with low end, mid end and high end power, don't just try to floor the car all time, won't prove anything.

Thanks for the reply guys. I just came from from a test drive with my wife. First off....the interior does feel plastic as compared to the Teana. Also the colour of the interior....feels kinda boring cos it's all black. That is just my opinion. As for responsiveness, Almost the same but in terms of features, the Teana is very lacking. Pretty much decided on the Sonata as of now. Will be going for another test drive tomorrow morning at another showroom as the one that served me today does not seem very knowledgeable.

Anybody got the Red colour Sonata smile_tongue.gif

Again thanks for the feedback guys. Much appreciated.

P/s: I did not hear any tick sound when i press the breaks as mentioned in another thread. FYI

Mileage: 1800km, fuel: Ron95, engine oil : Shell HX7, F & R Wheel : 35 & 34 psi.
Time: 2245, Weather: Clear, Traffic: Middle Busy.
Distance: Penang Island E-gate Tesco thru Penang Bridge to Juru AutoCity.
Reset Average Mileage Meter.
Result: 6.6~7.4L/100km, Speed: 65~110km/h, RPM: 1500~2500.
This is first time I manage to make Sonata YF hit the 6.6L/100km at the end point. Wow! Sonata YF Excellent FC!

I found out when it move on 80km/h @ 1800rpm it bring FC down a lot.
Bro & Sis please try & see can we get better FC.
