I'm really looking hard at the sx model but wonder about the reliability and if they got the left pull fixed. I do see the wastegate fix/problems and hope that both have been fixed with the 12'.


How is the leather and overall condition of the car held up? I assume that some of the 11 owners have 35k-40k (I've seen some on here and the optmiaforums)

I'm really between opmtia and accord/ sonata (same care I know)

my 2012 SX developed a left pull during acceleration after 7000 miles. Had the alignment checked, tires checked. Just all of a sudden decided it wanted to have excessive torque steer.....everyone whos checked it says its normal. But I know its not normal, because if when i test drove the car it had this amount of torque steer during acceleration, I wouldnt have bought it.

I'd be surprised if I have this car in another 6 months.

Interesting but your idea is correct. Under warranty, I have dealer scan for torque converter lock up or differential function. It's not your suspension unless you kinked a tie rod.

Had my 2011 for about a year and a half now. No big issues but I think the brakes are a little soft. The dealer checked them out and said they were fine. Might just be this car because I don't think anyone else has said anything about a soft brake pedal on this site. I seem to recall that Motor Week said something about a soft brake pedal on the Sonata they tested a while back.
