I'm really liking the 2011 Hyundai Sonata . It's a tad over what I was budgeting, but compares very favourably or better than the Accord, Camry and Altima.

Adrian, I saw an episode of Motorweek last week where they did a shootout with 10 or so family sedans, and the Sonata was their first choice. I think it was in conjunction with cars.com if that makes searching easier.

Thanks Mark, I just watched a test of the '11 Sonata on PBS's Motorweek. They seemed quite impressed with the car as have the major car magazines.

Be careful with Motorweek. I don't think they've ever reviewed a car they didn't like.

Maybe I should tell the producer to lower his happy pills?!

I gave up on that show after they evaluated an SUV's offroad capabilities by driving down a dirt road with a couple of puddles.

Many of the other magazines, MT, CD and R&T, have tested the '11 Sonata and it would appear to be at least as good as the major players in the mid-size market and likely cheaper with a few more bells and whistles to boot. Agreed on Motorweek though, they aren't particularily critical of any vehicle they test.
