I'm considering purchasing a 2016 Sonata SE (or maybe the Sonata Sport) as one of the larger dealers in my area is now offering the stripped Sonata SE's for $17,000. I test drove both an SE and a Sport. They both drove pretty well, but they exhibited a very noticeable lag in power response when taking off from a stop, and when stepping into the throttle when moving. There was almost a second of delay from pressing the accelerator before the engine responded. (In contrast the 2016 Camry I recently drove as a rental car had a very peppy throttle with no delays). I read some postings about a software patch to address this issue on the drive-by-wire system on the 2015 Sonata, so I would think this was already incorporated in the 2016's. Is anyone out there familiar with this issue? I really want to like this car more, but a sluggish right pedal is unacceptable. I miss the good old days of the mechanical throttle cable.
