You are in the Hyundai Sonata
What is this discussion about?

Yeah, and I take issue that I have had to have two service bulletins applied on my 2006 Civic (6K miles)to correct specific noises (one rerouted and added a longer serpentine belt the other replaces a motor mount) AND both rear shocks leaked out and needed replaced under warranty....so much for Honda build quality!!! This Civic has had more problems in under 7,000 miles than the last 2 Hyundai products I owned combined, a 2002 and 2003 Santa Fe..
In keeping with the original intent of this thread I would like to see a remote starter added.

I would like to see the linkage re-programed so that one could start off more slowly. I believe this change would improve gas mileage, especially in city driving. It's too easy to start with a jerk now.

You are joking, right??? Try not tromping the accelerator to the floorboard.

Along with other changes I'd like to see the ignition moved to the column. Banging keys can be annoying.

I definitely am not joking, Our I4 is very touchy in that respect. My wife complains about it also. Have owned about 30 cars so far and this one is the worst in that respect. We are both conservative drivers.

Craig, I like the igniton in the dash (mine's an '05). I never liked the ignition on the steering column. Keys would sometimes hit my leg.
I've got 3 keys, the fob & a small swiss army knife on my key ring. For lack of a better description, I get some "banging keys" when the fob is facing "in" and almost no banging keys when the fob is facing "out." Try reversing your ignition key, or putting a sound deadening material below the ignition switch it that doesn't work.
(Remember the botton or lever the driver had to push in order to take the key out of the ignition?)

I thought about putting something there to deaden the sound. If I wasn't so lazy I would take my other keys off with the keychain thingy that comes apart, which I have. Around town I just listen to it, but if I take a road trip I'll seperate them.
Yes I'm old enough to remember the buttons and levers. Some newer manual trans vehicles on our lot still have the lever. Go figure.

Re: keys rattling against dash. My key fob is mounted to a ring about 3/4" in diameter. After the car is running I just turn it around and hang it on the ignition key. That pins it against the dash and... voila... no noise.
#47 of 69 Folding Mirrors

I would love to see the side mirrors be able to fold. In NYC with double parked cars, etc. you need to be able to fold your mirror.
The car doors should lock automatically once the car is put into gear or goes 5 miles per hour not 15mph.

The dealer can set the "doors lock" from 05 to 20 mph. The service department can do it in a few minutes
