#4 of 27 Idling bad for turbo according to owners manual
Jan 05, 2011 (4:24 pm)
I just purchased a 2011 Sonata turbo. So I am sitting going through the owners manual and up pops a warning about idling this car for more than 3 minutes. I checked with the dealership and a tech there said that idling for any length of time can cause the cooling oil to overheat. How is one supposed to stay warm in winter or cool in summer if the car cant idle. Also , has anyone noticed and amount of carbon soot build up on those pretty chrome exhaust pipes? Dealer said turbos run richer. Can anybody reassure me that I made a sound buy now? Also there is a limit to the amount of amps you can draw from the accory outlets to run things like a computer or whatever and the limit is only 10 watts. I kind of wish I had read an owners manual first.

In every other turbo car, you have to let the turbo cool down before shutting the engine off, after you romp on it. Maybe the 3min is for the breakin period.
The soot is normal, as is alittle oil usage. They have to run alittle rich, if they run lean they get way too hot.
Ya modern acc plugs are a pain. If they dont say lighter then they wont handle 10-15amps (read 150watts). Still a 1amp acc plug seems low.

I just leased the Turbo when my BMW 5 series xi was coming to a close. The ONLY thing I miss is the heated steering wheel. In ALL other areas this car matches the BMW - I can't believe it. Interior roominess, head room, amenities, legroom, interior AND exterior design, nav system, auto/manual option, TURBO RESPONSE. For me it came down to the VW CC and the Sonata Turbo. The MAJOR point for me was "...but it's a Hyundai...".
Well - no effing more - from now on I'll have to say BECAUSE it's a Hyundai.
Personal plug for the folks at KEY Hyundai in Milford CT. NOT PRESSURE. No need. The freaking car sells itself....
