Car and Driver was impressed, but said to wait for the next gen version to solve remaining drivetrain problems, etc.

When driving the car it handled quite well, IMO better than my '06 GT, although it came up short in power/acceleration. Also liked the exhaust note, IMO better than VQ35/37 engines. In the end, the coupe just didn't have enough power to satisfy more, and paying $30+k for the Track version with Brembos and sportier suspension didn't sit too well with me (but, if they could somehow fit the 4.6L V-8 from the Genesis sedan or the upcoming 2.0L 274hp turbo four for the Sonata, I'd be considerably more interested)
