    The 2012 Sonata might be five years old, but it remains competitive with today's models in terms of performance and mpg capabilities. The GLS Sonata trim level comes packed with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 198 horsepower and delivers 184 pound-feet of torque. This is paired with a six-speed manual transmission as the standard transmission although there were some models outfitted with an optional six-speed automatic transmission. The 2012 Sonata GLS Sedan's 2.4-liter engine gets an EPA-estimated 24 miles per gallon in the city and 35 miles per gallon on the highway. That's a combined average of 28 mpg which makes the 2012 sedan still very competitive in terms of fuel economy with today's vehicle models.

    The 2012 Sonata GLS Sedan feels like a high-end vehicle. The interior gives off a sharp, modern, and upscale appearance with a seamless dashboard and center stacking outfitted with precision-built knobs, switches, and similar controls. Hyundai's Blue Link telematics service offers critical services for Whitefish Bay drivers, services like emergency crash response, turn-by-turn navigational assistance via the touch screen, remote opening of the sedan's door locks, and even unique speed and curfew limits for new drivers. In fact, all of these tech features make the 2012 Sonata GLS Sedan an ideal pick for Whitefish Bay families with teenagers just starting to drive.

Sure, there is a lot to love about buying a new Hyundai or another make vehicle. There is the attractive warranty package and the simple pleasure of being the first to make a model yours.

When you purchase a used vehicle, you get to sidestep a lot of the expensive new car fees that come standard when purchasing a new year model in Whitefish Bay and other Wisconsin towns.

Then there's also the depreciation benefits. New vehicles can lose as much as 40% of their value the moment Milwaukee owners drive it off the lot. With a used vehicle, you don't have to worry so much about depreciation as used vehicles will often hold onto their value. Depending on the driver, you can typically expect lower insurance rates for older vehicles.
