I'm having a serious sense of deja vu. Then again, it's more of a memory of something that really happened. I checked my archives. In a previous rant, I said pretty much the same thing about the Kia Sorento: The mic for the phone is in absolutely the wrong place in the Hyundai Sonata.
It's great for the driver, situated just on the left side, near the driver's window but in front of the sun visor. It's bad if you have your sister in the car after Easter mass and are trying to call your parents in Florida to talk to them together.
The conversation went something like this:
Sister: Can you hear me?
Jill: Can you hear Jenny?
Dad: No. How was her week?
I look to my sister who says it was good.
Mom: What are your plans today?
Dad: Are you going to the gym?
I look to my sister who says yes.
Jill: Jenny says yes ...
You get the idea. It was a peculiarly one-sided conversation, and very little fun for me.
So, I put this plea out to you Hyundai (who own's Kia): Please, please, please move the mike to the center.
