The only model that has the Stability Control is the CXS and starts at $35440. That is $10,100 more than the sticker price of my Sonata Limited. As for GPS, you need the OnStar that costs $200 a year for the base program plus $100 for navigation. For the cost of one year, I can get a Garmin or Tom Tom that fits into any car I own. Over a five year period, I'd spend $11,600 more to get the same features in the Lucerne. My LeSabre has OnStar. After the free year ran out, I never re-newed and never missed it. I was pretty serious about buying a Lucerne, but the Sonata is just a much better value, IMO. After 8 months and 15,000 miles, I'm still liking the Sonata as much as the day I bought it. Performance and handling are outstanding. It has not needed any warranty service either, only oil changes so far. -- Ed http://pages.cthome.net/edhome/
