I think if you leave early in the morning and its not raining you should be ok without much problem. If you leave mid day you will tend to run into traffic, but bearable compared to some other places. One suggestion is do not rent the car unless you really need it and take the train which is convenient and you will not have to deal with traffic issues.

As your next question suggests you plan to come in the morning...that is no problem at all - less then an hour and you reach Budapest from Siofok. If you change your plan, then you can run into traffic jam. On a sunny weekend tons of people visit the Lake Balaton and returns from it to Budapest on Sunday afternoon or evening.
So to be on the safe side, leave no later then 2 pm and you will be fine.
I would definately do not recomment train: it takes at least twice as much time as by car and on Sunday afternoon they are crowded, likely no aircon - only a public transport fanatic would choose it over a car. :)
