Pros

This car has been an excellent vehicle. I will buy a Hyundai Santa Fe only because I now need a larger car.
I have been very fortunate in that I have never needed to have major repairs, gas mileage has always been excellent.

Pros
Great car, excellent gas mileage, has never needed any major repairs.

Cons
Only its size, I have outgrown it and feel I need a larger car.

Secure
I purchased my 2005 Hyundai because it was affordable. It was the first 4 door auto I had ever owned. I always had 2 door or sports vehicles before. I have found this car to be comfortable, and not too large. Also, I feel safe while driving it.

Pros
It's dependable, even after sitting for 2 weeks it started up without a problem. It's a 4 door car, but small enough for me to handle.

Love my car
It runs well, and is professionally serviced when needed, by West Escondido Automotive & Transmission. Never have had any problems in the twelve years that I've owned this vehicle.

Great car, no problems.

Okay for reliability
Always need reliability and Hyundai has proven that for me.

Cons
Because it was bought for economy it lacks a lot in comfort for long trips.

The engine.
I love my car, it's fast and it runs super well on gasoline.

Pros
Runs great on gas. It's a small car but has a really big trunk--very spacious. Four door makes it better than a two door. Mine is a GT so it's fast.

Cons
It's an older vehicle so you're gonna have to add some money to the car.
