Stands the Test of Time
Our Hyundai Santa Fe is over 10 years old and except for general maintenance we have had no out-of-pocket expense. The warranty on Hyundai's is exceptional.

Pros
Superior warranty
Dependable

Cons
None. I love this car.

Great little SUV
Hyundai did it best the first time with this SUV. We have two first generation Santa Fe's and love them. Reliable, simple and good looks

Pros
Had a 2013 Santa Fe, sold and bought the 06. More power, better built and better looks. Like the older one better

Totally comfortable,reliable, and darn attractive.
For 10 years I've owned my Santa Fe. I still have the original tires. Except for the regular maintenance the value in expense really can't be beat. It's so much fun to drive long distances are quite exhilarating. It's big but not too big. It stores a lot of cargo and the roof rack is mighty handy with toting large items.

Pros
Everything

Cons
Can't think of one con

Sante Fe Sport AWF
I have a 2006. It has been a fantastic car. I have NEVER had anything wrong w this vehicle in 111,000 miles, until the gas tank issue, which was covered under warranty. I was given a 2017 Sante Fe Sport AWD loaner car. That was a very smart strategy. It will definitely be my next car purchase!!!

Pros
Eye appeal, safety, reliability!

Cons
None

This ten year old Santa Fe has been a great vehicle
We happen to have two Hyundai Santa Fe's. One is a 04 LX and the other is a 06 GLS. We have owned the 04 for ten years and it has been a fantastic vehicle. We liked the 04 so much that we purchased a low milage 06 just this spring. Both santa fe's are fun to drive and well made. We plan on keeping these Santa Fe for a while. The size and the overall look and design of the first generation SM is a remarkable Hyundai.

Pros
We love the styling of the early Santa Fe's. They have a unique look and are a great size. These little Vehicles are simple and inexpensive to maintain. They have lots of features that most SUV's twice their cost don't even have.

Cons
We keep both polished, but the paint seems thin.
