Would not recommend
Too many electrical or computer chip problems. Gas gauge did not work after about 60,000 miles (they wanted $600 to replace, it's a computer chip, this is rampant based on other reviews and Hyundai is really doing everyone a disservice by not issuing a recall. Now the accelerator computer chip is acting up.

Pros
Nice styling

Cons
Major computer and electrical problems

Extraordinary vehicle
I was looking for a crossover vehicle. I shopped online and came ready to drive Toyota, Kia, Jeep, etc. Walking down the line of vehicles, I saw an impressive looking vehicle and asked the salesperson what it was. He said it was a Hyundai Sante Fe. I was immediately impressed. It had nice styling and was in mint condition- metallic gray that looked slate blue in the sunlight. The vehicle outrode and outdrove all the other crossovers I was interested in- and at a significantly better price. The creature comforts also shut down the other competitors. The luxury and power surpassed all the others, too. What a ride. I love it.

Pros
Everything. Sun roof. Cloth seats. Space. Power and acceleration. Hidden storage. Luxury. Suspension. Interstate ride. Quiet interior.

Cons
The only negative is the 2008 Santa Fe seems a little rough taking surface road seams, etc. but you get used to it fast and it is not an ongoing problem. You only take note of it in comparison to the interstate ride of the vehicle which is off the charts.

Always a 10, love this car.
I love my 2008 Santa Fe Limited with leather interior. Has not needed much more than regular maintenance. It has been driven 57,000 miles, is a smooth ride and I can't see trading it for any car other than a Santa Fe.

Pros
The ratings I have given speak for the car.

Love This Vehicle
I find the Santa Fe to everything I needed. I'm a grandma and love being able to have ease of access for car seats, booster seats, et al.
Daughter was driving this, hit a deer in upstate NY, had 18 mos w-her ... damage sustained to the vehicle, but she and baby were safe - so grateful.
I find great external and internal visibility. Love the split second seat ... transports everything. I have a splash mat in the rear which is fantastic during rainy or sloppy weather.
I know the day will eventually come that I may have to purchase another vehicle - hate the thought of that. But, I do know I'd get ahold of Richard Finch at Green Hyundai. No hesitation.
