Dependable and fun to drive.
After nine years of ownership & 205K miles the Santa Fe is still dependable & fun to drive. Looking forward to 300K milestone.

Pros
The 3.3L V6 engine is a beast. Keeps running & the acceleration is still great.

A true Santa Fe fan
This is my second Santa Fe, and I can say I am convinced this is the model I am most excited about. The limited features are well worth it if you do a lot of driving. The extra room and comforts are what makes it the best option for a family.

Great car
A great car. Have had three. Still have 2. Reliable. Sturdy. Fast. Comfortable.

Pros
Fast. Sturdy. Reliable.

Cons
It’s back hatch is hi and heavy as I’m 5’2”.
Suv has a rougher ride than a sedan. Not the vehicle’s fault.

I love my Hyundai Santa Fe
It is a pleasure to drive my Santa Fe. This car performs well in snow and ice. I am pleased with the approximate 24 mpg this car gets on average. My only complaint is that my NAV/radio system stopped working in about 4 years. The entire system had to be removed, shipped out of country for repairs, then re-installed. I had to bear the total expense for this repair. In about 2 years, the radio/CD player began to work only intermediately. According to the service department, the radio/CD can not be fixed. I was told I must buy a complete new system at an exorbitantly high price.

My 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe
I bought it used from King Hyundai in 2016, with 47K miles. After a bad purge valve was replaced, and, later, the lifters for the cargo door, I have found the vehicle reliable and pleasant to drive. My only complaint is that the adjustability of the driver's seat is limited. The after-sale service I have subsequently received has been entirely satisfactory.

Pros
Reliable transportation and generally comfortable to drive.

Cons
Usual headlamp lens clouding; limited adjustability of driver's seat; poor readability of digital clock in sunny conditions.
