It works for us.
Our 2009 Santa Fe Limited has always been a third vehicle. It has always been parked outside. It currently has less than 75,000 miles on it. It has always returned mediocre gas mileage, less than the original advertised mpg. It has had a few weird part failures, e.g., stereo subwoofer? (in the rear of the vehicle), gas tank sensors, and have replaced the headlight assemblies myself. Overall, it is a great sized vehicle for us. It is comfortable, everything works (until it doesn't, which is less often than expected). Based on our ownership of this 2009 Santa Fe and a 2013 Elantra GT driven by an offspring, I would highly recommend looking at Hyundai when considering a new vehicle. We may be purchasing a new vehicle later this year for another offspring and are seriously examining this brand.
