    2005 Hyundai Santa Fe

    50 yrs driving; best car ever

    Pros: Safety and comfort

    Cons: Originally not crazy about the looks, but learned to like

    Santa Fe is outstanding. I just wish I could afford a new one. This is my second in last 8 years; both purchased new and they are awesome .

    2007 Hyundai Santa Fe

    Cons: having to replace tires and brakes after only 22000 miles

    it used to be that when you purchased a new vehicle that you would not have to replace anything . and telling me that it is normal for tires and brakes to be changed after only 22,000 miles is wrong. they opted to go with softer rubber compound and cheaper parts.

    2003 Hyundai Santa Fe

    Excellent bang for the buck.

    Pros: Handles well. Feels stable on the road.

    Cons: Sticky accelorator which seems common on this car.

    I bought the Santa Fe new and have been the primary driver. There have been no major repairs, only normal replacement of tires, batteries and accessories for the entire 7 years/90,000 miles. I plan to buy another.

    2008 Hyundai Santa Fe

    No Wonder Hyundai sales are soaring

    Pros: dual zone climate control

    Cons: mileage about 21.3 mpg average

    I'm seeing more and more Santa Fe SUV's on the road these days and no wonder. They look great, drive great, have the best Warranty in America, are loaded with features such as 4 wheel ABS brakes with traction control, electronic stability control, heated leather seats sunroofs(option) dual zone climate control (the wife loves this feature) tilt steering powerful V6 engines, split fold flat rear seats with extra storage in the back, remote power outlets in the back just to name a few. Ive owned two of them a 2007 and a 2008 and I wouldn't trade it for any other SUV in its class and I tested many. Did I mention 5 years courtesy roadside assistance? Ask Toyota if they give you that. Just drive one and you'll be the next thrilled Santa Fe owner.

    2009 Hyundai Santa Fe

    Love the Vehicle; hate what they took away

    Pros: Love the way it drives.

    Cons: not having outside temp

    I love my new Santa Fe but hate it that Hyundai took the outside temp, the range (before running out of gas) and the steering wheel radio control off the 2009 that I bought. I had a 2008 and didn't realize my 2009 didn't have these things 'til I had driven it quite a few miles.
