Love the Vehicle; hate what they took away
Pros: Love the way it drives.
Cons: not having outside tempI 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.
Pros: heated seats, power sun roof
Cons: nothing yet
Advice: buy it ... you will like the carnice smooth ride on the turnpike. seats are very comfortable during extended trips. very quiet interior,great audio system 20-21 mpg highway so far not 24mpg as advertised turning radius is nice and tight for a suv.
Pros: 2nd row reclining seat backs
Cons: No auto locking door feature when shifted into drive
Advice: Put this vehicle on your list when shopping for a SUV/CUVGood looking and overall a nice vehicle. It's not perfect but for the price and the great warranty it is a very good value. I do wish it had a few more standard features such as automatic locking doors when shifted into Drive, back up sensor monitors and power passenger seat on Limited model.
