Outstanding value for the moneyThis is a well made, comfortable crossover with a lost of extras. Would definitely buy another Hyundai.
Pros: Comfort, this suv is made very well
Cons: Miles per gallonLove everything about the car but the gas consumption. My Sante Fe gets 11 miles to the gallon. It's a killer.
Cons: seating pacefamily loves ,hyundai because its reiable
Perhaps a lemon
Pros: Roomy, rear window opens
Cons: unreliable, I won't trust it on long tripsAlways something wrong. Brakes constantly need new pads and/or rotors (the driver used to drive stick shift and rarely uses the brakes). Sensors often in need of replacement - check engine light is on often. All ignition coils had to be replaced;catalytic converter had to be replaced at 35,000 miles. Mileage on the poor side (although I have the 3.5L engine).
Pros: powerful V6 engine
Cons: manual fold down rear seatBought this Santa Fe new several months back. I was really surprised by the quality and comfort of this SUV. The features like xm and bluetooth standard were nice added touch. I have been super pleased with the vehicle and power of the V6 is great.
Cons: No backup sensors as I told the salesman I wanted!I traded a Tahoe in for 2 Hyundai's so I really downgraded. My Hyundai is fine. Nothing great but nothing horrible. I would like to Comment on Hyundai Cerritos. Please be sure if you go to this dealership that you get everything in writing. Do not tell the salesman what you want, write it down and keep a duplicate copy! The salesman doesn't really care once the bank OK's the financing. He will promise the worls then when you call him on it says 'oh well, I'm a salesman, what do you expect'! Not a good experience but the ares are fine.
