"This vehicle was a great purchase. So much so that I'm looking into getting another Hyundai. I am thinking of downsizing though, I've driven an SUV for quite sometime that it is now the right time to downsize. This vehicle took me through many vacations, north and south and across country. This vehicle took me through several winters as well. A vehicle I could count on! This was an excellent purchase and I would recommend this vehicle to anyone. You won't be sorry! I only hope you have as much fun with your Hyundai as I had with mine!"

"I have had this car since it was new. It now has 275,000 miles on it. No major repairs. Engine still runs good, needs an air conditioning motor at this point. This car has been so dependable and just kept going and going."

"With a minimum of maintenance, this car has been very reliable and easy and fun to drive. We've taken long trips with it and have been comfortable with plenty of room for the two of us and the dog. The only items that have we've had to replace is the timing belt which we've changed every 60,000 miles. Overall MPG is around 25-27."

"I bought this from a friend in 2010. Have not regreted it one bit. I had to buy this car because my much beloved Mitsubishi Galant (more on that one later) was totaled buy a deer. The 3.5L 6Cyl will stand up on its rear wheels! Gas mileage for this small (compared to todays)Sante Fe is only 24mpg and 25mpg on a good day. The Auto AC settings only work on the floor not in the panel where it should be. Once you set it, it maintains temp pretty good."

"Immaculately maintained, single owner. All records retained. This dependable car will remain in peak condition with continued attention to maintenance. It is extremely sure-footed and has new tires as of October. Service within the last year includes: rear calipers, rotors, and new brakes, front suspension balljoints and alignment,and suspension control front arm."

"Reliable vehicle the whole time I have owned it. Would change the immovable seat belt connection, digs into hip on driver's side. Steering wheel a bit too large for small hands."
