"I bought this 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe in 2011. When I purchased the vehicle it had 180,000 miles on it. I traveled 1800 miles to another state, no problem. I have had the oil changed consistently. Yes, I have had problems. But, 220,000 miles on the original engine? Awesome!! Love this vehicle and still got it. That's what's up!!!"

"This car was reliable and a pleasure to drive. We had relatively no problems with this car until we reached 150,000. After that we started having problems, first moderate and then severe. We finally donated the car because it was going to be too expensive to get it inspected."
