Pros: "Reliable, hardy, safe, fun to drive"

Cons: "The interior accents are cheap and fall apart/peel"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I love my Santa Fe. It's almost 11 years old and by far the most reliable car I've owned, not to mention the most bang for my buck. My only disappointment is that the "chrome" interior turned out to be a glued on facade of chrome, and they have started to warp/buckle/peel in the California sun. Regardless, I'm planning on driving straight to a local Hyundai dealership and getting another Santa Fe when I decide to splurge on a new car. Thanks, Hyundai!"

"244000 miles and reliable and comfortable. I take long trips with this care and get reasonable gas milage (better milage when it had less miles). Lots of convenience features and great value for the money. Both my daughters own Sante Fe's and likewise never have any trouble. One daughter has 176,000 and the other has 140,000."
