"We've owned our Santa Fe for a few years now, I can honestly say, just a great vehicle! Gasoline mileage is a bit high however all other features are outstanding! We drove from Connecticut to Florida uneventful. No oil burn, uses Syn-Blend oil, runs like a champ! Interior and exterior after 10 years is an 8 plus. Great wear on seats and paint still shines like new. All lights still work with the exception of the gear selector lamp is out. Overall, very please with this Santa Fe...Next auto will be a Santa Fe!"

"Have had this car for three years and have done nothing but pour money into it. It's now sitting a repair garage awaiting $3-4000 worth of repairs. We told them no way. That's more than what this car is worth!!! Don't buy...spend your money on something other than a Hyundai!!"

"Just made first major repair -- new radiator -- at 204,000 miles. Only other non-routine time in shop was for a stalling recall in 2002. Best vehicle we've ever owned. Only wish back seats would fold completely flat."
