"This is the best car I have ever owned. I was a little hesitant when I first bought it 10 years ago because Hyundai did not have a good reputation back then. Well, it turned out to be the best SUV ever! It has never given me any problems whatsoever. Besides normal wear and tear and regular maintenance, like oil changes, tires, and batteries, I can proudly say this SUV has never let me down. I am now thinking of getting a new Santa Fe and I am afraid the new one won't be as reliable as my old one."

"Good, reliable, smooth ride, great power, comfortable, fold-down seats give room of a small truck for moving to Christmas trees. Would keep for grandson but need the money."

"This is the best vehicle I have ever owned. I have taken it on several trips from the Midwest to the South and moved many, many, things in it. Its a perfect size vehicle for a family, road trip, or for moving. The trunk holds plenty of space. I've even used it to lay in for a drive-in movie. It's reliable, and the only issue I have had with it is with it's alignment. The car actually has sensors on the gas and break that adjust to the driver."

"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."
