2005 Hyundai Santa Fe Review Ratings
2005 Hyundai Santa Fe Review
sturdy and reliable with lots of airbags
leg room for driver and passengers.
Good Family Car, — this is my wife's car. its too small for me to drive. not enough leg room. it still drives nice, but i also drove the new 2008 santa fe, and boy what a difference. the 2008 drives like an azera. would switch in a blink. but we are stuck with financing, and the new model destroyed the retail value of the old santa fe. still its a 4x4 and my wife loves it.

good on gas for a little SUV
only a 5 seater I know its not a mini van
My Little Santa Fe — have it for 6 months now. took one 500 mile trip. got about 22 mpg on the HWY & 19 in the city. Acceleration is ok for 2.7 L. handling not up-to my expectations. Overall like it the way it is. Would definitely recommend it to my friends.

2005 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS 3.5L Review
not a cosly car
not a rigid car
My Hyundai Santa Fe — Actually it is not a bad car but it is not for long years of use The quality of production is not so high, it can not be compared with the German or Japanese cars. It's spare parts are cheap compared with the other's. Acceleration is good, the break system also good,A.C is good.

Comfortable, LOADED comfort and safety-wise, cute car, fun to drive, versatile.
Braking system isn't what it should be, materials less than optimal.
Comfortable Car, Just Not Up To Snuff In Quality. — This car's got everything you could ask for and it is so comfortable and quiet to drive! But Hyundai skimped on the material quality and so in the year and a half I had this car I had two accidents (due to brakes not working as they should) and a host of squeaks by the time I traded this one in.
2005 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS 3.5L AWD Review
too many repairs!
Ok, Just Ok — tired of repairs. just had brakes done a year ago no they need it again? comfortable to drive and plenty of storage room in the back. it has good acceleration. it also has a good factory stereo. but agin, too many repairs in the last eighteen months that I've owned it- brakes, cracked distibutor cap, new spark plug wires, new tires.

Sad That The One Bad Thing Outweighs All The Good. Update!
In general I love the (2012) car, but the fact that it is seriously underpowered is making me trade it in. There simply is no power!! I have the 2.4L AWD automatic transmission model and there is sim... Read More

Nice Vehicle If You Want Something Affordable, Dependable, And The Best Warranty Around.
Loads of pep, and the gas mileage is pretty decent with the V6 and the AWD. There is a nice option to lock the transfer case for true 4WD. The 18 inch wheels look good, until you have to buy tires, ... Read More
This has been an okay car. Previous car was rx300 2000, so I was used to a smooth ride. This just doesn't accelerate the same way. I wish it had more pick up and better options fpr convenience. - b... Read More
An All Around Great Family Car.
Great family car. Get the larger 6 cyl engine. There is too much hesitation when you punch it on the beltway. Handles great plenty of room for people and cargo. Very easy to manuver and park plus t... Read More
