Great Appearance, Great Ride — This is a great family vehicle without being a van. Also impressive as personal vehicle. Pickup is awesome. You sit up a little higher than a sedan, so visibility is greater. It also safer than a sedan, not only because it is AWD, but also because so many vehicles are higher today. It is very convenient for those times when you need to pick up something you just cannot fit into a sedan.

My Dream Is Now A Reality — It has been a dream of mine to one day own an SUV. I am so glad this one became my first. It has never let me down mechanically and it's ecstatically pleasing to look at. Other than the terrible gas mileage, I can't say anything else bad about this particular vehicle. I love it!

Okay Vehicle — 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. - back up camera, navigation

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 the Hyundai pricing was great

Great Value! Something That Will Be Part Of My Family As We Grow. — My new 2010 Santa Fe Limited AWD with navigation. This Santa Fe is comfortable, and the navigation/xm radio is something I do not know how I drove before with out it! Great suv switched because of the outstanding value, and innsurance ratings. Also love the in dash back up camera, sure makes it easier to get out of a tight parking spot.

Great fun to drive and great AWD system

Cons

Gas consumption only ok, not great

Love It, Would Buy It Again — Acceleration is very good if you have the 3.3litre engine, feels peppy and fun to drive for a crossover. Build quality is good although some plastics are on the cheap side. Exterior styling is, as always with the santa fe, sort of bizarre, somewhat of an aquired taste, but still looks quite good.

Excellent Value — I like everything about the car. Smooth and quick. Great engineering and style. Great warranty and value. Drives and rides like a more expensive car. Front wheel drive is excellent in snow. Don't see a need for AWD. Fun factor Scale 1-10, a 10. No negative surprises. 20 mpg all around driving. Excellent accelleration. Quick steering makes it easy to park.
