Nice Suv...quiter Than My Honda And More Options Than My Toyota — Pros... New Santa Fe Limited.. Nice looking and quite ride. Lots of options and layout.better warranty than most..(warranty after that is a marketing tool....) Different levels of it to buy. Will buy the diesel when it comes out, soon. Cons.. V6 needs little more power for its weight.which hurts it gas mileage... Speedo has mileage marked off in 20mile increments.. need the 10,30, 50 etc to be shown also. IPOD connections is poor location in console. This auto is not the cheap auto as in past years..options can be expensive, too. KIA is the cheaper brand, now. Hyundai is going like toyota, with low brand, middle brand and upscale brand.

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.

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

Pros

Great fun to drive and great AWD system

Cons

Gas consumption only ok, not great

35

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.

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

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.

I Think It Is A Good Value For The Price. — acceleration,braking and handling on the highway is great. too early to say about build quality since i have put only 200 miles on the car since i bought it.
