Pros

Handles exceptionally well; great hardware except for seat pockets on back seat, which came unstitched; low maintenance; comfortable seats; fun to drive.

Cons

night time interior blue lights on panel do not dim enough, very difficult to configure the back light to go out when door is closed but not locked because light buttons near mirror are unclear (they could easily rectify this with clear labeling on the lights)...still this is a minor issue...

A Great Vehicle To Own And Drive -- Comfortable, Good Fuel Economy And No Service Related Issues — Despite that the vehicle had one minor accident, which I checked out well prior to my purchase, this car has proven just as reliable as the three Honda Odyssey vans I have owned...would definitely buy one of these again! It was an adjustment to get used to the smaller cargo area after owning three vans, but the Santa Fe's cargo area is still quite generous. Beyond routine maintenance, this vehicle (now with 80k miles) has required nothing. I didn't go for the 4WD, as I buy snow tires at Sears (with road hazard) for all vehicles I own. I know it's a pain to install/remove them each year, but that's what works for me!!!

18 inch tires

Value, Value, Value! You Get A Lot For The Amount Of Money Spent. — Overall: 5 Stars Great value for the money! Performance: 5 Stars Excellent acceleration with the 275 HP V6. Brakes and steering seem to work real well. Ride is a little bit bouncy at times due to standard 18 inch tires. Build Quality: 4 1/2 stars No squeaks or rattles. But the tailgate doesn't always close on the first few attempts and the key FOB doesn't always open all the doors with two quick clicks. Appearance: 5 Stars Restyled front nose for 2010 makes the exterior look of this car a real winner. Front dash, leather interior and blue tooth are awesome! Cost of Ownership: 5 Stars Got 23 mpg on the first fill using economode. Excellent warranty! Fun Factor: 5 Stars Outstanding acceleration and handling for a SUV, blue tooth setup, and lots of room with back seat flat on floor.

Pros

Appearance is good

Cons

Road Grip is horrible

25

With Road Grip It Would Be The Best One — There is no road grip or as they call it stability on road and this creates issues and risks on road. Otherwise good vehicle with appearance and gadgets. capacity is good, improvement in seat covers would make it great. so please improve road grip and seat covers

The All Arounder — great all around and cant beat the cargo layout. Lots of amenities Fun for the whole family and especially the driver! I would suggest this car for the utilitarian as well as the driving enthusiast. Room for the furry kids too!

Pros

Lots of pep, selective shift option, easy on gas (relatively).

Cons

The biggest drawback is the space for a bigger person to fit in comfortably.

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, and the handling is pretty good for a smaller SUV. The Limited Edition has all the bells and whistles, including heated seats, power sunroof, reclining rear seats and power/heated mirrors to name just a few. A respectable towing capacity is also a bonus for anyone wanting to tow a small tent trailer or maybe a quad or snowmobile for that weekend getaway. Overall, not a bad vehicle. I'm still looking forward to getting it really off road to see how it handles some mud and snow.

For shorter people the height makes it harder to get in and out of - our old caravan was not as high off the ground

We Are Very Happy With Our Purchase. — We only have it for one month so it's tough to really review it. So far it drives very well, and is very comfortable. Could not understand why one Quebec retailer was able to give us a $3,500 cash discount and others could not.
