Reliable, Not Luxury. Good For Commute — If u have a kid that's going to college or an everyday commute car and luxury is not a priority, this is it! Good on gas and reliable. Just maintain it properly like every other car and you are good to go.

Pros: Good for a family of 4 to 5 members. Roomy cargo. Good on gas. Cheap to maintain.

Cons: No a lot of horse power, but a small Family SUV don't need a race engine I guess.

Great Car! — I've owned my 2005 Santa Fe for 5 years and have loved it the entire time. It's been perfect for our family of 4 for vacations and around town travel. We've never had a single problem that I didn't create myself by breaking a metal piece off of it. It's done well in the snow, rain, etc.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It's a great car all around. I love the look, the low cost of maintenance, the cargo space.

Cons: Some low end metals used for parts.

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: good on gas for a little SUV

Cons: only a 5 seater I know its not a mini van

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: stereo

Cons: too many repairs!

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.

Pros: sturdy and reliable with lots of airbags

Cons: leg room for driver and passengers.

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.

Pros: not a cosly car

Cons: not a rigid car

Get a preferred or a luxury and you’ll get most of the safety features and that beautiful moonroof is worth it. I got the luxury version with the turbo engine. Good on gas and has a punch to it. Read More
