A Very Nice And Cute Car! — The car has a very progressive styling. The car is roomy and even the rear seats have a lot of leg room and are very comfortable. The illumination (deep blue) at night and the buttons/switches are very pleasant and easy to work with. The only complaint i have at the moment is that the steering wheel does not have the radio controls on them..But, it is really not a biggie

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: price, features,

Cons: wish the radio controls were on the steering wheel

Excellent Car To Own — Very dependable. Nice smooth ride, the wider wheel base makes it very luxurious when driving on the highway because you don't feel top heavy like in other SUVs. Excellent family care for someone who is looking for some extra room without resorting to a van or a gas hog.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very dependable. Nice smooth ride, the wider wheel base makes it very luxurious when driving on the highway because you don't feel top heavy like in other SUVs

Cons: The Canister Purge Solenoid went out at 50,000 miles because of the overflow on the gas tank

Nice And Reliables Suv, With Plenty Of Cargo Space. — It has a lot of power and its fun to drive. Although MPG sucks in the city, on the highway its pretty decent. The original battery did not last long, did leave me stranded on two occasions. Other than that, I Love the style and performance.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Handling, Power, and plenty of cargo space.

Cons: MPG

Great Deal, Great Car — My wife's '08 Santa Fe Limited AWD has 85,000 miles on it and has been great. Can't beat the cost, we bout it new (as a dealer demo) for $25,000 and it has Everett option including 3rd row and rear seat entertainment. Did have to have the idler pulley replaced but that was pretty cheap, other than that everything is stock including breaks (not tires). I would recommend and will look at Hyundai again when it is time to replace my old beater.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Comfort, style, price

Cons: None yet

Love To Drive — Man did I love this car. From the light in the cup holder to the light blue back light on the dash and the easy to clean upholstery. I loved everything about this car!! The extra AC adapter plugs in the back seat and trunk, The quality of the craftsmanship was unsurpassed in its class.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Handled so well, even with out AWD drove perfectly in any unstable terrain (mud, snow, sand etc.)

Cons: Wish it had a third row

Love It — It has enough power to have the get up and go, excellent handling - especially in the snow, excellent price for quality and package. It is roomy and comfortable and I don't feel squished. The warrenty is amazing from Hyundai and I always get great service there.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great buy

Cons: wish i had power adjustable seats and butt warmers :) but I guess you can get them in it.

Very Well Built, Quality Suv, Highly Recommended. — I've driven this SUV for the last year and a half. It handles very well in all kinds of weather conditions. During a recent snow storm, the AWD lock feature, the stability control, made it very easy to feel safe. I'd easily purchase 2 of these cars as daily drivers for my wife and I. She however drives so many miles, we're looking to get a bit better MPG. We average around 22MPG with 80% highway 20% city driving. The style is much better than most "family" cars, with easy access to the back seat/storage areas. Maintenance on the car is typical, however, 0 major issues have happened in the 60,000 miles we've put on it. Performance lacks a bit in acceleration, but it's easily overshadowed by the comfortable quiet ride. This is my second Sante Fe, and I'm open to finding another one in the future.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Safety, AWD, Quality

Cons: MPG a bit lower than class

Drive Your Way :d — It has magnificient performance according to its weight. It is quite a bit much on Fuel consumption is 9.2 lt./100km, on the other hand, that car can reach high milegeas unproblematically, however, it can used not only in city also in dirt. You can drive this car on 4WD which means 4 wheel driver, also you can close the 4WD, with one button, eventually, this car offers to you real enjoy.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Suv, 4WD

Cons: Nothing.

Not Bad For A Grocery Getter. — well, like i said, its a front wheel drive and a V-6 at that, so i cant really say much more than that about hter performance. its relativly fun to drive, though payments are a little high for my budget. its especially cheap as far as maintanence and fuel mileage goes. with 4 wheel disk brakes itll shut down like a stuck in mud, and will hand good on snow and ice relatively depending on the driver. i think i should've gotten the MDX Turbo though.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: cheap, looks good, drives good.

Cons: not enough horsepower, the trans is a little slow.
