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.

Don't Buy Huyndai — Looks good but it sucks. 1 electrical repair early on then this week the engine light and ESC light came on and then the car died on the hwy. The local dealer closed so no cheap oil changes either. And the warranty: I should say bye to it cause the closest dealer is 2 hrs away and they towed my car there but they have tried already 2X to tell me I may not be covered for the tow or repair. Really with a less than 1 yr old car? DON'T BUY!!

Pros: warm seats, pretty exterior

Cons: It does not run!!

2008 Santa-fe Just Right! — Incrediblefuel economy for its size! Not overpowered,but not underpowered either. 2.7 litre v-6 is just right (just do not plan to tow more than a small boat that's all. If you want to pull heavy stuff then opt for the 3.3 litre! Otherwise the 2.7 is more than enough power for me anyway! Friend of mine has the 3.3 and regrets the fuel economy! (you are tempted to go faster and accelerate quicker with the 3.3!

Pros: Everything,heated seats etc...

Cons: none!
