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!

Fun to drive for a cutesy station wagon. Handles like a car, nice interior layout, look, and quality materials. A little longer than some competitors grants more cargo space at the expense of urban parking ease and the exterior has a girly look, which many prefer; I just dont dig it myself.
