I have been looking to replace brake pads for my Hyundai Santa Fe. I was told that the year of my truck was a 2000. However when searching for the vehicle, the year starts in 2001. What's going on?
Open the door and look on the jam, there should be sticker with your cars info and a manufactured date. If it is late 2000, you have a 2001.
Check the vehicle registration or title for year.
Who ever told you it was a 2000, was probably confusing the Date of Manufactuer (ex: 6/2000) with the Model Year. A 2001 Model would have been manufactured in the year 2000 right thru until sometime in 2001 when the retool for model changes. 2001 Model Year was the first year the Santa Fe was introduced, and it began being MANUFACTURED in 2000. There is a lot more to the explanation but I tried to keep it easier to understand. The brake pads for the front on your Santa Fe for a 2001 will fit all model years from 2001 until 2006.
