2013 4dr SUV 290-horsepower 3.3L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
This vehicle is another example of how and why Hyundai is progressively grabbing more of the market share of vehicles out there. If I had enough room in my driveway I would have purchases this vehicle; even though I'm not a fan of CUV's or SUV's; I was really that impressed with it...and of course, with the mile I had, as well as others put on it, they would have to sell it USED!!! see full Hyundai Santa Fe review
2012 4dr SUV turbocharged 194hp 2.2L I4 Diesel
6-speed manual AWD
I don't give a damn how it looks so long as it goes, and it goes reasonably quietly, The audio is 'quite good'- I've been told by a friend - shame really as I've probably used it a dozen or so times. The cruise control is superb for the hundreds of miles of UK 50 mph motorway limits. see full Hyundai Santa Fe review

I previously owned a Hyundai. I donated it to our chuch after driving it for 114,000 miles. It got some very minor repairs and ran for another 50,000 that I know of. It may still be on the road. see full Hyundai Santa Fe review

6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
There is nothing I DON'T like about this vehicle. What I least like is how people still have a stigma about the Hyundai brand when they've never taken the time to test drive one. Hyundai's have the best customer satisfaction as well as repeat customer "index" of all the brands out there and for good reason. see full Hyundai Santa Fe review
2010 4dr SUV 175-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
DON'T BELIEVE they are different - a STARTER failing at 62000 miles - a JOKE. The PRICE for a Starter at the Hyundai dealer - a JOKE. see full Hyundai Santa Fe review

Quick depreciation; still known as a "Korean" company that is behind Japan, Europe and USA in quality though reputation and word of mouth improving in past few years and part of the reasons why I purchased the Santa Fe see full Hyundai Santa Fe review
