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.
Air bags all around are standard. Dual climate control standard on Limited. Pearl White paint. Also, many more features and an extremely affordable pric, not to mention a fancastic warranty.
For a small SUV, this vehicle is very sleek looking without being too garish or ostentatious.
From past experience with the Hyundai products, I felt that if this vehicle came close to the previous one, I would be very happy. All professional auto critics praise the Santa Fe.
Relatively stingy on gas and yet has plenty of power to avoid emergency situations such as passing another vehicle or entering the freeway at speed. The shiftable 5 speed transmission is fun to drive and gives the ability to start in 2nd gear in needed
