2001 Hyundai Santa Fe LX 2WD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I just found out that Hyundai's "best warranty in America" is bogus. They claim a faulty power window is an "adjustment item". The fact is it is not functional because of faulty design.


Favorite Features

The day I get rid of it.


Suggested Improvements

Honor the warranty.

Review

Love this truck! It is stylish, reliable and peppy. I have had no problems with it during the 1 1/2 years I've owned it. Some recalls on parts but the dealership called me to inform me and repaired the truck in hours. Had a fender bender and wasn't taken for a bunch of money to replace damaged parts.


Favorite Features

The body style is fun. The seats are comfy and enough cargo space for my daily job. For an SUV, no so bad on the gas mileage either.


Suggested Improvements

Only improvement would be to make slightly more leg room in the front and make the seats electric controlled.

Review

Bought the Santa Fe about 15 months ago for my wife. We considered just about everything including the Lexus RX300 and decided this was the best value. So far we haven't been disappointed. In 18,000 miles there has been only one mechanical failure and that was a crankshaft sensor. Two weeks later Hyundai issued a recall on crankshft sensors so it must be a common problem.


Favorite Features

Ride, fit & finish, my wife likes the styling. Quality seems good - nothing has fallen off or come loose and it still runs as good as it did when new.


Suggested Improvements

Better stereo and perhaps better mileage. Last highway trip was at 80 mph, loaded w/ a/c on and got about 22 mpg so it's not too bad.
