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.


Best Features

The day I get rid of it.


Worst Features

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.


Best 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.


Worst Features

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.


Best 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.


Worst Features

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.
