2001 Hyundai Santa Fe GL 2WD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Look at this .. after 176,000km on the count. I decided to chage my tire for the first time! They are still good for one summer so I will keep them for next year. The best tire on this thing I never had. No problem at all with this SUV. Did change oil every 5000km, regular maintenance, the closer dealer in my area is about at 200km. Don't need them anyway .. haha The paint still great on it after these years. The one thing is the break that need to be change every 50000 at least. I paid this SUV after 3 years then it's money in the bank! I can't compaint at all ...!
The automatic going to manual shifting is a great tool for me in winter time in the North of Ontario Canada. I really give it to the Santa Fe in winter season .. believe me.
The breaks should be more resistant. The stering should have function to pull out. Allow more weight on the roof for transportation because 500 pounds is not that much compare with other SUV.
