Excellent suv

Vehicle: 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe LX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

I've owned three Santa Fe's... 01, 03, and 04. This is by far the best and most fun to drive. I just passed 31k miles and have had zero problems.




Aas good as japanese cars

Vehicle: 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe LX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Been driving excellent Japanese cars for 30 years. My SantaFe is as good as any I've ever had. Tows my 3000 lbs boat better than Toyata or Isuzu. Great features & no problems at 20K miles. Very solid vehicle and fun to drive. Would like to have a real manual shift, but beats a straight automatic. I have front wheel drive so I get about 23 MPG with the 3.5 liter with loads of power. Love it...




Great car

Great Car! I don't usually like SUV's I'm more of a car person but I took this Santa Fe out for a test drive and it was great!! Very smooth. I have a family of 5, 3 boys (13,12,8) and they all fit no problem. Overall great car. Go with the heated seats their the best!




Santa fe more than okay

Vehicle: 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe LX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Excellent value for the money. Fun to drive, has excellent "eye appeal" and a fantastic warranty. The LX package with the 3.5L is worth the extra money.

I have had my new Santa Fe for about a month now. I had driven one several years back, I bought it for the warrenty and gas mileage. I had a Tahoe and that didn't cut it. I LOVE IT! Its fun, zippy, and you can't beat heated seats and a sunroof, 10 year 100K bumper to bumper all for $22K !!! I have had no problems.
