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

Review

I have had this car for 18 months, having bought it used with 20,500 miles on it.It now has 49,000 miles and I just picked it up from the dealership from having the transmission replaced. The check engine light, is always on, and it didn't fail me today, 8 miles from the dealership (where they also fixed a vacuum problem to correct the CEL), it was on again. I had high hopes for this car, but after being in the dealership at least 8 times in 18 months (CEL and tranny issues), I no longer have any hopes for it. Although I love the style and size, it gets fairly decent gas mileage and it rides nice, those things just do not make up for the mechanical problems and being w/o my car.

Favorite Features

Fun to drive. Feel safe in winter. Lots of cargo room. Heated leather seats, power heated mirrors.

Suggested Improvements

Better mechanical quality. Reduce road noise - have to have radio loud to drown it out. Rear seats should lie flat when folded down.
