Love the car - but now it's a beater...
By leftoverchef on
2004 Hyundai Santa Fe Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Well, I've had the car since brand new and have loved it. I haven't been too punctual with the routine maintenance (oil changes, etc.) and the car still has performed well (until recently, but more on that later).
I made it to 100k miles on the original clutch - which is a record for me.
I didn't even replace the timing belt until 110k miles!
The only problem I really have had with it has been a faulty clutch pedal sensor when we bought it - and a crank-shaft position sensor that died just before i replaced the timing belt.
That said - recently the Catalytic converter broke and the Exhaust manifold cracked - a $2600 repair - but my son will pay that to buy it from me instead!
