2005 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS Fwd 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have enjoyed driving the Santa Fe for nearly a year. I have taken it on trips and drive in heavy traffic. I holds up well and comfortable to ride in. It has separate cup holders so it is easy to reach your drink not the passangers. The down side so far is the back seats when folding them down you have to take off the head rest and the seats still don't lay down flat.


Best Features

Drivers seat. Short people can see better and get that up high feeling without needing a step ladder to get in.


Worst Features

Back seats that fold completly down and the back door to open sideways as well as up.

2005 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS Fwd 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Just finished a 1000 mile vacation trip to northern New Mexico. The 2005 Santa Fe 2.7 GLS FWD was outstanding on the interstate as well as the twisting mountain highways near Santa Fe and Taos. Smooth ride, plenty of room for four adults and luggage, and adequate power from the 2.7 for steep grades indicates that Hyundai has a well- thought-out platform for years to come. The Santa Fe is a solid perfomer and a great value--thousands less than competitors.


Best Features

Smooth ride on long interstate stretches. Well-placed instruments and gauges.


Worst Features

Seats are a bit hard and need more range of adjustment.

2005 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS Fwd 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I love thge warranty but after the purchase I don't have to think about it because everything works great. This vehicle is very fun to drive and has alot of get up and go with the 3.5 v6.The heated seats are a plus in the cold weather months and the leather cleans up easy when my kids make a mess. The only down side is not having power seats. That one option would make my Sante Fe perfect.


Best Features

3.5 engine. Has great pick up. Very fun to drive


Worst Features

power seats is the only thing I would change.
