2005 Hyundai Santa Fe LX AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
My Santa Fe is a pleasure to drive. The comfort equals the luxury of a touring sedan. Handling is quick and very responsive with little leaning movement. Both normal and evasive braking w/ABS, even on wet roads, is excellent. Interior standard equipment, optional on most other SUV's, is far superior. The sterio system is both powerful and pleasurable. The radio tuning in system is incredible bringing in FM stations more than 60 miles away. The five year bumper to bumper warrantee is the best of all not to leave out the ten year 100,000 miles power train warrentee which dwarfs the other top named car companies. Tires for life is another standard feature which makes your choice even easier.
The sound system is excellent. The seats are contoured so that even with my back problems long trips are extremely comfortable.
My only suggestion for improvement would be to increase the horsepower to a minimum of 210 and a maximum of 230.
