2005 Hyundai Santa Fe LX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Originally test drove a Sonata, loved it and my wife saw the Santa Fe. Test drove it and liked everything about it. We just got rid of a 1996 astro van and wanted mor of an automobile ride. fantastic stereo-plenty loud and excellent quality.
Nice acceleration for a small 6. Attractive interior and easy to use controls. Some things I dont like to pay extra for and most of the basic controls suite me fine. The reclining back split seats give the riders extra comfort. I also like the two tone exterior color(black and gray). WARRANTY!!!
Find a way to get better gas mileage from this V6. Eliminate the small annoying noise/click at 10mph right under the gas pedal.(Was informed that it is a test when you first start forward after turning off engine. Only does it once.
