2005 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS Fwd 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)
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.
Smooth ride on long interstate stretches. Well-placed instruments and gauges.
Seats are a bit hard and need more range of adjustment.
