2005 Hyundai Santa Fe LX AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
The dealer never informed me of the outrageous and extremely costly maintenance schedule. Didn't know I was buying a Jaguar!! Better think twice about buying!! Timing belt must be replaced at 60,000 at a cost of at least $600. If you don't replace, and something goes, you buy a new engine. If Hyundai is so confident of powertrain warranty. They should step up to plate and warranty timing belt to 100,000. Gas mileage a joke!
Extend warranty on timing belt to 100,000. Less scheduled maintenance. Extremely costly to own.
