2005 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS AWD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)
This is my first SUV, every winter I wish I had a 4-wheel drive so I researched online and decided on the Santa Fe. Very glad I did, I love it! I've gotten a lot of compliments. I already owned an Elantra so I got the owner loyalty rebate along with the special incentive rebate that was going on at the time.
Drives like a car; remote keyless entry and alarm (always wanted that!); rear wiper/washer; leather steering wheel and gear shift; great stereo; better on gas mileage than I thought it would be.
I, like many others, don't like the chrome base around the gear shift. Also, I wish the rear seats went all the way down. The shiftable auto transmission and the cruise control should be optional, I'll never use either one.
