2005 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS AWD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)
I bought the 2005 Santa Fe used just a week ago. The gas mileage is a bit lower than what I expected for a small V6. The 2.7 is just a little bit underpowered for a vehicle of this size. It is very comfortable for an SUV and handles very well. A solid vehicle with a lot of nice standard features. Roomy interior and sporty design. Controls easily reached and easy access getting in and out of the vehicle. Roomy cargo space.
Heated and power mirrors. Sporty design. Comfortable and quiet ride.
A bit more power from the smaller V6 or make the 3.5 standard in the Santa Fe. Maybe offer a 4.0 to 4.5 liter engine option. Better gas mileage.
