2005 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS Fwd 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)
I have an older Mercedes E320 which is awesome, and my quality benchmark. While no Benz, my Santa Fe is a nice, reliable, comfortable vehicle. I needed a grocery, Home Depot, chauffeur the relatives, transport the dogs vehicle. This fulfills it way past my expectations. The mileage could be better, but hey! it uses Regular! The suspension is a little mushy, but that's my only complaint. While not exactly launching off the line when the light turns green, the 2.7 is more than adequate for my needs.
The room! The stereo is okay on the radio, awesome with CD. Availability of extended warranty guarantees trust in the vehicle. I'll have several years of worry-free driving after it's paid for.
Better mileage (do I hear an echo here?!?). Power on all seats. Cruise controls should be illuminated or spotlighted.
