2005 Hyundai Santa Fe LX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I loved the body styling compared to the box like appearance of other SUVs in its class. The interior is pretty comfy. The leather seats are not very soft but the give good support. I am disappointed that the passenger seat does not heat up as represented. The driver seat nicely heats and warms your lower back. Steering is tight. The gas pedal is too touchy. Barely pressing the pedal and it jumps into action full speed ahead! It is difficult to get used to and a bit annoying. Today I loaded a tall size hot water tank into it. Dropped the back seat and pushed the front seat forward and in it went with room to spare. Smiles all around! My friends find the back seat very comfortable.
Body styling is smooth. Good pickup on the road! Nice interior features. Confidence with the 10 yr warranty that I hope means that they believe their machine will not need the warranty protection.
Make the gas pedal less touchy and not so overly responsive. Make the front passenger seat so it folds flat.
