2006 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


After 20K+ miles in 20 months, this '06 Santa Fe hasn't had any problems. Dealer recommended oil changes/service by the book. Dealer caught one minor problem at 6K miles & repaired it (no charge). Great in traffic with ample acceleration to move as needed. Good sound system. Would like better than 2 interior color choices (taupe and grey). Body paint still looks new. Braking is still great. Interior cab for driver feels cramped with seat pushed back to its stops; have to rest left foot on foot rest; still uncomfortable with long drives. V6 highway mileage could be better.

Best Features

Best standard features in the industry included. Had almost everything I desired but found optional in other vehicles at a great price. Dealership staff was knowledgeable & patient and not pushy to make a deal.

Worst Features

weak horn; get rid of the cassette player; need MP3 plug in. Nosing up from take-off is noticeable. Wind noise past outboard mirrors needs to be worked on. Better interior color choices/fabric. More seat positions for driver side seat. Would like to see a pickup truck in the future. improve MPG.
