4th Hyundai for the family, My wifes father has a 04, Loved his so we bought one for ourselves. 2.7L V6 pulls well for small pop-up campers and small trailers. Great power. And has the best fuel millege for its size and class.... Highly reccommended!
Packaged well. Had Sunroof/Compass and Tow Package already from the factory. The GLS in 2006 came with everything std, Major Plus there
Hyundai needs to take away the Highway/Light Truck tires and put a more aggressive tire on the vehicle. Duller HT tires are horrible in anything other then dry weather. Maybe some ATX/ATP or light All Terrain Tires. Car also could use a slight 1/2" - 1" ride height raise.
2006 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
This is my 2nd Hyundai. Traded up from an Elantra, which I loved, so when I needed a larger vehicle, the Santa Fe was my first choice. For a mid-size SUV, the price is low, the fuel economy is decent, and the warranty and overall quality are outstanding. I find the best fuel economy is about 65-70mph, keeping the RPM's below 3000. Recently moved from FL to CA with my family, 2 pets, and a trunk full of clothes & supplies, with no problems at all. Handled pretty good when I hit the remnants of a blizzard in the midwest. Acceleration is a little slow, but once it gets going, it runs real smooth. Seeing so many other Santa Fe's on the road makes me feel good about the choice I made
Lots of space, comes standard with many great features (CD/tape deck combo w/ decent sound system, fog lights, cargo rack, TONS of airbags, cruise control, Shiftronic transmission, power everything). Easy and fun to drive. Well-built, low price
Could use better acceleration and still needs improvement in fuel economy given the rediculous price of gas.
2006 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
This is by far the best vehicle we have ever purchased in inital quality and manufacture support. It is our first Hyundai and I have to say they really have it together with their dealers. Their collborative efforts resulted in the best buying experience we have had in over 20 years of automotive purchases.
2006 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS 4dr SUV AWD (2.7L 6cyl 4A)
I picked up my Santa Fe in August 2006. My hubby & I have a house in PA. We travel out there on weekends and Holidays. I noticed the caravan of Santa Fe's on the highways. We look @ each other with wow I made a great choice on this SUV. Sometimes my husband and I start to count on a given trip we counted for about one mile there were at least ten on the same highway. Four were the same color as mine. I love my truck, and just like my American express I never leave home without it. Great SUV, great price for it and relly a reliable. Liz from Queens NY
The exterior colors and sytle. My music system and the back storage. Also the led space it's comfortable to sit in the back seat, also to nap. LOL
