Over the past couple of years I've noticed little chips in the paint on the hood. Originally thought they were from rocks, but today found a larger chip of paint missing from over the windshield. The car has been sitting in the driveway for 3 days and it wasn't missing last weekend when I washed the car. As coincidence would have it, I saw another Santa Fe the same color yesterday missing quite a lot of paint over the windshield. Obviously there is a paint problem with this color.
2010 Sante Fe GLS 2.4L Blue W/Tint Alloy Wheels -- Really enjoy this vehicle. Bought it 3 years ago, used with 36k and in great condition. It hasn't given me a single problem mechanically (I do regular maintenance to be proactive) and has started every single time during these past 3 years no matter the weather. I have recently moved to the country to our farm and it gets used more as a truck these days; pulling, hauling, and carrying two great danes around. It tows a 15ft trailer with 2 ATV's and does it with ease. I would recommend this SUV and the newer models to anyone looking for a "close to luxury on a budget" kind of SUV. If I really didn't need a REAL truck, I would most definitely buy another Santa Fe in the future. **my one complaint** to spite having premium audio, the bass is a little lacking. I like my butt to vibrate. (no pun intended)
