2012 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

Purchased this car new & do not like it. Seems to hesitate while accellerating. At a stop light,stop sign, or going slow when you press the accelerater the car hesitates and takes a second to finally go. Cannot make any fast decisions. Tried to go into traffice from a stop sign quickly,car hesitated & I almost go into a accident. Makes you drive completely different from the way you normally drive. Does not happen every time,but 2-3 times a day. Took car back to the dealer,they test drove,pulled the computer results,said all looks fine. Was told the computer controls the accelerator & it takes a while for the accelerator to go to the computer then back to the accelerator.Trying to unload it


Favorite Features

Nice and roomy inside.


Suggested Improvements

Fix accelerator.

Review

2012 sante fe GLS AWD V6. the vehicle is just average on everything. it does nothing really "great." hyundai needs to try a little harder on build quality, exterior and interior design. doors and suspension feel tinny. engine is just ok. its not fun to drive BUT, for the money it is a decent small suv.


Favorite Features

interior seat comfort with GLS. acceptably strong engine. suspension is decent.


Suggested Improvements

build quality, exterior styling, interior styling, stronger engine.

Review

I have had this car for three months. So far, it has been great. Fun to drive, easy to handle. I have the V6, felt the 4 was short on power during the test drive. Avg 22mpg in the city, around 30 on the hwy. One of the features of this car which they don't push is its short turn radius. I can whip it around like a compact and have gotten some parking places that amaze my riders.


Favorite Features

Dual zone a/c. Sound system. Leather (black) is nice. Looks. Hidden storage. Power


Suggested Improvements

Could feel more substantial. Feels "lite".
