I have had a 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe SE for about six months.
So far, I am very pleased with it.
It is comfotable and fun to drive. It has the 3.5L 6 cylinder engine and it runs good. It is swift.
It has lots of pep and that is important to me.
On the one short road trip it has been on, it got about 24 mpg.
In town it gets between 18 and 20 mpg. It is a very nice vehicle. I would recommend the Santa Fe it to anyone, but I would want the 3.5L engine.
I like the way it looks. It is a very nice looking SUV.
I like the 276 hp engine.
The seats are comfortable and pretty roomy. The transmission shifts smoothly.
It seems to be a well bult vehicle.
The only downside I see is I have somewhat of a difficult time seeing out the rear window. The window is small and the seat head rests obscure my view a ;ittle.
