2013 Hyundai Santa Fe: Feels Tight and Rattle Free After 12 Months

June 27, 2014

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe

After more than 22,000 miles, our 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe still feels solid. A year-old car should feel tight, but usually by this time most vehicles start to develop small rattles and a general looseness to their suspensions.

After various errands around town over a weekend, I didn't notice much of either. The interior still looks and feels well screwed together. The panel gaps are straight and there are no rattles over bumps.

I'm actually more impressed by the fact that the suspension is still tight. It's not as obvious because the Santa Fe is naturally tuned on the soft side, but it's still precise in the way it soaks up potholes and dampens road ruts. If this was my own vehicle I would feel pretty good about the way it has held up.
