2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Long-Term Road Test


2013 Hyundai Santa Fe: Onboard Computer

October 25, 2013

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe

I've had our 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe in my possession for approximately 48 hours, which means a couple of round trips to the office, and a few other minor errands. The onboard computer was cleared when I took the Santa Fe, so the current calculations are all mine.

So far I've driven nearly 150 miles over six hours with an average speed of only 25 mph.

Sometimes, you just don't want to know.

    "So far I've driven nearly 150 miles over six hours with an average speed of only 25 mph." I typically fill up my 2011 Sonata every 400 miles and reset the readings, and the average speed indicated on the computer is consistently 29mph. It is kind of depressing, but seems to be the norm these days. I live in the 'burbs, and the speed limit in my township was recently lowered from 45mph to 35mph on the main road, and from 35mph to 30mph on the feeder road out to the main road. Every morning I travel a highway with a 55mph limit, but traffic volume keeps us down to 45-50mph. It can sometimes take me 70 minutes to travel 28 miles to work...this is all in the 'burbs.

    This is why I make it a point to commute to work at 4 or 5 in the morning and stay until 8 or 9 at night if I can help it just avoid traffic.

    16 hours of work just to avoid traffic? I guarantee I'd not make the same decision.
