2013 Hyundai Santa Fe: Riding With Lawyers

May 29, 2014

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe

After 11 months and 21,000 miles I'm still enamored with our long-term 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe. Although there is one thing about this six-passenger crossover that drives me bananas.

Every time you start the Santa Fe's engine you get this disclaimer screen. Every time. And to move along with your day you have to press "Agree." Every time.

Damn lawyers. Every time.

  • The lawyers may be the enabler but it is really the people that refuse to take personal responsibility for their mess-ups that cause this. Without the attitude that 'I should always be reimbursed for anything and everything that ever happens to me regardless of fault or intent' is what feeds the attorneys that then leads to warnings like this; or even worse systems that don't work when you the vehicle is moving. ---- It is also the juries that look at it and go 'that poor person suffered so much and Hyundai has so much money; they should really help that person out'.

    If you bought this car without knowing about this flaw then it is your fault for not checking this during the test drive. Personally, I consider this a fatal flaw and will refuse this car and will look for a model without this feature. It would be nice if someone at Edmunds compiles a checklist of potential annoyances that shoppers should look for during a test drive. Nonfunctional GPS is one such annoyance.
