2001 Hyundai Santa Fe GL 2WD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


No Sante Fe owner can tell me he/she hasnt seen this light WAY too often. Overall not a terrible car, but the interior has cheap flimsy equipment (the steering wheel literally started to come apart in my hands). I am rid of this car now and couldnt be happier about that. Maybe the later models were better, but way too many "out of warranty" repairs were needed on this vehicle. The stated MPG is an outright lie and I was lucky to get 16 MPG most of the time. I can honestly say that of the 6 cars I have bought new, this was without a doubt the absolutely worst one (1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse a very close second).

Best Features

It was quite roomy inside.

Worst Features

Engine overall. Battery just outright needs to be made something standard that lasts more than a year.
