Saved My Life
By megiejay1684 on


2001 Hyundai Santa Fe GL 4WD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Although I cannot attest to the logevity of this vehicle (as I only had it for about 6 months) I can definetly say that it is extremely safe.
I was in a head on collision on my way to work one morning, hit by a lifted '90-something Ford F-250 going about 60+ miles/hr.
This Santa Fe did exactly what it was designed to do by crumpling the engine area, and other than the fact that the front end of the vehicle was smashed like an accordian, the rest of cabin area and the car was completely fine.
I only walked away with a small break in my ankle, which was from me bracing myself as I tried to brake.
I, as well as the paramedics on site, believe whole-heartedly that this vehicle saved my life.

Best Features

Very Safe! The ride was smooth, and comfortable...The sound system was great...and it got decent gas mileage.

Worst Features

Make the body style better...I think we can all admit that it's a little odd looking.
