100,000 miles without a single problem
By fonixkween on


2002 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS 2WD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


I commute over a mountain and have had to successfully navigate through black ice, snow, steep terrain, suicidal deer, and drunken drivers. My Santa Fe just hit 100,000 miles and I have had ZERO problems. My factory tires lasted 60,000 miles (my friend who drives a European car over the same roads had to get new tires at 30,000 miles). My car has started, dependably, each and every time. It has the power to tackle steep roads (and with the Shiftronic Transmission) it is hell-a-fun to drive. I once raced another friend (who drove a Miata) over the mountain, and my Santa Fe handled the curves better than her little car. Great Car!!! Comfy cloth seats!! I'm so glad I own it.

Best Features

I love the Shiftronic -- makes it very fun to drive. My cloth seats are more comfortable than any leather seats I have ever sat on. And they are very durable -- after seven years of kids and dogs, they are immaculate.

Worst Features

Exterior is a bit funky. The newer models look much cleaner.
