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


Purchased new in Sept. of '01 and overall have been very satisfied. We purchased the extended warranty for a very affordable price and has paid off for us. The 2.7 V6 has plenty of power for a vehicle as heavy as it is and fuel mileage is reasonable at 20 mpg. avg. We have had a few mechanical issues covered mostly under warranty. Both front axles cracked and were replaced, a strange squealing noise from the rear that the dealership fixed but seems to reappear from time to time, the rear hatch door handle release latch sticks in and the door will not latch shut if you don't pull it out by hand. Radio goes on and off itself. This SUV is GREAT in snow with full time 4wd. We're keeping it

Best Features

Smooth running V6 with Good power, full time 4wd with traction control, terrific in snow, good interior comfort for every day commute or long trips with plenty of space for luggage. As usual you have to battle tooth and nail for the dealership to do anything after the sale. Going nowhere soon.

Worst Features

Better quality sound system and it is not covered under warranty after 1 yr.
