Good car but not a great one
By Luigi on


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


The interior comfort and the ride is very good for a low priced mid-size Crossover/SUV. Ample power. Good traction. Decent cargo space, although the rear seat fold-down configuration is burdensome compared to other makes. Reliability is fair. I had to replace parts on this car that I never had to replace on any of my Nissan vehicles (I've had 9 of them!). And my dealer's service is mediocre compared to Nissan. There really is a difference in quality, and I think Nissan is worth the extra money. Considering a Rogue, Murano, or Mazda CX7 when I replace this Santa Fe.

Best Features

Decent ride. Comfortable seats.

Worst Features

Better quality parts. Easier access to engine for repairs. Rear seat fold- down needs re-design.
