2003 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS AWD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Now this SUV is over 10 yrs old now, but I find it hard to believe even new, it ran with no problems. I should have listened to my insight, and ran! I've had to replace the serpentine belt once, and the pulleys twice, and it will still make noise. I've had to replace a front axle, and there's still a check engine and air bag light on that still needs to be addressed. Oh, and the clear coat suddenly started to come off on the pig rapidly after I bought it. I used to think foreign cars were better than american. This SUV has changed my mind! I don't want anything to do with Hyundai. If you are looking for a SUV try a Equinox, or Explorer lol.

Review

A great value for the price it's a great everyday commuter box nothing special but gets the job done, motor is solid, transmission is great, minor repair issues with aging, I.e ., power steering, rusted oil pan, alternator, but overall a great car, I use it everyday to commute to NYC and put 20,000 miles a year on it and it takes a beating ! I would get another one no problem, easy to park and very fuel efficient

Review

Keep your vehicle maintained. As others have stated, the paint is not the best. I have 280,000 miles on this vehicle which was a program vehicle and had
11,000 when I purchased it. I have spent about $ 3,000 on it during a period of 12 years (repairs)
