2005 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS AWD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


I got my Santa Fe in January 06, and have been driving it since then. It is free of maintenance and very comfortable SUV. I got aaround 19-20 MPG in city driving. It is probably the best SUV you can get wity your money. It has 4 disc ABS, 6 airbags, tiptronic transmission as standard options. I got mine for 21k $ and also included 6 disc CD changer. It is a very comfortable SUV and handles much better than most of the SUVs (wider). The back is very roomy as well compae to Jeep Liberty and any ofthe SUVS at its class. If you are looking for a non-expensive 4WD, Santa Fe is definitely the best you can buy.

Best Features

Tiptronic, 4 disc ABS, 4WD with differential lock.

Worst Features

2.7 L Engine does not come with optional 2WD to 4WD driver control system. It would be nice to have that option at GLS models.
