2005 Hyundai Santa Fe LX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


The carbuying press always bashes Hyundai's but we have had our 2003 now for almost 3 years. It has only had one problem at 43,000 miles the oil pump pressure releif valve froze. It was replaced at no cost under the best warranty in the industry while we were given a loaner car. The V-6 has more than adequate power for it's class and delivers great gas mileage for it's size. we average 24mpg in town and 29- 31 on the highway with the standard automatic transmission. The Quality has been so good in fact that I used Hyundai's $2000 owner loyalty rebate towards the purchase of my Elantra. The Santa fe has all of the features that would cost you 4-6 thousand more dollars on a RAV-4 or CRV

Best Features

I love the style of the Vehicle which is often mistaken for the Lexus RS 300 which is twice the money

Worst Features

A manual transmission should be available for better mileage
