Never Again Jeeps for me
By Rick on


2005 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Only half the vehicle a Grand Cherokee for 3/4 the price. Comes with lots of options but they don't preform very well. The 4wd drive dosen't work well if you spin your tires. It cuts in and out and at times the pauses leave you with no power going to any wheel. The interior is roomy but components are lacking in quality. The rear seat bottems are made entirely of foam (no frame) and don't lay flat when folded down. The floor carpet and mats are econo big time. The vehicle must draw it's outside air close to the road because the exhaust flumes from other cars get sucked inside big time. Lots of AC in the winter because of using the recirculating feature. The body and doors are quality.

Best Features

Body construction seems great. Sorry, everything else is run of the mill.

Worst Features

Air intake, interior quality, electronics, supension, driver side seat should adjust back more for taller people. Gas pedal feel and control for smoother exceleration.
