Time to move on, with no problems
By Matt on


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


I bought this vehicle with 17k mi on it. It now has 137k mi. I have only had one major issue. The throttle position sensor went out. After I found a mechanic who could identify the problem, it only too an hour to fix and the cost was minimal. The factory tires lasted 100k mi. Another problem that was really a non issue, is that when I let the gas get too low the check engine light lit up after i filled it up and stayed on till i used half that tank of gas. I averaged about 20 mpg on all highway miles. It still runs great, just time to move on.

Best Features

Size, handling through bad weather (never felt scary in some hard winters), reliability.

Worst Features

Speed limit is 70 here in Iowa and at 75 the engine is spinning at about 3k rpm, maybe revisit the gearing. Better hardware on the back seat pull handles, mine kept coming un done when trying to fold seats. More of an inconvenience than anything.
