A $50K quality CUV for closer to 30K
By johnnywes on


2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.0T 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Bought a Juniper Green with Beige AWD 2.0T at the end of July. Loaded with everything, save for remote start. This CUV replaces my old 07 SF LTD. This new version is sportier, better looking, tighter, and a lot more fun to drive. The interior is great, so much more comfortable than my 07. Everything is within reach and very easy to use. The Nav/Radio/Back up camera is really nice. The 12 speaker surround sound is concert hall quality. The 2.0 Turbo is a stout little workhorse that has plenty of zip. there's nothing i don't like about my new Santa Fe.

Edit to add, 3 years later, still an amazing vehicle given the silly low price. Runs like a dream, very low upkeep cost, and has a lot of life left on it. Hyundia continues to crush their competition. I see more and more vehicles that seem to have outright copied the Hyundai design. Too bad they charge way more for their vehicle's than Hyundai does.
Edit to add: 3/12 years in, she still runs like a champ. Still riding on the OEM tires and nothing other than oil changes and standard maintenance stuff has been needed. We continue to love this car. The features, the ride, the power, and oh yeah, the stereo, all add up to make this a best buy on the market today IMO. We'll keep this for at least 2 more years, and maybe more. I'm waiting on the next generation to arrive. If I like it, I'm buying one. Hyundai fan for life. it is made in America, so there's that.
