Love it for the most part
By suvlover21 on


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


I love the car for the most part, I go commute to and from school as well as work and outings with family and friends. In mixed driving the computer shows an average ranging from 24.5 to 27.0 MPG with the AWD turbo. Not sure how accurate that is given what the dealer said it should be getting HWY, plus the car always states about 330 miles until empty with a full tank. Took a 300 mile trip and only used half a tank, not complaining though. Only issue is servicing the vehicle, Hyundai service always has something else to blame. I installed HIDs and a SUB 3 months ago, 2 days ago an Engine Control System warning comes on, Hyundai blames the after market parts, says its an electrical spike.

Best Features

Rear Back up cam, Bluetooth, Projection Headlights and LED accents, Comfortable leather seats and rear heated seats, BlueLink Remote start and other BlueLink remote features.

Worst Features

Outward visibility, front passenger seats can make it impossible to even check the enormous blind spot on the passenger side of the vehicle. Rear high mount stop light glares off the rear glass at night making it impossible to see out the rear window. Higher quality sound system in more basic system, basic radio offers absolutely no bass, major disappointment coming from a Veracruz that had the Infinity system with a SUB. Better turbo with less turbo lag, hit the gas and you can tell its a turbo waiting to catch up before it puts you back in the seat.
