2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Where to begin? This SUV has been nothing but trouble since rolling it off the lot. I've been in for warranty work 3 times in two months, with more scheduled next week. In fact, I've driven more rentals and courtesy cars since owning this than the car itself. Issues I encountered: rear heater only blows cold air, the back window simply
shattered had to have replaced (no lie), lumbar button mounted improperly, and only went one way, dash display intermittently cuts in and out, the bluetooth quality is atrocious, the trim paint in the interior will chip off if even breathed on too hard, It wouldn't even turn over twice, still more to list! Beware of this ride. It's riddled with defects

Best Features

I like the interior design, and the features such as variable steering modes, I like the design. It's definitely comfortable.

Worst Features

This vehicle clearly wasn't inspected very well at a manufacturer level. This is unacceptable. Check out some other SUV's before this one. I don't know a ton about Hyundai as a company, but this is some super shoddy work. It's a ruddy mess in a pretty dress.
