I love my 2006 Santa Fe limited addition. it is super comfortable, spacious, and fun to drive! I especially love the heated leather seats! !
I was searching for a vehicle and a man I work with had a Hyundai Santa Fe and he let me sit in it and I knew right then that I had to get one just like it. It sits up high which I like, and it is soooo roomy! So my best bud recommended the Santa Fe to me and I wouldn't change a thing!
I owned an 02 Hyundai Elantra 4dr, hatchback and absolutly adored that car, however, was in an accident and it was totalled. I decided to upgrade to an SUV and was able to find this vehicle. Overall, I like the vehicle, but miss some of the 'extras' from the Elantra. Driver seating - has less knee room and doesn't go back as far as in the Elantra. Overhead lighting - the overhead light when you open the car door is placed over the rear seat area and the map lighting in the front is very weak, you have to hold what you are looking at right up to the light. Trip readers - in the Elantra you have single trip and mpg. The Sante Fe does not calculate your mpg at all, has 2 trip readers Dashboard symbol placement - awkward Auto door lock - Does not lock all doors when car is placed in drive, and when you use the door lock button, you have to remember to unlock it if you wish to open any other door from the exterior Suspension - is great - very very smooth ride, not a lot of bouncing Rear seating - love that the seats have the ability to slightly recline for my rear passengers Cup Holders - my passengers like the rear cup holders, both in the console and the pull-down arm rest Tinted windows - took me a little while to get used to it but it is nice when riding in the daylight hours and really reduces the headlight glare at night Engine - good acceleration/deceleration, no bucking in low Exterior - like the black grillwork, it beefs up the front nicely and I personally like the shaping So, like I stated earlier, overall, I like my new (to me) Sante Fe
