2005 Hyundai Santa FeAnn Smith - Buford, GA10/07/2016
I bought my Santa Fe brand new in 2005. I bought it because I do a lot of expressway driving and needed to sit high enough to see traffic issues. This car has so much get up and go. It is the 3.5L, 6 cylinder model. It has so much power. I just love it if i need to take off quickly or get around in traffic Handles well, has short wheel base for easy U-turns....just a great car!
Hyundai = Fun Day!

This REALLY is a great vehicle! Just keep in mind that when you are buying a 'previously owned vehicle' that no matter how many 'checks' the club put the vehicle through before selling it to you -- it's still a used car. Mine's former life was that of a rental, so it was in better condition than a typical used car -- I highly recommend going this route if buying used. The comfort of the Santa Fe is what really astounds me - it's phenomenal! You've really scored the comfort of a 'car' in a 'suv.' I drive a significant distance in heavy traffic (and summer heat) to/from work daily and the Santa Fe handles it all well - the stop and go...the quick stops...turning on a dime.... The A/C is substantial. No manual key lock on the trunk, no 'auto up' on the driver window, the horn is a bit 'puny', too many options on window wipers, but that's all nitpicking. You'll love your Santa Fe just like I do!
Still happy with my choice
2011 Hyundai Santa FeChris C - Raleigh, NC06/22/2015
Drives well, good price point, reasonable MPG.
My previous three cars were Honda Accord (11 years), Mercedes 190e (1 year), and Lexus RX 300 (10 years).
We purchased a Sonata in 2014 and that great experience led us to the Santa Fe.
We have owned the 2011 Santa Fe for 5 months so far and still love it.
