Had this been a brand new vehicle, it would have received 4, possibly 5-stars: it has (almost) every amenity I want - the engine is considerably smaller (2.7l 6-cyl) than what I am accustomed to which DOES NOT equate to better fuel consumption. I mainly do highway/freeway driving, and to get the speed up to a matching level of on-going traffic does require some foot pressure on the accelerator or perform manual shifting (To add illustration to this, imagine going from a 3.6l 6-speed Sorento to a 2.7l 4-speed Santa Fe).
Now, had I not experienced the Sorento PRIOR to this Santa Fe, I would be close to "hog heaven": sunroof, locking gas door, BLUE INTERIOR PANEL & CONTROL LIGHTS, XM radio with controls ON THE STEERING WHEEL, dual-tuned exhaust...yes, had I purchased this in '07 instead of the Sorento, I believe I would still be in a state of emotional recovery had it been totaled as was the case with my Sorento...despite the negatives, it is a nice vehicle.

This a great car. I routinely drive from Kansas to Florida and this is a super comfortable car with plenty of room for three teenage boys. The car does well on gas considering the size of the vehicle.
