When I first sat in this car, I knew it was mine. I loved the way it felt sitting in the driver's seat. The steering wheel, the proximity to the dash board, the seat itself, was perfect for me. I've always had GM products, so this was quiet the change. I'll grant the Hyundai isn't as "solid" as my Yukon, but it's solid enough that I feel completely safe. And it's not "tinny" like some of the Japanese models I've taken on a test drive. Up front, there's enough leg room for my husband (6'5") (I drive due to his disability), and I've had 3 grandkids in the back seat (ages 4, 5 & 9) with no complaints. The engine runs smooth, average gas mileage is 22 in around town, and I am very happy with this car!!
During my driving life I've owned Mercedes, Volvo, Cadillac, Jeep, Ford, Mercury, Pontiac, Chevy, and VW. When my Jeep was knocked out from under me I was unexpectedly in the market to replace it. Having dealt with Carmax before and been very pleased I naturally turned to them. I was in the market for a Jeep to replace mine. We found an acceptable car bu before buying it I reviewed my choice and realized my biggest problem with my Jeep was the gas mileage. I mentioned that to my sales person and he suggested Hyundai. I have put 4000 miles on my Santa Fe now and I'm thrilled with the choice. Not only does it have even mpre bells and whistles than my Jeep (I'm a gadget guy) but it's more comfortable to drive and has more interior room. It's a good looking car too. BIG thing....almost TWICE the gas mileage! Thank You CARMAX!!
I just bought the new Hyundai Santa Fe and I LOVE IT!! There is a nice new body style for 2007. I think it looks alot like a Lexus RX or an Acura RDX. The limited version has very nice leather seats and a sunroof. It has great pickup and rides very smoothly. The back seat has lots of leg room. The cargo area is a bit less roomy than other standard sized SUVs, but it has a really neat compartment where you can store alot of things "beneath the surface" of the trunk. So, that increases the space without bulking up the SUV. I highly recommend the 2007 Santa Fe to anyone who is looking to get a great value!
