I purchased my 03 Santa Fe on July 31, 2008 after seeing it on the website. Before i even drove it I had pretty much decided to buy it. After seeing what excellent condition it was inside and out made the decision even more sure. I had always had sporty sedan cars. This is my first SUV and I don't see going back. Driving it is so fun and knowing the safety features like front and side air bags makes me feel so secure for me and my daughter. And for an '03 being bought in '08 with only 31K miles, it was an incredible deal. It has so many features including my favorites - a sunroof and heated seats. So far no problems except the check engine light comes on if you don't tighten the gas cap correctly. I would totaly recommend any year of the model.
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.
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!!
