My veloster got great gas mileage and was very fun to drive. The leather sets are comfortable for a long drive with a great radio. Seats fold down easily for a lot of space for carrying stuff. It cannot fit a car seat easily and it's not a great car for infants. It also can be very loud driving and bumpy on the round.
Reliable but a little bumpy!
2009 Hyundai Santa FeJohn Robinson - Cincinnati, OH01/27/2017
Purchased new in 2009 and haven't had to put one penny into it besides normal maintenance expenses. I wish I would have opted for power seats though! Manual seats aren't real comfortable on long trips. Ride is pretty rough, unless it's on smooth highways. Pot holes and small bumps can definitely drain on you over time. We even have the best tires money can buy. Suspension could be much improved but it is an SUV, so I get it. I also wish I would have purchased 4WD. An SUV with 2WD is rather pointless. Not bad in snow but, it's not great. Road noise is more than I'd like but not horrible. Cabin space and back seat comfort is good. Always drips oil from drain plug. New washers never help. Expect constant black spots where you park.
Great styling and low cost of ownership for a very low price. It's no hot rod, but it definitely has the space I need without burning up gasoline. The hatchback has a ton of room: with the seats down I fit an entire rabbit hutch in the back of the car!
