We have been an avid buyer of Hyundais and Kia, until this Veracruz. At first the car was tight and very sound car, after 60K miles of being well cared for the car rattles, wind noise and many electric problems, specfically the powerseat settings for driver, the steering wheel locks up and needs key to start (normal start is just having the key fob in the auto)
I have had this car in several times to repair and it gets repaired but returns back to problem after couple months of driving. Still a solid car, but these issues are just annoying considering I have had 2005 Kia Optima with 165K miles and no problems, not rattles. The 2006 Hyandai Sante Fe I owned before this car never had a problem nor never returned it to the shop even with 50K miles. Will probably buy the Sante Fe, not a Veracruz. FYI young mechanic at dealer told me these problems were common with this model

Great SUV for the price! Lots of cabin room and powerful engine.
Some of the best compact SUVs today are efficient, with good power and handy features like a turbocharged engine, all-wheel drive, and even third-row seats. Check out this top 10 list, based on CarMax sales data from January 1, 2017, through December 31, 2017.
