Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Handling, ride, seat comfort both front and back, noise block out.
Cons: tint on the front passenger windows is a little dark at night.
The Bottom Line: I would recommend this vehicle for good purchase price, waranty, wonderful ride, ample space.

Unexpected purchase but not dissatisfied in the end. Recently my son had an accident which was the demise of his vehicle. We passed our old car on to him and made the leap into an SUV. We purchased a two year old Santa Fe (early return from a lease) for ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Ride quality, power, warranty, interior noise level, fit and finish, reclining rear seats, traction control
Cons: folding rear seat, sound quality from radio, driver leg room, no vanity/window/door lock lighting
The Bottom Line: Very much recommended for budget minded buyers

The 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe is a very worthy competitor to the much more expensive CRV and Rav-4. This vehicle drives like a much smaller sedan, not an SUV. The suspension is great. Firm, but not overly as you don't get jarred with every bump in the road. ... read more

Last February I went to Florida with my mother and of course we had a rental car. We are from Massachusetts so we aren't used to bigger cars since they use up alot of gas. We got to the rental car station and we had gotten a free upgrade because they ran ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Great car. Dependable, comfortable, inexpensive, handy.
Cons: My one criticism is that the back seat does not fold flat.
The Bottom Line: If you need a dependable, inexpensive, comfortable ride, you couldn't do much better than buying one of these used.

I traded my Chev Suburban on a new 2006 Santa Fe (2-wheel drive, 2.7 L V6 engine) in June, 2006, and (except for the one time I wanted to haul 4x8 sheets of plywood) I've not been sorry. I'm don't put a lot of commute miles on a car, and in the 15 ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: These vehicles come absolutely loaded with very few extra "options" available.
Cons: My wife wanted tan interior but they only had charcoal. No other cons.
The Bottom Line: This is a great vehicle. For the money none can compare.

We are a proud owner of a 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS AWD 2.7L. This is our second Santa Fe. The rest of the story: We had a 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS AWD 2.7L that was totaled in a wreck in May 2006. A driver in an '06 Sebring ran a red light (way ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 10 Recommended: No 

Pros: engine power, stereo
Cons: looks, poor build, small, poor headlights/fog lamps
The Bottom Line: Stay away from this cheap tin can!

I was given this vehicle as a rental because my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee is in the body shop. I see quite a difference between it and this Hyundai. I definitely would not consider buying this sport utility vehicle for many reasons. First, the looks of ... read more

Pros: Can't really think of any.
Cons: If lean against a Hyundai you will make a dent in the side panel.
Hyundai's latest commercial compares their awful Hyundai Santa Fe to a Range Rover. Are the marketers on drugs over there in Korea ? They are in loo loo land if they think the Hyundai Santa Fe is anything close to a Range Rover. That's like comparing a ... read more

2004 Hyundai Santa Fe w/24,000 miles. Lost all my loan interest, down payment, and rebate. How you ask? Very easy. I took excellent care of my vehicle. Manufacturer deficit led to total loss of vehicle. My pregnant wife was in this vehicle when it ... read more
