2011 Hyundai Santa Fe

Trim: 2.4 AWD

Hyundai Santa fe 2011 2.4AWD
This car is just amazing, we researched a lot before buying it, either to go with Rav 4? or Nissan Murrano? Kia Sorrento? we saw that the Rav 4 is small but has the same engine, Murrano has the same comfort but a 3.5L engine, Sorrento has the same engine, but the quality is bad, so we decided to go with this. Amazing Gas Mileage, Comfortable, Built Quality is amazing, AWD is really good, we are never scared to drive it in the snow, it gives me better mileage then my Nissan sentra which has a 1.8L engine, we are really happy with this purchase, Hyundai has changed a lot, we were always a fan Toyota or Nissan, but now we would always go with Hyundai

2012 Hyundai Santa Fe

Surprise, surprise
What can I say. I had to rent one in Vegas for a week and was very pleasantly surprised. Nice to drive. Comfortable. I still couldn't quite get over the notion of owning a Hyundai, but it has nothing to do with the actual performance or value. Maybe one day I will buy one vs. just renting but it's clear a good commonsense choice for anyone looking for value vs. "brand".

2010 Hyundai Santa Fe

by Cindy566 on 10-12-2012
Not too big and not too small, it's JUST RIGHT. And no Bears!
We had an old station wagon and needed a new vehicle with the same amount of room. After looking at the Ford Explorer (too big, like school bus big) and the Subaru Outback (a bit too small) we decided that the Santa Fe was JUST RIGHT. The rear seats fold down creating tons of space making it easy to haul everything from furniture to groceries inside. If you've ever gone to a cottage for 2 weeks, you know the amount of stuff that you NEED to take with you. Food? Bah, we'll get that later. Gotta make room for luggage, books, art supplies, power tools and gardening tools, clothes for all kinds of weather and don't forget the booze. With all that, the Santa Fe still has room for a dog, a cat and a parakeet! Luckily everyone gets along great. Slap on a bike rack with 2 road bikes and you're all set to go! Like Goldilocks, we find the Santa Fe to be JUST RIGHT and best of all...no bears! : )
