Bought it with only 5000+ mileage in March of 2007 and now its 100000+ miles and it still runs great. No major problem with it. Average MPG is about 20mpg combined highway and city driving. On winter/hot summer maybe down to 18mpg with heater/AC in use while driving all the time. I have the FWD 2.7 V6 and it drives good in Michigan winter on up to 4 inches of virgin snow on the highway. I'm planning to keep it for maybe another 100000 more miles.

Fun to Drive

I've never owned a loaded V6 SUV before. This is a fun SUV to drive. The gas mileage is a bit daunting, as gas prices have shot up to $3.52 in Milwaukee. I average about 16 mpg, as I do a lot of city and highway driving. I feel very safe in this vehicle. I've only owned it a couple months since Nov. 2010. I really like the pickup the V6 gives it and the ride. I think I'd buy another. But I hope by then, they figure out something with the fuel economy.

Santa Fe 4wd

by from Minsk, Belarus on May 10, 2011

Santa Fe in version 4wd - best choise for winter time with snow and ice. If you have tire casing with rules tread - its very nice!

Best Car I've Ever Owned

This was my favorite car. In the eleven years I drove this car, I never once had a major issue. It was incredibly reliable. It got pretty good gas mileage, and it drove very well. It was comfortable, and provided enough space to accomplish any task. When people ask what my hypothetical "dream car" is, I always answer with the Santa Fe. It was the best car ever. I traded in for a minivan to have a little more space for my growing family, but if they had Santa Fes with a third row, you'd better believe I'd be purchasing that next. It was the perfect small SUV, and was a great car for many years.

I bought the Hyundai Santa Fe Limited Edition, 2006, one year used. For the money this is one of the best SUV's you can purchase. The AWD works great in the snow. I live in Colorado so having an SUV as essential. The leather interior is very easy to keep clean and the sunroof is awesome to have open in the summer time!
