Owner of 2014 santa fe sport 2014 model

It has exceeded my exoectation with power and speed, im always late by nature so I push it and it loves the push snd speed...but the recalls are a pain. I have to take it in, have been recommended to keep out of the garage( (causing frequent washing etc) due to recalls. I want a palisade next. But plan on keeping my Santa fe forever, allowing my children to get the full. Use I did out of these well made vehicle s.

Not a happy Hyundai. Bought 2 used within a month.

I bought a 2014 & 2017 Santa Fes. Just informed by the dealer that the 2014 that I bought 3 weeks ago the engine may be seized up. My wife's 2017 no problems. I'm still under warranty on the 2014, but the 2018 is almost out.
