2016 Limited Ultimate Santa Fe

Agree with the other reviewers. Great car all around. Best bang for your buck. Until my wife's car I was not familiar with Hyundai. She has a 2015 sonata sport and it was so dependable and nicely equipped that I was sold on the brand when my wife's car hit 130k and she never did anything to it except brakes, new tires, and oil changes.. not to mention that one is still going strong today as well. So anyway... Bought the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe limited ultimate awd used a year ago with 50k miles on it for similar reasons others seem to have bought one. Dependability, comparable or better features than competitors in its class, not bad on gas mpg, tons of cargo space, great tow capacity, pano sunroof, heated and cooling seats, standard plug in trunk, second row captains seats that recline and move forward and back oh not to mention are heated, heated steering wheel, great v6 power house, privacy shades in second row, nice touch screen, awesome 10 speaker audio system with subwoofer, high intensity headlights, oh and a limited slip rear locking differential that is on vehicles like the new genesis suv or my ram 1500, both are around $50kish new with those options. The only thing I wish it had which my one year older 2015 ram 1500 Laramie longhorn has is front sensors for parking and led lit side door storage areas but that truck was $10-15k more brand new than the Santa Fe was new... So moral of the story, pretty impressive Hyundai.


Very reliable and easy to drive

Have had this Santa Fe ultra limited for 2 years it has all the options available in 2016. This SUV has been on several trips gas mileage is about what EPA quotes we love this rig


Handles fantastic.

It is a great vehicle. It’s spacious, comfortable and fun to drive. It is easy to park and has a great navigation system. I highly recommend it.


Sporty and fun to drive

It has all the bells and whistles we wanted and more! Its sporty and rides and handles great. The gas mileage is as advertised. We’re very pleased with it.



I own 2 Santa Fe sports both have Continental tires and they are the worst tire I have ever used. Other then that it's a great car.


Most reliable vehicle I’ve ever owned

I bought this vehicle, because I had rented one in Colorado, was going up the million dollar hwy towards Telluride when I had to pass an RV pulling a vehicle doing about 40. Floored the Sante Fe and had hit 85 when I finished passing. Altitude was approx 11000 ft on an uphill grade. Was impressive. I have had the vehicle for over 4 years, no mechanical or electronic problems. Very reliable.


Awesome value!!

Exactly what I was looking for in a used SUV. This is my third Hyundai and I’ve been happy with every purchase. Buy a Hyundai!!


Good Car for the Space.

We have 6 months with our White SantaFe, We travel like 90 miles daily, this 6-cyl. is a gas guzzler. Fill the tank every 2 days... we got now a Honda HRV to take the pressure out of the Hyundai...


I've owned Hyundai Santa Fe Highlander

The car was okay. The only problem it doesn't givin low oil warning signs at all. You Will end up buying new engine. Very shifty
