2005 Hyundai Santa Fe

- Good gas mileage, comfortable
- Transmission had to be replaced after 30K miles of normal use. A/C has failed 4 separate times
Although comfortable, I've had to bring it in to get the A/C fixed 4 times. Also, the transmission had to be replaced, which took 6 weeks. Would not buy another Hyundai.

- Good overall quality, reliability. good room and hauling space.
- lackluster engine(2.7L V6) rough idle in winter time.
Have owned this 2002 Sante Fe for 2 1/2 years and it has 55,000 miles on it now. It has been every bit as reliable as the Toyotas and Hondas I've had in the past. The gas mileage is good, usually in the upper teens for city and have gotten close to 30mpg. on the highway. Have a small problem now with the radio cutting in and out for some reason. The only major knock I have with this SUV is the engine/powertrain. It is very lackluster. I believe the horsepower is 170 and the transmission needs more boost. It doesn't like to climb hills or even small grades. When the time comes for me to buy another vehicle will checkout the larger V6 3.5L to see if any improvement....read morehide
