What can I say, 75000 miles in three years, one set of tyres and passed MOT with flying colours. Only issue was a failed clutch master cylinder at 60000 miles which was replaced no quibble (full clutch as well) FOC by dealers. MPG avaerage 35/36 but then I am quite heavy footed as the car with this power available is a pleasure to drive. This is my second Santa Fe and fourth Hyundai (2 x Terracans previously), so sad to be trading it in next week for a new car )-: But guess what, its for another Santa Fe and its not the new model! Not sure on the new looks despite what Hyundia's marketing gurus think, I still like the old shape. So dealer has done me a cracking deal on a pre registered old style model (still has more gizzmos than my old one) and i'm lookinh forward to 2/3 years more happy motoring. Hopefully the new model will have grown on me by then and the deals on offer will be a little more sensible.
This is my second Santa Fe having been lucky enough to trade in a 56 plated model for the latest 2012 one complete with Bluetooth. I was impressed by the old car but this one is leaps and bounds better; the new engine is more powerful and flexible, the 6th gear makes it smoother, quieter and more economic and the whole package has gone up market. The RDS radio (at last!) works well with the Bluetooth but I do miss the CD changer, I am however getting used to using my ipod instead.
The car takes me shooting across some pretty rough country and my dogs have plenty of room in the rear (I like the new dog guard too)sadly as the Met Office got it wrong as usual I haven't been able to compare its abilities on snow yet. After two months I'm a very happy customer and this is the first time I have ever not changed models when I bought a new car!
This is my 4th Hyundai, second Santa Fe. Purchased January 2010 and know with 45000 on the clock. Car is well put together, reliable, no faults to date,very economical for a big car and huge inside. Handling is good, road and wind noise good. The 5 yer warranty gives peace of mind and the 20000 service period is good on the pocket. Servicing cost lower than any other large 4x4 I have driven in past (3 x Series2 Discoveries). Hard pushed to find a better car to replace it with next year!
I have had the Santa Fe Premium since September 2010. I still do not have a cruise control system that works even sometimes. My local garage have been absolutely no use in getting a resolution or ecalation of the problem with Hyundai. In going to Hyundai direct, an area manager came and drove my car, has experienced the problem and still I wait for resolution. My next step will be legal ones!!
Perhaps the 5 year warranty is because it takes 5 years to fix problems.
It is a shame because the car has plenty of space and power.. NEVER AGAIN A HYUNDAI for me.
