We took delivery of our new Santa Fe last week. After dropping off all of the paperwork a week before, we paid the deposit and were able to drive away within 20 minutes - excellent service.
We have only two minor issues - the coolant sensor wire was loose, resulting in the gauge not working - it took two minutes to fix. Also, there was no audio manual included with the car - again, it took two minutes to sort out.
We love the handling, and the car returns 36mpg overall whilst running in with the air-conditioning on (staggering!). We also like the turbocharged whoosh of power when you press the throttle, the superb manners on both the motorway and back country roads, and the fact that it costs £10,000 less than the competition (take that, Disco boy!).
We also love the head-turning looks, superb interior, HighMAT compatible CD player, and the two rear seats (our kids fight over them!).
There are some niggles (but all very minor) - the gap between second and third gear ratios (ours has a manual transmission), there's no RDS/TA on the stereo, and no sunroof option. It could also do with a six-speed box (3000rpm at 85mph in 5th gear).
Delighted with our purchase, cannot recommend this vehicle highly enough...
