Hyundai Santa fe has proven to be a dependable car
2005 Hyundai Santa Fe
I bought my car used and have had it over 3 years. I put on about 50,000 miles before I had to make any repairs. Nothing major has gone wrong it's been a very dependable car for my family. We drove it to move to Florida from RI 1,400 miles with no problems. I have moved large items with it like a couch and a treadmill. The back seats fold down to allow tons of room to fix things in which has come in handy many times. When it comes time for a newer car I'll be looking at another Hyundai since I've had good luck with this one. I was rear-ended in it and no one was seriously hurt and we got hit pretty hard the other car was half way under us. I keep up with the oil changes and tires and in the time I've had it I finally had to replace the battery and was shocked to find out it was the original factory batter from 2005 still there. The car seems to be made with quality parts as they have lasted and now as I'm making some replacements I'm finding out they are all original parts so this means that the car has run smooth without repairs since 2005 and now only due to its age is now starting to need some things fixed but I must say I have never been stranded the problems were always gradual and obvious but I was always able to still drive it until it got repaired.
