Hyundai Santa Fe: The Long Lasting, Safety Vehicle.
2007 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS
I've had my Santa Fe for 12 years. Over the course of the time I had with the vehicle, overall, it's a very reliable car. I drive between two states for my job, so it's been great with gas mileage and wear and tear. However, some downfalls that I ran into were the tires. I guess working in the city, the tires could not withstand the awful driving conditions. I went through 6 tires in one year because I kept running over nails and metal pieces in the city streets. There were also a lot of potholes. I also have gone through 3-4 batteries over the 12 years I've had the car. Besides that, it's a very comfortable car and fits other passengers comfortably. I feel very safe in the car as I've been in a few minor accidents and walked away from them with minor/no injuries. The fact that this car lasted me 12 years makes it extremely valuable to me!
