Highlights and lowlights if my 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe.

I own a 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe, all wheel drive, 6 cylinder. Pretty nice ride but it is a little rough over bumps. The car is like a jack rabbit off the light, sometimes a little to fast off the mark if someone is sipping coffee. Very good front window view while driving. Extremely reliable! After seven years of ownership I never had one problem! However, I have noticed recently that the cruise control works intermittently but eventually turns on. I am not going to get it fixed. Overhead dome light is extremely dim and is in the rear. The map reading lights are also extremely dim. Steering wheel is hard to turn when car is not moving, for example; the process of backing into the garage. Towing package/hitch works really nice and I pull my two ton boat with trailer all over the place with no problems. I got the pearl white paint with the car. That Hyundai paint color unfortunately starts to pit after a couple of years. If you look closely at the paint you can see all these tiny rust colored dots underneath the paint, but you do not notice them if you more than 4-5 feet away. Headline lights work great at night, but I always turn the fog lights on too and I see everything. Stereo system is just mediocre. Every other car I get into always seems to have much better sounding speakers than my Hyundai. Not enough bass. All in all I am very happy with my Santa Fe and I am glad I bought it.

Perfect for families who need larger backseat but don't want a large vehicle.

The Santa Fe is a great vehicle for families that need a little bit larger of a backseat (think teenagers or multiple car seats) but don't want a huge SUV. I get decent gas mileage'about 20 on the highway and 15 in traffic or town'especially for the age of the vehicle. The body still looks good, even though I have to park outside in the weather. There are minimal rust issues. Also, the bumpers are strong and sturdy. I feel very safe driving this car, and feel comfortable letting my daughter, who is a newer driver, drive it. The turning radius is not very good, so sometimes having to get out of a narrow parallel parking spot or performing a u-turn can be a little challenging. The seats do adjust; however, sometimes it is difficult to find the exact perfect position for me, since I have shorter legs. And driving for any extended period of time can become uncomfortable, as there is not a great deal of lumbar support in the seats. Overall, this car does great, especially for shorter trips (to and from work and church, shorter travel'a few hours away max, around town to shop or run errands). If five people have to fit in it for a long time (driver, passenger, and three in backseat), it is not comfortable for very long, but does work for shorter trips.

Good car with a few issues every once in a while.

I love the size of the Santa Fe, it fits my family of 4 comfortably without making me feel like I am driving a school bus. I test drove other SUVs prior to making my purchase of the Santa Fe and I did not feel others offered a clear line of sight out the back/hatch window. This concerned me for safety reasons. I wish the layout of the hatch area were different as it does not always accommodate what I am hauling. I feel stylish and trendy while driving my Santa Fe and feel it is a good vehicle that will continue to work for our family. I have had issues with the battery, however, which is a little irritating. I have owned my Santa Fe for 6 years and have already replaced the battery twice. As far as other mechanical issues, I have had experienced trouble with the front headlights going out regularly. These are both issues I believe are important to note as they make the car a little less reliable. I continue to drive my Santa Fe and would definitely consider purchasing another in the future, with the hopes that some of these issues will be resolved. I would highly recommend the Santa Fe to my friends and family members.

Surprising room and comfort in the Hyundai Santa Fe 2012.

The Hyundai Santa Fe is a very comfortable vehicle. There is a lot of trunk space, which is surprising because from the outside it does not look very big. It runs quiet. The Bluetooth connection is an added bonus making hands free driving even easier. It has a duel center console which is great for storage. The back seats recline, which my daughter loves because she gets to "relax" when we are taking long car rides. From the outside the car looks like a smaller SUV, but makes up for that appearance on the inside. Night time driving is made easier by the illumination the car provides on the inside.

A comfortable kid and gas friendly vehicle

Upon purchase of my Hyundai Santa Fe, I was in the market for a mid size SUV with which I could haul kids items. I've got 2 children and they have lots of things. I was also in the market for a vehicle with a usable luggage rack, which came standard on the vehicle I purchased. This vehicle is fairly good via gas mileages and is comfortable on long road trips. Overall, this was a good purchase if you've got small children to haul around and just a few things to haul. I wish it had more storage space in the rear but for me to obtain the cargo space I want, I would have to upgrade to a large SUV.

2012 Hyundai Santa Fe mid-sized

With this version of the Hyundai SUV, the interior is now spacious enough to accommodate a third-row seat (although it's a bit cramped and difficult to access). Still, this development, along with excellent fit and finish, makes for a more refined and versatile package. For its class, the Santa Fe also has responsive handling, which is delivered along with a firm but comfortable ride. A 2010 redesign freshened things up a bit, but didn't really push the envelope. While this iteration of the Santa Fe remains quite well rounded and competent, we wouldn't call it a world-beater.

Great dependable SUV that is a great buy for the money.

We love our Hyundai Santa Fe. It is the second one that we have had. It is stylish, affordable and gets decent gas mileage for a SUV, about 24 miles to a gallon. It has plenty of room for 5 people and a dog. Usually it is just the 2 of us and 2 dogs. The warranty is outstanding and haven't had any issues other than routine maintenance such as brakes. We live in Maine where the winter is harsh and live on a private dirt road that is barely passable at times and the Santa Fe always gets us where we need to go. Would buy another when the time is right.

- Kathy P

Great SUV, variety, comfy, transport furniture. Easy access to get in and out.

I haven't had any problems with my car. I enjoy the SUV type, it helps me see better. I like being up instead of in a small car. The front has a nice console for cups. Between the two front seats has a couple different sizes of storage space. Including in the front plug in your accessories. I like that the seats fold down, for moving and transport large pieces of furniture. The rear seats will also do a split fold. Back seats are comfy and includes a middle console. Including a port in back to watch portable DVD player and or charge phone.

Santa Fe is the Best SUV Around

I love my SUV because of reliability. I have never had any major problems with this vehicle and I would purchase another in a second. The SUB rides just as smooth as the day I bought it. The Santa Fe is the best. I love the sound system, back up camera and the extra sale it offers . It's really easy to keep clean and it hasn't lost its trade in value. I am very selective about major purchases but I would highly recommend this SUV . It's also great on gas. When I fill up I can go an entire week without needing gas again

- Michelle W

The Hyundai Santa Fe has been a dependable car and good value purchase.

This vehicle has been very dependable, with the only problem a recall very early on in ownership. It was to replace a sensor on the a/c. It handles very well and has maximum space for this type of vehicle.The only negative, which is just a preference, is that the seats are not very comfortable on long drives and the headrests on the driver's seat is so high that it impedes vision when the car is in reverse. Other than that, it has been a very dependable and good value purchase. I would consider another.

- Lisa L

Outstanding warranty. The great warranty was why I purchased the santa fe!

The 2012 Hyundai santa fe I own has over 131,000 miles and I have had very few problems other than normal maintenance on the vehicle. The only major repair I had was to have an axle replaced due to hitting a pothole. The vehicle drives smoothly and gets 26 miles to the gallon. Comfortable seating and more than adequate space. The ac and heating system works very well as does the sound system. I would definitely recommend the santa fe and probably repurchase when the time comes.

- Kathryn B

Santa Fe the bronze color is very sporty and fun to drive.

We like the Santa Fe. The ride is smooth. It is a good size without being too big. Spacious on the inside with enough leg room in the front and back. Plenty of space in the back compartment for groceries and extra items. The car gets very good gas mileage. We have had no problems other than a tire sensor coming loose. We purchased the Santa Fe in October of 2018 and have been very pleased with the purchase. We would definitely consider another Santa Fe as a future purchase.

- Becky C

My Hyundai Santa Fe is the perfect multi-functional car.

My car performs very well and is quite dependable. The gas mileage is great. The suspension makes all car rides comfortable. The emergency parking brake is easily accessible. The only problem with my car is that the tire pressure light is broken and is permanently on, therefore I have to manually check all my tires every so often. There is so much storage space in the car that makes traveling efficient. The steering wheel is fluid. The ac is works wonderfully.

- First L

Faster and bigger than it is earlier years models.

The vehicle has a lot of power, far as it take off. The Bluetooth capabilities is really useful but the receiver does not pick up your voice very well unless you tilt your mouth toward the mic. Make sure to look at the different settings to the radio to get the best bass and sound from the stereo. I do not like the height of the vehicle it is not good for shorter legs. I would by another of the same year though very roomy with plenty of storage.

- Wayne S

I love it, extremely practical.

Only 2 problems. The backup cam, but its a used car s so I do not know if I can actually blame Hyundai for that and you have to purchase a cord specifically made by Hyundai to be able to charge your phone. Super wicked comfortable in the front and the back. Super spacious, I love how much room and storage I have. Superb radio and stereo. Really big sunroof. I like that the gas cover locks with a lever under the driver's seat.

- Stella M

Small car, perfect for errands.

It's quite small. It's perfect for an everyday car to run errands in. It only holds five people. If you have car seats in the back it gets even tighter. The trunk area is spacious though. It gets good gas mileage. I wouldn't recommend taking it long car rides. It takes awhile to get up those steep hills on road trips. Plus it's not very comfortable for long car rides. It drives like a regular car but one that sits higher.

- Christina R

The Bluetooth for the hands on.

It is small durable. Go's up my road real easy in 4 wheel drive or not. It is comfortable, gets very good gas mileage. I really like the color. I wish it had a back up camera. It has Sirius radio which I really like. I would have liked to have had a GPS in it also. I like the Bluetooth for hands on, so I can answer the phone without picking up the phone to talk. It has USB plug in's and power plugin's.

- Charlotte M

2012 Hyundai Santa Fe: it has plenty of space for my growing family.

The car is amazing. The performance and reliability is my main Focus of the car. The drive is smooth and t of has a lot space. I recently purchased the car and I have not had an have not had any problems with the car. The car is used the only feature that I do not like about the car is the radio that came with the car, but I can change that. This is a nice family car and has plenty of trunk space.

- Myrtle C

Great family car and very roomy.

My SUV has been really great I haven't had any problems but having to replace the alternator in the last 3 years I've had it. It's a great family car and very roomy. We all love it. I feel very safe in it as well so my kids are around they age to drive and I am so thankful we have this car so they can learn in because it's a really good car I would suggest it to anyone. Its long lasting as well.

- Stephanie W

Love our Santa Fe! Cool ride and drives great!

I really like the performance of our car. Loves how it drives! We had another santa fe the year before & were in a bad car accident. My husband was driving & not hurt at all. I had a dislocated/broken ankle. We both said the air bags did their job and that car kept us from getting injured more! We got another santa fe. Love how the back seat folds down and roomy enough for 5 people.

- Nancy Q

Great car for hauling lots of things and carpooling.

Had to replace the idler pulley other than that it works great! It's got plenty of room which is great for me. Comfortable in long road trips. I've had troubles with getting my phone to hook up with the radio by USB port or other cables but Bluetooth works. However you have to connect to Bluetooth every time you start the car and it takes a few minutes before it will connect.

- Jennifer N

It is a good car and I love the heated seats!

This is my second Hyundai Santa Fe and I love it. I am short and the seat is adjustable to where I am comfortable. Seats are heated for winter and is good because I do not like the cold. This one now has 144, 000 and has had only minor things do not to it. The biggest complaint I have is that in both of the Hyundai’s lights burn out like crazy. But the rest is awesome.

- Jeanne H

The gas mileage is great as is the storage space. I love the reliability of my vehicle.

I haven't had any problems with my vehicle that I don't consider to be the result of standard "wear and tear", and I will admit to being rather rough on my vehicles - I drive 25,000 miles _ each year with a combination of city and highway miles. I love the roominess of the vehicle, particularly the ability to lay down the bench seat to increase storage space.

- Cameo P

Great functioning, affordable car!

This is my second Hyundai. I think they are great, reliable cars. They are the perfect size for my family. Hyundai's are also very affordable cars, I do not care to be paying a ridiculous amount of money for a car and they are very reasonable and great cars. The features of the car depend on the style, whether it is the limited version, sport version etc.

- Katie G

Santa Fe Summary by Cindy

I like this car. There is room in the front seat as well as in the back. It has good headroom. The seats are more comfortable than many cars I have had. It sits high enough that I can see well when I drive. It has been a dependable car that we bought second hand. There is a large storage area in the back that will hold a great deal.

- Cindy F

Great family or single person car

Great on gas mileage. Only had one problem with it in the past 6 years and that was the gas cap, had to replaced with twice. Roomy with seats that fold down and give lots of storage room. Will probably upgrade to the same make and model when I go to buy a new one. They are made to last. Only at 84000 and it is holding up great.

- Kristen H

Nice interior for a 2012, and I feel safe in my vehicle.

I have only had my car for 13 months. It had an oil leak, which ruined my engine. I had to buy a new engine. Before that, I really did love my car. I like being high up. I miss my brand-new Kia Soul that I totaled. I am thankful for this car, and as long as I keep up with the maintenance, it should last me a few more years.

- Maggie L

Great vehicle. Would highly recommend and will buy another.

Vehicle is very comfortable on long rides. Has been reliable since day 1 and have not had any major issues with it. Regular maintenance is all that has been needed. I do not need a lot of bells and whistles. This has the right amount for me. Wish it would have had GPS but that wasn't an option on this particular vehicle.

- Lori M

Santa Fe has wonderful features.

The Santa Fe is a great mid-size SUV. I currently have a 4 cylinder, but can make it up steep hills without a problem. Tee back seat has plenty of room for both of my boys. It is a comfortable ride with great gas mileage. We love taking our Santa Freon road trips. It gets to all the places we love in a comfort and style.

- Jourdan E

Great body, nice wheels, slender headlights, nice hunter green color.

No problems, drives real well, very comfortable, a lot of storage and room for passengers. Real good on gas mileage. Get real good service from this car on the roads. This is my first owning a SUV because I am very tall lady and I get a lot of room with this car. I am very happy with this car, I do not need another car.

- Linda C

The Santa Fe is just okay.

The 4 cylinder is not that great. The engine seems to hop a bit when going up and down hill. The lock on the passenger side broke as well. The heat takes a bit to heat up in the winter time. The brakes go very often too, but I guess that is because I do not commute a long way to work, just touch and go local driving.

- Donna L

Worry free automobile ownership

Very reliable trouble free one I or issue resolved under warranty by dealer the long warranty provides so much more protection than others don't know why other car companies don't do the same. It would add so much more value to their products, the Santa Fe is powerful with the v6 but still gives good mileage

- Tom V

The most important thing about the car is that the car is a five seater.

It has a good amount of seats for an averaged size family but one more seat would be better. The trunk compartment has enough space to fit groceries and bigger things by putting the seats down. The seats are comfortable and it has Bluetooth. The only big downside like most SUVs is the amount of gas it uses.

- Alberto R

Amazing vehicle, you need to buy one.

Works amazing in the winter. I have taken it places where people were putting on chains but with the 4WD on I had no problems. It fits me, all my camping stuff, my 2 dogs and all of there stuff. I would definitely recommend buying one. When I finally decide to get a new car I will look at a Santa Fe first.

- Amanda B

Hyundai Santa-fe not the best choice.

I feel like it is cheaply made. Things break that should not break. It is reliable to get you from point A to point B but has had some problems. It has had computer problems. The passenger side door handle broke off and the plastic piece on the gear shift. Paint on the back bumper is easily scratched off.

- Deborah D

Steering wheel is a real safety feature with quick access to calls and music.

It is great in performance and is a very comfortable ride. I like the fact it is high off the ground to see better and feel more safe in those rain puddles. The dashboard is easy to read and lights up well at night. I really like the layout of the console and access. Gas mileage is fair for the 6 I drive.

- Theresa S

2012 Hyundai Santa Fe owner review.

Comfortable seating & space for driver & passengers. Easy maintenance schedule, and finding service for vehicle. Exterior design enhances ability to achieve good gas mileage. This model does not come equipped with GPS or back-up camera, though there are aftermarket products that can be installed.

- Char F

Hyundai Santa Fe SE 2012 CANDY RED

It's very reliable I love the gas mileage and it's great for trips. It's also a wonderful everyday car for getting back and forth to work or wherever you need to go every day. There's plenty of room and you can fold down the seats to fit a washer and dryer if you wanted to. Just a great car all around.

- Seth R

Great performance, good for road trips

Overall, this is a great vehicle. It runs smoothly when properly taken care of and has good gas mileage. Unfortunately, the placement of the side airbags causes a significant blind spot for the driver. Make sure to replace the air filters often (especially in the spring/summer) to avoid a smelly car.

- Helen M

It is very dependable and efficient. Gas mileage is good for an SUV.

I like it because it is comfortable. I have a knee problem and the counsel doesn't interfere with my ability to drive. The car has been problem free for the most part. It is also easy to drive and has a small turning radius. It takes up less space in the garage. I live the small SUV aspect.

- Deb S

Honest, the car seat 5 comfortably get good mileage and is a 6 cylinder.

I love my car, I get good mileage. It has power seat for the driver and you control lumber witch I like cause I have back pain. Wish the wiper fluids would squirt higher up on the windshield. I haven't had any problems with the car. I wish there was a button to open the hatch inside the car.

- Barbie M

Vehicle Hyundai�s Santa Fe Feature Review

It gets good gas mileage and drives smoothly. We haven't had any major problems with it aside from the AC needing to be replaced after 8 years. I do wish the trunk space was bigger. I mostly drive around the city so I like that it has an eco mode which uses less gas when not on the freeway.

- Lauren B

Great vehicle. Properly taken care of.

Headlights keep going out. Replace almost every two months. Other than that it a good vehicle. No other problems. This is an older vehicle, but taken care of properly its great. Have 145, 000 miles will go at least 300, 000 more. Don't know about new vehicles. Should be the same or better.

- David E

The gas mileage does very well for an SUV though, that is a quality I do like.

Reliability, price, and parts. I feel like what I have paid for the reliability does not match the price. The parts are very cheaply made and it seems like something is always breaking down on it. I have had so many issues with reliability with this car and it has been a major headache.

- Taylor C

Great SUV! Gas mileage, features you need for your everyday life.

None so far great vehicle, has high mileage. And good gas mileage. Keep the oil changed. Keeps on going.. Doesn't have Siri eyes like my Nissan, but does have cruise, great drive and ride. Has a lot of room for small SUV. Great for a small family, the newer line up is much improved.

- Darrell W

The down hill button that controls speed.

For a SUV very good gas mileage. There are plenty of room for everyone. Feels nice to drive very smooth. Not to big or small. With the back seats able to pull down great for hauling items. Love all the new features and Bluetooth. I will buy another Hyundai when it comes time to buy.

- Teresa M

Most comfortable, safe and reliable mid-size SUV.

The Santa Fe gets good gas mileage. I have had few mechanical issues with the vehicle. The backseat is roomy enough for my teenage son to sit comfortably. I love the cargo space in the back. I feel comfortable knowing the vehicle is one of the top safety rated vehicle on the road.

- Jourdan L

This car is really good for adventurous couples.

It is a very smooth ride, but the look is outdated. I wish that my model had 4-wheel drive but it does not. There is a lot of cargo space and a spacious back seat. They fold down to create even more cargo space. I really like the hands free calling buttons on the steering wheel.

- Vic L

Hyundai Santa Fe limited.

Very reliable. I feel very safe. The look and feel of the limited edition is very luxury. The ride is very quiet, a lot of road noise is blocked out. The seats recline all the way down so that you can say down in the back making it perfect for outdoor adventures and car camping.

- Ann N

You may or may not have occasional acceleration issues

Love heated leather seats and sunroof. Fairly good on gas and has a stylish body style. I do not like that it intermittently has acceleration issues - after sitting at stop sign or traffic light push on gas to hovind nothing happens. Only intermittent not a continual problem

- Kathy S

The Santa Fe is in excellent condition for being 6 years old.

The brakes are terrible. The lights are really dimmed. Gas goes down fairly quickly. The performance is over all good. Vehicle is really comfortable. Bluetooth for the phone is a must. You can change colors of the screen which is nice. Air conditioning works really well.

- Michelle S

I like that if my tire is low on pressure it lights up which side.

So far I enjoy it! Rides smooth its perfect size for me having 3 kids! It notifies me with what's wrong with it so clearly and so far I haven't had any issues with it! I love the storage and the mileage is ok!! I feel safe driving my car and honestly can not complain about it!!

- Jessica G

Storage and hands free is great

I enjoy driving my Hyundai Santa Fe. The extra hidden storage is great for drinks, sports equipment and many other items. Bluetooth option is great while driving, I love that it also has the USB option for music in your memory stick or any other USB items you may want to use.

- Miguel J

The storage space is this car is incredible.

I love this car nice and roomy. Does great on gas. Has tons of different compartments to store things. Soon as you get in the car and turn the car on it automatically connects to Bluetooth. Trunk is very spacious, lots of room and has a compartment where you can store things.

- Tela B

Great car, great mileage, great features.

Car gets great mileage and rides great. It has great electronics and safety features. I have never had any major mechanical problems. Just had to replace the battery two times. The car handles very well on the open highway. It has XM radio and touch screen navigation system.

- Tom J

We use it to travel everywhere. It feels comfortable.

Having issues with wheels, wheelbarrow and axle. Had issues with the heat and air. The air smells like vinegar. I like the way it seats. Not too little inside. I like how it is a compact SUV. I will never drive a car again. After having an SUV. Gas is okay. Could be better.

- Lisa H

Reliable and dependable..

Main problem is tail light replaced as moisture gets in twice and just had a transmission sensor replaced which was around $1,000. There are no other problems that I have encountered. Wish it was at least a six cylinder for more power the four cylinder is tough with an SUV

- Kim D

It is a great car to be able to commute in

I love how compact my vehicle is so I'm able to park it anywhere I need to. I do wish that my car had a turbo engine because it's sometimes difficult to merge onto the highway because I can't gain speed fast enough. Overall, I love the size and what I'm able to fit in it.

- Bryna S

Has the perks of an SUV and it is not too big that I feel uncomfortable driving.

It is a great car! Very comfortable to drive/switching gears is no issue, comfortable to be in and very cute! Gas mileage is not the best, could be a little bit better on gas but I have never felt more safe in a car before.. Will be driving cars like this from now on.

- Lauren S

Underneath storage is nice.

The vehicle has good storage. I love the underneath storage compartment. I have had it in the auto shop three times for engine issues. I do like the Bluetooth feature. The seats are not comfortable and it has a rough ride. The CD player is nice and the cup holders.

- Lori G

The scrapping hauling machine.

It handles very well and we also haul a scrap metal in it. Gets very good gas mileage. We can have like 6 people riding comfortable in it. Also it will do very well on road trips. The police do not give me to much trouble like they did in my previous vehicle.

- Ronald L L

My review of my Santa-fe of six years.

Now that is its older it jerks while shifting gears. Some of the doors are sticky. The radio does not turn on sometimes. The seats are easy to clean there is a lot of storage under the front seats and in the back. Sits 3 people comfortably in the back seat.

- Emily O

My car Santa Fe, the white one

It's been a great car no problems reported but tires, it's good on gas, it's a very smooth ride, it's the best car I have owned so far, the only thing I would change is the total payments every month, they are outrageous, the car isn't worth 17,000 dollars

- James K

Amazing family Car but great for Date Night

Just bought 2 weeks ago and I absolutely love it. It's a Very comfortable car and spacious. Drives smooth and I love all the features especially my BT and sunroof. Amazing look inside and out. Back seats are reclinable and the space in the truck is wide

- Aurora C

The pleasure of owning, driving and looking at.

Enjoy the look, design. Ease of driving to the mountains and the desert. Just plain enjoyable. To drive and operate. Looks great in our driveway. We take it to the beach and on household chores, just a real pleasure to look at, drive and take care of.

- Patrick B

It's pure comfort, I love this car. if i ever buy another vehicle i will want the same one.

I love everything about my car, It's big enough for my family and i can haul plenty of stuff in the back. it drives good and is easy to handle. i like it more than any other vehicle i have ever owned. I would happily recommend this car to anyone

- Linda D

Very dependable, Hyundai cars have the best warranties.

I like that my back seats fold down to have room to carry stuff like a truck. I've had it for 6yrs and it's very dependable. The only thing I don't like about it was the color,next time we will wait until they have the color we like in stock.

- Lisa T

Since it is an "off" brand, people tend to think it is a cheap, junk car, but it has been reliable for my so far. It is a good riding vehicle, better than the old buick car I had before this.

I recently bought it. I wanted a SUV to haul my grandkids. This is the best I could afford. I like it because it's exactly what I was looking for and in my price range. I dislike that it is older, but its all I could afford.


It's a good car but repairs are expensive.

It is a great car. Good gas mileage and a/c. I did have to replace the alternator at 55,000 miles which I wasn't happy about and it cost a $1000! But overall it's a good car. It has more buttons than I know what to do with.

- judy h

The backup camera allows you to back into tight spots without any worries.

My car is very easy to maneuver. The seats are cushiony and can even heat up for the winter time. It's perfect for the summer as well with a moon roof that adjusts to allowing light in and being almost like a convertible.

- Jane D

I trust my child's safety in my vehicle 100% when we are traveling.

I like that I can hook up to Bluetooth for phone calls, music or google maps. I like being able to hook up to satellite radio if need be. I dislike how my seats in the back seat fold down. They do not go down flat.

- Jess R

If you choose V6 and forget about 3rd row, it will be best choice.

Without engine issue & missing 3rd row, it's good SUV. A little weak engine (2.4 option). This one has many issue with Sonata but not so severe with SantaFe, but you are unlucky enough, you may have lemon engine.

- Woo K

Hyundai Santa Fe: Limited Edition

My vehicle is a Hyundai Santa Fe Limited Edition. I have not had any problems with this vehicle to date. It has leather heated seats, sunroof, V6 engine, 5 disc CD changer, and it syncs with android or iPhone.

- Rebecca W

It is very reliable and spacious.

I like the gas mileage my vehicle gets. I like the storage my vehicle has and the space it has for passengers. I also like how open the windshield area is. It makes it easy to see from all sides when driving.

- Will B

Love the Hyundai Santa Fe!

It's a good size for me and it runs pretty well! We have about 200k miles on it and it's still in good shape. There were some problems with the transmission at one point but we got it fixed really quickly.

- Jo T

Great value for the money. Will buy another one when it is time to replace it.

It has been a very reliable, dependable vehicle. It has had no significant flaws, it has required nothing beyond routine maintenance the entire time I have owned it. I would buy another without hesitation.

- Bruce P

I love that my Santa Fe is very reliable after 6 yrs of owning this vehicle.

Since having my Santa Fe for 6 yrs, it's never really giving me a problem. The only thing I can think of is the gas tank cap, if it's not screw on properly it can show as a check engine on your dashboard.

- Anna H

You'll have to add Bluetooth.

It is been a really great car. It had plenty of room in the back seat for adults to ride in. There's plenty of space in there back for moving and also the seats lay down to. The step is also really good.

- Kara F

I think my vehicle was just a lemon. Other people love their Hyundai Santa fe. There is a decent amount of space in the rear "trunk" area. Wouldn't recommend for large families

I didn't have much choice when purchasing. It has been difficult to maintain and very costly. I don't care for the way it handles in the snow. I have had a lot of major problems which have been costly.

- Janell J

If you want SantaFe, please avoid 2.4 engine option. V6 sacrifices MPG but 2.4 may have engine issue & too weak......

In general, very useful car & cool design. It has been very reliable but one bad issue (Engine failure, fortunately, under warranty) Engine is bit small considering overall size. I miss third row!

- Woo s

It is an suv so it is too heavy and you have to take turns slower than a car.

My Santa Fe is comfortable, easy to drive and fits 5 passengers. The driver seat is power adjustable, Bluetooth radio, cruise control, power windows and side view mirrors, heated leather seats.

- Stacy D

It has been low maintenance so far, but I think it is too expensive for what you get.

Mostly it's a great car. This is my second one. The only problems I've had with both of them are with the fan switch (electrical) messing up and the dashboard light sensors going out.

- Joyce P

It is not a 4 wheel drive and it has no GPS system in this model year Sante Fe 2012.

It is economical on gas. It is comfortable. We call load purchases in it with room available. I don't particularly like that it has no GPS system. Other than that no complaints so far.

- Silvana s

Incredible car and worth the money

Performance is incredible. Speakers are amazing and never bust, and I listen to music loud. The window motors seem quite efficient seeing as I smoke and haven't had to replace any yet.

- Selena B

It has been a great beginning family car

I like that it has plenty of room in the back. I do wish it had a little more room or 3rd row seats. It does drive a lot like a car which I love. It also gets really good gas mileage.

- katrina n

I drives like a new car; very smooth.

I have over 115, 000 miles on this vehicle. The engine recently seized. I was delighted to learn the Hyundai is replacing these engines at no cost to me. They stand by their product.

- Fred S

Reliable - That is what you are getting with the Santa Fe!

There really isn't anything I don't like about it, I just wish I would have bought a different model like the sport. I wish I had gotten the Santa Fe with the sunroof and leather.

- Adam G

I love my car and I take care of it. I spent so much time commuting, it is my second home!

It is comfortable, reliable and elegant. I never had any serious problem with my car, with only basic maintenance. I did a lot of long road trip and the car behave as a charm.

- Judy F

Very powerful, safe and has a good mileage.

Santa Fe 4WD is very comfortable and very powerful vehicle. You feel secure inside. Santa Fe has a very spacious luggage area. I would say it is a very dependable vehicle.

- Valentina A

It gets pretty decent gas mileage.

What I do not like is no back up camera and that I have to control the Bluetooth from my phone instead of the car. What I do like is how sturdy it is and the gas mileage.

- Renee K

Maintenance is minimal. Occasional oil changes and new tires.

Height of the car is perfect! In the 30 years of owning various Hyundais, I've had basically no engine issues at all! They have all ended up with around 200,000 miles.

- Julie m

It is dependable and gets great gas mileage. I like this SUV and Hyundai has always been a reliable car manufacturer.

This is a very reliable vehicle that I haven't had any problems with in the past 6 years. I would definitely purchase the same one the next time I need a new car.,

- Eva P

This is a very good vehicle for everyday driving and for camping.

I love the backup camera,seat comfort and features. I love the moon/sun roof, roof racks and handling. Storage compartments in the trunk area are very convenient.

- Suzanne M

It's a good deal for a small SUV and with a great warranty.

I like the size of the SUV it's not too big or cumbersome. I don't like the gas mileage on the car though. I also like the 100,000 warranty we got on the car.

- Becca C

It is simple but reliable!

I like the size and the way it drives. I slightly dislike the body style and color. I like more boxy body styles and prefer neutral colors inside and outside.

- Kristin E

Feedback on My 2012 Santa Fe

My car is a good size. It runs a bit rough. I wish it had an updated suspension. It's not something I would purchase again even though it has been reliable.

- Chris S

It is the perfect size! Not too small and not too large.

I love my car. I wish the driver's seat would fit my boyfriend comfortably, as the seat does not push back far enough. Otherwise I love everything about it.

It drives well in most terrain, even snow. And it is very comfortable.

I love that it has plenty of room for a family of 4, plus groceries and much more. I don't like that it is an older vehicle, wish I had a newer model.

I bought my Santa Fe new in 2012. It has been very reliable. It handles great, is very fuel efficient on the highway, and is very easy to maintain.

- Anna K

Fun to drive and gets and room for seven seating if needed.

Like that it has all wheel drive which is great in the winter with snow. Lots of storage room in back. Only ?complaint would be better gas mileage.

- Elaine P

The 4 cylinder transmissions slip.

I like that it is a 4 cylinder, I love the color and I like the amount of space it has in the interior. I hate that the transmission is slipping.

- Donna M

It's the perfect car for a small family with children because there's room to grow.

Super comfortable, easy ride, decent on gas, plenty of trunk space and leg room in the back seat, love the heated leather seats, safe and secure,

All around air bags, and it is AWD.

I like that it is what I haven't driven it in the snow yet though. Decent on gas also it eco fuel also. I dislike that it is not 3rd row seating.

- Lisa L

The eco setting cannot be turned off. It is more of an indicator.

I love that it is not a giant SUV but it has enough room for me. I really wish I had a sunroof and the in navigation system with backup cameras.

- Melanie H

Comfort for problem backs.

Uses a lot of gas. Is probably too big for 4 cylinder, very good in winter/snow. Luv automatic starter. Very comfortable seats for my bad back,

We love our car. We do have to work on the maintenance but our SUV has been great to us. It is very comfortable and drives great in the snow.

This car can almost drive itself. she accelerates and brakes very smoothly. the engines eco feature makes it great on gas too.

It's my second Santa Fe and I got 200,000 miles on my first one!!!

It's the best SUV in the snow. I love the interior, navigation system, and satellite system. The sunroof is an added touch!

That the passenger seat is not good for long trip it is a killer on your lower back

We have had no problems really running wise but it has no pick and go and it is a gas hog for being only a 4 cylinder engine

It is well made but has some weaknesses in the electrical system. Also they really aren't worth the MSRP

000 miles with no main issues. My only repair needed was back brakes which is usual for the mileage. I will buy another Santa-fe in my future. Enjoy the car very much.
