A great, practical car-perfect for Minnesota winters and long commutes.

2015 Hyundai Santa Fe

I love my Hyundai Santa Fe! I like the space that it provides the driver and passengers. I can easily access every area of the vehicle from multiple places (like the front, back, and trunk). The Bluetooth feature is my favorite and works flawlessly. I have not had any issues mechanically and every tune-up (like oil changes) have gone well. Local maintenance shops have the materials and supplies that are required. I do not know the specific gas mileage, however I feel satisfied with how often I need to fill up. I drove 120 miles a day for the first year for work. I never had any problems with the vehicle, it was super comfortable to ride for that long in, and it helped with winter driving. The AWD feature is one of the main things that attracted me to this specific car. Driving on the country roads in the middle of snowy winter can be dangerous and causes me significant anxiety. My car performed better on ice and snow than my friends who also drove that far daily. In fact, many days we carpooled because of the great winter driving my car does! It definitely made us feel safer. Also, whatever material is on the seats has saved my life. I am a chronic coffee spiller and you cannot even tell on my grey fabric seats. They are easy to clean and appear very stain-proof.

Spacious, well built vehicle that drives smoothly and feels safe.

2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Base Sport

I have owned this car for 3 years and mostly enjoy driving it. I have the base model which did not have the backup camera or heated seats which I miss having. It is a very roomy vehicle that drives comfortably. I really enjoy that the back seats fold down & it has very spacious room for bulky purchases that will not fit in a regular car. The heat & a/c have vents front & back & work well. My one complaint is the 'recall' they just performed a few months ago, when driving around 40-45 mph the car goes flat & you really have to step on the gas to get speed back up. I have also test driven the 2018 model which has a beefier engine & more power. Overall it is a well built vehicle that I feel safe driving. Hyundai does need to address the recall/class action on the engine and step up for their customers. This is for fourth Hyundai I have owned.
