Handling issues with the Hyundai Santa Fe.

The main problem I have with my Santa Fe is the way it handles in the rain. I had a Santa Fe before this one that got totaled because I hydroplaned on a bridge in the rain, spun around and hit a retaining wall. We could not find the replacement Santa Fe in AWD so we trusted the dealership when they said they had improved that feature. Unfortunately the handling feels the same; you have to accelerate very gradually from a stop or else you will hear the tires peel out. The airflow in the backseat is also a huge complain for my kids in the summertime. It is always hot and they cannot get enough air.

- Alison M

Convenient features and comfort.

This vehicle rides very smooth and has significantly more power than the 2016 Santa Fe sport. The seats are very comfortable, but the heated seats do not get as warm as they should. The gas mileage is not all that good. Once in awhile I will get 30 to 35 miles per gallon, but not often. Highway miles are better, of course. So far this vehicle is very reliable. I would suggest that the compass be standard in every model. I like how easy it is to fold down the back seats to make more room. All in all it is a nice SUV to have if you do not need a full size SUV.

- Linda N

Great comfort and features!

I wish it had a little more power uphill. They improved the radio and screen options. The button start is very convenient as is the in vicinity lock system so you do not need to have your keys out all of the time. I wish the trunk came standard with the remote open. The seats are very comfortable and I love the adjustable headrest. The a/c works great and the heated seats are good. It comes with 3 years of bluelink! It is very convenient to start your car remotely so the a/c can be on before you get to the car.
