The best feature on the vehicle is the rear camera.

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe

My vehicle is a pearl white which I absolutely love! The vehicle has 4 wheel drive which is amazing. It also has 3 drive modes. It has regular mode for everyday driving, then it has eco mode for long trips then it has my personal favorite it has sports mode it is for the interstate driving. It also features modes that can help with resistance from the motor from going up and down hill, it also has provides some help to avoid to hydroplaning. It has a front and rear wiper blade with is very convenient. My vehicle also features a rear camera which has amazingly clear imaging. The vehicle also has Bluetooth where I can give my car a command and it responds. The makers of Hyundai also have a blue link app that allows you to crank your car wirelessly. You can tell the app how long you want your engine to run, what degrees to place the air on it is amazing. The last feature that I want to talk about is the seat warmer. I love the seat warmers so much, they are very helpful on those cold mornings between the wireless start and the seat warmers you cannot go wrong with this vehicle!

Very Sharp, comfortable, reliable vehicle

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe 2.4L

Overall, I really like my Hyundai Santa Fe. It drives smooth. It's very comfortable to ride in. It gets good gas mileage. I love the way it looks. Very sharp looking especially from the front. A couple problems I have are that when pulling out of my gravel driveway, it doesn't seem to get good traction at first and so I can't accelerate quickly which I need to do as I live off a highway. It only takes a few seconds until I can accelerate so it isn't a huge issue. The other problem I had was that while on vacation, I was getting my grandsons stroller out of the back and laid my keys inside. I shut the back hatch and someone shut the door. My fob was inside the car and within 20 seconds the door had locked automatically and we were locked out. We had to call for a locksmith and were stranded for an hour. There is no way the car should lick with the fob inside of it. One more thing, I wish when you laid down the back seats, that it created a flat surface. There is a slight slant to the seat area. Overall. I love my vehicle.

"Hyundai makes good cars!!".

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe

This car is comfortable. That is the number one way to describe it. I am a plus sized woman, yet I fit it the seat, and there is lumbar support. It is a nice looking SUV, black with grey interior, but looks like all the other 2018 SUV models out there. Everyone seems to have the same basic design. It handles well on the road, has excellent safety features, gets an average of 20 mpg gas for in town driving. I rarely take it on highways because there is no need to do that for me. It has all the up to date digital functions, most of which I do not use. Stereo is excellent! I do not like that the seat's forward and back movement is manual, a lever in between my feet at the base of the seat. I did not get any extra features due to cost, and do think the price tag is steep, about $34k, but Hyundai's have a habit of living a long time with few problems. Our last one was 15 years old when traded in on this, engine in excellent condition, but little stuff going bad.
