2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Hyundai Santa Fe
The best feature on the vehicle is the rear camera.
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!
"Hyundai makes good cars!!".
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.
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.
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.
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.
I guess you'd just have to drive one to see for yourself.
I love my Santa Fe. We've only had it since may, , but I love the way it drives. Gets good gas mileage. Haven't had any complaints so far, really hope I never have any. It also came with a 10 year warranty, , better than any other vehicle that I have heard about. We also got $3000. cash back. Many great benefits. Great service where we bought our new SUV. I have nothing negative to say, so I guess I am just really pleased with this new car.
A SUV that feels like a car.
I like a lot of the technical features and I like the height of the vehicle. I have the leather interior and the heated and cooling seats. The is plenty of leg room in the back seat. One problem is if you do not get the 19 inch wheels, you have a ride like a truck. I like the “around the car” camera view when you are backing up. I would like to be able to get it in a v6. Even with the turbo it lacks some power.
The body design is very nice and has a great eye appeal.
This is the second vehicle of this make and they get better by the year. The ride is great and very comfortable and the interior is very similar from year to year but they manage to change just enough to make it look like they have done a lot. The interior is very well designed and the ride is great. The ride on the open highway is very comfortable and with the new features it makes it very nice to travel with.
Love my Hyundai Santa Fe! Reliable, affordable and safe!
I live this vehicle. We bought it a few months ago and it has been amazing to have something I can rely on. It's an affordable, safe, and reliable car. Love my 3rd row seat and all the upgrades. I had a hyundai 2009 before, which bought my trust in the company. I also love the heated and cooling seats. One thing I dislike is that you have to connect with a cord. I'd prefer to just have it all bluetooth setup.
Excellent car for senior citizens!
No complaints on the vehicle. The performance is excellent. It is a great car for seniors! There are alarm sounds if your drifting into other lanes. Unless the changing signals are on than there is no alarm sounds. The interior blue lights are easy on the eyes at night. The only thing I found difficult getting use to is the accelerator pedal. My foot has to press down hard. To accelerate.
