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.
