My Santa Fe by Roz in Arizona on 06/03/2012. Trim: 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS 3.5L, Owned 7 years.
Pros: Extremely comfortable seating and headroom. Controls easily accessed. Rides like a dream and holds the road well. Good finish on exterior and interior. Braking is very effective, steering is smooth and easy. Heating and a/c good.
Cons: Gas consumption hasn't ever been better than 17-18 mpg..A little too much pressure at initial acceleration causes car to jump forward; caution required. Car has less than 44 thou miles but I replaced the battery 3 times, most recent 3 days ago. Car in for routine maintenance, battery supposedly checked, at the dealership, one week prior to having to replace it. First battery lasted until 9/2009. The replacement failed & was replaced 12/ 2010. Both replacements were Hyundai batteries, installed by a Hyundai dealer. No inside release for trunk door. Interior cover for sun roof must be closed by hand, difficult for a shorter person. Same is true for interior, overhead light switdh.
Overall review: My overall experience with the 2005 Santa Fe has been positive. I would recommend it to someone looking for a comfortable car with heated leather seats, daytime running lights, good radio/cd player, and sun roof.

Engine blew within 10 days by Sara on 01/31/2012. Trim: 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS 2.7L 4WD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Looks great, drives great
Cons: Had the car for 10 days and it threw a rod which completely blew the engine. Granted the car had 100k miles on it but The car gave no indication that there was anything wrong with it and we were 400 miles away from home when it happened. I know we have to account for previous owners misusing the vehicle but I must say I was very disappointed. I expected more from Hyundai.
Overall review: This has left a very bad impression on me.

My "Go Buggy" by Jo from N C Kansas on 10/12/2009. Trim: 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS 2.7L, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Steers and handles very smoothly and tightly.
Cons: The attachment point for front seat belts is very difficult to reach and click in with one hand. The cup holders and "junk slots" in the front console are too far back for comfortable reaching, especially for the driver.
Overall review: I would certainly purchase this vehicle again. Any faults are very minor and easily overcome.
