A great truck by zoo53 on 08/07/2004. Trim: 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS 4WD, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Have owned this suv for 3 years, trouble free...the battery just went. Other than that.....not 1 problem.
Cons: The only thing is I wish the front seats were a little wider and softer.
Overall review: I'm going to buy a new one next week.

Buyer Beware! by Bitter Hyundai Owner in San Diego on 09/27/2003. Trim: 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Looks nice until your paint goes and the dash peels after 2 whole years. It does have a lot of cargo room.
Cons: It has a lot of get-up-and-SLOW. Hyundai is evil and they do not back up their vehicles-thank God for the warranty because your going to need it. It broke down a month after I had it two times. It is recall city! Hyundai lied about the RPM on several models-it came out when they got sued. They had to extend everyone's warranty but only a hand full of owners knew anything about it.
Overall review: Look it up Hyundai lawsuits before you buy. Personally, my family and I will never buy from them again.

Trustworthy by Rural from Ohio on 10/29/2013. Trim: 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS 4WD, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: The 4wd is Great in the snow! A lot of features for a great price.
Cons: Acceleration/horsepower is below competing vehicles. Brakes and bearings seem to need more frequent changing than other similar vehicles.
Overall review: After 226,000 miles on my '01 Santa Fe, I am convinced that Hyundai is a formidable competitor to the big 3 Japanese auto makers.

The Ideal SUV. by 'Victoria" Norwich, N. Y. on 03/08/2011. Trim: 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe GL V6 4WD, Owned 7 years.
Pros: Dependability, performance,appearance, liked that they didnt change body style for few years, people never knew how old my car was. I have loved this one.Am going for 150,000 miles, my son ,the mechanic, says its good for 200,000.
Cons: Mileage per gallon is disappointing. Never been above 20 mpg. Its about 17mpg now, gets a full service tuneup once a year. One rust spot this winter, first seen. Incredible. May treat her to a new paint job this summer. I love my shiny black Santa Fe.
Overall review: Bought this car used, some refurbing at that time. Its dependability and performance has been amazing.My son, the mechanic, has been suprised how over the years that its still has the "pep", like a new car.He has always taken my cars out to see how they run "flat out". He has been suprised . Lots of room for the family, love the hatch back. Great car.
