My navy blue 2005 six-cylinder Santa Fe is a workhorse. I bought it new; it was my second Santa Fe. It is a sedan-based (not truck-based) SUV, so it handles likes a car and not like a truck. The car has a leather interior and all of the bells and whistles available at the time. Gas mileage is about 19 city and 22 highway. It sits high which gives me good visibility. The moon roof is a pleasure in the spring and autumn, but it does make a lot of noise when the car travels over 50 MPH. I live in San Francisco where parking is an ever-worsening problem. However, the Santa Fe is a good size and maneuverable enough to parallel park with little problem. It handles well - it's not a Porsche, but it's not a clumsy truck either. Five adults can sit comfortably. The back seats fold down... (more)
Story
I have won informal "bets" with people - yes, men - that I couldn't get into very tight parking spots with the Santa Fe. I need no more than 12" more than the length of the Santa Fe to park it without smashing into the car in front and the car in back.
Pros
My favorite feature is the sun/moon roof which both opens completely and opens a little on a slant. I like its maneuverability and my ability to parallel park it into tight spots in the city. I do appreciate that I can increase the trunk space by flattening the back seats which is handy for me because I commute weekly 360 miles round trip. I have purchased three Hyundai Santa Fe's, and have gotten substantial loyalty discounts on the final price. I don't know whether this is at the option of the dealer or if it is the company's policy.
Cons
The mileage isn't great. But the car is ten years old, and hybrids were not available when I purchased it, so I had no expectations that were disappointed. I have mentioned that I like the feature of the back seats flattening to increase the cargo space. I find that this isn't easy, however, because it takes a while for the headrests to be disconnected from the seats (which is necessary for the seat to fold down).

2005 Hyundai Santa Fe - Overall, a smooth ride for a SUV, but this year and model does have its hiccups with maintenance and recalls.

The vehicle rides smoothly and picks up speed rather quickly. What I do not like about the vehicle is prior to getting to 35,000 miles, I had to go to the dealership rather than to Midas or Firestone to have many parts replacements due to malfunctions and several errors causing the engine light to come on; a total of four errors at once. There are recalls for my make/model and year of Santa Fe every year, which is an inconvenience. Otherwise, the vehicle is OK for driving occasionally to and from work. I do take it on long-distance trips every few years to "air it out" going over 800+ miles, and it gets me to where I need to go without any hassles.
Story
When I lived near my family up north, I often laughed at how little mileage I had on my vehicle and offered to let my brother use my SUV for business trips. When he would go on business trips and he knew I had off work, he would invite me along since my food would be comped by his job anyway. Those were good times, and it allowed for someone else to drive my vehicle to rack up mileage. For a 2... (more)
Pros
Smooth driving, steering, picks up speed quickly when entering the highway or roadway, has a moon roof, CD disc changer, and tons of other features like leather seats that heat up and anti-child locks.
Cons
Many recalls and so much maintenance required prior to hitting 35,000 miles on the vehicle. I must have spent over $3,000 getting repairs fixed at the dealership, and these were not issues that could be fixed at places like Midas or Firestone where it would have been cheaper. Ever since all of the issues had been fixed, I have not had problems since, minus a few recalls since --about one per year.
