Who ever owns a 2001 santa fe and lives in florida the paint job gone. You need a 1,500 paint job they are all defective. There should be a class action suit against hyundai for making the 4 cycl santa fe junk. You fix one thing another one breaks.
2001 Manual 4Cylinder One of the worst (i know that the 6Cylinder have less issues)this was one of the cars that gave me a job to do every weekend replacing everything and anything. The only good thing at 124k was the transmission motor gave out (tesnion pulley gave out on freeway and cylinder hit the valves) and to many other issues to list. Stay away from the 4cylinder Santa Fe.
