    I bought my 2008 Santa Fe in May 2009 with 30,000 miles on it. Aside from the recent air-bat recalls, I've been extremely satisfied with the vehicle itself. But yesterday I became EXTREMELY disappointed to find out that Hyundai, who mostly became known for it's 100,000 warranty and is one of their biggest selling points, will not honor that warranty for the power train if you're the SECOND OWNER. So I had a HARD wake-up call yesterday when the check engine light came on, the part involved was related to the power train, but I had to pay for the $300+ repair because my car now has 66,000+ miles. The other issue I had was the gas tank sensor fiasco - You fill up the tank and it reads empty...fortunately I was still under warranty for that one, but I read it repeats. AND after leaving the dealership from that repair yesterday, the check engine light came back up and now it came back with a misfire code for pistons 1 and 6. I'll let you know how that works out - they had to keep the car.

    Bought our 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe for our first retirement car. We now have about 65,000 miles on the car - mostly highway driving. The Santa Fe looks, rides, and drives like new. The Hyundai dealer has been great. We have had no problems with the car. We average about 20 mpg - sometimes as much as 23 mpg traveling cross country. WE LOVE OUR HYUNDAI.

    I bought a 2008 Santa Fe and initially was very happy with it, then it started to delay going from reverse to forward and when it kicked in it jerked forward, which we thought as just the 4 wheel drive kicking in until the transmission conked out and it was led off to the dealership. For only 75K Kms this is not good, but am waiting on Hyundai to say weather they will cover it or if I'm supposed to fork out $25K

    I purchased my 2008 Santa Fe on April 1, 2009. Yes, I thought I might be the April Fool's joke for doing so, but I had compared it to all the smaller SUVs in its class. I have now owned it for almost two years. I am quite happy with it. I get an average of 22 MPG, but on vacations I have gotten 26 MPG and 28 MPG! That's amazing for its size. My only complaints are the interior and the road noise. The interior is not as "plush" as I'd like it to be and the road noise can be a bit louder than I prefer. But, other than those to MINOR complaints, I love it so far. I have had a bit of a problem with the left headlight. The dim sometimes doesn't want to work, but the bright will. I assume something is loose, but haven't had it fixed yet.

    Horrible/excruciating interior noise when rear windows are opened while driving...so bad that it hurts your ears!!! Front suspension was never very surefooted...sometimes floaty/bouncy and other times jarring...recently developed a very loud knocking noise from the right front suspension (vehicle has 33008 miles)...will be taking the vehicle to the Hyundai dealer for diagnosis of this issue and hopefully a repair covered by the warranty...

    just bought the truck 12/9/09 and it has 33,404 miles on it. 2wks into having the truck, my check engine light came on.. Full bumper to bumper warranty, so i took it to the dealer in Clarksville, MD.. tech comes out and says it was the 3rd cylinder spark plug and he says he replaced it.. Not 24hrs later, i get up the next morning and it's misfiring again.. so i go to another Hyundai dealer and he says the problem is the same thing i went to the original dealer in Clarksville where i bought the truck from.. So, they give me the run around about some codes on the diagnostic system and say that in order for them to repair what was suppose to be repaired their system has to show "misfire" as well because right now it's showing a historical code.. Long story short.. they end up keeping my truck for two days to say, oh it's the spark plug and the coil pk and that the original tech at the dealer,never changed the plug.. Nonetheless the problem was what i told them in the first place and they pretty much knew it but gave me a hard time anyway.. Just strange that a 08 truck with that low of miles would have problems already with the coil pk and plugs??
