2010 Hyundai Santa Fe Review:
My wife and I looked at and test drove a few crossovers/small SUV's in the low $20k's before buying the 2010 Santa Fe. The contenders were: 2010 Hyundai Tucson, 2010 Chevy Equinox, a used Hyundai Veracruz, and a used Nissan Murano.
The Hyundai Tucson: Pros: Gas Mileage / Excellent styling; Con: Cramped
Chevy Equinox: Pros: Excellent exterior styling, roomier; Cons: Highly trendy interior, 'okay' ride, a few grand more in price
Used Hyundai Veracruz: Pros: Nice exterior styling, roomy; Cons: Gas mileage, 'okay' interior styling
Used Nissan Murano: Cons: Most models in this price range had many miles, and are the outdated 2008- models
2010 SANTA FE: Pros: Nice exterior styling, our favorite interior of all, roomy enough, good gas mileage, the best stereo system of the contenders, great price, the color of ours, "Black Forest Green," is one of the classiest vehicle colors I've ever seen, comfortable seats, smooth enough ride; Cons: Not great acceleration, but we gladly traded that for M'sPG
We bought this vehicle recently, so we don't have any reliability comments. However, Hyundai offers an excellent warranty, and we bought the extended warranty for $1,400, covering even the radio up to 120,000 miles on the vehicle.
We wear big cheesy grins every time we take it for a ride!
