Crisp redesign of goofy original Santa Fe – looks like a larger Tucson. Leather interior, w/heated seats, satellite radio, intelligent navigation/CD/climate control displays, reasonable back seat, or room to carry a bale of hay, 3.3-liter V6/5-speed automatic delivers adequate power smoothly.
Priced right at top of very competitive market. Appalling gas mileage for small-to-medium SUV (they claim 24 highway, I got 20)
I had this pegged as a bargain around $27,000, so $32,000 was a Toyota-sized shock. The mileage was the coup de grace. 20 mpg highway can be approached by a Ford Excursion. Bang the gong, please.
