2001 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS 2.7L from North America
Good looking, but too many problems/headaches
I have had the car for almost one year.
These are the problems fixed so far:
-Fog light switch
-Rear door switch/handle
-Rear wiper motor
-Starter (left me stranded at work)
-Front pass. seat belt unit
-Front pass. window assembly (made noise going down)
-Front pass. door locks (lock would get stuck)
-Rear brakes squeal continuously, disk brakes.
-Seat belt chime delay.
I bought a 1st model year vehicle and am paying the price.
Also, the engine is underpowered.
They are slowly rebuilding my car part by part.
Overall, inside of car is comfortable and quiet. Nice features, i.e. cup holders, sunglass holder, map lights.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
