2004 Hyundai Santa Fe Base 2.4 from North America
3.5 liter is the only one worth buying
The one and only thing that has gone wrong with the car is that the car pulses at times, It vibrates severely. I took it to the dealer to get it fixed, but they couldn't get it to pulse, so they did nothing. I had the manager sit in it when it pulsed and he told me they would fix it. I haven't had the opportunity to drop it buy because they have no loaner and I have to work. (Pulses till this day.)
This car has no pick-up.
Rides surprisingly smooth.
I get 20mpg on the highway, (very disappointed)
Good factory radio.
Great safety features.
Back seats recline. Why is Hyundai one of few that recline?
Very disappointing performance.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I have a 2004 Sonata that vibrates to. They keep telling me I have to break it in. I also don't have great pick up. I am actually mad a t myself for trading my Monte Carlo. I will stick with Chevy next time. Great cars and you get good service.
If it has ABS, there has been a recall for the dealer to adjust the ABS programming. If your shudder starts at low speed, when it is damp or wet it sounds like the recall. Check it out!
