Excellent warranty package (5 years)
Limited Optional Extras
Not a Jeep
I bought a Hyundai Santa Fe because I wanted a 4x4 with excellent reliability/warranty. Hyundai were prepared to put their money where their mouth is and offered 5 years compared to everybody elses 3 years. I previously had a Jeep Cherokee 4.0L Ltd SE which I worshipped, unfortunatley every other week it needed something replacing or it broke down.
I bought the Santa Fe 2.0 CRD with added leather interior, privacy glass, wheel arch flares and Supaguard package(including mats, headlight protectors, and paint protection) all for 17k otr.
It's looks are OK, though not a Jeep and the specification again is good though not a Jeep, however reliabilty is far superior and parts/servicing are reasonable(very unlike a Jeep)
Fuel economy is a touch dissapointing as at present I am only getting 30mpg, which is no better than my 4.0L LPG Jeep Cherokee achieved.
I am looking at adding a few toys such as cruise and A bars etc... As yet the Jury is still out, I loved my Cherry and only like my Santa Fe but can't help but feel my Hyundai ain't no Cherry, although my Hyundai is still on the road where as my Jeep was often off it, and I don't mean dirt busting.
