I believe you posted in the wrong forum. The Santa Fe LWB 7 Seater forum is here: DM 2013+ LWB 7 Seater models - Hyundai Forums : Hyundai Forum

3. No button to release lift gate from cabin.

4. No option for proximity key on 7 passenger GLS. Proximity key is available on the Limited but limited is only a 6 passenger.

4. No option for panoramic sunroof on 7 passenger. Same reason as proximity key.

5. Stereo sound quality is horrible even with the Dimension system.

6. Would like a better horn. The horn on our Toyota Camery sounds much better.

7. Would like a chirp (not from the horn) to confirm doors locked when using FOB, and make it so that I can turn it off with the settings menu if I desire.

8. No option for a power lift gate.

There may be more, but that's it right now.

I don't like that the panoramic sun roof shade closes when I close the sun roof.

Actually, there is, at least on the Limited. I missed it as well until someone pointed it out. Mine is on the centre roof console, where the map lights are located. Not sure if the GLS has one and whether it is located in the same spot.

I'm still shocked that the dealers do not have any Limited's in stock. I understand it's a production issue around the country. Some key features are only available on the Limited trim such as sunroof, proximity key, power lift gate, and upgraded infinity sound system (which is very good in my opinion). It's a shame you can't get any of those options on a GLS, and it's a shame you can't get a 7 seat Limited.

I got the one and only Limited my dealer had on the lot. Just happened to be the color and have the options I wanted. Looking back, it's a little surprising that I was able to get the deal I got. Usually when cars are in short supply, dealers don't want to deal. In fact, another couple came in asking about a Limited while I was at the dealer. I heard another sales guy tell them that they only had 1 on the lot, and that guy over there (pointing at me) was buying it.

When I was at my dealer on Saturday, they had four or five of them.

There are 7 Hyundai dealers within a 25 mile radius of me. Combined, they have a total of 6 SF Limited AWD and 13 SF Limited FWD in stock. Ironically, of those 19 Limiteds, 12 are at one dealer. The remaining 6 dealers have a grand total of 7 Limiteds on their lot. My dealer has no Limiteds in stock at the moment.

Default Wear the belt

You will find Hyundai did that for a reason the drivers side is the only belt in the truck that does not have a loop in the belt to stop it from making noise on the pillar, you know the laws differ from Canada and the USA but I still don't understand why people don't ware their belts, just don't.

The fix is simple wear the dam* thing!!!! Did you know that the majority of deaths related to not wearing seat belts take place close, as in "local", to home??? The young people around here think its cool to NOT wear them and are dying because of it.
Come to SC. Its a law down here and its enforced. Don't care how close the beer store is.

There, haven't been able to sound like a Dad for quite a while!!! My son is 48 and has heard it all. Wears his belts too.

I rode in the passenger seat last week and I really did not like how low it is. Suppose, and I mean suppose, could you raise it using metal spacers between the bolts and still be considered safe? Just a thought.
