I was curious to know about the high mileage Santa Fe's out there. If you think that you have a high miler Santa Fe, please respond with the distance you and your Santa Fe have travelled and details of any significant repairs that you have had or any breakdowns that left you on the side of the road.

What do you consider high mileage? I have about 70K on mine and have had no problems what so ever. Just routine maintenance and she purrs like a kitten!

P.S. Welcome to the forum!

I've got a 2007 3.3 ltr. with 148,000 km. (92,000 miles). All we have done to the beast is change oil to synthetic and change every 10,000 km, and put a new set of tires on it. I will be changing the spark plugs and brakes this weekend. Has any one done a 2 gen plugs? I hope it is the same as the 1 gen as I did them in our 2000 3.3 ltr (?). Not fun but just have to take your time.

Give me a couple years and I'll have a high miler. Wife's 05 Murano just turned 200,000 miles and my recently sold 03 Jetta was at 197,000 miles. I bought the Sante Fe expecting to put a lot of miles on it. I'm curious to see the replies here as well.

07 Sante Fe Limited 2WD 37k miles - Avg 25 mpg
05 Dodge 3500 Dually with a big inline 6 Cummins - 90k miles - 18 mpg
05 Nissan Murano (wife's) - 205k miles - 25 mpg

I'm only @ ~50Kmi on my 2008 GLS, AWD, 2.7L, but it was first a rental, second owner was a salesman who did lots of driving, then bought by me. The interior, exterior and drivetrain have taken the abuse perfectly so far. It's tight, squeak and rattle free. The only items that have been replaced are tires, pads and rotors all the way around. I've gone through and changed every fluid/lube/oil aside from the PS fluid and brake fluid. Atleast for the models up to 2009, that's where they shine IMO. The ease of maintenance. Drain/fill plugs on everything and everything is easy to access. Hopefully the 2010's are as well.

Yeah, at least until we get to the spark plugs. This thing DOES have six spark plugs, right? That back bank looks as ugly as anything I've tackled on a transverse engine.

Also, while I had the shield off the other day, got to thinking about fuel injection cleaning (quite some miles away, but my curiosity got the better of me), and I took a look at the fuel rail. Does this thing have a Schrader valve anywhere besides the five on the tires?!? Didn't spot one anywhere. hmaservice shows a "Fuel Pressure Gage Adapter" and a separate connector for the gauge that appear to have to be installed in-line to even get a pressure reading. How am I supposed to run my BG through the fuel rail at 50K and 100K with that lash-up? I hate doing the "dump it in the tank" version. Never seems to be quite as effective.

That said, I haven't heard of any of the high mileage guys complaining about injector issues, either.

I'm surprised at the lack of response to the survey; I'm putting on at least 50K-km annually on my Santa Fe and thought that there would be some similar high milers that were a few years older and had a history to share.

Is there really nobody out there with an older 2G, say an '07 Santa Fe with 190K-km (~120K-miles), or an '08 with 150K-km (~90K-miles) or so?

Wow...some of you guys are racking up the miles. My 07 Santa Fe only has 49K km on it. So far the vehicle has only had one issue that just surfaced last week...sway bar end links that the dealer replaced under warranty. I have been completely satisfied with this vehicle so far.

Video Games will send you straight to H*ll and Satan has a Rail Gun.
