The 1st 10 days of Santa Fe Limited LWB ended yesterday. The most pleasing aspect is the ride. It seems effortless, quite and responsive. I'm not pleased with the suspension over bumps. It feels like there is a additional bounce or two from the tire that possibly a slightly stiffer spring/shock might help. I love the interior, it's comfortable and spacious. The engine is responsive to my right foot and the average MPG meter is teaching my to drive again. I might add that I only have 473 miles on it and I'm 61 years old

Not an owner yet but I think I've found the most active Santa Fe forum. Currently own a BMW E90 sedan that is outliving it's usefullness with 3 kids. Former owner of 1st and 2nd generation Acura MDX. I already have mods in mind.

Bought mine a week ago today.

I have a 2013 White Limited Santa Fe LWB with the Technology Package. I also own a 2012 Sonata Hybrid. I'm loving both cars! Interesting to see the Sonata used 5W-20 and the Santa Fe used 5W-30 oil. I will be changing the oil myself at 7500 miles with synthetic and a Napa Gold (Wix) oil filter.

I love the panoramic sunroof and the captains chairs are a hit with my family. So much legroom. This is the coolest car we've ever owned.

Today my car is at the dealership to get the "Pro Pack" treatments on the interior/exterior and the loaner car they gave me is a brand new (233 miles on it) Santa Fe Sport 2.0 Turbo! That thing is also super nice! Lots of power! Best loaner car I've ever had.

You should read page 1.5 of your owners manual.
It states your should not hot rod nor hold steady speed for the first 600 miles.
I am breaking mine in old school, varying the speed and NOT setting the cruise control.
Driving like that I am getting 29 + MPG around town and on the freeway.
I traded in a "Rough Rider 2013 Kia Sorento and was only getting 26+ ON IT.
THE HYUNDAI IS MUCH MORE REFINED in every way THAN THE KIA!!!

Nice forum! Current Honda Pilot owner looking at a 2013 GLS. I'll hopefully pull the trigger on the new car by the end of the month.

First Time Hyundai Owner

Im a first time Hyundai owner. After being an Acura customer for the last 13 years, wanted to change and drive an SUV. The SF LWB caught my eye and finally got one last week. A few things surprised me about the car, especially a few things it lacked. I was very surprised to see that the car, even though its a limited, does not not come with memory seat buttons. This is pretty much a standard feature on cars with power seats. Also the passenger seat, which is power, doesn't have the up/down option, which my wife hates because she's short. That being said, im in love with my car, and overall very happy with my purchase. My mod plans include the HID headlights and fogs and installing a hitch.

Hello -- I'm a new Santa Fe Limited FWD, and first time Hyundai owner. Hope I'm in the right forum as I can't find a description of all the abbreviations (LWB? - long wheel base?) and don't see a forum listed for the 6-seater. Anyway -- I've been driving my new light blue Santa Fe since the end of May and I love it. Have driven it round trip from the DC suburbs to Baton Rouge, LA and just got back from trip from DC to Dauphin Island, AL. Wonderful trip both times and absolutely no problems. My biggest complaint so far is the lack of decent cup holders for the 2nd row captains chairs -- a silly oversight for a car with plenty of room for them! (the angled holders in the lower doors are for capped bottles only and pretty useless for drive thru sodas).
We previously were solid Honda-only owners - we still have a CRV and Fit. But we wanted a bigger car for travels and the Pilot is just Ugly! I also wanted a little of the lux-factor and with this Santa Fe we got it. The thing I'm worried about is reliability -- the Honda's are top-notch with that - so moving to the Hyundai is a leap of faith. I'm interested in seeing what other owners are experiencing. One new thing that I've noticed is a little brake squeaking when moving slow (such as in a drive-thru lane). Anybody have problems with that? It is come & go and started before this last trip to Alabama. Too soon for brake probs I would hope...
