Just found this group and was hoping someone might be able to help me. I am looking to buy a 2004 Santa Fe. The lot that has it is advertising it as a GLS but looking over the equipment it seems pretty heavily loaded plus their price is more in line with the LX. It has leather, monsoon stereo, 3.5 liter engine with AWD. Also has auto climate control but no electric seats nor sunroof. I have even tried carfax, but when running the VIN they show it as "GLS/LX" Don't know why Hyundai doesn't label them. I have had the same issue with my father in law's SF. He can't remember which his is..Anything that is only on the LX and not an option on the GLS? I was reading on one review site and they sounded to say that the 3.5 with 4wd was only on the LX but dont' know if that is correct.
Thanks in advance.
Oh, is there any scary problems this model might have? I was headed toward a Lexus RX300 until I found they are plagued with transmission problems.
