Hi All,

I am going to look at purchasing a 03-05 Diesel Santa Fe.

The ones I'm looking at have good service history, I'm just wondering if there any any specific issues with the older models that I should keep an eye out for when I go to look at one ?

Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Kenny

Hi Kenny,
Actually no specific items come to mind.
Only check if timing belt was changed at some x00k kms (service, LLL). Also check electrics working like windows, mirrors, (remote) central door locks, window wipers, airco, instrument backlights, fog lights.
Also you could look at smooth engine idling, no blue or black smoke at exhaust.
And no cloncking or grinding sounds at the wheels (bearings, suspention).
Good luck,
Paul
