My 3rd Santa Fe

by GrandmaP from Springfield | February 01, 2020

I have had great luck in owning the Hyundai Santa Fe models. They are reliable, and have great pick up and handling. This is my third Santa Fe, and I am pleased with the third row option, and storage space.

calling Hyundai Corporate Offi. to get a case man

by The words exspessor from EHT NJ | December 06, 2019

The car is great and is over all the best cars Ive owned but dealing with Hyundai corporate, they don't care about you individually or your circumstances and they are short an brief with you about everything and saying it on their dime. They will not reimburse you at all and their lack of respect for you personally and losing time and money if you need your car for other reason to make money they don't care about you. I have far better customer satisfaction from ford, honda , Nissan that better take care of their customers to the fullest extent and they don't give you these worries since you are not first customer owned car. They don't stand by their product at all or give you an extended warranty with the car due to their product failures for a recall and I as a Hyundai owner am not asking for the world here but I no longer wanna deal with Hyundai and you shouldn't either. Definitely sharing this with the better business bureau as well. I would recommend this vehicle but no longer will due to a corrupt unhappy worker for Hyundai that's never available to talk to you or concerned that your frustrated.
