Ive got a 2002 Santa Fe with 31,000 miles on it, and, its just as tight
and rattle free as the day i brought it home. Just wondering how they
are with alot of miles on them, and, what problems people have had up
to the warranty expiration ? Would you buy another Santa Fe ? Have you
grown tired of the styling ? Thanks.
108k on my 01 GLS. Our 03.0 LX has about 85k on it.
As for rattles, heres what I've got:
A> Cheap aftermarket single-DIN-to-double-DIN converter for the stereo
rattles (Not Hyundai's fault).
B> Rear window clamp rattles on severe washboard dirt roads. Visual
check says the plastic window latch mechanism is wearing out. The 03 LX
uses metal in this location and doesn't have a problem. Worst case
C> Mild 'clunk' in the front end going over larger potholes. I haven't
fully investigated the issue but it appears from looking at rockauto.com
it couldn't cost more than $175 to fix (or as little as $14, if its just
a crappy ball joint)
Now, I do have what sounds like a couple bent exhaust valves on my
engine. That likely has a lot to do with the dealership in Nacogdoches,
