2005 Hyundai Santa Fe Quick Test Drive with a WOT 0-60.
THis one has the 2.7L DOHC V6 making 173 HP while mated to a 4 speed auto.
These disparately beg for more gears. The 4 speed Auto just slows things down badly. It's a bit quicker than the base model newer style 2007 Santa Fe's as these older 1's as they weigh less. The Korny Monsoon Radio was OK ( Better than the base system found on other cars but really it sounds more like a Passing Cloud.

Hyundai Santa Fe 4WD 2.4 GLS Full Review,Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
The 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe ranks 10 out of 23 Affordable Midsize SUVs. This ranking is based on our analysis of 45 published reviews and test drives of the Hyundai Santa Fe, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.
It's a good thing the 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe stands out for its price, because reviewers say it's a forgettable SUV that doesn't stand out for much else.
If you need midsize SUV, the 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe has one of the lowest prices in the class. When you add in the fact that it has standard features like Bluetooth, steering wheel audio controls, a USB port, and excellent fuel economy, going for the Santa Fe seems like a no-brainer.
But, most car reviewers say that if there's room in your budget, check out the competition before settling on the Santa Fe. While its fuel economy numbers are great, the Santa Fe has forgettable performance and styling. Plus, while the Santa Fe used to offer a third row, making it a good choice for families with lots of kids and college tuitions to save for, it is no longer an option.
In short, the Santa Fe is a strong choice for SUV buyers on a budget. When you add in its long warranty, people who put their wallets first will find a lot to like. But, if you're interested in performance, style or an upscale interior, the Santa Fe will disappoint.
Other SUVs to Consider
To get an SUV at the same or lower price as the Santa Fe, you should check out compact SUVs. Most midsize SUVs cost more. The good news is, by going for a compact SUV you'll save on money and gas, though you will give up some cargo and passenger space. The 2011 Chevrolet Equinox is a good alternative to the Santa Fe, because even though it's a compact SUV, it's one of the largest in the class. It gets excellent fuel economy and while it has fewer standard features than the Santa Fe, reviewers say its interior feels nicer. However, it does start at about $1,000 more than the Santa Fe does.
If you like the feel of the Santa Fe and Hyundai's long warranty, take a look at the Hyundai Tucson. Not only is it less expensive, it's also more stylish. It doesn't have quite as much interior space, but reviewers still say its interior is comfortable and practical.
If you need a third row, take a look at the Toyota Highlander. It costs about $4,000 more than the Santa Fe but its third-row are standard. While it's more expensive than the Santa Fe, it's one of the least expensive three-row midsize SUVs available.

The 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe comes in three trims -- the GLS, SE and Limited. All-wheel drive is available on all trim levels. For 2011, changes are small; there are a few new exterior colors. A USB port and Bluetooth hands free phone system are newly standard.Santa Fe offers impressive room, build quality, and standard safety features, all at competitive prices. Hyundai's generous warranty is another value plus. GLS models need more zip, and all Santa Fes could benefit from a better ride and handling balance. Most shoppers, though, should find this crossover a satisfying choice." -- Consumer Guide
"Like the rest of Hyundai's lineup, it's a good value." -- Car and Driver
" . . a commendable midsize crossover SUV choice.."The Santa Fe has performance that reviewers say is adequate for around-town driving. While it's pleasant and composed, the Santa Fe's performance isn't thrilling. Then again, few midsize SUVs are a blast to drive.

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Review
Gearing up to release the third-generation Santa Fe, the decision makers at Hyundai plotted a strategy that would put the crossover on as many shopping lists as possible.
With three engines and two different wheelbase models to choose from, Hyundai will offer a five-passenger Sport model as well as a 7-passenger LWB (long wheel base) Santa Fe that replaces the slow-selling Vera Cruz.
But the differences don't end there, with some desperately needed refreshed styling and much-reduced body weight. Reemerging onto the market as a sleeker, more functional and more efficient vehicle, the Santa Fe has shed 266 lbs from the old model, allowing five out of the six versions to weigh less than 4,000 lbs.
