Pros : fuel,style

Cons : quality of the vehicle

  i own a santa fe 2011 feb model...a couple of weeks ago it broke down in the middle of the highway due to clutch failure. the vehicle has to be towed to the nearest showroom and they charged me Rs.50,000, saying the whole clutch assembly has to be changed.after some request they have put them partly in warranty and charged me thirty thousand.the vehicle has clogged 46000 kms and the latest service was done at 39000 kms. is this the quality of hyundai.i promised myself i will never buy a hyundai again.i want to know if this happens to every owner of a 25 lakhs hyundai car. Thank you...

    i am not a fool to write a review like that.may be you should read some magazines and gadgets n books to find out who is best and who is not.what do you mean you had owned..does dat mean you sold it..why would you do that if you have the best. for your information i am an automobile engineer myself.also the vehicle has clogged more than 46000kms in a very short period.

    I do not see any reason than these to use such words called fool 1) You are from Hyundai and deliberately want to hide mistake and sell it 2) You are not ready to understand the value of feedback of existing user of the same product. Let us be soft and gentle on what we are trying to convey.

    hyundai has some niggling problems and Koreans have been deliberately compromising the quality by maintaing their margins/profits .I owned a tuscon in past and suffered a lot and paid heavy maintenance bills .They can not compete with Toyota /honda and other Europeans Quality standards.

    I am having similar problems after completing 50,000 kms in 2 years and now there are insisting on replacing the complete clutch plate at Rs 50,000 since the clutch assembly is not covered in warranty. Can you advise how you were able to reduce the amount while paying the bills. Cheers

    I own a Santa Fe, Dec 2010 model. I was one of the first to get a delivery of the car when it was launched ion India. The car was imported from Korea. Interestingly, i have had similar problems with the clutch plate. Luckily for me, the problem happened whilst the car was in warranty. The company changes everything at no cost to me. It did surprise me however as to how the clutch plate got faulty so soon after purchase and it had not even clocked a lot of mileage. 3 years of using the car and i must admit the SUV is very good in looks, performance etc. The Hyundai service specially the dealer Safdarjung Hyundai has been excellent throughout. My only disappointments have been with the clutch. I only wish the company would launch the new model in a automatic version so that i can do a trade in. For a 7 seater there is no comparison in this price bracket.
