I'm curious if the 2nd row ANGLE could be reduced to where they fold more flat instead of the slope. There must be some tweak to do this. I have no use for a 2nd row but haven't bought the car yet to take a look-see. I'd love to adjust that angle though.

Buy a seat belt extender from Toyota (since Hyundai does not make them) and use it. Put your seat belt into the extender and leave the extender snapped into the seat belt female connection that normally holds your seat belt. Works for my pals.

HI....owned the FIRSt Hyundai out there, Excel, back in 1989. Going back to Hyundai, hopefully, within the week. This time, a Santa Fe. Husband and son want slate blue gray leather, cause they are worried about the beige interior. I spend a lot of time in my car, but no longer have little kids (16 and 19). I need HONEST opinions on how the leather holds up so I can make a decision.....I want the Natural Khaki with beige leather, but will go with their choice if the beige is impossible to take care of.
Anyone can help me out? Thanks!

I have an 08 SF Limited in Slate Blue exterior and the beige leather interior. I have had it over a year and it is still good as new. About the only issue I have had is that my winter leather coat (black) will leave a little stain, but a quick cleaning with a good leather cleaner takes care of that quickly. My opinion--go for the beige!

Thanks, I'd like to and I'm hoping I can get more opinions in favor of it for my husband to agree!!

I just bought a new 09 Santa Fe Limited with the Beige leather interior also and it looks great. Love the GPS and the Infinity sound system Too.

How long have you had it? I love the look of the beige, but worried about wear. Edmunds gave it BAD reviews about holding up over time. Worries me.

I recently bought the 09 Santa Fe Limited with the combo Natural Khaki and beige interior, great combination. I would suggest putting a sealant on the leather to protect it from stains and wear/tear. This can be done at the dealership or a detailer.

I have an '08 SE, Natural Khaki with beige CLOTH interior. Almost 2 years old, numerous trips with grandkids and only one little stain that came out with Resolve. Guess it all depends on how well you treat the upholstery...and the car.
