The rear cover is now an option. It runs over $200 from my checking. You mount it in the sockets that are plugged currently, and the shade hooks into the built in hooks near the door. I have looked online, but not see any really good pricing for this accessory.

so far the only thing the alarm system does is lock the doors if you don't get in the car within about 30 seconds of unlocking it. What else does the alarm do? What sets it off?
That door locking thing is really annoying? Does anyone know if it can be reprogrammed not to do that?

CR released their annual top picks list today and the Santa Fe, along with the Elantra SE, made the list. That's a big honor for Hyundai.
CR names Santa Fe a "Top Pick" for 2008

In reguard to your question is there a dust problem, I live on a dirt road that is very dusty and I have had no problems with dust entering. I too experienced the sun roof being cracked open, It is easy to touch the button that activates it and you don`t realize it till you start feeing the draft.
I have owned a 2007 and a 2008 and both are excellent. My dealer has went way beyond in meeting all my needs, that is why I went back and got the 2008. They made me a deal just too good to pass up. One point of interest and too my surprise was my insurance premium dropped in half over my previous cars. Thanks Hyundai

You asked the right question(s). I had a defective air pressure monitor and found out to replace it would cost $35.00. I told the dealer to just put in a regular valve and I will check my tires.
Ehy is there a tire pressure sensor? Is it primarily to alert you to a tire with with the wrong pressure (usually, low) and second, of the possbility of a roll-over? If so, I asked myself, if I can detect a roll-over before I actually roll-over? The answer is "Yes." I would also think that my realization that a roll-over is about to happen would be much faster than my monitoring of dashboard lights and thus, take appropriate actions. In reference to a abnormal pressure in the tire. I normally check my tires due to the fact that all tires will leak (It just depends on the rate of the leak.). Thus, knowing that tires will leak, I check the tires and correct the air pressure at the time.
NOW, the real question: Do you really need to have a tire pressure monitoring system at all? When one considers the time spent on trying to find out why a monitor light is on in addition to getting the monitor fixed, if defective, the cost-benefit ratio is high i.e., high cost in resource time and replacement of monitor (typically, $35.00/monitor). Obviously, one has to take into consideration other factors such as, not wanting to check the tire pressure manually, the risk of roll-over if tire pressure is not checked, etc. However, if you check your tires on an appropriate basis, not only will you correct any air pressure problems found but also, it gives you the opportunity to look at each tire for abnormal wear, etc.

I am replacing my tires and some dealers are telling me to replace the V speed rated tires with H rated. Is that ok?

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but unless you are planning to drag-race your Santa Fe you should not need V speed rated tires!

if you are already used to driving on V-rated - you may feel a difference. The higher the speed rating the shorter the stopping distance and the better the cornering and of course the better they can handle high speed. you can also check www.tirerack.com to see what the original equipment was on that car...
