You are correct IMHO..but the Rogue looks pretty nice (Kind of like a baby Santa from the outside) but expensive for what you get. It would have been fine for me since i am single but I like my 07 Santa Fe SE Except for the poor in town gas mileage! You just get so much more for your Money.

everything will be expensive for what you get when compared to a Hyundai. Well, except maybe kia.

Of course the Hyundai gives you more for the $$$ , but Rogues are outrageous here in Reno and EVERY option except the air you breath.....Hopefully the hyundai holds up. Right now, nothing is selling except Hummers, Mercedes, BMW's etc. The rest of the real middle class is not buying and the car dealers are getting killed. No sympathy from here!
I have reached the point of Not wanting any more new cars. They are too loaded with things I never want. The exceptios for me are a decent radio, full air bags and the Stability control.
Hyundai's deal is in the packaging where you have to buy stuff you never will need to get a single thing that you want (they are all doing that too)
If the hyundai does not hold up, I will be looking for something from maybe 2005-2006....To hell with the gov't mandates and the manufacturers!
I still like the Hyundai but am a bit Leary about how durable they really are. Mine has been fine since last Feb...I am still a low mileage driver though. In Nevada (the desert) we have no rust so i do not have to think about that and my Se only has the touring Pkg...so.....I am hoping It is a good one and I can enjoy it for say 5+ years. I used to buy a new auto every 2-3 yrs but no more....The more garbage they put in, the worse your odds are IMHO! !

I am currently looking at the Outlander and the Rogue. What made you eliminate the Outlander?

Wasn't very comfortable, and gets the same MPGs as the SantaFe (theoretically anyway)...yet the SantaFe has more power. Also, the Outlander's fuel tank is kinda small....I'd be filling up 3 times a week.
Just couldn't get the driver-seat/steering-wheel/gearshift relationship set up right...something was always either too close or too far away. Same thing with the Tuscon (the Sportage didn't have this problem, but there's no Kia dealers around here anymore).
Really a shame, because I like the Outlander's features. I might give sitting in one another shot, since I know that particular dealer doesn't get a lot of business, and may really want to move one.

i think for the same features the awd 3.3 limited santa fe had - the outlander's price was outlandish...
the outlander engine was kind of loud too..
#15 of 15 go Hyundai

Given my experience, go Hyundai. Wish I did. Bought our Rogue in 2010. Had our transmission replaced in August of 2010 with about 3,000 miles on it. now, 10000 miles later, not even a full year, we're sitting in the same place, but them having to change out the valve body instead. this shouldn't be happening to a new car....and so many of them...if you read other posts in this forum. Good luck and hope you made the right decision!!
