"At this price point, the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport lines up directly with segment leaders like the Ford Escape and Honda CR-V. The former also offers a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, while the latter simply does everything well. The newer, cleverer 2013 Santa Fe measures up favorably to both. If it can deliver on its excellent mileage numbers and remain as quiet as it did on the roads of rural Utah, this Santa Fe could be yet another well-executed piece of Hyundai's grand plan to compete head on with its foreign and domestic rivals."

I"m on the same page with you
Bundles package is kind drip off ideas in my opinion. I think as customers we only have two options. Either You add popular package with leather & premium or just a popular package by itself. Last night I finally sat in the loaded Santa Fe and the sunroof was the best. It's a lot nicer than Nissan Murano sunroof

I have had my car for about a month. I am very pleased with the handling. The gas mileage has ranged from around 23 to 29 so far. I am very happy overall with my car. I do have one minor issue with the brightness of the headlights. Even when on dim, I am constantly getting flashes from oncoming traffic because they are extremely bright. This is not something that you check out when looking at a car and it would not be a deal-breaker. I wonder if Hyundia has had other complaints about this. Otherwise, love this car. Lots of power, even for my finicky hubby!
#45 of 104 2013 TRANSMISSION CHANGED ?

Anyone tried a new 2013 Sante Fe that owns a 2010-2012 model ? Need to know if the 6 Speed Tranny is still as primitive as the last version . Read somewhere that they are now being made "In House" rather than farmed out.
Considering dumping my 2010 Limited but only if the Tranny has improved.
Any Feedback would be appreciated .
Guess I'll have to eventually take a Test Drive.

Perhaps the low beam lights just need to be adjusted to aim down a little more. Mention your problem to the dealer and ask them to check them.

I am thinking of the Santa Fe Sport 2013. I like the small CUVs, and I like the looks of the Santa Fe Sport. I now drive a 2011 Sonata 2.4, Ltd. The one complaint that I have had about this car is the fact that it is noisy, on the highway. I blame it on tires. No help from the dealer, not even sympathy, nor from the Kumho tire dealer. So, now, am I going to be facing the same noisy problem with this 2013 Santa Fe? I have not ridden in one, yet. Or, am I a fool for even considering another Hyundai, after my dealer's lack of support?
#49 of 104 Purchased Santa Fe 2013

I just purchased a FWD eventhough I live in MN. I think with these all season tires I'll be fine. Few things I'm not quite satisfied with the veh and people at the dealership where I bought my car at. The very next day I noticed some small scratches on the hood near the headlights and also two dry black paint lines running from upper windshield. My bad I didn't inspect the vehicle thoroughly. The person who did the delivery inspection failed to do his/her part as well. They promised to fix those areas. So learn my lesson don't pick up your veh late a nights because you can't see the exterior very well.
The veh is loaded and I'm very suprised and disappointed the cargo screen didn't come with. At the different local dealership that I did test drive twice has exact same features as my veh and cargo screen would come with it.
Over all I love the veh very much, sun/moon roof is my favorite.
Good luck to those that looking or tempting to buy santa fe,,highly recommended

The cargo screen apparently was discontinued almost 2 years ago. Though you can probably still buy one online - I did earlier this year.

PS I order it from Parts.com. Search the Hyundai accessory catalog for "cargo cover" be careful what color you are ordering, they come in beige or black only.
