Speaking of the Hyundai 2.0 Turbo, does anyone know whether the turbo is included in Hyundai's 100K drivetrain warranty? I just heard of a Kia horror story where the timing belt broke at 70K and parent Hyundai would not cover it as part of the 100K drivetrain warranty. seems like the timing belt and the turbo should be part of drivetrain. Any insight?
I am considering a 2013 Santa Fe bt if the turbo is not covered, I'll stay away.

It uses a timing chain rather than a belt. The turbo is covered under the powertrain warranty as well as the intercooler.
Found the turbo warranty in the manual. In Canada we only get 5 years 100,000KM on those.

I just purchased a 2013 Santa Fe Sport. The daytime running lights are not on, I asked the salesman and he said he didn't know - they should be on. He'll find out. Never did. Am I missing something? Don't see anything in the book. How do I get the DRLs on?

I'm not positive but I recall "intercooling" takes place after the turbo charger so no effect on turbo temp. Air gets compressed/ heated then cooled then to intake...as I recall from my Isuzu diesel turbo (not truly intercooled) days.

10 March 2013 :
Speaking of the V6, when are the 2013 Santa Fe 6-7 passenger, long-wheelbase models going to be available in U.S. showrooms? This seems more than a glitch in that Hyundai spent a ton of money advertising the 6-7 passenger model at the Super Bowl as well as the Oscars. Yet no vehicles at the dealerships!
I contacted Hyundai USA and got a non-answer about quality. I then contacted Hyundai Worldwide but have yet to receive a reply. I understand that these vehicles must be shipped from S. Korea, but are they even in the pipeline and when will they arrive here? Who knows.

When I bought my 2013 Santa Fe Sport in August 2012, my dealer told me they would be available in the summer of 2013.

10 March 2013 It does exist!!
Saw the LWB Santa Fe this afternoon at my Eugene OR dealership. Its the only LWB they have for sale. Vehicle's Iron Frost exterior and black leather interior appear to be high quality. Driver and second row (actually captain's chair) are very comfortable. Dashboard layout is similar to previous Santa Fe's. Full panoramic (moon?) roof is impressive. I did not drive the vehicle and the dealer is unsure of how many more they will be allocated or when they might arrive. MSRP on this fully equipped vehicle was $40,000.

I live in Coronado, California and saw a fleet, approximately 12,of LWB Santa Fe parked at the hotel Del Coronado. I was able to look at the cars but they were all locked up. It is suppose to be some kind of test drive for reviewers that will take place tomorrow. Getting any type of solid information at this point is impossible.
(if they told me they would have to kill me) I wish someone would put me up at the Hotel Del, wine and dine me, let me test drive and then review!
I hope to get some kind of ride tomorrow. I'll update if I do.
I currently own a 2002 with 180,000 miles and it has been flawless. I'm anxious to buy this one if it ever comes gets to the dealers.

I just got back from my dealer. They said only 1,400 are making it to the states this year with a 2-3 allotment per dealer. I don't know if that's initially or in total or how that would work. They really didn't know either - Hyundai is very tight-lipped about it.
They knew what they were getting (they are the largest dealer in North Tx with more than one place, so, they thought they'd be getting some others may not), but they didn't know colors. In 2 wks, they are planning on getting 2 limited and 1 other in - I get the first limited - hope it's worth it!
