I too believe that the Santa-Fe is not for serious rough use.
Then again, I just completed Ooty-> Bangalore-> Hyderabad-> Pune-> Gandhinagar-> Gurgaon.

I leave for Chandigarh tomorrow with plans to go into Himachal some time this week.

The 2,900 Km journey was very comfortable. You can easily complete a 900Km journey during the day and then attend a function in the evening. On rough roads I did slow down. (Hyderabad-> Solapur and Chittorgarh-> Jaipur). Then again I am very finicky about my car!

Routine servicing in the first year cost me Rs 1,500 on consumables. Before I headed up north I got all filters and the engine oil changed on my account. It cost me Rs 9,800/-
The horn is acting up. (My dad loves sitting on the horn.) It will take the service centre 3 days to replace under warranty.

Most Hyundai service centres can attend to the Santa-Fe. From experience I can say that only few know the car thoroughly. This is generally one or two service centres in a city.

The Nexen tyres don’t have enough grip considering the power of the car. The best tyres for high speed grip are the Michelin Latitude Sport 3. Recently drove a 2016 Volvo XC60 which had these on as standard. These will definitely be my next set of tyres.
The last I checked, they were not readily available.

Quote:
Both the Santa Fe and the Santa Fe Sport received a subtle redesign which includes a brushed-appearance front grille, new LED daytime running lights, updated headlights and taillights, dual exhausts and a new rocker panel trim design with silver detailing among others.

Hyundai has also added a lot more tech into the package by introducing more infotainment options with the latest connectivity features and an array of safety systems like a Smart Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection and a set of adaptive lights with High Beam Assist.

Another new feature is the Drive Mode selection which offers three settings, Sport-Eco-Normal. Hyundai continues to offer the Santa Fe range in front- and all-wheel drive versions while the powertrain line-up remains as is, including a 185hp 2.4-litre and a turbocharged 245hp 2.0-litre petrol engine for the Sport, with the seven-seater Santa Fe using a 290hp 3.3-litre V6. All models are fitted with a six-speed automatic gearbox.

The new Hyundai Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport continues to offer a long list of standard equipment which includes a Rearview Camera, automatic on/off headlights, remote keyless entry with alarm, bodycolor heated exterior power mirrors with driver’s blind spot mirror, LED headlight accents, daytime running lights, steering-wheel-mounted audio and cruise control and Bluetooth hands-free smartphone system.

Hyundai also offers as an option their new Blue Link suite of connected safety and diagnostic features as well as the latest gadgetry meaning a Remote Start with Climate Control, Stolen Vehicle Recovery and Remote Door Lock/Unlock.

Can any owner of Santa fe give me detailed Service cost figures for 10,000, 20,000 and 30,000 km? My friend is looking to buy a Santa fe or a fortuner, but is confused regarding the service cost of both, as Toyota has lesser maintenance cost? Is it really true?

Hi shravan2k2, as I am not in the country, I can’t give you exact figures.
If I ask my wife to pull out all the service records from the car, I won't hear the end of it.
I was hoping other owners would reply to your post. I shall give you my impression of the car so far.

First service at 2000Km was free.
At the 10,000Km servicing, got all the oils changed. This cost about Rs 2000.
At 17,000 Km before leaving Ooty for my trip to Delhi and back, I had all consumables changed. This includes air filter, fuel filter, Oil filter and all the Oils. This cost me Rs 9,800 (including labour). I got it done outside the free service cycle. It is probably the maximum bill you can get with all consumables changed.
As of 27,000 Km, my brakes have about 40% life still in them. I have an AWD automatic, which is mostly used for highway trips.

Here in Hyderabad the Talwar service centre has been very helpful. They have changed the horns on warranty as one of them stopped working a few months back.
The additional servicing at 17,000Km was done in Ooty with all parts shipped in from Coimbatore. They even allowed us to watch the entire process in their shed.
In Gurgaon, I had taken the car to the service centre in Sector 56. I was concerned about the engine oil being near the low level. The service representative just checked the car outside the gate and assured me the level is fine for the long trip. He advised to pick up a Rs 200 bottle of engine oil and keep it in the boot, just so I am not worried on the highway. This was really appreciated as he could have made up a job order and could have easily extracted a few thousand rupees out of me.

The mileage I have got on highway is about 14 Km/L. I believe this is very good considering I often push the engine hard on the highway.
In the city, I usually have the Eco mode on and get about 11 Km/L.

For one, Genuine Accessories are sold only at dealerships, since they are "genuine", which in itself is a sham.

The best option these days is to order what you need online using Ali Express. Most of the items are decent in quality and shipping is efficient as well.

Since the Santa Fe is not a volume seller in India, you are not likely to get a lot of stuff at physical stores at Bangalore.

Certainly possible to get "something" from the dealerships. You could, in fact go shopping at multiple dealerships too.

For starters, try the newly opened Pavan Hyundai on Kanakapura Road. They are new and nice. There is also Advaith on Residency Road which is owned by a close friend and they are amongst the biggest in India. A day's shopping should throw up something.

With so many people from Bangalore owning the Santa Fe, am very tempted to ask if any of you are planning to sell the 2014 / 2015 model? I am looking for a replacement to my 2010 crv

Souped-Up Hyundai Santa Fe Drives Across Antarctica

Quote:
A team of adventurers have become the very first to cross Antarctica in a passenger car. The weapon of choice? A modified Hyundai Santa Fe.

Among the adventurers was the great-grandson of polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton and while the Santa Fe may not be considered as the most rugged vehicle currently on sale, it managed to conquer the Antarctic continent with just a handful of modifications.

The Santa Fe used was customized by expedition leader Gísli Jónsson and outfitted with huge, low pressure tires, new front and rear sub-frames, upgraded suspension components and gears installed inside the wheel hubs. The 2.2-litre diesel powertrain remained stock.

Throughout the treacherous journey, the team had to cross the Ross Ice Shelf. This huge glacier lies beyond the continental land mass, is hundreds of feet deep and is filled with deep, hard-to-see fissures. The Hyundai became the first passenger vehicle to drive across the glacier and was tethered to three support trucks in case one of them fell into the abyss.

Speaking about the journey, Jónsson said “From previous experience, we were expecting more trouble. It was a really good team, a very good bunch of people and the expedition was exceptionally well prepared. Do that and you prevent the drama. The longest repair stop we had was 45 minutes because of a loose bolt!

“A lot of people thought we would never ever make it and when we returned they were shaking our hands kind of thing – they just couldn’t believe we’d actually done it!” he said.
