Dear experts,

My friend is looking at buying pre-owned Hyundai Santa Fe 2016 with 50K running. Its 2WD AT model with first owner.He wanted to know the approx. service cost for next 50K - 1 lakh KM running and the intervals.

Major issue reported for the model which need to keep in mind while inspecting Santa Fe. Also he saw few posts related to inconsistent steering feel. Did Hyundai provided any fix for steering issue like software upgrade etc.

Any thoughts on a reasonable price range for such a model of 3 year/50K drive Santa Fe would be highly appreciated.
He will be test driving car tomorrow evening so any quick advise/suggestion will be really helpful.

Thanks
Vinod

I will be tracking this thread. I was looking for an automatic soft-roader and was evaluating XUV500 and the upcoming Tata Harrier. Since it is clear that the AWD AT variant of Harrier is not in the sight (and I decided against XUV500), I want to consider pre-owned Santa Fe (AWD). Other than the negatives like vague steering feel, bouncy rear seat, low ground clearance, claustrophobic cabin, missing luxury features (Sat nav, sunroof...) are there any issues to be considered? Are there known reliability issues which are expensive to fix?
What would be a expected price for a 2015/16 4WD example with 25000-35000 K on the odo in Bangalore? I see 25 lakhs kind of prices quoted by dealers on used car portals.
I also want to find out if Sante Fe shares any mechanical parts with Tuscon.

Hyundai never got back to me with my question on the steering problem. I therefore did not pursue the Santa Fe anymore and went in for a Fortuner.
When you friend drives the vehicle, please ask him to pay special attention to the steering - all the vehicles (one was my friends and the other was the test drive vehicle) I have driven had the wheel pulling slightly to the left.

Congratulations! Please put up your impressions and the maintenance the car had to undergo after you took the possession.

Im astonished by this. I have a 2018 Tucson 4wd having similar problems. Hyundai, to their credit, has done multiple things to fix it, including shipping a new tie rod from Korea(this being a CBU). The problem was fixed for a while , albeit inconsistently. Now its back and I'm wondering if I should change the car itself considering the safety issue.

The problem to be clear is that I have the vehicle moving to the left when the steering is at the neutral position. I have to constantly put a slight pressure to the right to keep the car in lane.

I doubt it's a manufacturing issue. Haven't read about it but my old santa fe had this and the alignment and balancing didn't help, but my tyres were old and ever since i put in new ones the issue was resolved immediately.
