Hyundai Santa Fe 2016

The 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe range of configurations is currently priced from $19,990. Our most recent review of the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe resulted in a score of 7 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Richard Blackburn had this to say at the time: The diesel Santa Fe is a CarsGuide favourite and would still be our pick. However, the V6 is an attractive, well priced alternative for those who can't yet wean themselves off six-cylinder petrol power.

This is what Richard Blackburn liked most about this particular version of the Hyundai Santa Fe: Great throttle response., Solid steering and suspension., Transmission has a sportier feel to it.

The 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe carries a braked towing capacity of up to 2500 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

Hyundai Santa Fe 2016 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Hyundai Santa Fe 2016 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • My Hyundai Santa Fe lurches in Drive

    They have to drain the pan and drain the transmission to fix the faulty solenoid, so they’ll have to refill it with new fluid and use a new gasket. If the solenoid wasn’t faulty there would be no need to drain the pan or replace the gasket, so I think you have a good claim to be covered for the whole cost of the repair, including the new oil and gasket.

    You should approach the dealer in the first instance, and then Hyundai directly if that fails to produce a satisfactory resolution.

  • Problems with a 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe?

    It is obviously frustrating you, and it would be nice to think that you wouldn’t have these problems with a new car, and that the dealer would give you better service. They don’t seem to be major problems, more annoying than anything else, and should be easily fixed. The good thing is that the car is still under warranty and the dealer appears to be attempting to fix the problems. If you are concerned about it ask the dealer for an appointment to go through the problems, what he is doing about them, and when he might be finished. You could also request that a representative of Hyundai be there at the same time.

  • What's the longevity of Brembo brakes?

    It is very low kays for the brakes to be wearing out, but Brembo brakes are performance-oriented brakes and you would expect them to wear out faster than regular brakes. I would consult a brake specialist for an opinion.

  • Are there any known problems with the 2016 Santa Fe brakes?

    We haven’t heard of a problem with the brakes, but to need new rotors and pads at 15,000 km is ridiculous. Take it to your dealer and ask them to consult Hyundai to get an explanation. Although brakes are not covered by the warranty I would be asking for the company to replace the rotors and pads at no expense to you, and to justify why they needed replacing at such low kilometres.
