Last week I managed to completely shock my parents and purchase a new vehicle – my first SUV – the Hyundai Sante Fe.
After nearly a week of driving the vehicle, I can say that I’m quite happy with it. It’s a “midsize” SUV so it’s not overly huge – gets reasonably good gas mileage, handles quite well, and has a decent sized cargo area. I’m still adapting to the fact that I sit up much higher than I did in my Civic Hybrid – but I do like the expanded view of the road and what’s ahead. And I imagine that it handles much better in the snow than what the Civic did.
And yes, I really did buy the one that was off the showroom floor. In fact, I got to drive it out of the showroom, which was quite fun.
