We have updated results for the Santa Fe to include owner experiences through September 30, 2010. Other sources of car reliability information won't cover the months since April until the summer or even fall of next year.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2009: 35, better than average

2008: 67, about average

2007: 74, about average

2004: 119, about average, very small sample size

2003: 63, better than average, very small sample size

We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds," to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop.

The percentage with no repairs is about 56 for the 2007 and 67 for the 2008, while the percentage of lemons is about 3 for the 2007 and about 9 for the 2008.

We'll have further updates in February and May. With more participants, we could provide more precise information and cover all model years.

We have some new pages that display all reported repairs by problem area:

2007 Hyundai Santa Fe problem reports

From this page it's possible to select a different model year or specify a problem area.

We have updated results for the Santa Fe to include owner experiences through December 31, 2010. Other sources of car reliability information won't cover the months since last April until the summer or even fall of this year.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2010: 45, about average

2009: 32, better than average

2008: 75, about average

2007: 67, about average

2004: 100, about average, small sample size

2003: 95, about average, very small sample size

We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds," to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop.

The percentage with no repairs is about 66 for the 2007 and 67 for the 2008, while the percentage of lemons is less than one for the 2007 and about 11 for the 2008 (which is based on a smaller sample size).
