Ownership Review of the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe SE 3.3L V6

Car Displayed: 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe SE 3.3L V6

The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe SE is a relatively easy vehicle to maintain. Some of the headlights are accessible by reaching behind the bulb housing and removing some simple covers, allowing for reliable bulb changes. Connecting your phone to the vehicle via Bluetooth won’t be a problem as the touchscreen menu makes for a hassle-free procedure. Both the interior and engine fuse boxes are quick to access, and the latter comes provided with a fuse puller for your convenience.

However, the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe SE has some downsides. Some of the other headlights will require tools to be accessed on the driver side, which won’t make for reliable bulb changes. Multiple tools will be necessary to remove a large panel from underneath the vehicle for access to the petcock. The spare tire is also underneath the vehicle, which can create a problem if it rusts to the undercarriage.
