2002 Hyundai Santa Fe Owner Comments

problem #2

Jul 252016

Santa Fe 2.7L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 152,000 miles


It's absolutely disgusting. The hood, roof and sides of my vehicle look as if they were half sanded and then just decided to say ehhh f*ck it lets, just leave and see what the end result could be. I've seen so many vehicles identical to mine, color, year, make and model and even others that aren't the same color but same year a model. They look like sh*t, looks like a half assed paint job that a sorry ass redneck did in his tin can shop behind his trailer in the trailer park after having a few too many Budweisers. This is absolutely insane, Hyundai uses a different type of chemical compound when painting their vehicles and the end result is the exact same on all of the vehicles, they look like SH*T.

Santa Fe LS 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles

I can't understand why the paint on this vehicle has peeled on the left door and has erosion on the right rear well. I take good care of my vehicles and this is ridiculous. Hyundai had not sent me this recall, I just happened to see it on their site when browsing for recalls on my vehicles.
