    Hi All,

    I have a 2003 Santa Fe 2.7 GLS which is getting a bit long in the tooth so am considering an upgrade. The car that ticks my boxes for towing capacity and economy are the second gen (2007-2012) Santa Fe.I'll be looking at a Limited model but I have been told to stay away from 2010 onwards models and get a 2008 or 2009 with the 3.3 engine. This is because the 2010 onwards models have issues with the 3.5 litre engine. Also, the AWD models have regular rear AWD coupling failures. Can people give me their opinions on this? Thanks.
