    Just noticed that 2005 Santa Fe has problems in passing the recent
    NHTSA Rollover test (Tip). see "NHTSA 2005 SUV Crash, Rollover Ratings

    Based on this, ConsumersReports.org has the below for Santa Fe:
    "We no longer recommend the Santa Fe because of tip-ups in the
    government rollover tests."
    --"<http://autos.msn.com/research/vip/r...model=Santa Fe&trimid=-1&src=VIP&tab=4&sub=0>

    Guess that maybe the reason of the sharp drop of Sales of Santa Fe in
    the past 2 months?

    What is the real world experience in over-steering of Santa Fe? Would
    ABS/TCS help?

    Wondering has anyone heard/known what was the reaction/follow-up by
    Hyundai in this regard?

    Hyundai expects to be releasing a redesigned larger Santa Fe in the future.

    Interesting, especially if one considers the rising price of gasoline
    and the new cafe standards. ;-)
