    Hyundai sent me a post card to test drive the 2004 Sante Fe & compate
    it to my 2002 for $50. Other than side air bags, I see no difference.
    Then the Manager has me take him for a ride & he is telling me some
    very interesting tidbits about the 2006 Sante Fe that will seat 8 - 3
    tier seating & available in V6 only. The 2005 Tucson will become the
    Sante Fe as we know it but with no carpeting! It will be available in
    5 speed, auto, V6 or 4 cyl. It will be a hybrid model for fleet only
    but hopefully by 2006 with the new Sante Fe that is rumored to be the
    Kia Sodona presently. The Tucson will be sold as a Kia also but I
    forget the name. So a hybrid by the time I am ready to trade for one
    in 2006-2007. I am told they are revamping the recharging battery via
    the engine's alternator, as the Honda has, that needs a freeway ride
    of 15 minutes daily. They want theirs to recharge itself maybe solar
    or something weird.

    So by September, Step one of what I was told will be in effect
    (Tucson) & watch Hyundai's Kia also for what changes are there also.
