Made my first ever new vehicle purchase. My 13 Santa Fe Sport was going to be in need of about $5,000 in repairs after finding excessive shaft play in the turbo. I decided it is time to move on from it, no sense bailing water out of a sinking ship.
I’ve been looking at a mid-size pickup for some time now. Test drove the Colorado and Ranger but just wasn’t sold on them. Not a long enough track record with reliability as the Taco, and the build quality was absolutely horrendous in the American challengers.
For those that I’m sure will ask
Sticker was $38,999, OTD price was $40,600
TRD Off Road trim level, V6, 4x4
No additional options except factory mudflaps
And I love it so far
