I have seen the April issue of the Today SUV magazine in Chapters last nite, I've almost finish reading the whole magazine, today I went back want to get my copy but guess what?.... All copies gone in one day! I Can't believe it!
What I remembered was the SF project pictures in SEMA show Las Vegas was unbelievable great, I love it so much than any of the SUV pictures I ever seen, no wonder why the SF special project had the most attention among the 6 different 2001 new SUV's in SEMA show.
Here is the link to see the SF picture in the SEMA show, I browse through all pics in
But the SF I like is not there, only can see its side in one pic
The Pewter SF on the right hand side is the one I mentioned! It show on Today SUV magazine in & out!
It show on Today SUV magazine in & out!

I'm so proud that I had bought this "Angry Pikachu"(I like this name so much, heard the name from ateixeira, Thks ateixeira for this wonderful name! (ateixeira enjoys his Subaru so much than the SF))
The audio & the video features inside the show project SF projects is unbelievable expensive & top of the line. It means the guys convert the SF think SF can be one of the most luxury SUV despite of its cheap window price.
Today SUV also has a 2001 new SUV's test, the Santa Fe test results is better than other magazine's test results. (Quite interesting find out SF accelerates faster than the new Rav4! But still heard people count on the acceleration of SF? For my delivery SF now already 11000km, on road everyday, still no problems, very adequate acceleration on city & highway, I find out my full load SF handling improves on wet & snow day especially on corning)
Talking about reliability, I don't know why I suddenly met a lot of old Pony & Excel (15 to 18 years old... maybe.) on Vancouver's road. Had taken pictures to prove, will post later! (My brother in law 2nd hand Excel still performs very well after he bought it 5 years ago, he is the one I consulted him about the reliability of Hyundai's car before I made my decision to go for SF.)
Those cheap people whose had ruined directly or indirectly these cheap Hyundai's toys should be reasonably be fair to Hyundai's don't go too far about their compaints (Be understand the meaning of "U paid what U get" in the past. Consider how much U pay for SF & XG300, forget about the non-sense unreliability term those non-sense people apply on these 2 beautifully made cars.
Remember! Every proven reliability & safety & high performance will make car price go up, it is a universal rule, unless the car had no demand on it or the auto makers do not want to make more profit otherwise.
I believe Gasoline engine days is about to end within this 10 years. Don't rely on your expensive powerful engine too much, think about the high tech future, save some $$$ for your future electric car, the gasoline engine will definitely go to the museum like the Typewriter(VS the computer) do.
Thanks for reading my long .....long post.
The 2002 Forester is on the way, earlier than expected:
No big changes - they made the cargo cover standard and added DRLs, with no price increase. Freight is up $30 but that's it. Also, leather is now offered on the S Premium, which will make a lot of people happy.
The flat price is pretty amazing. It really has not gone up since it came out in 1998. The 2002 is only $330 more than the original 4 years ago, with a lot more standard equipment. That doesn't even account for inflation, so the actual cost is way down.
It could be pressure from increased competition. Thanks, Hyundai!
Why u want your car safe while other don't?http://www.members.home.net/g7florist/sf/DCP00332.jpgPS: I'm not saying Hyundai is good but at least not so Junk!!! Bill
