2008 Hyundai Santa Fe 135,000 miles for $4500?


Topic starter

Hi Scotty,

what do you think about buying a 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe for 4,500 and with 135000? 

What are your thoughts?

How many years and mileage do you need it to last you for?

I wouldn't touch it. Certainly not if you need 10 years out of it.


At this age and mileage, it is already on its last legs.

10 year

So you need it to last you 10 years with how much additional mileage beyond 135,000? If you plan to put 1,000 miles a year for the next 10 years, that is one thing. But if you plan to put on several thousand miles a year (say 10,000 miles a year for the next 10 years) then I view that as a big gamble especially if the vehicle was not well taken care of by a previous owner and I would look elsewhere.


I would not touch a Hyundai

What some Affordable SUVs or cars that’s under $4000 that you will buy?

same answer as I gave you here unfortunately.

Sorry you are right !! Thanks !!!!

Don't even think about buying that. Way too much money for a 13-year-old Hyundai SUV. It's most likely on its last legs.


That's too much, look elsewhere. Maybe mid 2000s Highlander but I don't know if it will last another decade.
