Unusual Manual Sighting: 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS

I know what you are thinking.  The guys at DT have found the Christmas rum cake storage and eaten at entire box.  Ok...that might be true...but you've got to hang on and take a second look at this tippy low budget small SUV crossover thing from a South Korean automaker.  I never thought those words would escape these fingers...but I just wrote ' you've got a read 'em...and hopefully not weep.  Here is the deal...this car has a 5-speed manual gearbox in the most unlikely of places...right betwix the driver and passenger. Find this 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS offered for $3750 in Phoenix, AZ via craigslist.

  1. Nice find 4 the money like it !

  2. "highway miles", can't make that up.

    Snark aside, it actually looks like a reasonable buy.

    1. At least they're not saying "Original miles." I want to tell someone selling a car with that promise that it's obvious he's been using cheap knock-off miles from Harbor Freight. But the mileage is in about "What would you expect for a sub-$4000 SUV?" territory, and not high enough that I'd be scared.

      Still, an interesting find in that I never thought Hyundai ever offered a stick shift Santa Fe.

  3. I do not know what to say really what you share very well and useful to the community, I feel that it makes our community much more developed, thanks
