A fender flare kit similar to the look on this Audi that can be color matched to the SC would be nice.
I’m just hoping for a nudge bar some day in the future, but a winch? Never. There isn’t even a recovery point on the SC.Is the winch bumper and door steps actually available?
A nudge bar would be great. Ive seen a few rav 4 lately with them. Even the Taurus/ fusion cars get them. Might at least avoid some front end damage from deer. What would it do to warranty though. It definitely affects leveling and has the potential to affect air bag function. Does the uptrim Cruz come with leveling headlights like most new trucks? Mine has the bad base lights so idk. Hyundai (along with subaru VW and a couple others) are pretty quick to void warranty. Ford/ GM/Mopar are much more lenient. I suppose 70 years of trucks, Mustang, Camaro, and Charger/Challenger being hacked up by their owners has left a mark. None are left stock. The first thing hyundai/ kia likes to boast is their warranty. But the first thing many people do is poke holes in it. The vehicle pictured definitely would be voidI’m just hoping for a nudge bar some day in the future, but a winch? Never. There isn’t even a recovery point on the SC.
It drives like a luxury car due to being a unibody design, but that very detail prevents it from competing with mainstream traditional trucks in the off road department. However it is this very detail that caused me to buy it. It is quiet, agile and perfect for someone like me that needs the utility, but never goes off road.
Love mine but I'm 6' 225lb and find it just a little cramped. Actually bought some pads and installed on the center console to help with the uncomfortable pressure of my knee pressing against it. Otherwise nothing bad to say!!!!Greetings Folks,
My name is Walt, and I just joined the forum today (Thursday July 7th, 2022).
I live in central South Carolina, and learned about the existence of the Hyundai Santa Cruz.
I have to say, the design , form and function s of this beautiful vehicle, is catching Hyundai's competition entirely off guard!
I am impressed more every time I see this guilded coach from a different angle!
So, are their any owners that have either praise or criticism about this new model?
Is the winch bumper and door steps actually available?
I may buy a Santa Cruz this weekend, unless you folks suggest otherwise.
Thanks for your time and input!
Well < I have settled on the Hampton grey , it was a struggle finding all the colors and that stone blue was just to light.
But I want some color , so I think I am going to have the Door Garnish Painted a nice blue , and May add the Pin stripes i made on my firs attempt with PS . Just about any color you add to the Hampton Gray is going to POP .
I did make a few different ones : Let me know what you think ?
I tried to keep in minimal , The door Garnish is a Santa Cruz Accessory that can be easily painted..
Black has my vote, looks awesome!
