Asked by d1234 Oct 30, 2013 at 10:27 AM about the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS FWD

Question type: Car Customization

Just bought a 2013 Hyundai Sante Fe with their "MOST POPULAR UP GRADE"  i.e., heated seats etc. There is no up or down adjustment to the passenger side front seat; just back and forth and seat back tilt. The seat is mounted so low you cannot see the hood of the car and feel like a little kid peaking over the bottom of the door window....I'm 6 feet tall.

Called salesman at dealership. There are NO, "UP /DOWN adjustments for front passenger seat for Sante Fe S or SE, or with their most popular equipment package (with heated seats) - until you get to "powered passenger seat upgrade" in LIMITED or Leather & Navigation packages.....tough luck....Saturday night SURPRISE!....

I sympathize with all Hyundai owners who have vehicles with no height addjustment for the front passenger seat. Have had 2 Sonatas in family so i write from experience. Several years ago i wrote to Hyundai about this problem. No results. Even the 2021 Sonata Limited has no height adjustment on passenger seat. Very sad for such a nice car. I am reminded of the article i read in a Car Publication where a lady told her husband regarding riding in their Hyundai " if i can't be the driver, i am not riding with you because i am not riding in that hole ". I have a 2016 Hyundai Azera Limited with all the Bells and Whistles and am ready for the same in a 2021 model, but the "fools" at Hyundai ceased bringing this wonderful car to North America. Remember i said "fools". Same term applies to the problem of no height adjustment on both driver and passenger seats of all vehicles.

Can I purchase the seat or hardware & have it installed
