2005 Hyundai Santa Fe ProblemsEngine Performance Problems Due to Crankshaft Position Sensor Failure
The crankshaft position sensor may fail, causing engine stalling or a failure to start. Replacement or the failed sensor will commonly correct this problem.
Prior to replacing the automatic transmission fluid (to improve shift quality), make sure that the transmission fluid level is correct. Also, make sure the computer that controls the transmission has the most up-to-date adaptive programming information. When servicing these transmissions be sure to use fluid approved by Hyundai.
On the 2.7L V6 and 2.4L 4 Cylinder, a defective exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) switching valve may cause an intermittent rough or unstable idle engine.

2005 Hyundai Santa Fe RecallsFront Coil Springs May Break Due To Corrosion
The front coil springs may corrode and break, which can result in front tire damage and loss of vehicle control. This is most likely in areas where road salt is used. Dealers will inspect and replace affected coil springs as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
The occupant classification system (OCS) may detect a small child on the front edge of the front seat as an adult. If the passenger front air bag deploys in a crash, serious injury or death could occur. Dealers will verify the vehicle's OCS properly classifies a passenger front seat occupant properly and disable the air bags when necessary. Dealers will also reprogram the vehicle's OCS ECU to provide an increased margin for recognition of small children.
