The crankshaft position sensor may fail, causing engine stalling or a failure to start. Replacement or the failed sensor will commonly correct this problem.

The timing belt can fail prematurely; if it fails while driving, it can cause catastrophic damage to the engine. Be sure that the timing belt is inspected and replaced according to the manufacturer's recommended schedule.

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.

2006 Hyundai Santa Fe Reviews

Its a good car for work and travel.

This car has been very reliable and essentially maintenance free for the last 4.5 years we have had the vehicle (~65,000 miles). I would suggest running a better Michelin tire on the vehicle.
