2013 Hyundai Santa Fe ProblemsRough Idle Due to Faulty EGR Switching Valve
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.
Hyundai Santa Fe models equipped with navigation units may suddenly stop playing audio from all speakers. This includes sound from CD players, radio, navigation, satellite radio, and telephone calls. All other features may still function properly.
This fault requires no part replacement, and is a software glitch that can be rectified by a 'hard reset'.
To perform the hard reset, simply disconnect the vehicles negative battery terminal, wait 15 minutes, and reconnect the negative battery terminal.

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe RecallsLoss of Engine Power to the Wheels

Also, if the parking brake is not applied when the vehicle is parked it could roll unexpectedly. Both of these conditions increases the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the affected axle shaft assembly to correct this concern.
