Hyundai Santa Fe Problems
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.

Hyundai Santa Fe Recalls
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 front axles direct engine power to the front wheels. Vehicles equipped with a 2.4L engine are being recalled because the right front axle may break. This could result in loss of engine power to the wheels and the vehicle would no longer be able to move under it own power. 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.
The affected vehicles are being recalled because the brake light switch can fail prematurely, resulting in the loss of brake light operation. Other systems that may be affected include: cruise control, push-button start, gear shifter, and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system. Dealers will replace the brake light switch to correct this concern.
