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.
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.

Hyundai Santa Fe Recalls
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.
Hyundai is recalling certain 2007 through 2009 Santa Fe models because the air bag system may not properly detect a smaller occupant in the passenger seat. Improper detection may cause the front passenger airbag not to deploy in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury to the front passenger. Dealers will update the occupant classification software to correct this concern. The Hyundai recall number is 105.
