Hyundai Problems

Engine -- Verified

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

Drive Train -- Verified

If the automatic transmission does not shift properly and the Check Engine Light illuminates, the speed sensors in the transmission may have failed. The sensors are simple and inexpensive to replace.

Engine -- Verified

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.

Engine -- Verified

If you experience excessive engine noise on startup (after the engine has been turned off for several hours) that lasts for more than five or six seconds, turn off the engine and check that the engine oil level is correct. If the oil level is correct, the noise may be caused by the timing chain tensioner. Hyundai has an improved tensioner to correct this problem.

Drive Train -- Verified

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.

Hyundai Owners' Reviews

installed new purge valve sensor. Check engine light is still on. will it reset its self?

I bought my 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited new in November of 2009. Other than the two recalls I have only had to have it serviced once (covered by 5 year 60,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty), granted the repair was minor, just replacing the gasket that attaches the rear wiper to the window due to it prematurely rusting (I think it was at 10,000 miles or so). I did replace the brake pads myself after 15,000 miles as factory pads were squeaking something awful in all weather conditions, the replacement pads still have good wear even though I live in Chicago & am in stop & go traffic constantly. I too have experienced the vibration effect from the back windows when traveling at higher speeds, it is unfortunate. Also, the cabin filter in the limited model is pricey & a pain to get to behind the glove box. All in all I have been very pleased with the performance & overall bang for my buck that I got with this vehicle, I would definitely purchase another Hyundai in the future based on my experience.

I also have had the same issue with the coil packs/ignition coil. Have had to replace now going on the 3rd time and of course no warranty. Also the Fort Wayne Hyundai Happy Car Store Service Department is a horrible place to go, I will not buy another one.

I just get the car and I am having some problem

A/C is so loud you can't hear anything when on high. Interior is mostly some sort of cheap imitation rubber/plastic. Cushion for seats are terrible. Keeping aligned is impossible always pulling to one side. Extremely rough ride. Noisy interior from road noise. Do like the option of electronic shift and great gas mileage.sound system sucks. BT horrible at listening or identifying speech and names from address book . Give it a overall rating of 2.7 if that exists.
