A/C stops cooling when car reaches any speed higher than 65. When I slow down or stop (without turning A/C or engine off), A/C starts cooling again.
I turned on my AC and it works great in High Speed. On the lower speeds I have to hold it or wiggle the switch around to get it to work. Once I let go it stops again. but only on the lower selections.

THANKS
In one year it's happened 3 times
I got this Sante Fe 2005 a couple years ago. Considering this is a SUV, that I would never have, I really like it.
Twice now, I have had the passenger seat nylon pull tab get under the seat because the original holder loop is missing. I can feel the bar and just barely touch the pull tab, but it must be caught some place. How do I get that seat 'up' so I can use the cargo space? I managed somehow, the first time, to trigger the release, can't seem to now. Can't believe my fingers got shorter when I lost weight.
I just bought my 2005 Santa Fe 3.5 V6 2 wheel drive and the guy I bought it from (he buys cars at auctions and fixes and sells them) said his mechanic put a shift kit in and said should have a tune up. I asked my mechanic and he said a tune up is going to cost close to $1K. You have got to be kidding me???
Took 2005 Santa Fe, 151,000 miles, in for timing belt replacement, water pump and serpentine belt and, A/C compressor replacement, $2,454.00. Mechanic broke motor mount and expects me to paid for this too. Is this normal/expected?
Recently my door locks have been malfunctioning... When the lock button on the drivers door is pushed it makes a clicking sound as if it wanted to lock but none of the doors are locking. Also the same thing occurs when the remote lock is used.



Slight hesitation at stops, but not every time. No engine light.
Happens only occasionally. Just this week check engine light came on with code PO711.
