Hyundai Santa Fe 2001: Is it good for touring?

Answered by CarsGuide 17 Oct 2008

IT SEEMS you've bought a well-maintained car in good condition -- a great start. It's impossible to say nothing will go wrong with it, but the Santa Fe is a generally reliable and robust car so the chances are minimal. I strongly recommend you have it serviced.

Hyundai Santa Fe 2001: Flywheel not compatible with clutch

Answered by CarsGuide 9 Mar 2007

ABSOLUTELY yes. Take it up with Hyundai directly. It seems you have been given the run-around by the dealer and the company needs to know. The clutch would probably need to be replaced when the flywheel was changed as they are most likely to be different, but Hyundai should cop the cost. It sounds like a design problem. And it could be a cause of your belt failures and your ignition problems.
