My Hyundai Santa Fe lurches in Drive

Answered by CarsGuide 20 Jul 2018

They have to drain the pan and drain the transmission to fix the faulty solenoid, so they’ll have to refill it with new fluid and use a new gasket. If the solenoid wasn’t faulty there would be no need to drain the pan or replace the gasket, so I think you have a good claim to be covered for the whole cost of the repair, including the new oil and gasket.

You should approach the dealer in the first instance, and then Hyundai directly if that fails to produce a satisfactory resolution.

Hyundai Santa Fe 2016: Multiple problems?

Answered by CarsGuide 16 Mar 2018

It is obviously frustrating you, and it would be nice to think that you wouldn’t have these problems with a new car, and that the dealer would give you better service. They don’t seem to be major problems, more annoying than anything else, and should be easily fixed. The good thing is that the car is still under warranty and the dealer appears to be attempting to fix the problems. If you are concerned about it ask the dealer for an appointment to go through the problems, what he is doing about them, and when he might be finished. You could also request that a representative of Hyundai be there at the same time.

What's the longevity of Brembo brakes?

Answered by CarsGuide 20 Nov 2017

It is very low kays for the brakes to be wearing out, but Brembo brakes are performance-oriented brakes and you would expect them to wear out faster than regular brakes. I would consult a brake specialist for an opinion.

Hyundai Santa Fe 2016: Are there any known problems with the brakes?

Answered by CarsGuide 30 Jun 2017

We haven’t heard of a problem with the brakes, but to need new rotors and pads at 15,000 km is ridiculous. Take it to your dealer and ask them to consult Hyundai to get an explanation. Although brakes are not covered by the warranty I would be asking for the company to replace the rotors and pads at no expense to you, and to justify why they needed replacing at such low kilometres.

Best 7-seat SUV to replace Camry?

Answered by CarsGuide 31 Jan 2017

There's little between the Sorento and Santa Fe, both are very good cars, the CX-9 is also a good choice. I couldn't choose between the Sorento and the Santa Fe, either one would be a good option, but the CX-9 could be the best for your needs as it's a little roomier inside.

Best used 7 seat SUVs under $30k?

Answered by CarsGuide 23 Dec 2016

Sludge build-up is a turbocharger killer, but sludge won't build up if the car is regularly serviced and the oil is changed so it's always fresh. The problem is usually only with cars that haven't been serviced. Other seven-seaters you could look at are the Kia Sorrento, Hyundai Santa Fe, or Toyota Kluger.
