Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

2007 Hyundai Santa Fe Owner Comments

problem #6

First of all, the driver side visor never stayed and always fell on my head when I had it down. A year after I bought my car the driver side visor had a short in the wires which caused me to have a very dead battery. I replaced the battery myself but then the battery died again the following week because I didn't know it was my visor causing the problem. I took it to a mechanic and they said that the battery connector wires must be shorted so they replaced one of the wires. A week later, it was dead again and I took it back. Eventually, they figured out by accident (they pulled the visor down, and it fell on them) that they wires were shorted so they cut the visor wires. A simple solution that costs me 2 batteries and labor. I still can't use my visor because now nothing holds it up.

Santa Fe LX 2.7L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 61,000 miles

Sunvisor fell down and just hung by wires. Tried to prop up, etc. Dealer wanted over $400 to repair. Too expensive to repair so did not. Had visor removed because it kept falling down and blocking view. It is a real safety issue, live in SOuth FLorida and sun is so bright and cannot see without visor. This was my 4th Hyundai and was happy with the other three. This 2007 Santa Fe has been a true disappoinment and will certainly stop me from purchasing another Hyundai.

Santa Fe

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles

Both sun visors failed within weeks of each other. The plastic clip that keeps the metal arm secured to the plastic mount failed in both cases. The passenger side was an annoyance, but the driver side could have been very serious as these visors are wired for the vanity mirror light (meaning they stay attached but dangling from the roof) and my view was completely obstructed as I approached an intersection at 40 m.p.h.

After getting the driver side visor fixed, the passenger side visor is broken. I feel that the parts are cheaply made. This always happens after warranty expires. I don't know how they could have broken because they weren't used that much or any more than any other car I've owned and None of my other cars had this happen.

Santa Fe LX V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 72,000 miles

This is just ridiculous, both of the sun vizors fall off, without anything to hold it, but the electrical wire for the light.

The dealer is just on full denial, on something that has been fully reported on the internet all it is a known problem of this cars. How do the make a vizor with a handle of cheap plastic???

An on top of that is a dealer only item, that cost 100.00 dollars???

Really pissed off about that!!!!!!!
