CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe has a problem with the engine stalling while driving. Both our data & the NHTSA's complaint data show a significant defect trend at low mileage.

In a 2-page letter sent August 2014 to Santa Fe owners, Hyundai claims the engine stalling only occurs under a "specific set of operating conditions".

However a class action lawsuit filed around the same time details multiple claims from Sante Fe owners that claim the engine stalling happens at any time, under any conditions.

I was driving down the road. There were not any other cars near me. My sunroof literally exploded! it sounded like a gunshot went off. The glass seemed to have disappeared into thin air! I posted on facebook how crazy this is and I started receiving information from friends how this is common with Hyundai. The dealership will not even consider that it may be a defect, despite me finding several Santa Fe owners that have had their sunroofs replaced because of this.
