Suspension /check engine light /lower ball joint: Dealer replace @54,353 miles, lower arm in 2004 and 8/2006 replacement is needed I have taken my 2001 Santa Fe to dealer 8 plus times for check engine light and was told found tether on gas cap not letting cap close tight enough /moved tether and ran evap test and check out ok. I was told cap loose 8 plus times this problem is on going. Return to dealer for jerk transmission issues I have to push the accelerator pedal to the floor and it takes off slow and once gets power the car jerks starts as if the gears or not switching over. Dealer said do the pressure in gas cap and gas cap not closed tight enough eval test was done.
