2005 Hyundai Santa Fe Owner Comments

problem #4

Jun 262018

Santa Fe 3.5L LX V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 58,195 miles


I test drove a 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe which I wanted to buy. Driving just down the street after accelerating I approached an intersection and had to brake. The pedal was like a brick, with no give and the car made a grinding noise. I had to push the pedal with all my strength to finally make the car stop before rolling into the intersection. Awful feeling. Of course I didn't buy the car. The dealer shrugged and keeps on selling the car as is. Should I report it and where? It's dangerous!

tcs and the ABS light stays on 4wd doesn't work well

Well I brought this vehicle a few days ago, Now I know its use but with anyone that has a child driving now wouldn't want them hurt for not money nor love. My child is getting ready to go to grad. school and she is the one who will be driving it so I want it safe for her, and not worrying about breaking down all the time. Cause some dumb person didn't worry about fixing it right from the get go. So I'm asking if this vehicle has a recall on the TCS and ABS lights staying on. And even better than that why is the signal lights is mess up in the wiring. thanks Gaynell

After driving 3 to 5miles the ABS and Traction Control lights come on. And then when you step on brake pedal. You start getting a pulsating in the brake pedal
