Traveling slowly on a side road, the front passanger side of my Santa Fe collapsed with the sound of a terrific boom. The coil spring on the passanger side had broken and dug like a knife into the tire, shredding the tire almost all the way around, leaving a deep, wide gash. Upon inspection, I saw that part of the coil had broken off. This problem is related to hyundia's "capaign 124, " a recall for inspection and possible replacement of front end coil springs.

On February 24, 2012 I went out to my car to go to daycare and work my car was lowered to the ground all four tires seem to be flat. I called the closest garage. They towed my car, repaired it for $2028.91. In September 2014., I received a recall from Hyundai for the coil spring. After 6 months correspondence with them, they gave me only $949.03. I feel they should reimburse me the entire expenses.

My car is at a Hyundai service center for the recall campaign 124 on the front coil spring and the coil is fractured. My vehicle has been there three days and now I was informed that the part is on backorder and may take one week to one month or more for the part to be released only the guard is available at this time but not the coil spring that needs to be replaced on my vehicle. I feel this is unacceptable amount of time to wait for the repair and Hyundai should have had this part in stock and available to make the proper service needed on this recall. Please investigate this matter and advise. Thank you

I bought a 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe on June 22, 2006. In July 2006 I took a trip to san antonio, Texas. While I was out there, my engine light came on and went off a few days later. After a few months when it came back on I took it to ray bryant service center where I bought the vehicle. They checked it and got the light to go off. As I was on my way home the light came back. Every time I brought it back the light would come back on and is still on. Sometimes as I'm driving it feels like it loses power. I also brought it in for the front end because it always feel like I have an egg in the left front tire. Instead of the service worker didn't check it out he said he had a Santa Fe just like mine and that his didn't do that and never did a thing about it. I've brought it to another mechanic and he couldn't find the problem. I've bought new tires and the same problem, so I brought it back telling them that it feels like I have an egg in the tire they checked it and can' find anything wrong with the tires. As time goes by the problem is getting worst. I feel really embarrassed when I have someone in my truck and it rides like that. I do hope that there's something that can be done about this problem because I am on disability and can't afford to buy another vehicle. I really love my Santa Fe.

Hard clunking in the driver side front wheel. Sounded like a loose brake caliper. Removed the tire to check it out and found the lower control arm was broken in half on the one side. If it broke all the way when the car was in motion. The wheel would have come off and the car would have flipped over. This is serious. I could have been killed driving this car.

Vehicle was parked when the passenger side strut spring broke and punctured the tire. Fortunately this happened when the vehicle was not in motion as it would have punctured the tire and locked the tire if driving, creating a severe emergency.
