Faulty fuel gauge. The fuel gauge will register empty and the fuel light will come on after filling up the tank. The gauge will waver and give faulty registers while driving, even climbing back to full after registering "empty" seconds before.

Fuel gauge readings went erratic within 1-2 months after warranty expired. Google searches show large number of other owners of 2007 Hyundai Santa fes having same problem. Check light turns on and diagnostic code indicating fuel level sensor problem latches. Driver can no longer tell how much fuel is in tank and becomes excessively distracted by having to watch miles driven and worry about running out of fuel. I firmly believe this is a design defect or quality problem with this many owners experiencing the same trouble. Hyundai is not acknowledging the problem nor offering adequate assistance to remedy it. Repair of problem typically runs between $550 and $650. That hurts when warranty is expired. Also there is no assurance at all that the replacement parts will not fail in the same way in 3-5 years. This problem does cause safety concerns. Hard to drive as safely when preoccupied and worried about how much fuel is in tank. When driver can't afford to fix it, driver has to worry that other failures that turn on the check light will go unnoticed because check light is always on now and assumed to just indicate fuel level sensor failure. Not good! for sanity I carry a spare 2 gallon can of gas in vehicle but it is not real safe to carry gas that way all the time.
