2007 Hyundai Santa Fe Owner Comments

problem #2

Oct 152014

Santa Fe GLS 2.7L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 62,137 miles


The transmission failed after 100 000 kms, no warning or anything. When we went to the dealer they said there was nothing they could do and a new transmission would cost $10,000 and a used Transmission would be $4,000. We put the used transmission in and now we are at a year later and the used one is now failing. Wish I never purchased a Hyundai, has been nothing but problems for us and the dealership has been just as bad. If you are thinking of buying one….DON’T!!

Santa Fe Limited

  • Automatic transmission
  • 48,000 miles

transmission failed ,Hyundai replaced it a day later can not get the car out of the driveway will have to be towed to the dealer,it is worse to drive this time!! come on 48.000 miles !!!! Hyundai dealership acted as though they have never heard of this happening before.Wrong! it's on the web..maybe they should log on..

Update from Mar 31, 2012: after replacing transmission and car still not working they said it needed an adjustment long story short,it was the all wheel drive that was interfering with the movement of the car not the transmission at all!
