Santa Fe

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles


Our 2017 Sante Fe also has hesitation in take off. Runs fine for several miles, stop at stop light and then on take off > give it gas and it sits.

Had it hooked up to scope "nothing wrong" with it.... :( Seriously love the vehicle. Seriously considering getting rid of it with all the problems I am reading! We purchased it with 15,000 miles on it and have drove it hard > now has just under 50,000 miles. We normally keep cars and drive them until way beyond dead. This one scares us to do that.

Santa Fe Sport 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 300 miles

We purchased this vehicle new and had it about 2 weeks getting use to it and started to see a hesitation from a stop it never stalled but would not accelerate until we kept working the gas pedal then it would take off like a rocket. As time has now gone by it is still hesitating but now it is also doing it during a drive we might just take our foot off the gas to cruise and then when we need to speed up or change lanes there's nothing there a flat spot in the acceleration some call it We have returned it to the dealer and left it for a few days just to pick it up and hear them tell us they did a health check and found nothing wrong and as were driving it home there it is again! This concern was noticed at 200 miles and now it has just under 4000 miles does anyone have this same concern please let me know so I can take this information to the dealer and help their technicians to repair my vehicle and this might help others also.

Do we need to go the lemon law way?

Santa Fe Limited/Ultimate 3.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 356 miles

We bought a 2017 Santa Fe Limited/Ultimate and I have had it at the dealership 3 times for a severe hesitation when accelerating after slowing down (turning a corner or stop-light changes). They replaced the transmission and I noticed no change. They tell me there are no recalls for the vehicle so there is nothing I can do but "modify my driving" to compensate for this intermittent occurrence. I see some others are having the same issue so I'm posting here in hopes that this will become a recognized defect in the vehicle performance and repairs will be mandated.
