I had a 2010 Sante Fe that starting leaking in that same area within 4 days of driving it off the lot. My dealer did not believe me and was not very helpful in determining what the problem was. Finally they found out that my windshield was not set correctly and so they replaced it. That seemed to clear up that problem - there were many other issues with the cars' electrical system and air conditioner. The last straw was an electrical component in the starter went in Jan 2012... 16 months of ownership -I traded for a new Murano.

Have a 2010 Santa Fe Limited that has had a similar AC problem since I bought it. When it's rainy, the AC shuts off after about a half hour. Dealer says I need to bring it in when that happens because everything looks fine. Dealer is 35 miles away, and it usually happens when dealer is closed, so that hasn't happened. Have you had any resolution yet?

yes - it was fixed after much hell raising w/ Hyundia USA..... it was a faulty actuator. ask your dealer to contact the corporate service people - they should know about this as it is now a known problem.

Nope. I arrested my pick on the Santa Fe in 2008 because it has the biggest cargo space of the category, especially w. the 5 passenger configuration but in no way 1 (or 2) bikes will fit upright. If you remove both wheels, you can pile them up in the cargo area w/o taking the rr seats down or you can flip the rr seats down, remove only the front wheels and pile them up. If you don't want to dismantle your bikes, your only options are to buy a roof or hitch rack or to buy a minivan. Mines fit perfectly in my 4-wheel shed, a 1999 Chevy Venture.

Hi, I have exactly the same problem with wet passenger footwell. I was advised that this is likely to be a sunroof problem. I tested by pouring water down the pipes, the rght one was good but the left one was showing water but not as much. This could inicate a leak inn this pipe. The work involved to check this is quite expensive with several components needign removal. Did anyone find the solution to this.

I am torn between a 2008 AWD Limited with 47k miles and a 2009 FWD Limited with 22k. Has anyone had a problem with their AWD? Also, is there a significant difference between the 08 and 09 mechanically or otherwise?
