#1003 of 1181 Re: Slight Throttle Surge when idling in 2007 Santa Fe SE [pelican19]
Jul 16, 2010 (12:36 pm)
I'm brand new to this forum. I just bought a 2005 Santa Fe AWD, 38K miles. When I push the accelerator from a dead stop it always surges rapidly for maybe 5+ seconds and then it settles down. That five+ seconds can be a nightmare when I'm having to make a sharp corner. It almost seems like the car is going out of control. The car is out of warranty or else I'd be knocking on the Hyundai door. Next week I'll probably take it to a mechanic. Is there anything particular I should tell him/her? Thanks, Gene
#1004 of 1181 Rear A/C will not turn on
Jul 16, 2010 (6:39 pm)
i have a 2007 Santa FE base model with a 3.3L V6. Noticed that the rear a/c will not turn on while the front and max a/c work fine. Green LED on rear a/c switch does not come on when you push the button. Thought it might be fuse A/CON 2 which appears to be the fuse for the rear A/C switch but other functions for this fuse are working

We are now going through the exact same thing- what did you end up doing??? any advice. our car has been at dealership a week and they have told us the exact same thing- could change master cylinder but will not cover it because they can not get it to do the same for them.

We have a 2006 Santa and the exact same thing happened to both our sunvisors a couple of years ago, one not long after the other. We were told it was a failing with that model vehicle but sounds like it is a failing for all Santas. Both were replaced under warranty.
#1008 of 1181 Replacement Tires for 2007 Santa Fe Limited
Sep 23, 2010 (5:14 am)
My 2007 Santa Fe Limited is up to 37,000 miles and it's times to change the tires. I've done research on tires, but I'm still confused as to what's the best model for a safe driving experience with Winter on the horizon and small children as passengers. Also, I'm not sure if I should get a model offered by Costco or a more traditional outlet such as Goodyear -- if the latter, is it reasonable to try to negotiate the inclusion of a wheel alignment and balance with the purchase. The size of the tires needed is P235/60R-18. Any recommendations are most appreciated!

I had a difficult time finding tires that would even fit my Santa Fe that weren't $200/tire and up. I finally settled on the Yokohama YK520 at Discount Tire. I have had mine for several months and have performed great. I have a lead foot and push my tires to the extreme but the wear has been fine. The ride greatly improved over the OEM tires despite what some reviewers say about the tire. That said, I paid around $160 per tire but with all costs involved, the entire set came to right under $800.
