Hi any advice on this one would be greatly appreciated,
We have a 2001 Santa Fe which keeps jumping from second gear into third and then will not go any higher or lower until you turn the engine of and then restart when it jumps from 2nd to 3rd it goes with a thump,will be taking it to a hyundai dealer asap but just wondered if anyone has had this also
#129 of 611 Sudden transmission issue
Oct 07, 2008 (8:37 am)
I have a 2003 Santa Fe with the V6 and this morning the check engine light came on and the transmission would only engage in 3rd gear forward, however it would still go into reverse rather hard. I could not shift the transmission down with the select shift so I parked it.
I checked the fluid and it was low and dirty so I am hoping a good transmission service will take care of it and the check engine light. Does that sound like a reasonable solution or can I expect the worse and a huge transmission repair bill? Again the vehicle was driven a very short distance back home so hopefully no further internal damage occured.
It is my fault for not checking an keeping up on fluids so lessoned learned, usually that does not occur. Thank you for your feedback and input.

Did you check the fluid while it was hot? If not you might try that

#132 of 611 Brand new 08 GLS won't go into gear!!!

I just Bought a 2008 Santa FE GLS on September 25th. Unfortunatelt I live 8 hours away from the nearest Dealership, so I has hoping to get a good reliable vehicle. This is our thied vehicle, I also have a 07 Chev Silverado and a 2005 Subaru wrx STI. Anyways yesterday morning, i was running a little late, and it was maybe -2 degrees out. So I figured i would just start my santy and let it warm up while I was sitting in for a couple of Mins. Then I put my foot on the breake and moved the shifter to reverse, and NOTHING...so I sat there again for a min, and tried again...nothing...so I kept my foot on the gas and then it jerked backward a little. So I put it in Drive and...NOTHING....So I was fumeing mad, had my Spouse on the Phone and was ready to drive it back to where is came from. I hung up my cell...and then it went in and outt of gear just fine!! and itt has been fine ver since....So I called the deaership and asked if maybe there was some sort of temperature sensor for the transmission or somethin, and they said no...So now I am worried, Ilive IN the NWT and we have snpw already, we bought it so we can park our 50,000 car for the winter...Anyways I am pissed and waiting to hear fomr my salesperson... I wanta Brand new one!!!!

No not yet, I was a little nasty with the chick on the phone so I fugure I'll have to keep calling until I can talk to someone about it! The funny thing is this morning we got a big dump of snow and it is a little cooler out, and I was running late so I did the same thing, and no problems....I may just stick it out and if it happens again Then I will for sure drive the 8 hours to give it back! Dont get me wrong, until yesterday morning I was sooo in LOve with my Santa Fe....now I am just a little bit uneasy!!

Just bought a second hand vehicle (Hyundai Santa Fe 2004) last week whilst working here in East Timor. The problem I am facing is that the automatic transmission of the vehicle is constantly on the 3 gear when I start the vehicle and when it runs. The gear never changes, and when I change into reverse it shakes violently. I need advice on what I should do in trying to fix the problem; as it seems that all the workshops here do not know what is wrong with the vehicle and cannot help me identify the problem.

Hi, any update on your Santa Fe? I have a '08 Limited with 3800 miles and just started experiencing the same problem. My wife is freaked out b/c it's our first (and probably only) Hyundai. Can they really fix the car by replacing the transmission? Thanks.
