My 2010 santa fe was built on jan/28/2010, i've heard on this forum that the production date from oct/09 to jan/2010 are the ones having the most problems. i just got my car back on friday from having a remanufactored tranny installed, although it's not clunking now and shifting better than before, the down shifting is still a problem. i also now have a very noisey engine knock. i've read on other forums about drive shaft problems, front end problems, lock problems etc, if you want my opinion wait for the 2011. i'm now attempting to get hyundai canada involved and take this lemon back, good luck!!!!

My first 2010 manufacture date was November 2009 after all the issues I had with it my dealer took it back and replaced it with another 2010 Santa fe and the new build date was June 2010 so far it runs way better than my first one I think it had something to do with the build dates from oct to Jan

Good luck with getting ANY HELP from Hyundai Canada... I am om my 4th transmission in 12,000 kms been without the vehicle for almost 2 months and Hyundai wont give me a service loaner because I insisted that I get a NEW transmission, not a reman one like the first one they put in that lasted about 2 blocks.....

Went to pick up My Sante Fe on Monday, Jan 10th and was told that the transmission case was cracked and it is leaking fluid all over the place... Still no vehicle after 2 months of waiting, 3 payments coming out of my account and not a single response from Hyundai Canada.... worst thing I ever did was buy this Sante Fe... should have went with the Mazda CX7

Hyundai in Sarasota, Fl. Put in a brand new transmission this past fall. I was ready to go to lemon law and they acted-only after they witnessed the transmission banging at low speeds. Why no recall is amazing.

I also have had the same problems with my transmission. I had mine at the dealer about two weeks ago and they did some re programing. Not only do I still have the start up and shifting issues but now the whole car seems to vibrate at between 65 and 70 mph. I was wondering if anyone else with the 2010 Santa Fe was having that issue?

This one is dated January 2011. It is titled: 11-AT-001, and appears to be a new ECM Update.
As a reader of this Forum for a few months now, I crossed my fingers as I signed the deal a week ago today for a 2011 Santa Fe GLS 2.4. So far, 370 miles and no problems. The problems seem to be more prevalent with the 3.5L V6. Not posting to bring anyone down; I'm posting to prove that Hyundai is still working on this issue.

Boy, you guys are scaring the hell out of me. I'm just about ready to sign for a 2011 6cyl AWD Limited. I've read that theres been some problems with the rear brake calibers but this tranny and drive shaft stuff is really worrying me. I know a few people with 09 Santa Fe's and they love them. Are these new ones really that bad? Please answer as soon as you can since I'm really close to signing...thanks

hi frozen out in alberta, there is an agency out there called CAMVAP who can help us, google it and call them. from what i have read u should be able to get hyundai canada to take back the lemon because your vehicle is less than 1 yr old and has less than 25000 km on it and the dealer has made more than 3 unsuccessful repairs. as well they can help out all other consumers with related issues even with higher mileage check it out!!!

I havn't heard anything bad about the 2011, from what the forums are saying it's only the 2010 santa fe. After talking to a hyundai sales rep these tranny and drive shaft problems are on the 2010 4cyl and 6cyl models so far. This engine and trany are both new to hyundai. best of luck!!!
