If you have even the slightest pressure on the brake pedal with your left foot the car will not accellerate. Keep your foot off the brake when driving. I had the same problem and I have learned to keep my foot off the pedal. My dealer said Hyundai did this as a result of problems with Toyota.
I would hope the Hyundai has the transmission problem on Santa Fe cars by now. If not I'm driving my last one.

Any chance that the stalling you felt was in the Engine, and not the Transmission? My new 2011 acted funny for the first few hundred miles, stumbling upon acccleration. The Engine and Trans are "learning " your habits of how fast you hit the accelerator, and how fast you drive. Try a few more spirited acceleration scenarios at a time and place where you don't absolutely need them, and see if it resonds better each time. Mine eventually did.

It wasn't a stalling issue. It was a very loud BANG and the whole car shook like my tire had blown out. It has only happened twice, but is very frightening. The second time, it took a long time to build up speed, like the engine was in a lower gear.

Welcome to the Club. A lot of weird transmission noises and issues since they added the 6th gear.

Can't beleive that almost a whole month has gone by and no one else knows anything about a "Rear Coupling" fix for the Transmission issues.
Sounds like you were happy with it.
Have the Slams and the Bangs gone for real?

This is an update to my July 25 post re tranny problems with my 2010 Santa Fe 6cyl limited. After getting the upgrades mentioned in the last post, I didn't notice the shifting in park upon starting the engine for awhile. Well the software patches didn't fix the problem, it is still doing it periodically. I haven't bothered to call Hyundai customer relations or the dealer, they sound like a broken record and nothing fixes the problem. I have a little over 20K miles. If it gets worse will raise hell with customer relations again. Will keep you posted.

Can you tell me about this "rear coupling" fix? My dad has had problems with his new Sante Fe from the first week he bought it last May. It hesitates and stalls, and several trips to 3 different dealers have been unsuccessful as they cannot duplicate the problem.

Any chance we could get the gentleman ( or any else who had their Transmission problems corrected by replacing the "Rear Coupling")
to respond to the Forum.
I know there are many of us who would like to know what that is all about
and if it has been a "permanent" fix ?
The up-dates aren't working for everyone, so we need some fresh ideas.

We have the same problem with our 2001 Santa Fe shifting with a loud bang after remaining in low gear for too long. Took it to Advance Auto for a totally free error code reading...came back with error codes p0720 "Output Shaft Speed Sensor" which in turn created the error p1529 "Trans Control Module" . Hyundai dealer for service and repair closed on Saturday and Sunday so it will be Monday before I can see what the repair costs will be.

The 2010-2012 transmissions are hopefully different than a decade earlier and of course a lot less use and mileage.
Don't believe the same problem would have survived that time period.
