#554 of 611 Mine has had issues too...
Dec 07, 2011 (9:08 am)
I forget if mine is 2011 or 2010, I got it in March 2010... It's the Hyundai Santa Fe 3.5 Auto FWD. Got really good deal so I bought the vehicle but things that have been fixed so far
** 1. Transmission was slipping (replaced with brand new transmission)
2. Paint on door (there was a paint air bubble on one of the doors)
Each time, the dealer loaned me a car to drive and the car was fixed in ~2 days max. So great service.
Overall. It's a car you can get at a great value with loads of features, I recommend it...
** With hindsight, I think the transmission might not have been the issue and it's the car's crazy sensitive gas pedal. **

Maybe it isn't the Service that's inconsistent but rather depends on what country you live in.
Here in the US, they replace transmissions with Re builds and they would never replace anything on your sensitive manner of driving-- they would Test Drive and base on their "professional" opinion.

Nothing to do with country. The dealer also wanted to rebuild the transmission but I fought for a new transmission and I also had the paint issue on the car. So I think the dealer just gave me the benefit of the doubt.

I got a new transmission under warranty (after much fighting) but still not great...now downshifting I feel a hesitation around 60-50 KPH. Am I crazy or do I have a lemon?

I have a 2010 Santa Fe V6 3.5L Sport. Has 30K on it.
Over the last couple weeks there has a been a knocking here and there. Today the knocking/jerking became very bad. As we accelerate, the transmission seems to slipping all over the place.
We're not very happy with it. We're making arrangements to drop it off tomorrow while we go on vacation. I'll want a new transmission for sure.
I think it's safe to not blame your gas pedal.

Are you aware of the FIX for these tranny problems? Take it to the dealer and have them apply TSB 11-AT-011-1 (or any update). This fixed my problem with the harsh/ abrupt shifting. I had it done back in May and have smooth shifting since. I have posted here before concerning this topic. I REFUSED a new tranny (they will tell you NEW but it would be REBUILT). BTW any transmission will "clunk" such as at low speeds (going through a parking lot) as sometimes it will start to go into a gear but you force it to downshift due to the "crawling" through parking lot. Good luck!

#562 of 611 Hyundai Santa fe Jerking!!!when accelerate
May 07, 2012 (6:26 am)
I own a 2004 Hyundai santa fe 3.5 4WD
since I bought it feels like a jerk when accelerate from 0 to 20 milles and its worse when up a hill.
I read it could be a magnetic coupling.
someone else with this problem?
#563 of 611 Transmissions issues

Does anybody know if the transmission issues have been solved? I just bought a new
2012 Santa Fe with 4 cylinders and am wondering if the tranny problems are in/on the 4 cylinders.
