"Service lights have been going on and off for a while (the skid and the steep grade lights)"
"The car had been 'racing' since i purchased it as if it was having trouble changing gears...then it self corrected. It would do this on and off..."
Hummm..........seems like the owner is part of the problem here!
You had these issues and you didn't take it to the dealer immediately and demand warranty work? Then your tranny locks up and you wonder why?
I wouldn't accept the vehicle back from the dealer until these issues are fixed, period. If the dealer won't do anything contact Hyundai and take it to a different dealer.
To continue to drive a new vehicle like that is ridiculous and something I just don't understand at all.
Good luck on the repairs.

I did take it in to the dealer for the 'racing' issue on more than one occasion fyi. Was told that's the way the car is as they show no problem with the computer codes.
Not an owner problem here. If issues are dismissed because it does not happen when it's in for service what can one do. If a light does not come on when they test drive it...then there's nothing to fix as far as they are concerned.
I don't think anyone would not take advantage of warranty. No dummy here.

Must not be a major Tuscon issue since the last complaint was almost 6 months ago.
You might want to check the problem with the Sante Fe's transmisson issues. They keep hoping to solve it with computer updates.

The issue was not the transmission. They replaced the brake switch as this is what the code showed. The gears are not stuck anymore. I hope it lasts. It was a relief know that it wasn't the transmission

Has anyone other than me had their car transmission go 4 times in 5 years??? That's my story, the latest breakdown was June 25, 2011. I complained to Hyundai consumer affairs and was instructed to have it towed to a dealer for inspection ( which by the way he charged me for even though I already knew what the problem was). They had my car from 6/25 to 7/15 to finally tell me their was nothing they could do for me. I know the car has 100,300 miles but this to me is extreme circumstances. Plus now I am stuck with the cost of a rental for all this time.
When I called consumer affairs to request a written explanation for why they would not offer assistance I was told it's not their policy to offer explanations in writing. When I asked the representative to tell me the reasons she said she was unfamiliar with the case and would leave a message for the case manager to get back to me, well that was two days ago and I have heard nothing. All this seems suspect to me.

A small group of owners may not be a good "gauge". However, when it is "you", you'll feel differently. It is not a safe feeling to be going 70mph on the highway and suddenly your 2 mth old HYundai Tucson makes a loud bang with a big jolt. I read post #22 and my experience is identicle only my 2011 has 1,300 miles and is only 2 mths old. I knew something was wrong and immediately turned back to take it to the dealership and it's still there. They said they had to order a part for trans. that broke(some sensor for shifting). If this is an issue with other Tucson's why aren't they recalling the part. Let me say, that it is not a safe feeling to know that could happen again and could cause a wreck.

Many of us make the decision to purchase a new vehicle so we can safely transport ourselves and our families around without worrying about mechanic failures while we're driving. Unfortunately, I didn't feel that way with my Tucson. (Post #22) Hyundai could not figure out what was wrong with the transmission so they replaced it.
Just so you know.... they happen to have a policy of replacing parts with RECONDITIONED PARTS! I guess I didn't read the fine print and assumed that warranty items were replaced with new parts!! silly me...
I decided that this was not a vehicle that I wanted to keep, not knowing when this new reconditioned transmission would fail since Hyundai couldn't even figure out what the problem was with the other one.
I tried to trade it in at the dealership that I bought it at, and they offered the lowest possible Blue book trade in. After all, "Its a piece of crap, why would we give you more!" was the reply from the dealership.
Yeah.... great salesmanship and support.
Obviously I'll never go back there, nor will I ever purchase a Hyundai product again. I am now the proud owner of a Subaru Outback, and love it. I made sure to ask if they replace warranty parts with new Subaru parts and their reply was "of course, why would you even ask a question like that?"

I have had both of these problems too. The racing at start up, which they could not explain, and said there was not recall on it. The lights are a new problem. I am going to the dealership again this weekend.

This is a very real problem. My wife and I are having the same issue. Lights sporadically come on as you've indicated. Our's has not exhibited the 'racing' feeling as much as it seems to slip. Happened at a stop light yesterday. Went to hit the gas and the tranny slipped. Today, my wife was unable to place the car in park. Had to shut the car off, restart. This is a very serious situation.
