i feel your pain but your frustration should be with your dealer not the Santa Fe. Its a machine and can break. Your issue sounds like a simple sensor problem and could be fixed quickly IF your dealer knew what they were doing. Codes should not be cleared until diagnosed. The computer should not be re-set. There is no such thing as a ghost light or the vehicle fixing itself. However, under certain conditions if the fault does not return the code is stored for reference and will clear the light. Short answer: Go to another dealer.
#11 of 11 2007 Santa Fe issues/ Oil change intervals
Apr 12, 2008 (10:10 am)
I've been browsing this message forum for a few days, and I was noticing that a lot of people are having window regulator problems. Is this a common issue with the 07' Santa Fe's? Does anyone have a 07/08 Santa Fe with like 50k on it? If so, what kind of issues have you had?
I opted to go with the 3.3L V6 engine (Limited Model). I've heard that the 3.3L is a better engine than the 2.7, and I wanted the extra horsepower. Anyway's, I was wondering what kind of issues, if any at all, people on this forum are experiencing with this motor?
Lastly, I decided at my last oil change (6k) to opt for the full synthentic oil. The car has a remote starter, so it tends to idle for an extended period of times. It's also run pretty hard on the highway, and it does see a lot of stop and go traffic. Anyway's, I decided that I am going to change the oil ever 5-6 k. What are your thoughts on that?
