#187 of 211 Grinding kind of noise, now "check engine" light
Jun 11, 2010 (7:48 am)
Hi, all. Have an '04 Santa Fe, manual transmission. Am hearing kind of a "grinding" noise when I drive it (not when clutch is in and I'm shifting). In the past few weeks, it's started sputtering, with weird RPM swings, and at times it doesn't move forward as it should for the acceleration. Most days I commute by bus, so I haven't been driving it a lot, and I just got back from a week vacation. Last night the "check engine" light came on. It did that a month ago, but then went off. When I took it to Pep Boys (only place open on Sunday) then, they said they could not tell what was wrong because the light wasn't still on. I need to take it to a mechanic ASAP, but don't want to get blindsided. Any thoughts? Thanks!

We are having the same issue with a 2010 Santa Fe with less than 1000 miles on it. I notice the creaking when I press the accelerator and release it, when indicates to me that the torque of the engine is causing the body to flex. The noise is metallic and I am afraid it will affect the structural integrity of the vehicle. Other than this little issue we are very pleased with the vehicle

Sorry if this question has already been asked/answered, but can anybody throw any light on a thunking noise from front RH suspension. Dealer has had car now 4 times and last time he said that he changed some parts in the suspension. Vehicle is just out of warranty, problems has been ongoing for over six months. The noise is very obvious at low speeds and when going over a speed bump or uneven road surface. Is this a common problem? What is the most likely cause and what parts need to be tightened or replaced? Hopefully someone can help.
#190 of 211 2010 Santa Fe Transmission Problem
Aug 25, 2010 (8:26 pm)
I am from Canada. I purchased a 2010 Santa Fe in May. Immediately upon delivery the engine banged occasionally on starting. Dealer has advised I am number 9 at the dealership with one of the bad 2010 Santa Fes. Hyundai is not responding well to fixing the problem. Hyundai advised the dealer to top up transmission fluid and reset a computer in the engine. That was done, I have driven approx. 400 km since then and the banging problem has gotten worse (dealer advised that would probably happen). I am returning to the dealership (they have advised me to come back in for more 'maintenance'). Hyundai needs to come clean, replace the transmission and fix the problem.

I have been waiting since June for parts for glove box rattle - the box is loose. They have a service bulletin for it. Will call again today to see if they got the parts. My 2010 Santa Fe rattle worse than all the cars I have everr owned put together.
#195 of 211 HIgh-pitched vibrating Sound
Oct 03, 2010 (9:42 am)
Like Comment #144 we are experiencing the same sound at about 35-45 mph. It is usually when I am lightly pressing on the accelerator trying to maintain a constant speed in a lower speed zone. Service department couldn't recreate it at first but has now heard it. They have no idea. The vehicle has approx. 14,000 miles. They are strapping it up to a multiple microphone system to try to pinpoint the sound. Any suggestions out there?

Have a 2010 Santa Fe 3.5 GL just over 6 months old with about 20,000 KM on the odometer. Hearing an annoying clicking/tapping noise from within the dash, predominantly from the driver's side, but which seems to migrate to other sections.
Sounds like plastic items flexing at the joints where they snap together and/or loose wiring harnesses tapping against plastic sections. Occurs mostly on the rebound when going over dips or bumps in the road. Mentioned to counter personnel at dealership at last service and response was basically a shrug and a comment that, yes, there are a lot of harnesses and other stuff under there that can come loose and there's not much that they can do about it.
