I purchase a brand new Santa Fe in May. Last week with 7000+ miles I noticed a leak. Took it to the dealer this week and they put a dye in my oil. I will return next week so they can check it out. Obviously a product defect and years too early for a car to develop a leak. Despite the resolution at the dealer this will be my first and last hyundai. Some internet research found that it is probably the crank seal which Hyundai seems to know about. I'm sure it will be a major inconvenience. So much for them producing a vastly superior product to when they started out.

Dealer "fixed" timing chain cover leak 4 days ago. Today I awoke to oil on my garage floor. What is it going to be this time? I'll keep you posted. Also, transmission is surging. Vehicle is obviously junk. If you are reading these reviews to research new cars...do not buy a Hyundai. There is no comunication between Hyundai engineers and dealers because my dealer is clueless...or just acting that way.
