9/20/2010 - VENICE, FL
WITH A COLD ENGINE IN THE MORNING, MY 2010 HYUNDAI SANTE FE VEHICLE TRANSMISSION SHIFTS WITH A LOUD "BANG" AROUND 10MPH. THIS IS SPORADIC. ALSO AT START UP, THE VEHICLE WHILE SITTING IN PARK, DOES THE SAME THING WHEN STARTED, THOUGH NOT AS FORCEFUL AT WHEN DRIVING. I NOW HAVE 4800 MILES, AND THIS HAS BEEN HAPPENING EVERY 2 OR 3 WEEKS MINIMUM. I USED TO THINK LITTLE OF IT UNTIL IT HAS BEGUN REPEATING EVEN AFTER THE DEALER "RESET" THE SOFTWARE. I ALSO NOTICE NOW THERE ARE SEVERAL AUTO WEBSITES VERY AWARE OF THE PROBLEM. HERE IS ONE: HTTP://TOWNHALL-TALK.EDMUNDS.COM/DIRECT/VIEW/.F127D3D/199. I AM SCHEDULED TO LEAVE THE CAR THIS WEEK, AND THEY ARE NOT ACKNOWLEDGING A PROBLEM UNLESS THEY CAN DUPLICATE IT. I FEEL THIS IS AN UNSAFE CONDITION TO OPERATE THE VEHICLE IN, AND THAT IT WILL ONLY GET WORSE. I WILL FILE A LEMON LAW CLAIM AFTER 2 MORE ATTEMPTS TO FIX THIS EXTREMELY OBVIOUS PROBLEM.

2010 HYUNDAI SANTE FE AWD TRANSMISSION ISSUE. IMMEDIATELY UPON STARTING, WHILE CAR IS IN PARK, CAR IDLES HIGH, WANTS TO LURCH BACKWARD, BUT IS "CAUGHT" BY THE FACT THAT IT IS STILL IN PARK. MAKES A LOUD BANG SOUND WHEN THIS HAPPENS - ALMOST LIKE SOMETHING IN THE FRAME OR ELSEWHERE IN CAR CATCHES IT. THEN, WHEN PUTTING IN GEAR, IT IDLES HIGH AND ACCELERATES VERY QUICKLY WITHOUT FOOT ON GAS. NEED TO KEEP FOOT SECURELY ON BRAKE FOR SAFETY. HYUNDAI DENIES A PROBLEM WHEN IT IS BROUGHT IN FOR SERVICE. OTHER HYUNDAI SANTA FE DRIVERS INDICATE PROBLEM IS WITH TRANSMISSION AND GETS WORSE OVER TIME, INCLUDING HAVING STALLS WHILE IN TRAFFIC,, UNEXPECTED ACCELERATION, CAR WON'T SHIFT IN 2ND AND 3RD GEARS. PLEASE GET HYUNDAI TO ADDRESS THIS PROBLEM AND ISSUE A RECALL.

2010 SANTA FE GL - ABOUT 60% OF STARTING HAS A JERK/KICK. IT'S LIKE SOMETHING ENGAGED SUDDENLY. TAKEN TO THE DEALER TWICE AND SHOWED NO ABNORMAL READINGS. ON AUG. 19/2010, WHILE DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY AT 110 KM/HR THERE WAS A LOUD BANG AS IF SOMETHING HIT THE CAR FROM BEHIND. I THOUGHT THE TRUCK BESIDE ME LOST A WHEEL AND STRUCK MY CAR. HAD TO GET OFF THE HIGHWAY AND DO A VISUAL INSPECTION WHICH REVEALED NOTHING. MY CAR HAD 7,000 KM AT THAT TIME.

9/3/2010 - NORTH BILLERICA, MA
AS THE ENGINE STARTS WITH THE GEAR SHIFT IN "PARK", THE 2010 SANTE FE LURCHES FORWARD AS IF THE TRANSMISSION HAS NOT DISENGAGED. THE FORWARD LURCH RANGES FROM A SENSATION OF MOTION TO AN INCH OF TIRE ROTATION. FURTHERMORE, THIS HAPPENS AGAIN WHEN THE VEHICLE IS IN MOTION WHEN IDLING BETWEEN 1200-1500 RPM AND WHEN ACCELERATOR IS RELEASED AND PRESSED AGAIN AT AROUND 20 MPH TO 25 MPH. IT HAS HAPPENED AT SPEEDS AS HIGH AS 40 TO 45 MPH. IT FEELS LIKE SOMEONE BUMPED INTO ME FROM BEHIND. IN ONE INSTANCE I QUICKLY APPLIED THE BRAKES ASSUMING I WAS REAR-ENDED.
