A friend of mine was looking at the Santa Fe and she found reports of sudden engine failures.

Is this media hype or is Hyundai still working out bugs?

There is a recall out on this and she should ask the dealer, tell her that she knows, they will make sure it's fixed before she buys it.
I know of the recall, it causes the engine to stall, when a certain sensor has an incorrect reading,... I don't recall what it was, but I'll try to find out,..

That incident affects the earliest models of the Santa Fe only. The first batch of the 2001 Santa Fe models are affected. The new 2002 models are not affected by it. BTW, my neighbor got a white 2002 Santa Fe looks nice...<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

P.S. you can get some good information about the Santa Fe at this website:

Ahha I finally found out what the exact recall is, so you can tell the dealer this, and make sure it's done. And sound like you know exactly what's going on <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
And this only affects Santa Fes upto and including ones made before Feb 28, 2001
It's recall #33 or R33
What happens is the Crankshaft position sensor messes up and gets a false reading, causeing the engine to stall,.... Most dealers would have fixed it already.
But just check the door and see if it's made before or after Feb 28 2001. And like ConceptVBS said it only affects the earlier ones.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
Hope that helped
