About Hyundai Santa Fe

    The Santa Fe represents Hyundai's first SUV. It premiered in 2001 and initially showed off a base 2.4L four-cylinder engine mated to either a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic. A bolder 2.7L Delta V6 was available as well, and was directed through a standard automatic transmission. The Hyundai Santa Fe is credited as being one of the very first compact SUVs to employ a V6 engine. Base four-cylinder engines produced up to 149 horsepower while the V6 churned out 177 hp, which was deemed a little low for the segment. However, vehicles equipped with the V6 were eligible for optional traction control. As for the model's dimensions, the first-generation Hyundai Santa Fe measured in with a wheelbase of 103.1 inches, a width of 71.7 inches (upped to 72.6 inches for 2003), a height of 65.9 inches, and an overall length of 177.2 inches. Three trim levels were presented for the vehicle: GL, GLS, and the luxuriously-themed LX. The Santa Fe could also be had with either front or all-wheel drive.

    In 2003, the original 2.7L V6 was replaced by a punchier 3.5L Sigma V6, which was good for 195 horsepower. V6 models also received an updated four-wheel drive system. Other changes to the Hyundai Santa Fe parts included a new six-CD disc changer in the Santa Fe GLS. A more comprehensive redesign came for 2005, when a new grille, new taillights, and improved accents and instruments inside the vehicle were added. Also during this year, the four-cylinder engine was dropped from the lineup, as was the five-speed manual transmission and the GL trim level, respectively. In the base four-cylinder engine's place was the 2.7L V6. A special passenger airbag cutoff that uses a sensor if the seat is unoccupied was also added along with a three-point seatbelt to the center rear-seat. The 2006 model year was the last for the first-generation model. No major changes were made to the Hyundai Santa Fe parts for 2006, although the LX trim was renamed the Limited.

    The second-generation of the Hyundai Santa Fe rolled off the line for the 2007 model year in three trim levels: GLS, SE, and Limited. The GLS was considered the base Santa Fe, which saw a standard 2.7L V6 engine with variable-valve timing capable of approximately 185 horsepower directed through a five-speed manual transmission with a four-speed automatic offered as an option. As with the previous edition of the model, front-wheel drive is standard with all-wheel drive available throughout all three trim level configurations. Santa Fe SE versions were geared up with a heartier 3.3L V6 (242 hp) and a five-speed automatic transmission. The top-level Limited boasted the same powertrain but featured more standard Santa Fe accessories and amenities, such as a sunroof, leather seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a premium 605 watt stereo system. In 2008, a navigation system as well as a power glass sunroof was made standard on the Limited. For 2010, the Santa Fe parts and accessories were given several updates starting with a new grille, new taillights, chrome accents, and Bluetooth capability. Engine options were also changed, as a new 2.4L four-cylinder and 3.5L V6 entered the lineup, showcasing more horsepower and better fuel-efficiency.

    The Hyundai Santa Fe is a crossover power-player, intent on delivering the style, punch, and convenience that SUV drivers can't live without. As with most midsizes, there is the concentration here on the interior, exhibiting enough room to pack it with cargo or a group of friends for a trip to the park. While the model holds a reputation for efficient performance, the Santa Fe also provides nifty handling and a quiet ride. Not many crossovers are as fashionable and capable as the Santa Fe, which makes finding the right additions to personalize your version a truly rewarding experience.

    Hyundai Made a Mistake in Construction of Santa Fe Transmission
    Hyundai Made a Mistake in Construction of Santa Fe Transmission

    Everyone can make a mistake and automobile manufacturers are no exception. Unfortunately when auto producers misstep, it may cause serious problems for the vehicle's occupants. Hyundai, the South Korean vehicle producing company, is recalling 6,169 Santa Fe mid-size crossovers. This recall embraces only the SUVs with two-wheel drive systems and the 2.4-liter engines, mated to the automatic transmissions. The owners of the Santa Fes, which were produced in the period from October 15, 2009 till March 5, 2010, should address the dealerships to get their vehicles fixed free of charge. Hyundai plans to begin the recall in June 2011.

    The investigation was opened on April 07, 2011, by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Not every investigation of the safety agency results in a recall campaign. However, on April 27, the NHTSA reported that the recall should be initiated by the Hyundai motor company as the transmission was found to be defective. “The intermediate shaft may suffer from noise and excessive wear due to a misalignment of the intermediate shaft with the right side output gear,” said the Office of Defects Investigation. “Continuing to drive the vehicle in this condition leads to the development of a whirring/whining noise and can eventually cause damage to the automatic transmission.”

    This issue is linked to the recent recall of Kia Sorento vehicles. The NHTSA specialists found the same problem in the 2011 Kia Sorento. The total quantity of the affected vehicles equals to 12,690.
