canderson Yours is post #609 on page 61 in a thread called "Transmission Problems With New 2010 Santa Fe" and you're wondering if 2010 tranny failures are common? Truthfully, no, it's not 'common' or there would be 6,090 posts here instead of 609. But it's frequent enough to have caused grief for quite a few folks here. Glad to hear they will be managing this by replacement. Read back through just the early parts of the thread and you'll find that your shift 'clunk' is the symptom associated with the problem.

Transmission replacement

We have a 2010 AWD Santa Fe sport V6 we bought new. It only has 39,000 kilometres or 24,000 miles on it. We have serviced it regularly getting service every 3 months. In the spring and fall we have a special service offered by the dealer.
In the past month we noticed that there was a hard shift everytime we started off from a stop. It sounded like we hit a bump in the road. I know that the vehicle starts off in AWD from a stop and moves to 2WD once it gets going. I thought the issues was the AWD disengaging.
The service department just called to tell me the issue is the transmission and that they will have to replace it.
Are transmission failures common for this vehicle?

Cubbyguy This week my 2010 has been having hard shift from 2 to 3. Time to call the dealer and quote the TSB 10-AT-006.

How do you fix this

I've read most of this very long thread and most peple have fixed this doing a flash of the computer at the dealer.

How else can the computer be reset without taking it to the dealer? What If I disconnect the battery or something else?

The issue is that my car is imported (USA) and the local hyundai dealer only services korean spec santa fe....

canderson @wisckir
If you read back through this thread (yeah, awfully long), you'll find that some owners' problems were evidently remedied well enough through a reflash of the code, and for some, that didn't work and they were dealt replacement transmissions. The only way you'll know which way you have to go is to have the dealer update the code to see if it can slam your solenoids home as needed, or whether they'll still stick.

wisckir I have the same problem. Loss of power, big thunk, car has 80,000 kms. Did yours get fixed?

wisckir [QUOTE=chucky1382;1239244]I found this site that lists all the TSB's for different Santa Fe years. The link is for a 2010. In which is it stated on there TSB 12-AT-012. Date of Bulletin is May 1, 2012. Which states "automatic transaxle harsh and/or delayed shift - gds analysis." I also found TSB TSB 11AT011-2. Date of Bulletin is Jul 1, 2011. It states "2010-2011 santa fe. Automatic transaxle software update."

I'm scheduling my car for the next couple of days. Hopefully they fix my hard shifting...

Same problem as you and Lseven. Did it get fixed?

canderson Find a dealer who IS familiar with the transmission issues on pre-August 2010 builds, or insist that they contact the District Manager about this issue. SURELY they recognize that there is a TSB for this issue?

Santa Fe 2010 Transmission problems

I bought my car new in May 2010. The car frequently engages in a hard shift for no reason. It can happen when I am sitting at a redlight or when I am driving slowly. The first time it happened, I thought I had been rear-ended by another car. I took it back to the dealer. They kept it 5 days but said they could not duplicate the problem, so nothing was done. The car continues to have the transmission problem. I complained to the dealer again and put it back in the shop. Still, no problems were found. I am forced to just live with the faulty transmission.

On two occassions, the car was stuck in first gear. The first time it happened, only weeks after buying the vehicle, I contacted the saleman at the dealership. He told me not to worry because if the car broke down, Hyundai was have it towed at no charge. Wow.

I am very disappointed in the car's performance and the lack of concern from Hyundai. It's my first new car and I feel duped.

new tranny

Got the car back from repair after it died and was towed, here goes: codes c1283 yaw rate and g snsr c1702 variant coding error b1102 battery voltage low, also found vehicle unable to move and found lots of transmission grinding and slipping but found no leaking. The transmission was replaced, can't say what failed as they send it intact back to Hyundai, and as well the right inner and outer axle shafts were replaced as it would not seat properly in the new tranny. So far so good since it came back, once again thank goodness for the warranty. We don't drive it a lot and don't drive it hard, so if anything else were to be wrong it might not show up for awhile. The dealer wonders about the initial tow, I wasn't there, but the tow was sent by Hyundai Assistance; it was not a flat deck but sounds like dollies were put on the wheels.
