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.

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.

|canderson||Well, it's an odd combination. Engine "would not restart" is rarely a reason for a transmission replacement. Would really like to know what was written up on the work order by way of explanation. Let us know when you get a chance.|

|BrianJ||unfortunately no, my wife was driving it and had cut her errands short because the car "didn't feel right" and she wanted to get it home. While accelerating into traffic it made a strange noise, the engine stopped, and it would not restart. Hyundai Assistance sent out a tow, it went to the dealer (this was a Saturday evening), and on Monday the dealer looked at it and ordered a new tranny. It would start, but the tranny was no good. That's as good a description as I can give.|

|BrianJ||First time poster, hello all. Bought a used 2010, 3.5 automatic, with only 21,000 km on it, a couple of months ago, built Dec 09. Other than a mild shudder when accelerating lightly at around 40kmh, it worked fine, no service history on the transmission. After 23 days, car died while driving in the city and was towed to dealer. New transmission installed, don't have it back yet so can"t comment on new tranny. Thank goodness for the long warranty or I'd be extremely ticked off now. Dealer being very good about it.|

|jzweig||Fantastic news - we took the vehicle back in to be checked. On the first day they were unable to replicate the issue. We left a second day and they were able to replicate in the afternoon. Reman transmission is on order, being installed in a couple weeks. Very pleased!|
