I'm considering a 2019 but concerned about the 2.4 engine. I cant get answers from Hyundai as to what changes are done to the 2019 engines. Anyone getting limp error codes? I know they expended the 953 campaign recently.

I have the 2.4 engine in my 2019 santa fe with the campaign done. I haven't had any error codes or engine issues before or after the campaign. I have about 20000kms on the car

There have been fires on the 2019 Tuscon and Sportage both using the same engine. But I haven't heard of fires on the Sante Fe. Maybe the bigger size helps prevent them?

Although there are no public numbers given by Kia/Hyundai, even adding all of the engine incidents (fire, limp mode, error codes, etc) the rate of failure is still very low and likely to be less than 5% of all engines out there. Plus you get a very long warranty (in some cases lifetime) for any related problems.

FWIW, just as we were trading our Subaru for the Hyundai we got a service campaign notice for the Subaru engine, so no manufacturer is immune from such things, but the chances of a problem is still quite low.

I saw a post about a year ago or so of someone having to have there engine replaced.
Yea I recall that. It happens sadly, and the person who owns the car usually gets screwed by not having a car for a long while. It is a rare occurrence though. A bad major component slips through occasionally.

Is this the one you were thinking of? I remembered it from last Christmas and it popped up quick using advanced search. Is ":Thedavephan" still around???

They could not get the car fixed, even with an entire new engine the problem recurred within 3 days and I hired a lawyer.
Nice to hear you were taken care of. But your statement about the new engine makes no sense! Sounds like they got the two mixed up and put your original back in by mistake! <img src="http://www.hyundai-forums.com/images/smilies/confused.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Confused" class="inlineimg" />
No mistake. They put an entire new engine in and the exact same thing happened 3 days later. Whether or not they actually put the new engine in, is anyone’s guess but that’s what I was told and what the paperwork says. Not sure if there was another component they weren’t replacing that was making the engine fail over and over or not. But either way it’s done I’ve already “surrendered” it to my dealer. Hope the next one is as good as everyone else’s 🍀🍀

Yup that’s the one. He Just got unlucky I guess. All car manufacturers have problem cars that come off the line. I don’t think he’s posted since, Hyundai probably bought out his car.
