Are you both using the diesel engine Santa Fe's? - if so are you waiting for the glow plug indicator to go out. I have found that if you stop the car, then try restarting it that you have to wait longer for the glow plug indicator to go out.

If you try starting a diesel engine before the glow plugs have warmed up properly it will start very roughly. As the car gets older - the glow plugs will take longer to reach optimum temperature - a new car should only take about 2 seconds to reach temperature at 10 degrees Celcius. If it takes longer than about 30 seconds the replace the glow plugs.

Anyone like to confirm C-DUBYA's information.
Have the two people with these complaints persued these issues with their dealers yet? Have these problems been rectified?
