i had the truck at the dealer to check on some hesitation from the transmission and after checking it was determined that the eco mode was having a hard time downshifting because the coupler was not disengaging or something.
So faulty coupler...
That part is $1800Cad!!!!
what the heck is it made of?
Luckily I have extended warranty and it was covered.
The part prices of autos is ridiculous.
Rant over.

At that price it's probably the all-wheel drive coupler at the front of the rear differential. Yours must be AWD since you live in Canada. Your aftermarket warranty just paid for itself.

Right on the money. :)
The extended warranty lasts until feb 2019 so Im going to squeeze all I can out of it.

From 2010 onwards Hyundai went with a different coupler. I am not sure of the difference between what the 2009 and earlier used. But the number of failure spiked a lot for the newer build. They function the same from what I understand but the part or make is different.

You lucked out on that call going to the dealer on it!!!
I didnt want a repeat of the 2010 SF that cost me a transmission.
I started to feel that it was not smooth switching and hesitated shifting up or down.

This is my second SF and it will probably be the last one. I am disapointed with the quality of these vehicles considering what they cost at the time when they were new. Poor control quality,
