Put it into park and restared it and drove it to a parking spot. Later that day was able to drive it to the dealership; they have had it for 4 days (2 of which were over the weekend). No codes registered in the computer system; they are waiting to hear from a Hyundai tech. According to research online, this is a common (and dangerous) problem with the Santa Fe. Prior to this episode, on 2 other occasions (9/13/13 and 8/3/2012), was driving the vehicle at 70mpg and 50mph respectively and lost power and the ability to keep or increase my speed and had to pull over and get towed to the dealership, both times.

#10 - Car Stall problem of the 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe
I have had the same problem with my 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe reported in other odi complaints. Specifically, my vehicle stalls randomly while traveling at low speeds. Odi id #10460671, #10453272, and #10412636, all seem to report the same problem I have. Occasionally, while braking or allowing the car to stop, it will stall out. When it does, accelerating, power steering, and power braking are all disabled. Once the car gear is shifted to park and the ignition is turned off, the problem resolves after re-starting the car later. The dealership service department had worked on this car for the same problem four times without being able to 1. Diagnose the problem and 2. Come up with an adequate remedy. Even though the technicians have not been able to reproduce the stalling, the first three times it was in the shop, three different repairs were made. They have all involved computer fixes, including changing out the contacts, replacing the junction box, and updating software. Hyundai is aware of my issue and the pending lemon law arbitration claim that I have made. Hyundai has currently made the unilateral determination that this vehicle does not qualify as a lemon, which I dispute because 1. This determination is not capable of being made unilaterally, and 2. This is a serious safety defect and more than a "reasonable" amount of repair attempts have been unsuccessful. A managing engineer has examined the vehicle without finding any problems, and I'm currently working with Hyundai to have a "flight recorder" installed to record data when the car stalls next. The most recent occurrence was while I was driving in heavy traffic without a shoulder on the freeway--a life-threatening situation. I consider this car to be an unreliable safety threat on the roadways and have communicated this to Hyundai, but its representative do not have the same sense of urgency I have. It was Monday, March 26, 2012 when this car stall issue happened.

#16 - Car Stall problem of the 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe
The VIN of this vehicle was KM8SC73D33_. On 10/23/04, my 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe with 21,600 miles, began to experience a very low idle and then stalled out each time I had to stop at a stop sign or a stop light. I could start the vehicle without a problem each time but as soon as I would shift into "drive", the car would repeat the low idle/stall out process and I could not move the car an inch. The car had to be flatbed towed to the dealership. The dealership said they drove the car and hooked the car up to the computer but could not duplicate or find a reason for the problem. On 10/29/04, two days after I picked the car up from the dealership with a clean bill of health, the exact same scenario occurred again and the car was again flatbed towed to a different dealership to try to get another mechanic's view of the situation. They also could not duplicate the problem and nothing was found wrong with the car. I am unable to rely on this vehicle but am frustrated that 2 different Hyundai dealerships cannot seem to discover the problem. They keep telling me "there is nothing wrong with the car". It was Saturday, October 23, 2004 when this car stall issue happened.
