Hyundai Santa Fe owners have reported 3 problems related to front suspension wheel bearing (under the suspension category).
I have had a squeaking noise in the tires for several months. I continued to take it to Hyundai and they told me that the tire needed to be replaced and charged me. The squeaking noise was still on the driver's side, so I took it back and they replaced 2 wheel bearings, one in the front and one in the back. Most people know that once changing one you could change all the other on the same side . They refused. I heard a squeaking noise now more than ever, and they claimed they could not hear it. The longer you drive the vehicle the louder it got. This was really costing me my time , and Hyundai dealers did not care about a noise was getting louder. They will not even go over my vehicle anymore when I brought it in. They just stated well we did not know what it was. . I have take the vehicle to two different dealers, and neither one of them took the time. All they wanted was more money for stuff that did not need to be replaced.
