#1 - Gasoline Fuel System problem of the 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe
The vehicle was a 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe. The VIN of this vehicle is KM8SC13D84_. I purchased the car used on Aug. 10, 2012. I went to gas station on Aug. 12, 2012 to fill it up with gas, and had trouble starting it afterward. I have had the same problem everytime I have put gas in it since, and it does not make a difference which gas station I go to, I have the same trouble. I even tried to leave it running one time and it ended up dying and had trouble restarting. I have to push the gas pedal all the way to the floor and hold it there to start it and keep pumping the gas pedal as I pull away from the gas pump and for several seconds after I pull away it is still trying to die. I have filled up with gas about 5 times since I purchased the vehicle and every time I have had the same problem. The only time it has a problem starting is while I am sitting at the gas pump. Once I leave there, it starts fine everytime until I stop to get gas again. I am writing this on sept. 24, 2012. This issue happened on Sunday, August 12, 2012.

#2 - Gasoline Fuel System problem of the 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe
The vehicle having this issue was a 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe. Sudden unintended acceleration. While driving my vehicle, the car "lurches" forward and the engine "reves" up. I've had it to the mechanic numerous times and they can not seem to find a reason for this to be happening. It is a very scary situation. I have 2 small children and have become fearful when driving my car. This happens on the highway as well as regular street roads. I've seen many forums on line with the same complaints from other Hyundai owners. I really hope that someone looks into these complaints. It was Monday, Nov. 7, 2011 when this gasoline fuel system issue occurred.

#4 - Gasoline Fuel System problem of the 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe
The vehicle involved is a 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe. The gas mileage on my vechicle is 14 mpg city driving; total highway driving is 18mpg and combined 15- 16 mpg. I am a very conservative driver and have driven for 47 years. My mileage is so poor I contacted the Hyundai corp. Repeatedly on this. I've spoken on a few occasions with the ceo j. Krafcik, and corresponded with him as well via email after getting no satisfaction/help from the regional person. The ceo's wife grew up in my area (lake oswego, or. ) and that is why he called me personally. However, the bottom line was nothing has happened as a result of this call. He offered me the following: he offered to exchange my vehicle which had about 8,000 miles on it by the time he got in touch with me for a new 2009 sonata fwd and it was the old model as Hyundai was coming out with a totally revamped 2010 sonata model. I bought my Santa Feawd because I wanted a SUV with awd! if I wanted a sedan, I would have bought one! I begged him to give me another comparably equipped Santa Fe as they could find no reason mechanically why my mileage was so low and I always double check it manually in addition to the computer output. So, I refused to accept this offer and I spend a huge amount on gas and I live on a small fixed income and cannot afford to buy another Santa Fe! others I've questioned with the same vehicle and equipped comparably get 20 mpg or more city driving. Reading Hyundai has done nothing about so many issues brought up is abominable. Someone needs to do something about this so lives aren't lost and people aren't paying at almost $4/gallon for all this gas I have to keep buying in my case. There is definitely something major wrong with my engine or something that prevents me from getting the mileage I should. As I said, I am a very conservative driver. Please intervene with the manufacturer on all these matters. They truly don't care about consumers. It was Thu., Feb. 14, 2008 when this gasoline fuel system issue happened.

#5 - Gasoline Fuel System problem of the 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe
The car was a 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is 5NMSG3AB6A_. When pushing the gas pedal to accelerate from stopped position there is a notable pause. (1-3 seconds??)this then causes you to push accelerator further ,thereby causing a much more sudden acceleration. I am used to it because it has happened intermittently since car was new, but someone could get in trouble. Hyundai service says its because the pedal is sending a position of pedal through an electronic signal to fuel metering system. This problem occurred on 07/06/11.

#7 - Gasoline Fuel System problem of the 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe
I purchased a Hyundai, not even one month ago. December 12th 2010. VIN
[xxx] Hyundai Santa Fe 2011
it is supposed to get 20-26 miles per gallon. While driving the highway from florida to nc it got 15 miles to the gallon. On the way back the same thing. In addition the transmission was not right, the car would not shift and made a horrible noise several times. We did not think we would get home. It would not shift at all. I took it to the local Hyundai service center and reported it to Hyundai. They claim there is nothing wrong and that the car just needs to be broken in. I went on line and saw many consumers had the same complaints and Hyundai ignored theirs as well. I don't know where to turn. I never heard of a car needing to be broken in. The mileage is a lie. The car is not getting what they claim it should and others have reported the same thing to Hyundai. There appears to be a transmission problem with my car and with those of other consumers and they refuse to help. Can you help me please?

#8 - Gasoline Fuel System problem of the 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe
The car involved was a 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe. Shortly after purchasing our 2008 Hyundai sante fe limited we began having a problem which still exist to this day. After filling with gas, the "check engine" light will come on and stay lit. The first several times of this event, I was truly concerned that I had an engine problem and returned to the dealer only to find out that the gas cap needed to be tightened further. I have tightened the cap at times so much so that I very nearly was unable to remove it. It was Jul. 6, 2008 when this gasoline fuel system issue happened.
#9 - Gasoline Fuel System problem of the 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe
Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 5NMSG13D58_. 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe accelerator sensor went bad while entering the interstate. The car only went 20 mph. If I had been on the interstate, I could have been rear ended and caused a major pile up, or been killed. I contacted the dealer and a new part was installed, but found out there is not a cable connected to the accelerator. The sensor runs the gas input, without a back up in case of failure. It was Tuesday, December 1, 2009 when this gasoline fuel system issue happened.
#10 - Gasoline Fuel System problem of the 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe
On our 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe limited with 45,391 miles, VIN # [xxx], the check engine light started coming on when it was about 1 year old. It has now come on approximately 10 times. The dealer always says it's the gas cap. We have tightened the gas cap varying degrees and it does not matter how tight it is. The check engine light continues to come on. They claim to have replaced the gas cap 3 times out of 10 trips. Whether that is true or not, I don't know. Additionally, the red "air bag" warning light came on about a week ago and will not go off. I understand Hyundai has a history of airbag problems and would like to know if you can force them to fix this problem as well as the check engine light.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe. Surging. Sometimes when applying brakes, feels like you are also laying on the gas pedal. Other times, when just barely accelerating, it's like taking off at the starting line. Real surging, it's scary. My wife doesn't like driving it because of this problem. The service tech's at the dealer says nothing is wrong, that it is designed to do this. I find that to be stupid, or not true. The failure date was Wednesday, Jun. 18, 2008.

The vehicle was a 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe. On a frequent basis I can smell gasoline fumes in the vehicle interior while driving. When I asked the dealership about the fumes they acted like it was normal, and did not investigate the problem. If the fire wall around the vehicle is intact how can fumes get into the vehicle interior? they did suggest it may be caused by an air lock in the system.

The vehicle was a 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe. The VIN of this vehicle is KM8SB12B83_. The vehicle for the last 3 years was not getting the gas mileage suggested by manufacturer. It was taken repeatedly to dealer where we were told, "everything checked out just fine". All maintenance was done as required by dealer". As car became more sluggish and finally quit running altogether- we took it to an outside mechanic and learned that the catalytic converter had gone bad. I checked the internet and this is a common complaint with this vehicle- dealers are repairing transmissions and emission controls and customers are still complaining about bad gas mileage, sluggish vehicles. Now that the catalytic converter has been replaced- the car is getting the correct gas mileage and running better. The failure date was Sun., Oct. 10, 2010.
