Question about Hyundai Cars & Trucks

2 Answers

My daughter purchased a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe.. She has told me that the steering will get very difficult to turn while she is driving down the road.

The engine stays running, brakes are good. Its like she loses power steering.

Hi, could be power steering pump, some sign of this is hevy steering and check to see if you can hear any wining from the pump when moveing steering from lock to lock, also check level of fluid and condition of fluid first, if it looks old try replacing fluid before pump, hope this was some help.

SOURCE: just purchased 2002 Hyundai Santa

I had a similar prob with my 2003 sante fe. It turned out that a plastic panel under the front end had fallen off and now water spalses onto the steering belt and makes it difficult to steer. I need a new spalsh panel (about $300 new/ a lot less from a junkyard and it looks easy yo install)

SOURCE: 2009 Hyunda Santa Fe stalls while driving

I had a similar problem with my Santa Fe. It occurred intermittently but after I turned the steering wheel to the left. After much screwing around by the dealer and trying to baffle me with BS we heard about a strange solution. I am not a mechanic but the problem somehow related to a spring in the Airbag on the steering wheel. Changed the spring and "Stone the flame'n crows" problem solved. Never had a problem since.

I just bought my 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe. I looked for an owners manual and you know it did not have one My question is the car and all wheel drive or is it does it have a switch somewhere that I have not...


The Santa Fe AWD (All Wheel Drive) is just that. There are no switches, no levers, it is in All Wheel Drive constantly. It is not really classed as a 4/wheel drive as in "all terrain", it is a road vehicle with the ability to handle various road condtions (mine travels through snow pretty darned good) but it is not an off road thing.

Sure sounds like its low of fluid or the filter is very dirty! My guess is that it works well driving straight open road. Most often the filter is inside the pump. Frankster016
