Great performance, transmission issues = RED FLAG!
This SUV can go, and go fast, which is great.
This SUV looks great on the outside - Silver is nice, but I do wish I could have gotten it in blue.
This SUV looks great on the inside, rides smooth, and handles wonderfully.
This SUV has transmission issues.
In fact, Santa Fe models have been known for transmission issues.
Before buying this SUV, ask yourself if it's worth totaling your car at 70 MPH because your transmission kicked out with only a few thousand miles on the car. If your answer is "Yes, it's worth it!" then you are ballsier than I am. If your answer is, "No, are you serious?" yes, yes I am serious. Do your online research FIRST. Hyundai's response when I reached out about this was "If we can't reproduce the issue, we can't fix it. We'll have the car re-learn all its shift points and see if that helps." It did not help. Hyundai does not have a fix for this. To be fair, I understand where they're coming from, but all the understanding in the world doesn't matter if you're crunched in a vehicle and bleeding out on the highway. Things like that happen every day across the country. Do you want to take that risk? Hyundai: Transmission issues were demonstrated in your '21 Santa Fe. The fact you let them continue to your '22 Santa Fe's is unacceptable.
