My SF stalled on a slow speed right turn. No engine code was produced. Anyone else experienced this problem? It is a 2011 Limited.
Slow speed stalling on right turn. No engine code light produced. All very sudden with no
warning signs or sounds. Dealer asks like I am delusional.
Also with a 2011 Limited. Has stalled three times in the seven months we've had it. Bought it new. Completely dies- no engine lights or anything. If I turn the car off and then back on, it seems fine. I've taken the car back in to the dealership where it was purchased (and serviced) and they've held it for at least a week each time, claiming they've done everything Hyundai reps have told them to do. They're telling me the car is ready to be picked up, and that they can't find anything wrong. Has happened when I was driving (accelerating after a red light), while my husband was driving (going over a speed bump), and once in traffic- slowly accelerating. Really dangerous, especially with two little kids in the car. Dealership has told me they have no reason to hold the car, and if I want to I can call the 1-800 number for Hyundai. Looking into the Lemon Law. Any further issues with your car? Also had a lot of problems with the rear view camera/radio (not turning on), synching phones, right front tire seems to spin when accelerating at right turns etc. They said they have replaced the radio since I've dropped the car off, but couldn't find any other problems. The stalling is my main concern, for safety reasons, but too many issues for a new car!
2012 santa fe limited... Stalled while driving very slowly in parking lot. Less than 6000 miles on it. Disturbing. Will call Hyundai.
I've had the same thing happen to my in my new Veloster. I'll be taking a ramp from one freeway to another, going 60 miles an hour and apply a bit of brakes and my engine turns off. I have to pull over obviously then turn off the car... then it turns right back on again. It's terrifying. The care is less than a year old. It's happened twice. I'm going to be rearended soon . Hyundai will love paying for those injuries.
I have a 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS. I purchased it in Feb. 2012. My car stalled on my three times already and each time I bought it to Hyundai to find the problem. The first time, I was at a stop sign and the car suddenly stalled. The second time, I was driving about 20 mph looking for a parking space. In the middle of the block, the car just stalled. The third time, I was going about 15 mph making a left turn then all of the sudden my the engine stalls and my steering wheel got really tight so I ended up at the side of the street where the bus usually stops. Each time this happened though, the car started right up and was running fine. Each time Hyundai said they couldn't find the problem. There were no codes that showed up when they ran the test on it. I've reported this to the Office of Defects Investigations and to Hyundai America. I don't feel safe driving this car plus I drive my family around all the time. Hyundai needs to give us a new car since there aren't that many cases yet. They can afford it. They need to do something before someone gets hurt or killed.
there are so many reasons why the engine stalls, 1st system to check is the ignition system, if there is no problem there, try to check the fuel system, then the EGR, and the last is the crankshaft position sensor.. RJ ( automotive engineering student)
I have had the same problem with my 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe limited. The first time it happened I stopped at a stop sign and the engine just flat died. Started right up again. Tonight I was making a slow right turn and the engine died in the middle of the turn. The third situation is that I was in line on a steep parking garage ramp and the engine did not die but when I stepped on the gas to move forward the engine would not accelerate. I put it in neutral and gunned the engine and then it worked. There is a definite problem with these cars and sooner or later there is going to be an associated accident.
My husband was driving our 2011 Santa Fe about 65 MPH today on a state highway when the engine jerked hard for a second or so, seemed to shut off and then start up again. We heard a loud clunking noise as if the bottom was falling out. I was rocketed forward kind of hard, but was unhurt. Very scary! We slowed down and drove the car directly home. Thankfully, we made it back safely. My husband plans to take the car to the dealer tomorrow. If we discover anything I will pass it along. But has anyone had this kind of problem? EMWard
We ha e been having the same problem with our 2011 Santa Fe and there are also a few others from our town having the same stalling at low speeds problem. We have phoned the customer service but that is an exercise in frustration as they are only paying lip service and we can't talk to any managers or anyone that can help us. Our dealer here has been good enough to lend us a car but we have been without our car for two months now. I refuse to drive this unsafe car with my grandchildren in it and Hyundai is doing nothing for us. They have had the mechanics driving our car and another fellows 2012 Santa Fe for the past two months and we still do not have any answers. How long is this going to go on for? We are seriously thinking of contacting Market Place or the ITeam regarding this matter. Has anyone else done this yet? We are not happy with the way Hyundai Canada is treating us.
own a 2013 and have had the same problem with loss of power. took it to the dealer today. Tech said he found a service notice that talked about a similar problem and required that the carburator software be updated (carburator is now called a Turbo something or other). Won't know if it solved the problem unless the problem happens again...dangerous situation.
Oh no, we just traded our 2011 Santa Fe in on a 2013 Santa Fe as I was afraid to drive our 2011 one as it kept stalling. There is no way Hyundai will give you a new car as we had to buy the new one.....grrrrrrr
parents have 2012 santa fe limited...stalled 5 times within first year...taken to dealer last 3 times...each time they say they've fixed it with last time saying they consulted tech people at Hyundai Canada...anyone else have a fair resolution?
We have had the same problem with stalling on our 2011 Santa Fe. At first it kept saying we were out of gas and then it kept stalling when we slowed down for turns. After 2 months at the dealers we have traded it in on a 2013 Santa Fe and we are just hoping the same thing doesn't happen.
Lappy, if i may ask, what was the price difference to trade in for a 2013?
