Was there a recall on my daughter's hyundai santa fe because of the transmission or axles it just stopped pulling and makes a whining sound when you put it in gear. If so what should I do
She was on her way home from work and
stopped at red light and pulled off then the
car just dropped pulling and it starts fine
bbut when I put it in drive it just whines and
want move like somthing came lose or
broke. Thank you joseph stephenson
I can't find a Santa Fe tranny recall- seems like they have bad springs, tho- (bad springs?!) you just have the ordinary blown Korean tranny- bottom line- I would want my daughter in something more substantial than a Hyundai- and that doesn't mean go buy a Kia-
When my Grandaughter grows up I want her in a Humvee , not those wanna-be Hummers H3 either. Just kidding actually, too much footprint on Mother Earth..but something substantial, some middle ground between a gas-guzzler polluting tank and a..ahem..Kia

Good work- that driveshaft recall should be checked- you are an ultimately competent Guru- as for a safe car, my daughter survived 2 major crashes (neither her fault) in a '98 New Beetle- that car was a crash star and I will forever be grateful to VW for engineering that car!
