Having problems with your Hyundai Cars & Trucks ?

I have a 2001 Hyundai Sante Fe. I live in Tampa, Fl. The suv is not garaged. The paint (black) has all but come off. What are my options??

\015 I was told the undercoating for that year was not good. Shouldn't Hyundai recall this SUV??\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Answers :

None but to have it repainted. As far as a recall don't hold your breath on that, you are the very first complaint I've read about this, so I'll assume it is not a widespread problem. The vehicle is 11 years old so any help is doubtful from the factory.

Why does my TCS and ABS lights come on while driving? I can find no button to not use these options. I drive a 2001 Hyundai Sante Fe. Are they supposed to come on automatically?


Agree with these solutions as posted. However just to add - on some vehicles the TCS light will illuminate momentarily in conditions of poor traction e.g if you are going up a snow covered hill and the vehicle hits a slippery spot the TCS light may i ... 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe

I purchased my Endeavor in 2004, and it has been garage kept since then. This past year I noticed the paint fading really bad on the hood and on top. My dealership nearby where I take my car to get serviced quite frequently for oil changes, told me they would check to see if there was a recall on black Endeavors. I have always had good service and never had a call back. He was going to check to see if they could re-paint or touch-up my car. I'm very upset due to the fact that I paid a lot of mon

I just had my muffler/exhaust system changed at a garage. Before I brought the car in it was loud, but otherwise ran fine. Since I picked my car up I have noticed that now it struggles to reach cruising speed, sputters and feels like it is going to die. Sometimes it puffs out black smoke out of the pipe and now I am burning gas like crazy! when I step on the gas pedal the car struggles to go, before it was a nice smooth sound coming form my muffler, but now it sounds like some heavy muscle car


Sounds like they choked up your exhaust to much. What you needed was a quieter muffler. Buy having an exhuast that is to small on your car it will kill gas mileage and power. Most mitsbishis like a 2 1/2" exhaust, and if your have a turbo motor anyth ... 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse
