In recent months, several complaints from those who own or lease a 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe have arisen, the bulk of which pertain to powertrain and engine malfunctions. Multiple reports of engines shutting down completely while the vehicles were in motion have been lodged by concerned customers. So far, six separate safety recalls have been announced by the manufacturer, two of which concern engine defects. However, some affected customers have not yet obtained the recommended repairs, while others have received the repairs but continue to experience powertrain issues.
The owner of a 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe described a harrowing situation in which their vehicle was traveling at a speed of 65 miles per hour. Suddenly, the engine shut down completely, with no warning. Fortunately, the driver was able to move the vehicle to safety, but the experience caused the driver considerable fear. Similar reports of engine failures and transmissions that seem to struggle, lag, or fail entirely continue to arise, despite a lack of acknowledgement or response from the manufacturer.
