Vehicle

2002 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS 2WD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

Review

The second day I had it I took it on a long trip to Florida and the AC froze up after 2 hours. I got no support from the dealer of course. I've replaced compressor, checked for leaks, replaced sensors...nothing works, can't take it on trips longer than 2 hours when I need AC. Also have had to replace O2 sensor 3 times. Was in shop for almost 3 months straight when I first bought it. Warranty is not transferable if bought used. Would never buy one ever again.

Favorite Features

Is fun to drive when it's working.

Suggested Improvements

Better quality parts. Transferable warranty. Dealer who stands behind its company's vehicles.

it is inside the cab of the car. It is the Temperature Control Module. 2002 all wheel drive Hyundai Santa Fe will burn up A/C compressors until the Temperature Control Module is fixed.

in fact, all A/C's begin repair at this point. i.e. it is inside the cab of the car. It is the Temperature Control Module. 2002 all wheel drive Hyundai Santa Fe will burn up A/C compressors until the Temperature Control Module is fixed.
