After repeatedly complaining about the jerking shift on our 2010 SF, the dealership finally replaced the transmission.
The replacement was okay for a while, but it seemed as soon as the cooler weather hit, we started having a new problem.
Now the vehicle seems to shift "down" when coasting in lower gears.
Now the downshift is accentuated by "missing", causing the engine to red-line when attempting to overtake another vehicle attempting 15kpm speed increase.
Waiting to hear ... again ... how Hyundai will be resolving this.
The SF has 45K on it.
Our previous vehicles had 250+km and 350+km on original drive trains.
This is not what I was looking for in a new vehicle.
We bought a 2010 Santa Fe after being very pleased with dh's 2010 Elantra Touring.
The vehicle is pretty much exactly what we were looking for, except for the transmissions problems.
