2013 santa fe sport 2.4l awd purchased jan. 2013. I only have 5000 miles on the car and have had the throttle issue 4 times. It has only happened on hot days, 95+degrees. It seems to happen when you are getting ready to say make a left turn, one foot on the brake and you hit the throttle only to have nothing happen for a second or two.agree very discomforting! Naturally I cant duplicate this for the dealer because it happens so rarely. As far the the steering issues, I have had absolutely none. The car steers straight as an arrow on the highway or in town. I must have got lucky on that issue because i read many complaints about the steering.....So far ,I really like this car!Report it
I had the accelerator problem since reporting it to the dearlership. They cleaned the map sensor and it seemed ok for awhile. Now it is worse than ever. It also happens when you are in traffic and go to move ahead and the car just launches ahead and if you are not ready you will rear end the car in front of you. It is definitely a problem. I think that I will try once more at the dealership and make a decision after that whether to sell or try something else. We are using premium on every second fill and using a gas additive.Report it
I also forgot to advise that there is a class action lawsuit that has been awarded to owners of 2013 and 2014 Hyundai's regarding false advertising about gas mileage. Check it out on the web under Hyundai class action. I filed my application two weeks ago and have not heard anything yet.Report it
