2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


I have owned this car for 1100 km's and so far the two front seats needed to be repaired as they came lose and wobbled.
But my biggest problem is the car has no heat in the rear vents.
An issue for car owners in Canada!
Took it to the dealership and they said it was a design issue and nothing they could do?
So, I am stuck with a car that doesn't heat the back-half of the car.
Actually it blows cold air, which makes it worse.
The car looks great, but stay away from this one, looks are deceiving.

Leafsrule...I had the same issue and I couldn't find any documentation on how this feature is supposed to work. At first my dealer didn't know how this was supposed to operate and kept telling me to push buttons that didn't exist. As it turns out, you need to turn on recirculation for hot air to blow through the back vents. Here's my review of this situation: http://hyundaisantefereview.com/sante-fe-2nd-row-vents-only-blow-cold-air/
