"Company says 290 Santa Fe models have experienced problems with cylinder liners, but it has no plans for a recall."
January 8, 2002
By CHRIS KNAP and ELIZABETH AGUILERAThe Orange County Register
"Halper said...Hyundai did not report the problems to NHTSA because the company doesn't believe it is a safety issue."
Now mind you this regards hundreds of Santa Fe engines suddenly and without warning breaking down 100% and needing a complete engine swap.
Let's say you were on the highway or freeway... driving your family with the wife and two small infants (The Twins) plus Grandpa and Grandma... both with heart conditions...and your Santa Fe dies at 70 mph in the middle of the road...in the middle of nowhere at night...in the freezing cold and rain and sleet...so what'sHyundai's official response, considering the fact that they KNEW THE ENGINES were defective? -
"Don't worry, it's not a safety issue."
Of course, you have their 100k drivetrain warranty - so why worry?
