    Hi

    Only had this 3 months. It rained liked mad when we picked it up and I noticed the passenger mat & carpet underneath was wet. I put this down to the fact that I'm disabled, so wife has to do all in/out of car and we were transferring lots of items to new caravan, so lots of trips and lots of in/out for the wife. We put the wet carpet down to this.
    Then we went away until late October, never saw any rain (believe it or not) until we came back home a couple of weeks ago.
    Now we have noticed passenger mat & carpet wet again, but nowhere else.
    Any ideas??
  • Is it just me or are the dashboard lights too bright - especially on a dark road they seem blinding. Seems to me to be a very dangerous situation. Even turned all the way down they are too bright and they can't be shut off.
  • i have a 2008 santa fe when it rains water leaks in right over emergency brake. i have no sunroof. has anyone had a problem with windsheild leaking

    I had a 2010 Sante Fe that starting leaking in that same area within 4 days of driving it off the lot. My dealer did not believe me and was not very helpful in determining what the problem was. Finally they found out that my windshield was not set correctly and so they replaced it. That seemed to clear up that problem - there were many other issues with the cars' electrical system and air conditioner. The last straw was an electrical component in the starter went in Jan 2012... 16 months of ownership -I traded for a new Murano.
  • Have a 2010 Santa Fe Limited that has had a similar AC problem since I bought it. When it's rainy, the AC shuts off after about a half hour. Dealer says I need to bring it in when that happens because everything looks fine. Dealer is 35 miles away, and it usually happens when dealer is closed, so that hasn't happened. Have you had any resolution yet?

    yes - it was fixed after much hell raising w/ Hyundia USA..... it was a faulty actuator. ask your dealer to contact the corporate service people - they should know about this as it is now a known problem.
  • Nope. I arrested my pick on the Santa Fe in 2008 because it has the biggest cargo space of the category, especially w. the 5 passenger configuration but in no way 1 (or 2) bikes will fit upright. If you remove both wheels, you can pile them up in the cargo area w/o taking the rr seats down or you can flip the rr seats down, remove only the front wheels and pile them up. If you don't want to dismantle your bikes, your only options are to buy a roof or hitch rack or to buy a minivan. Mines fit perfectly in my 4-wheel shed, a 1999 Chevy Venture. :-)
  • Hi, I have exactly the same problem with wet passenger footwell. I was advised that this is likely to be a sunroof problem. I tested by pouring water down the pipes, the rght one was good but the left one was showing water but not as much. This could inicate a leak inn this pipe. The work involved to check this is quite expensive with several components needign removal. Did anyone find the solution to this.
    Thanks Vicshane
  • mine turned out to be the windshield was inserted incorrectly - they replaced windshield and it went away. this was jsut one of the many problems this SUV had... after 1. years fo trouble traded for a murano by Nissan... LOVE 1 year ownership- not one issue!

  • I am torn between a 2008 AWD Limited with 47k miles and a 2009 FWD Limited with 22k. Has anyone had a problem with their AWD? Also, is there a significant difference between the 08 and 09 mechanically or otherwise?
  • Water on floor was well hidden by thick sound insulation and carpet - further by the rubber backed floor mat. Must have been a gallon of water for long time. Source of leak was covered by interior trim. Cause of leak was rubber bushing for hood release cable that is routed through the fender/wheel well. It normally gets the rain from the hood hinge area (lots-o-water from windshield) that is drained into the left front fender. Removed the protector in the wheel well and packed the bushing with silicone sealant at the fender wall.
