Seems a recall is coming for 2001 V-6. Crankshaft position sensor failure can result in engine stalls.
Would anyone know how many Santa Fe's have actually stalled due to this CPS problem? (50? 100? 200?)
And would anyone have an idea as to why the NHTSA would issue a recall for this CPS sensor problem and not issue a recall for the other problem... of 290 Santa Fe Engines failing due to cylinder liners cracking or slipping inside the block as discussed on this forum and in the following article:
http://www.ocregister.com/news/hyundai00108cci1.shtmlAll vehicles have some problems, and its a forum like this that helps us keep our cars safe to be on the road.Thanks again to all.
The recall includes SF's built between 03/2000 - 02/2001 - but not all of these vehicles are subject to the recall problem.
I called Hyundai (1-800-633-5151)and they looked up my VIN and although it was built during the specified period (09/27/01), I was told my car is not one that is affected by the recall. I have an '01 GLS V-6 with 4WD.
I suggest that anyone wondering about theirs, call Hyundai and let them check their VIN.
