MrsS Roomy SUV with Great "I Wants" May 21, 2019 GLS
Overall Score
We just purchased a used Hyundai Santa Fe from MMS Motors in Oakville. We found it on Auto Trader. After being a Kia Sportage owner for 10 years, the Santa Fe is roomier and has vents in the back on each back door frame which we really wanted and found air ventilation lacking in the Sportage. 17" wheels are larger and provides a much smoother ride. More storage space and power outlets. I really look after my vehicles and it will be nice to enjoy the sunroof, leather interior, smoother ride.

On certain FWD Santa Fe Sport vehicles equipped with a 2.4L engine, the passenger side axle shaft could fail. This could result in a loss of vehicle propulsion which, in conjunction with traffic and road conditions, and the driver’s reactions, could increase the risk of a crash. This could also allow the vehicle to roll away if parked on a sufficient slope, despite the transmission shift lever being set in the PARK position. Both issues could result in property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will replace the right front axle shaft assembly.

On certain vehicles equipped with an advanced airbag system, the Passive Occupant Detection System (PODS), installed in the right front seat of the vehicle, may misclassify a small stature adult as a child and deactivate the passenger frontal airbag. When the passenger frontal airbag is deactivated, the “PASS AIR BAG OFF” warning lamp will illuminate. This would cause the right front airbag to not inflate in a crash that merits airbag deployment, and may result in injury to the right front seat occupant. The condition will not affect the driver’s frontal airbag deployment. Correction: Dealers will reprogram the PODS system.

On certain vehicles, the stop lamp switch may have been incorrectly installed during vehicle assembly. This could prevent proper brake lamp operation. Failure of the brake lamps to illuminate when the brakes are applied may result in the following road users being unaware of the driver's intentions, increasing the risk of a crash causing injury or death. A malfunction of the switch may also cause the brake lamps to remain illuminated when the brake pedal is released. Additionally, a faulty switch may affect the operation of the brake-transmission shift interlock on automatic transmission-equipped vehicles so that the transmission shifter would not be able to be shifted out of PARK position. It may also cause the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) light to illuminate, and it may not deactivate the cruise control when the brake pedal is depressed. Correction: Dealers will replace the stop lamp switch assembly.
