2004 Hyundai Santa Fe Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Hyundai's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Hyundai? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Santa Fe towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Santa Fe is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Santa Fe's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Hyundai Santa Fe’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Hyundai. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
