2006 Hyundai Santa Fe Drivetrain Service

All About 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Santa Fe's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Hyundai, from back to front. It’s one of your Santa Fe’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe to maintain its performance power. Follow Hyundai's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

Hyundai Santa Fe Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Hyundai could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Hyundai Santa Fe.

How much does it cost to fix your 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.

  • How often should I come in for Hyundai Santa Fe differential service? Double check your owner’s manual and talk with a technician. Differential service frequency varies from car to car. At a minimum, we recommend getting your differential inspected and the differential fluid changed as a part of your regular vehicle maintenance routine since your vehicle cannot function without a differential.
