2012 Hyundai Santa Fe Drivetrain Service

All About 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe Drivetrain Service

Your Santa Fe’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Hyundai, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your Santa Fe and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Hyundai's recommendations.

When to Get 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 fix many 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Hyundai Santa Fe may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Hyundai Santa Fe doesn’t drive like it used to.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe drivetrain repair is expensive. Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.

  •  Can Hyundai drivetrain maintenance help me save money? Yes, sometimes it can. First, servicing the drivetrain system can help you avoid more significant repairs. It can also somewhat reduce tire wear.
  • How do I know if my Hyundai drivetrain is damaged? Noises toward the back of your Hyundai Santa Fe, leaking fluid, trouble turning — these could all be signs of drivetrain damage you want to address. Take action before something more severe happens.
  • 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.
