It seems that all my car problems only happen occassionaly, and of course they never can duplicate them when the cars in the shop.....this is my most recent.
I have a 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe with 24,000 miles.
The problem is that it downshifts at inappropriate times.
For example.....I was driving on the highway going about 60, there was slower traffic up ahead so I took my foot off the gas to let it slow down on it's own.
About 5 seconds after I took my foot off, it downshifted, I was still going around 55 and 60 mph.
After it downshifted a couple of seconds later it went back up into 4th gear without me pushing on the gas pedal.
It will also do it sometimes in other gears, but isn't as noticiable.
I've had it in the shop and told the dealer what's going on. They've told me both times they couldn't duplicate the problem, and have reset the computer both times. That seems to help for awhile, but then it'll start doing it again.
And of course it seems to do it in spurts. For the last week it hasn't done it at all.

Most locksmiths, key cutters can duplicate another key for you. To get another key fob(remote), you will have to go to a Hyundai Dealer. The remote will also have to be programmed along with the remote you have now. Costs vary.
i have a 2004 hyundai santa fe and i've had the same problems. it's so random when it happens but it seems to be when its a bit warmer outside.. above 70 degrees. it's when i press the gas from a stopped position the car just almost dies. i've pulled out in traffic and thought i was going to get killed. then the car accelerates and the tires squeal and the engine revs super high. the car jerks and its very scary. i bought the car new in 2004 and it started doing it after a few years and it still does it. it's not the gas pedal. it seems like a glitch in the computer or something. it's very dangerous!
