India bound 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe being probed for drive shaft failure in the United States

India bound 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe being probed for drive shaft failure in the United States

The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe has been under the radar of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in the USA after receiving a couple of complaints from owners about broken drive shaft on vehicles that have been driven less than 8,000km. 

The preliminary investigation has begun and at this moment it is unclear if the five-seater, the seven-seater model or both have been affected. Hyundai USA has released a statement saying that necessary action will be taken after gathering the relevant information and that no recalls will be issued till then. 

The lone SUV from Hyundai in India is imported as CBUs (Completely Built Units) and has been available in India from October 2010. India currently does not get the 2013 model of the Santa Fe though the car has been spotted testing on multiple occasions outside Chennai over the last few months and is likely to debut by the end of the year.  

If the problem with the drive shaft does exist, then it is likely that the to-be launched models for the Indian markets will also be affected.  Hyundai may delay the launch of the 2013 model in India to fix the issue.
