Vehicle will not come out of Park. Just redone brakes and they were not "Pumped back up" before use. Pedal went to floor but stopped me. Put it in park to pump brakes up, now it won't come out of park.

Found it! There is a plastic clip at the top of the brake pedal which connects a cable coming from shifter (I believe) When brakes went clear to floor, the plasic piece came apart (Safety Feature I Believe). Put cable and plastic piece back together and now it runs fine! Thanks for your help DJ!

Isn't it amazing how far technology has come, but we can still be flummoxed by a simple piece of plastic? It's seems like their could be a better way of attaching that piece than a plastic clip.

If it does the job it is made to do and does not break then I am okay with it being plastic. I will admit though this is the first time I have heard of an auto having this feature, is it Santa Fe only or do other vehicles have this as well?

Plastic parts are common in a lot of cheaper vehicles simply due to the cost versus effectiveness of the parts. Sante Fe certainly isn't the only vehicle that uses plastic in key places.

For example... Saturn's have plastic bumpers.

Plastic parts are usually used by many companies and it is essential now a days because it will decrease the cost of manufacture and plastic parts are much effective in my opinion.
