I hope so, because I thought the same thing until corporate pulled the, "We refuse to do anything about it, but keep sending us pictures and videos of these issues!" They're never getting another penny from me.Mine is 2.0t awd. Dealers can't find anything. Hyundai USA is researching my case still. The dealers are starting to piss me off. Dealers won't say anything is wrong but won't say that the acceleration is normal. Hyundai USA has excellent service and I truly believe they are trying to figure this out. Not so good service from dealers though

There's about 3 diff. scenarios that can cause the issue (so far) and it appears only one is governed by the disabling of the ESC and/or traction control. You'll notice that sometimes the ESC (not the traction control, they're two different indicators on the instrument panel, I believe) will kick in. So far it seems to occur when the front wheels are turning (to some degree), and the vehicle is accelerating (again, to some degree) AND the rear wheels "slip" or hit a bump (we think AWD 2.0 T models are more prone).I didn't read every thread but I too have this problem and I HAVE FOUND A SOLUTION. When you're turning and if safe to do so, look down at the bottom right of the instrument panel. I'll bet you see a flashing symbol which is actually the traction control engaging. It's the most sensitive traction control I've ever encountered. To prove this is the issue, find your traction control bottom and push it for at least 1-2 seconds until it says it's disabled. I will almost guarantee you won't have the issue anymore when driving. The only problem is you need to do this every time you start your car and of course when you don't anticipate any conditions that'll benefit from traction control.
I'm trying to contact Hyundai about a fix because it is dangerous. I don't know why the threashold is so low for it but when I disable traction control, I have NO issues going around a corner no matter what speed I'm going.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if this helps anyone so I can show hyundai what they need to do to fix this problem.
If you've not noticed an issue, then I wouldn't worry about it. Others have advised it appears more prevalent in the Turbo Ultimate which includes All Wheel Drive (AWD). I do believe it is related to the AWD sensing and software for the tranny.Is this issue only happening to Sport models? Or is it also present in "regular" Santa Fe models?
Purchased my 2017 santa fe 2.0T sport limited AWD, in April 2016, and it has had this issue since. The dealer had told me its normal at the time.Correction:
for Canada it's TSB 17-41-001
Yup, now my sf drives great, no more traction Control kicking in on small bumps or lag.Elvis7 I live in Canada and have a 2017 2.0T Ultimate with the same issue. Were you able to get the update? If so, do you know what the code for the Service was or the Canadian TSB? Thanks.
Same. Got it done 2 weeks ago, way more responsive, feels unleashed in a way. It always felt hesitant. Service advisor had no clue when I asked about it, it wasn't in his system, but the tech got the update when he scanned it in the garage.Got the TSB that fixes this installed today at the dealer. It's a whole new animal now. Shifts much better, especially the down shift logic, smoother, the throttle is more responsive, and maybe most importantly, the traction control issues are gone.
Wondering if you found a solution?Hi, owner of a 2016 7-seater Santa Fe. I have the hesitation on mine as well. It's mostly on corners that I have stopped at or came to a rolling stop before completing the turn, and rarely on acceleration on a straight-away. Either way, it is too inconsistent to bring into a repair shop to have it diagnosed and fixed. Yesterday I turned off eco mode and so far it hasn't done it. I also seem to have better gas mileage- shouldn't I have worse??
I have seen a lot of talk about this being on 2017 sport models, but mine is neither.
