Fuel pump died shortly after 120K miles. Had the sub-sender replaced at the same time since they were both suspect at this high mileage. Earlier in the week, I'd had two unexplainable stall situations. This time needed to be towed. Rear wheel bearing noisy since about 110K miles. Finally got tired of listening to it at 120K. One noisy, but quite a bit of play in both rears. Replaced both. A hundred miles after the fuel pump replacement, fully filled tank was reading only half full, indicating bad install, float probably stuck under equalizer tube. Will be taking in to fix next week at dealer's expense.

This has been far and away the most reliable vehicle I have owned. The only thinges I can say as a negative about the SUV is that the gas mileage has deteriorated about 10 - 15% in local driving, however, a portion of that must be attributed to the 70 mph + avg. So. California freeway normal flow of traffic speeds compared to the 5 to 7 mph slower AVG speeds in MD, where the Santa Fe spent the first half of it's 10 years to date.

Left fuel sensor would not work when tank was filled up. Once a couple of gallons where used the fuel gauge worked. The major problem was that the Engine light was on because of this. This was a big job as the rear seats had to be removed.

Check engine light came on. Tech said small evap leak that they could not locate. They replaced gaps cap and so far so good. (Last fill up was a week before the problem, so presumably not loose cap).
