With regards the transmission of the SUV Hyundai Santa Fe 2002 and it has been 4 weeks still on the dealer shop and no extra rental car provided after 4 weeks that's been, just wants to find out if it part of the recall vehicle. If we didn't notice anything, who knows could it happen if we're driving on the highway and the transmission start to fall out. Please let us know if this consider as a recall, thank you...
