Has anyone else been eyeing the 2019 Santa Fe but feeling a bit hesitant because of engine concerns?

Hey guys,

I’ve got my eye on a 2019 Santa Fe, but I’m feeling a bit worried about the Theta II GDI engine and the recent reports of failures and fires. I’m afraid that I might run into the same issues down the line with this vehicle. I’ve been exploring other options, but none of them really seem to match up to what the Santa Fe has to offer. I love the styling of it, but I can’t shake the feeling that they’re still using those Theta II engines from the same factory in Alabama.

Do you think this concern is valid?

Anybody else feeling the same way?
