    Having the just got this extremely clean Santa Fe for my wife, I was surprised how much pep the lil 3.5L V6 puts out, it’s surprisingly fast. Don’t know if someone put a tune on it or not. But anyway, I’m rambling… The car has new tires all around from the dealer, and when it’s raining or even little snow/slush on road, it spins out, like hydroplaning for a second when you hit the water.. like kicks out all time. All you can Do is back down the accelerator and relax. Makes u feel like your gonna lose it. I know it’s got some pep, but this is crazy.maybe I got a squeaky strut, I hit a pot hole going slow in a weird way, like dragged tire out coming out of pot hole, developed a squeak at the top of the drivers side strut tower.

    Maybe a bad tie rod? Drives fine when dry.

    Cheap Chinese tires, I’ll look when I get home. I was planning on rotating them this weekend. I know they were cheap because I insisted on new tires before I bought the car. I will post the make later on. I see where you going tho… Thanks.

    That is the most likely cause of the problem.
