The bad news: the Santa Fe (and Sport) have hoods that can fly open and need to be recalled. The good news: this is an issue with the secondary latch, which is basically your safety net in case the primary latch fails.

Hyundai says the 2013-2017 Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport SUVs have secondary hood latch actuating cables that can corrode and bind, causing the secondary latch to stay unlatched when the hood is closed.
