Why is Your 2016 Elantra GT’s Transmission So Important?

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Hyundai Elantra GT transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Hyundai Elantra GT transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Elantra GT’s not even driveable.

2016 Hyundai Elantra GT Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Hyundai's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Hyundai tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my Elantra GT transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Hyundai Elantra GT’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Hyundai, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
