1999 Hyundai Elantra Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Hyundai? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Hyundai tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. Defying your Elantra towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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 transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1999 Elantra’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Hyundai. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
