2002 Hyundai Elantra Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Hyundai? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Hyundai tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. 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.
  • Does my Elantra's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Hyundai Elantra’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
