2008 Hyundai Elantra Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Hyundai's brakes? 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 I tow in a Hyundai Elantra? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Elantra towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Elantra is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • 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. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Hyundai's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
