2010 Hyundai Elantra Transmission Service & Repairs

Why is Your 2010 Elantra’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Hyundai Elantra transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Hyundai Elantra transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Elantra at all.

2010 Hyundai Elantra Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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 my Hyundai tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. 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.
  • When should I have my Elantra's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2010 Elantra’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
