2012 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 I tow in a Hyundai Elantra? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is.
