Questions About 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Hyundai? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Hyundai Santa Fe? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Santa Fe’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Santa Fe's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2001 Santa Fe’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.
