Questions About 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe’s Transmission

  • 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.
  • What can I tow in a Hyundai? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Santa Fe’s towing capacity. 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 Santa Fe's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Hyundai Santa Fe’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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
