Questions About 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Hyundai? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Hyundai? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Santa Fe transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Hyundai Santa Fe’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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.
