2012 Hyundai Santa Fe Questions & Answers

  • 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Hyundai tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Santa Fe towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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. 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.
