2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Transmission Q&A

  • 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. 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 volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Santa Fe’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Santa Fe is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • 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. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Hyundai's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
