2016 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.
  • 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. 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.
  • How often does my Santa Fe transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Hyundai Santa Fe transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
