2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Transmission Q&A

  • 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 I tow in a Hyundai Santa Fe? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my Santa Fe transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2017 Santa Fe’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
