Questions About 2002 Hyundai Sonata’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Hyundai? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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 small. Defying your Sonata towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Sonata transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Hyundai Sonata’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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
