2003 Hyundai Sonata Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Hyundai's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Hyundai? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Sonata's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Hyundai Sonata transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
