Questions About 2012 Hyundai Sonata’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Hyundai? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Hyundai Sonata? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Sonata’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Sonata's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Hyundai Sonata’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
