2013 Hyundai Sonata Transmission Service & Repairs

What’s the Importance of Your 2013 Sonata’s Transmission?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Hyundai Sonata transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Hyundai Sonata transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Sonata’s not even driveable.

2013 Hyundai Sonata Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Hyundai's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Hyundai tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Sonata towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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 Sonata transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Hyundai Sonata’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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.
