2016 Hyundai Sonata Transmission Q&A

  • 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 your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Sonata is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • 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. 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.
