#115 of 136 2001 Hyundai (w/56K miles) Transmission
May 14, 2010 (2:47 pm)
Noticed in last few months there was a shudder when I was reversing into a parking spot. Also a shudder even more recently when applying brakes to bring car to a stop. Hyundai dealership (commissioned, i presume) salesperson said that I needed a change in transmission fuel to the tune of close to $200 (not within warranty). I double checked my car history and found it was changed 5k ago. He backed off when I insisted they check further. He called back saying that whole transmission has to be replaced (within warranty). Whew! Apparently that's within the warranty period, which expires in January 2011. I understand it would have cost $3,000. So, the point here, is listen and don't ignore to what your car is saying to you, especially within the warranty!

My Transmition went at 56780 miles its covered under my warranty but I am without a car for a week they say they can give me a rental at 30.00 a day and thats a discount rate i have talked to consumer of hyundai and other dealer ships they would of gave me a loaner if i puchased thru them why is it different in my home town it dont make sence its a long time without a car.
#118 of 136 Is there someone besides consumer

I just don't know who else to contact i just think its not normal for a dealership to deny a loaner and I have to pay enterprize for a rental when its not something I could control it was a defect 3 defects according to them

Loaners are not automatically included under the general warranty; it's a dealer-to-dealer thing. $30 a day does seem steep though for an Enterprise (compact) rental. A few things to check: try to get a weekly rate vs. daily--it is usually a lot less for 7 days than paying a daily rate. You might also check to see if your auto insurance policy has rental car coverage and if it covers you in this case. Also, if you haven't tried talking with the dealership's service manager yet to help you with the rental car expense, because it's Hyundai's fault that it's taking 7 days to repair your car (I assume because they have to ship a transmission), you should do that.

Don't do it! You are better off getting another of the same car with working trans. A rebuild is going to set you back a lot of money. Besides getting a younger version of the car you love so much, you could also get away with having a "car guy" disconnect cooler lines and blow out the trans fluid, while you dump new fluid in the top of the trans. You never know. Nice fresh fluid could make a big difference. Use SP3 (Castrol make an "import" fluid that meets this spec) Next suggestion is replace speed sensors (two of them). They are $27 a piece and not that hard to replace.

I had the same problem. I would check that suspension is tight, then take a crow bar and push the drive axle out a little. It is the one on the passenger side and basically goes from your wheel hub to the trans. Can't miss it. You can't push it out, so don't worry about that. Just don't poke your crow bar in more than an inch or two.
My problem went away by doing this. No idea about the buzzing??

Yes, e.g. 2011 Forte will get it. 2011 Optima has same 6AT as the Sonata.
