Read your owner's manual. My 2010 Sonata manual states specifically that the color of the fluid does not indicate the need for change. Furthermore, my manual also states that SPIII "Diamond" or other brands meeting the SPIII specification may be used. Changing your transmission fluid is one of the best things you can do to insure your transmission lasts the life of the car. Hyundai calls for 30K mile intervals under the severe schedule. Another word for severe is I'm taking care of my car!
#27 of 80 Hyundai Tuscon Jerking/Banging Sensation
Feb 10, 2011 (7:57 am)
Our 2006 4 cylinder 2.0 L Tuscon now with 92k miles has recently begun with a jerking/banging or hitting feeling while driving at low speeds. No leaks, no instrument lights flashing, no unusual noises.Vehicle still drives fine except for these intermittent hesitations. You can definitely feel this in the steering wheel and it seems to be coming from more up front of the SUV than in the back end. Would appreciate anyone's experience, suggestions.

We purchased a new Tucson in May of 2005. The transmission had to be replaced in July 2006 at 22688 miles. This replacement transmission failed in July 2008 with only 34112 miles on it in exactly the same way as the original. This third transmission is failing in exactly the same way after only 38800 miles.
The transmission will either shudder or slam into gear. This only happens when the car has been coasting (no acceleration) for a distance and then even slight acceleration is applied. This can occur when you are going down a grade and then need to maintain the speed on a flat section or on an uphill grade.
This will be the last new transmission I will get under the 100,000 mile warranty. This shows why Hyunadi replacement parts should carry the same warranty as the original part. These parts are after all new.
Got any suggestions?

I never, ever had a single issue with my 2005 Tuscon. Then, on October 23rd of 2010 I hit a deer and took a big hit to the front. The dealership and body shop made it look 'like it never even happened'. Then on February 25, 2011 I got hit by a semi (terrible, bad, snowy day) and the insurance company completely totaled it
I'd get another one but now Hyundai's gettin' so big for their britches I can't even afford a new one off the lot. If I could I definitely would!
MY personal review - GREAT car, NO problems at all. If you avoid deer and semi-trucks you'll be glad you bought one!

I also own a Tucson GLS, which I purchased new in January 2005.I have only 22,800 miles on it, and last week while coasting to a stop sign, it just died. After the second try I restarted it. The trouble light came on, and I drove it that day about 5 more miles without any problems, except the trouble light remained on.The next day when I started it up in the morning, the trouble light was off. I took it into my local Auto Zone, and they connected the checker and it showed a P0335 trouble code. The printout said the code related to the crankshaft position sensor condition, and gave these probable causes: Crank sensor defective; Check connector and wiring to sensor; and Check trigger wheel for damage.
I do remember hitting a pothole shortly before the engine died.
Auto Zone suggested that I disconnect the negative battery cable for about 2 or three minutes to reset the onboard computer, and get rid of the trouble code, which I did. I then had to reset all my radio station pre-sets.
My local mechanic suggested I just drive it, and if the problem happens again, to have the sensor replaced. Hope this helps someone.

We have a Hyundai Tucson 2009 and our transmission went at about 8000 miles. We now have 35000 and we are hearing increasingly loud whining noises from what could be the trans. WHo else hears this?

Hyundai is known for Transmission problems. Just check out the Sante Fe Forum and listen to all the problems with the 2010-2011 models.
Seems they try to correct them with updates to the vehicles computer.
Lots a Luck.

So just how many vehicles is "known for transmission problems" or "listen to all the problems with 2010-2011 models"?
A forum of a small group of owners (and many trolls) is hardly a gauge of how many problems there are with a model or manufacturer. One person posts an issue and it's blown into a catastrophe.
Fact is it's a very small percentage of the total number of owners.

I have 8000+ miles on my 2010 tucson. It was just towed today to the dealership. The transmission locked up. Couldn't get it out of neutral. Service lights have been going on and off for a while (the skid and the steep grade lights) I scheduled a visit to take care of a recall for the reflector lights but roadside had to tow the car a day early as it wouldn't budge out of neutral so I couldn't even get the key out. The car had been 'racing' since i purchased it as if it was having trouble changing gears...then it self corrected. It would do this on and off. I reported the problem but they dismissed it as 'that's the way the cars are made'. I don't know how long it will take to replace or fix the transmission problem but after reading the other review where his car locked up going 50mph....i am not sure i ever want to drive this again!
