Yesterday, after going to the dealership twice in the last 20,000 miles, I brought my 2010 Elantra in for the third time at 43000 miles and was told I need a new transmission ( and as an aside it was actually brought in for the check engine light ,faulty oxygen sensor). Seems like this is not an isolated problem. I too have had at least 20 new and used cars and have never had any transmission problem. OOOH What a feeling....

I bought a new 2010 Elantra and the transmission failed at 12K miles and again at 31K miles along with the engine computer. In addition, the vehicle has had the driver's side window regulator replaced and a door handle that the chrome peeled off. The A/C is now making a whinny noise, and the passenger side window regulator is making noise now. We have lost all confidence in this vehicle. Anyone have the same problems and what was the final solution?

I have a 09 Elantra with 98000 highway miles. I had the first tranny replaced at 80,000, and the second at 97,000. Both covered under warranty. The first was changed because it shift hard into 3rd gear, the second because when I drove the car more than 25 miles then shifted from drive to reverse, it took 5 seconds to engage in reverse. I sent Hyundai an email asking them to cover this tranny above the 100,000 mile warranty, and they told me to buy an extended warranty. I told them sorry no thanks, and this would be my last Hyundai. The only other issue, was the back right passenger door handle on the outside broke. Road noise is above average, but I understand its not a mercedes.

As a rule, any work done at a dealer & using OEM parts should carry a 1 year/12K mile warranty irrespective of the manufacturer's original warranty. So your trans ought to be covered to 110K miles or for the next year; whichever comes first. You can confirm that by reading your service receipt or calling the service department.

I dropped my car off for a transmission issue this morning. I was just told it would need a new transmission. My car is a 2010 Elantra Touring with 32K miles. Have they corrected the problem with the replacement transmissions or should I be buying an extended warranty? I bought my car used so I only a 60k mile warranty.

Yep, sign me up too. I have 42,000 miles on my 2010 Elantra Touring and my issues are:
1. Cold starts: first thing every morning when the car is not warmed up, when the tranny shifts from first to second, there is a dramatic lurch forward as though the tranny is holding back and then releases the car into second. This situation diminishes as the tranny (and fluid) get warmed up. After a recent flush of the transmission, the issue is now occuring with shifts from second to third gear
2. Reverse delay: there have been instances when the car takes 3 seconds to engage into reverse.
3. Rev surge: The engine revs up several hundred RPMS just before the tranny shifts from 3rd to 4th and 4th to overdrive.
4. Manually downshifting to 2nd gear: tranny takes 3 seconds to actually engage into 2nd after manually shifting
5. I am getting intermittant "slamming" from upshifts from 2nd to 3rd.
Mzonnet: you posted that you had some of these same issues a year ago. Did you get them resolved at all?

A couple of weeks ago I went to the local Hyundai dealership here in northern Virginia to get the heat shield fixed, and they also took care of a couple of recalls. While I was waiting, I was talking to one of the technicians about my old 2010 Elantra (I created this original post about my transmission failing so early) and how the transmission died. He said he wasn't surprised, because there have been tons of issues from all over the country regarding the transmissions from the 2010 Elantra model. I wonder what exactly happened!

I've been having problems with my transmission as well. I have a 2010 Hyundal Elantra with 27,000 miles and the transmission needs replaced. The driver's side window motor was just replaced and so was the chrome door handle on the passenger side door. It started peeling off and both me and wife cut our fingers on it. We have owned a 2001 and a 2008 Elantra, both new, and didn't have any problems with them.

Did anyone find out what the basic problem is with the 2010 Elantra tranny? Also, basically I like my Hyundai, (not the seats) I'm thinking I want another Hyundai but one with a little more storage space for wen I travel; did they put this same transmission in any of their other models? Anyone know of any other major problems with 2010, 11 Hyundai? Thanks.
