Transmission Failure at 15K miles. 2013 Hyundai Tucson
My 2013 Limited with 15K miles is having the transmission replaced. I had noticed a few very hard downshifts driving recently. However, the issues got serious when I took the car thru the carwash last week. When the attendant told me "neutral, no brake" i did as instructed, but the car continued to move forward slowly. After getting yelled at by the attendant and verifying I was indeed in neutral, my car tapped the car in front. I braked occasionallly to get thru the carwash. When I checked things out on a level surface, the car still continued to creep forward while in neutral. A few days later I got the "good news/bad news" report. Good news: they found the problem. Bad news: transmission needed to be replaced. All covered by warranty and driving a new sonata loaner, so satisfied on that front. I have lingering concerns about the integrity/durability of the transmission. In 45 years of car ownership and typically keeping cars for 100k+, this is the first time I have ever had to replace a transmission. This is the 4 Hyundai I have purchased, so obviously I like and trust the brand, but this has me worried. What experience have others had with Tucson transmission?
