Hyundai Transmission Problems Persist With 2016 And 2017 Models

October 04, 2017 By: LemonLaw Category: hyundai, Transmission

If you are driving a 7-speed dual-clutch Hyundai, you may be experiencing transmission issues and you are not alone. Our law firm has been representing consumers with Hyundai transmission problems dating back to 2011 and now they are affecting 2016 and 2017 models as well, specifically the 2017 Hyundai Elantra Eco, 2017 Hyundai Sonata Eco, 2016-2017 Hyundai Tucson and 2016 Hyundai Veloster Turbo. We initially wrote about Hyundai Tucson transmission problems back in 2012 and have successfully handled numerous cases regarding these problems.

Common Hyundai transmission problems include: difficulty shifting gears, hesitation when accelerating, loss of power and stalling.  These issues has been written about on multiple automotive websites like Car Complaints, Consumer Reports and It Still Runs.

If you are experiencing Hyundai transmission problems, we suggest taking your car to a local Hyundai dealer as soon as possible. Be sure to obtain repair invoices after each visit to confirm the vehicles mileage, days out of service, your complaint, and their fix. These invoices must be kept in a safe place.  They are extremely important when it comes to documenting your claim.

If you’ve had repeat visits to a dealer to address your Hyundai transmission problem, or your car has been in the shop for an extended period of time while they try to address the issue, please send us an email or call us at 1 800 LEMON LAW (1 800 536 6652). You could be looking at a repurchase, new vehicle, or significant monetary compensation under State or Federal Law. Best of all, these laws provide 100% cost-free legal representation.

If you have any inquiries surrounding a Hyundai with transmission issues, feel free to reach out and we will be glad to either answer your question or find someone who can. When it comes to Hyundai transmission problems, its important not to “stall” when it comes to fighting for your rights.

    Hello, my name is Carol n I have a Hyundai Veloster 2016 . purchased-date is April 7,2017 .
    It’s been in the service dept .7 times in 6 months and for such issues as :
    • check engine lights –
    • Oil changes multi-point inspection set tire pressure & replacing all 4 tires balanced/alignment. –
    • check engine light on,
    due to purge control valve not flowing properly n necessary to order & replace .
    I’ve had many conversations about my concerns and the way car drives n my concerns about performance has always been re the transmission , acceleration issues , rattling in engine, dual clutch is always in 5th gear. Dealership always verifies concern, runs test , adjust test drives n verified correct opperation.
    It runs ok briefly right after (always less then 10miles) then goes back to same rattling acceleration problems shifting problems. Sounds n feels like car starts off In a higher gear.
    When ever I switch from automatic mode to dual clutch mode it displays 5th gear even if I down shift to first gear/Then (D) drive and back to dual clutch mode . Always displays 5th gear.
    Then the car brakes down after I accelerated onto road way , the transmission fails . It no longer goes into Drive or reverse . Leaving no choice but to push out of road n call TOW TRUCK . Car is back at dealership service dept. at this time.

    I have a walk-in appt. to talk with a dept. head in the morning (Tuesday)

    I’m needing consultation on course of action necessary to resolve this

    friends good day vehicles 2006 hyundai accent era 1.6 automatic gearbox. I have been knocking on the engine for a few weeks when it is hot and the engine is warmed up to the n d d and n d r or n d l, l positions. stopping the car for a long time and then stopping the car and running it as if there is no problem. The gearshift position is incorrectly shown in the gearshift position, but it shows n on the screen. The gearshift position shows L in the 2nd gear. Van Hyundai service has not been able to find anything. I think that we will do it.I’m surprised that we will do it.When connecting to the computer, the fault code of p0708 and this is the Transmission Range Sensor Circuit High error description.One position position switcher tr sensor position sensor or location It is called the nsörüde. There is something like a hani indicator inside the palm of the bottom of the piece of work. It moves like a scorpion in the hour. Can it be the problem in this case please emergency help.Thank you

      I have a 2018 Hyundai Elantra SEL. At 3000 miles took it to the dealer for oil change and transmission issues. It rough shifting, so rough from 1st to 2nd that it moves my body forward. Two service employees drove it and said they didn’t experience it. At 7500 miles still doing it. I believe Hyundai has a problem to solve!

      I have had problems with my tucson 2017 limited. Have had it in shop innumerable times to no avail ” operator error” functioning as designed. Bull crap. Caused me to have an accident because it did not accelerate. Hyundai basically told me it was my fault. That I did not know how to drive the car. Stuck with it they said. I just wanted something that was the same year and with the same miles without this transmission. They (hyundai) told me to eat it. Read the manual was their response also the response of Lester Glenn in Toms River NJ. Previously I owned a Sante Fe which gave me no problems. However, the sante fe did not have this transmission. Talk about crappy company. Side note: Hyundai as of this year no longer is using that transmission.

        I purchased a 2013 Hyundai Veloster in 2016 (was third owner only 31,000 miles), and financed for 6 years.i have had this car just 2 years, and had to have a transmission installed approx. 6 months after purchase, after it stranded me on the interstate. It had a problem stalling or not accelerating at first, and I took it in several times, for them to say they cold not see an issue. Then if course, the transmission went out, and was replaced. I just relocated to Florida, and the transmission has gone out again, with less than 40,000 miles on new transmission! I still owe 4 years on this car. Please help, what can I do?

        I have a 2017 Veloster that I purchased 11/2017 which has similar issues with shifting and failing to accelerate as well.
        The problem seems to be worse when the engine and transmission haven’t warmed up. I’ve taken it in and they say that its a dual clutch transmission and they work differently. I know the transmissions are different, but when you step on the gas and the car doesn’t go, then there;’s a problem.
