As you drive like many other essential parts your transmission is placed under a heavy workload. Over the life of your Hyundai the stress of driving, random stops, traffic, and simply the passage of time results in your transmission failing. A transmission replacement removes the bad transmission replacing it with a new or rebuilt transmission.
Your car’s transmission is one of the hardest working parts of the entire car. Over time heat, pressure, and the stress of daily driving in Brown Deer causes your transmission to wear out and require replacing. Transmissions on average last about seven years or 150,000 to 200,000 miles although outliers do exist in terms of longevity and early failure. Regular servicing and good driving habits can help extend your transmission’s lifespan but in time it will need replacing.
There is a difference in repair costs depending on the type of transmission your car has. In general, manual transmissions are cheaper to replace due to the fact they are a less complex part than an automatic. However, this is not always true depending on other factors (such as your driving habits) manuals can be more expensive simply due to more frequent repairs. If you drive aggressively or aren’t the most skilled in operating a manual the replacement costs do increase.
Your Hyundai’s transmission is a part that if it goes bad can cause driving to become very dangerous or make your car completely undrivable if it fails. Signs such as gears jumping, grinding noises, sticking during shifts, warning lights coming on, strange smells, and fluid leaks are all signs of a failing transmission. This is very dangerous as random transmission failure can cause an accident as you drive home from Glendale or leave you on a Wauwatosa roadside waiting for a tow truck.
