Hello Car Talk community
I have a 2010 Elantra and I have been having problems accelerating in the last couple of months. Took it to a mechanic and they said it’s definitely my transmission. I am at 51,118 miles and so I am still under warranty. The Hyundai dealership said the transmission needs to be completely replaced. How does this happen to a car that isn’t that old and doesn’t have many miles on it? A factory defect?
The dealership, being a dealership tried to get me to do a bunch of other stuff to my car and I wanted to ask all of you about one of them. They said my battery is going to die soon. I guess it’s at 236 (amps?) and should be at 550 (according to the dealership, that’s where it should be). Is that right? I don’t know enough about cars to know whether this is right and don’t tend to trust dealerships. Your advise would be much appreciated!
