If the automatic transmission does not shift properly and the Check Engine Light illuminates, the speed sensors in the transmission may have failed. The sensors are simple and inexpensive to replace.

Drive Train -- Verified

Prior to replacing the automatic transmission fluid (to improve shift quality), make sure that the transmission fluid level is correct. Also, make sure the computer that controls the transmission has the most up-to-date adaptive programming information. When servicing these transmissions be sure to use fluid approved by Hyundai.

A failing vapor canister purge valve may cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. This valve is part of the evaporative (EVAP) emission control system.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

The airbag warning light may illuminate due to an internal fault with the driver's side airbag. Hyundai has issued a recall for this concern. The recall applies to 1994 & 1995 models only.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

An electrical connector for the passenger front seat weight sensor is located under the center console.

2007 Hyundai Elantra Reviews

The car was ok for the first few years, was getting good gas mileage avg 35 on the highway until the 60,000 mile check up and then it dropped to less than 20. I asked the dealer service dept. about it and he blamed it on the winter weather and the additives they put in the gas although it has warmed up and still is not any better and it never did that any other winter. I've had to had the brakes done 3 times, new tires every 2nd year, 2 tie rods. Don't know if the dealer is just milking me now or what, I'm a little skeptical at this point. The door handle has broken twice - the first time it was covered under the warranty, but this second time it will cost $50.00 even though I still have same warrenty coverage. Was told at the time of buying that the 30,000 and 60,000 mile required check-ups would be $500 - the first one was, but the second was more like $800 and that's when things seemed to start going downhill. When it's time for a new one will not buy this make again.

This has been the best car that I have ever owned. Other than routine maintenance, a battery, and occasionally bulbs for headlights, I have really had no problems with this car. I have had to replace tires twice, but that could have just been a bad set that I got the second time. I have only recently had to replace the front brake pads, and I have more than 105,000 miles on this car. It has never left me stranded, gets great gas mileage, and has required no more than normal maintenance. I highly recommend this car if you're in the market for a small car.

I have Elantra 2007 2.0L with automatic transmission.the problem is the car sometimes the engine cut off suddenly and able to start again without any problem also the engine check light does not turn on
that happen at law speed exactly at the first gear level.
i don't know the reason for this and I'm from libya and we don't have the hyundai service center here.
so please would you tell any thing about this
thanks a lot.

This Elantra gets great gas mileage and that is even without babying the accelerator. Since day one I have only had to changes the oil and filters. Car cruises at highway speed with little effort. It is a great car in the City or on the road. I also had a 2000 Elantra and passed it onto a relative, which still running good. I'm glad to have another one. Very reliable and inexpensive !!!
