Problem Description and Possible Solution
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.

last week I got off the 880 and took the Stevenson Blvd exit in Fremont Calif. I stopped at a red light. When it turned green I had no acceleration, max speed was 20mhp. Luckily it took it to a shop and they charged me $511 for catalytic repair. Today 4 days later, merging into freeway traffic with my whole family in the car the car had no acceleration. It still sits. I am mad 47k miles slightly over 10 year mark and no warranty for the repairs. I love this car but it is a very thin line between love and HATE! Curious to see the the dealer can solve this problem without taking me to the cleaners. I think I should have bought a Honda or Toyota instead.
