Hyundai Accent Automatic Transmission Problems

104 15

    Difficulty Shifting

    • Hyundai Accent technical service bulletins (TBSs) report that the most commonly reported problem with an automatic transmission is irregular shifting. Reports indicate that shifting may be "difficult" or "harsh," especially when attempting to shift into drive or reverse.

    Acceleration Failure

    • TSBs state that multiple Accent models suffer transmission slippage during acceleration. Drivers may either experience failure to accelerate when shifting from 3rd to 4th gear or while accelerating from a stop. TSBs indicate that a failing transaxle may be the the primary cause of this slippage.


    • In 1999, Hyundai issued a recall on 11,530 Hyundai Accent automatic transmissions, because of a defective pressure control solenoid. The defective part may result in transmission fluid leakage, which may affect the clutch, brakes and kick down servo. Contact your local Hyundai dealership to see if your 1999 Accent is on the recall list.
