So I was driving my 04 shiftronic V6 home the other day and going from 2nd to 3rd in drive, it slammed into third so hard my factory CD player skipped. It has just gotten worse since then. I am taking it in on the 27th. Has anyone else had this problem? What can i expect from the dealership? How big of a pain in the *ss should I expect?

sounds like it could be your TCM it happened to mine you could take it to the dealer and tell them to check it..mine was fixed no charge.

I couldn't get an appointment until after christmas, so she is going in on the 27th. I hope your right. Needing a new tranny at only 25k does not bode well for me.

The thing that worries me is it did it between 3rd and 4th today. It happened the first time two days ago, and it is getting worse fast.

Mine had the same problem, 05 Auto GT.. They had to order a whole new tranny at only 13k, but the new one has been great , no problems since. The only pain in the *ss you're gunna see is a 2-week wait before you get to drive your baby again.

Supposely a torque convertor will because its lighter than the stock convertor, so it acs like how a lightweight flywheel would for a manual.

Other than that, wait for TC's standalone unit or spend 4k and get a beefed up tranny like tibby03. Next time just make a new thread also

I find it interesting how many auto issues you guys are having. I wonder why santa fe owners dont seem to have many issues and yet the tib with the same tranny does.

I own an elantra and that thump you are talking about on the beta auto..... Is because of the fluid level. The beta auto tranny is a really good unit. HOwever if the level is not perfect at full temp in N it will flare.
