I just got my '01.5 GT and with 40 miles on it on the way home from the dealer the tranny shifted weird......
The 2-3 shift hesitated, the RPM's went to about 3,000 and then it shifted. The manual said that this could be possible on a new car or one that just had the battery disconnected, it goes on to say that the first few shifts may be abrupt until the ECM relearns. My question is have any of you automatic owners seen this in your cars? My car is a 2001 GT. Thanks.<img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

Yeah my 2002 Gt does it too...Before it shifts gears the RPm's go up and then it shifts...It's annoying.... I've got about 900 kilometers on it now and it's still doing it... I might go to the dealer and ask them about it.

Hi-Have 2001 that has been in 3 times for same problem. Gave it a while (1000 mi) to "learn" my driving..then noticed a tranny fluid leak! Replaced with new tranny at 2000 miles-still shifts weird after two more trips to dealer. New dealer now-said there is a "patch" out for it. Go in ASAP!!<img src=/images/forums/snitz/eek.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>

Must be that new fuzzy-logic automatic transmissions. 2001 is the first year Hyundai is doing this in Elantras, as far as I'm concerned. I guess it may have a few bugs in it, but I have heard about this and it seems to be pretty common. This transmission adapts to your driving habits. I'd give it a few thousand miles to break in and fully adapt to the way you drive, if the dealer can't do anything about it and claims its "normal".

It is a known issue with the Fuzzy Logic tranny. Hyundai is supposed to be working on a fix for it. Take it to your dealer, they may have worked it out by now.

Thanks guys, put about 80 miles on it last night, seems to be better now, will watch it though. Also, if I take of real slow, it shifts normal, only part throttle and higher does it do it. Hmmmmm.

If the car is still in its break in period, I would wait till at least 1000 miles to see if the problem could be the car breaking in. This goes for not only problems like this, but fuel effiency, etc.
