Hi,

I decided I WILL have the ATF changed in my 2017 Hyundai Elantra Value Edition with SP4 30K. However, if I take it to one of the several well respected independent shops in my area, how do I know for sure the drain and refill was actually done and done correctly since, with NO dispstick, there is NO way that I would know unless I stand there and watch them which I am sure most shops frown upon. If I use an independent shop, I think I would personal purchase the OEM fluid and bring to them and just ask for the empty bottles back.
The other option is to have the dealer do it, but again, how do you REALLY know if was done and done correctly?

Any thoughts??

Thanks
Michael in NJ

It's called trust.

You'll never know unless you do it yourself. Requesting the old, empty bottles is about as close as you can get to verification, but even that means very little.

Most of these "sealed" transmissions require the fill to be done at a specific temperature range. They will need the technical information and appropriate instrument to do this. Given Hyundai's lengthy powertrain warranty, I would take it to a Hyundai dealer to maintain the warranty (or do it myself). I know taking it to a dealer is not required to maintain the warranty BUT if the over or under fill and there are future transmission problems, you may have an issue. My two cents!

Your choices are to do it yourself or trust the shop to perform the service as requested. Even empty bottles isn't fully conclusive they did it.

DIY is NOT gonna happen, so its either independent shop or a dealer.

I am going with the dealer for this one for my 2017 Elantra. They have everything needed to do the job. They have a lot of experience or training vehicle specific. If anything happens to the transmission they have no excuse to deny warranty.


Truth alone triumphs, not untruth.

I had my Santa Fe done at the dealer, in conjunction with a recall that needed to be done. I do trust them and I got SP IV. I am less sure about my trusted independents, and if they had to order SP IV from a local dealer, the cost would be much more.

You could open the check plug and ensure fluid trickles out while checking the color before and after. Vehicle must be level and warm. Or you could mark the position of the drain and check plug before bringing the vehicle into the shop so you know they've been removed and replaced :-)

Again, DIY is NOT gonna happen! I never worked on a car in my life and have no intention of messing this up!
