That's interesting. The new Sonata, Santa Fe and Tucson do not require ATF replacement under normal service!

That is true! Most of us drive in conditions that could be considered severe at least part of the time.

Thanks for the info.

I drive in Arizona where the lows are 85 and the highs are 115 during the summer. On my other cars drain the pan, fill, then disconnect the ATF return line from the radiator and start car for a few seconds to pump out a quart/add a quart and repeat until I have replaced all the fluid. Confirm with dipstick.

This car uses 7 quarts so it will be cheaper My other cars use 9 and 11.

The temp has to get to to 122 to 140 degrees. I would check my other cars while warm, but if I do it on a hot summer day my garage is probably 122. )

Finally - no dipstick. Have to open the plug and let fluid drain while it is running. I am used to plug (differential fluid on truck) but at least the engine doesn't have to be on.

At least the car is brand new, so I don't have to worry about this for a few years.
