Answered my question, do not have an Elantra, but thinking about buying one, we had the most luxurious Cruze we could buy with a manual transmission, that was just rear ended by a drunker driver with a large SUV.
Really not interested in the cheapest Elantra, and hopefully we can adapt to that manual mode. Ha, wish we could buy a vehicle made in Italy, There it is difficult to find an AT.
People I know with AT's and NOT having a dipstick are running into problems, you have to remove the top fill plug and let fluid drip in your face.
But here is the deal, the transmission has to be cold to fill it to the top, fluid expands drastically and if checked hot, will lose fluid, TC slips and clutches wear out. Really stupid to remove this stick. Thought Hyundai would have more brains
80's Honda's, Toyota's, Nissan's, etc., all had dipsticks, easiest thing in the world in a FWD vehicle, just drill a hole in the top of the AT and screw in a fitting with a stick on it.
May buy the Limited anyway, and see about making my own. Does the Elantra have a warring lamp for low fluid? And an external cooler?
