For Hyundaitech or anyone else with knowledge on a transmission/ warranty problem.
I have a 2000 Elantra that has 100,900 miles. It is a 5 sp manual andwhile driving down the highway at 60 mph the car pops out of 5th gear. Does anyone have any knowledge of this problem. My non-Hyundai mechanic checked it out and said the 'sink rows' were bad for 5th gear. I'm not knowledgable in this area at all. I took it to my local Hyundai dealer and they wanted about $380 for 4 hours to diagnose this by removing the transmission and take it apart. I'm not sure that I want to invest a lot of money into this car. Any advice on this problem--does it sound like sink rows? I called Hyundai and they pretty much told me that it doesn't matter that it is over the powertrain warranty by 900 miles. They mentioned a 'goodwill' program where I pay for it up front and then a panel at Hyundai decides whether or not to reimburse me for any of it. Anyone have experience with the 'goodwill' program and what was your success in getting reimbursed from Hyundai.
