I have a 2000 Elantra with about 108,000 miles (just out from under
warranty, of course). The transmission has never given me any problems
and I've had the fluid changed according to the schedule.
The other morning as I was turning into my work, a slight noise started
coming from under the car. I first thought I was dragging a branch or
other object, but didn't see anything. The noise continued, but I
noticed that when I backed up, it didn't make the noise.
If was a very quiet noise. If I had had the radio on, I probably
wouldn't have heard it.
I took it to my mechanic and he drove it and checked it. He said he
THINKS it may be the transmission. Since the transmission shop wants
$450 just to find out, I'm wondering if anyone else has encountered a
similar problem with their Elantra and if so, what the problem was.
