As long as it's coming from the transmission itself, probably. Just about
the only possible leaks there that wouldn't be covered would be the input,
output, and vehicle speed sensor seals, and of course, impact damage.
If the leak is coming from the cooler hoses, cooler, or radiator, it'll be
your responsibility. If it's leaking in the area of the radiator fitting,
replace the radiator immediately. I've seen a few of these mix coolant
and transmission fluid.

You should only be good up to 60,000 miles. After that, you're out of
warranty. Have you already had your trans fluid flushed and the gasket
replaced? I had mine done at around 70k from the dealership and I
don't remember it being that much...maybe less than $200 for all the

Old Timer / George Smith,
I wasn't clear when I said that. The dealership told me the
transmission is covered up to 60k. Either they lied to me or the
warranty is not the whole transmission. This is what I was basing that
assessment on with respect the transmission leak question. Here's a
snippet from the Hyundai Warranty site:
