Before Driving

Before Entering the Vehicle

  • Be sure all windows, outside mirror(s), and outside lights are clean and unobstructed.
  •  Remove frost, snow, or ice.
    Visually check the tires for uneven wear and damage.
  •  Check under the vehicle for any sign of leaks.
  •  Be sure there are no obstacles behind you if you intend to back up.
Before Starting
  • Make sure the hood, the trunk, and the doors are securely closed and locked.
  •  Adjust the position of the seat and steering wheel.
  •  Adjust the inside and side view mirrors.
  •  Verify all the lights work.
  •  Fasten your seatbelt. Check that all passengers have fastened their seatbelts.
  •  Check the gauges and indicators in the instrument panel and the messages on the instrument display when the ignition switch is in the ON position.
  • Check that any items you are carrying are stored properly or fastened down securely.

To reduce the risk of SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH, take the following precautions:

  • ALWAYS wear your seat belt. All passengers must be properly belted whenever the vehicle is moving. For more information, refer to “Seat Belts” in chapter 3.
  •  Always drive defensively. Assume other drivers or pedestrians may be careless and make mistakes.
  •  Stay focused on the task of driving. Driver distraction can cause accidents.
  •  Leave plenty of space between you and the vehicle in front of you.

NEVER drink alcohol or take drugs and drive.
Drinking alcohol or taking drugs and driving is dangerous and may result in an accident and SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH.
Drunk driving is the number one contributor to the highway death toll each year. Even a small amount of alcohol will affect your reflexes, perceptions and judgment. Just
one drink can reduce your ability to respond to changing conditions and emergencies and your reaction time gets worse with each additional drink.
Driving while under the influence
of drugs is as dangerous as or more dangerous than driving under the influence of alcohol.
You are much more likely to have a serious accident if you drink or take drugs and drive. If you are drinking or taking drugs, don’t drive. Do not ride with a driver who has been drinking or taking drugs. Choose a designated driver or call a taxi.


Key Ignition Switch (if equipped)

To reduce the risk of SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH, take the following precautions:

  • NEVER allow children or any person who is unfamiliar with the vehicle to touch the ignition switch or related parts. Unexpected and sudden vehicle movement can occur.
  •  NEVER reach through the steering wheel for the ignition switch, or any other control, while the vehicle is in motion. The presence of your hand or arm in this area may cause a loss of vehicle control resulting in an accident.

Hyundai Elantra 2023 Dual Clutch Transmission and Brake System User Guide

2023 Hyundai Elantra Dual Clutch and Brake System

Dual Clutch Transmission

Hyundai Elantra 2023 Dual Clutch Transmission and Brake System1

  • Depress the brake pedal and press the shift button while moving the shift lever.
  • Press the shift button while moving the shift lever.
  • The shift lever can freely operate.

Dual Clutch Transmission Operation

The dual-clutch transmission has 7 forward speeds and one reverse speed. The individual speeds are selected automatically in the D (Drive) position.

To reduce the risk of serious injury or death:

  • ALWAYS check the surrounding areas near your vehicle for people, especially children, before shifting a vehicle into D (Drive) or R (Reverse).
  • Before leaving the driver’s seat, always make sure the shift lever
    is in the P (Park) position, then set the parking brake, and place the ignition switch in the LOCK/OFF position. Unexpected and sudden vehicle movement can occur if these precautions are not followed.
  • When using Manual Shift Mode, do not use engine braking (shifting from a high gear to lower gear) rapidly on slippery roads. The vehicle may slip causing an accident.
  • To avoid damage to your transaxle, do not try to accelerate in R (Reverse) or any forward gear position with the brakes on.
  • When stopped on slope, do not hold the vehicle with the accelerator pedal. Use the service brake or the parking brake.
  • The dual-clutch transmission can be thought of as an automatically shifting manual transmission. It gives the driving feel of a manual transmission, yet provides the ease of a fully automatic transmission.
  •  When D (Drive) is selected, the transmission will automatically shift through the gears similar to a conventional automatic transmission. Unlike a traditional automatic transmission, the gear shifting can sometimes be felt and heard as the actuators engage the clutches and the gears are selected.
  •  The dual-clutch transmission adopts a dry-type dual-clutch, which is different from the torque converter of the automatic transmission. It shows better acceleration performance and increased fuel efficiency while driving but initial launch might be little bit slower than the automatic transmission.
    As a result, gear shifts are sometimes more noticeable than a conventional automatic transmission and a light vibration during launching can be felt as the transmission speed. This is a normal condition of the dual-clutch transmission.
  • The dry-type clutch transfers torque more directly and provides a direct drive feeling which may feel different from a conventional automatic transmission. This may be more noticeable when launching the vehicle from a stop or when traveling at low, stop-and-go vehicle speeds.
  • When rapidly accelerating at a low vehicle speed, the engine rpm may increase highly depending on the vehicle’s driving condition.
  • For smooth launch uphill, press down the accelerator pedal smoothly depending on the current conditions.
  • If you release your foot from the accelerator pedal at low vehicle speed, you may feel strong engine braking, which is similar to manual transmission.
  • When driving downhill, you may use Sports Mode or press the paddle shifters (if equipped) to downshift to a lower gear in order to control your speed without using the brake pedal excessively.
  • When you turn the engine on and off, you may hear clicking sounds as the system goes through a self-test. This is a normal sound for the dual clutch transmission.
  • During the first 1000 miles (1,500 km), you may feel that the vehicle may not be smooth when accelerating at low speed. During this break-in period, the shift quality and performance of your new vehicle is continuously optimized.

Due to transmission failure, you may not continue to drive and the position indicator (D, R) on the cluster will blink. Contact an authorized HYUNDAI dealer and have the system checked.
