Yes the transmission is serviceable. Let the engine warm up and then check your fluid level. If the fluid is dark, smells burnt, or feels gritty you should change the fluid and filter. Sounds like a clogged filter making first gear slip. Watch your tach and see if it revs high on take off this will show if you are slipping in first gear.

Why does my transmission shudder at a stop and why does it have trouble shifting up?


A waste of time flushing the transmission fluid, the fluid lasts for the life of the vehicle and beyond!
I suspect oil pressure issues if electronic or slipping clutches if mechanical.
Take it in for service.

Sounds like you're low on transmission fluid. Let the car warm up and then check the transmission fluid while it is in neutral at idle while it is parked on a level surface (make sure the emergency brake is on of course). If it is low use only dealer fluid. Hyundai takes a special automatic transmission fluid and if mixed with a universal fluid can ruin their transmissions.

Honestly, while there is a chance that there is a bigger problem, it sounds more like its time for a transmission service. Hard thunking shifts when starting or stopping with no other apparent symptoms on older vehicles can usually be corrected by a transmission flush. if you pull out your tranny dipstick and the fluid is any darker than bright red and/or smells burnt (smell should make you cringe a bit) then take it to a shop and get it flushed out. I recommend a service center that uses a BG power flush unit. These services seem expensive on the surface but only have to be done about once every 3 years and can prevent more costly and involved repairs down the road.

Hard down shifts


Check the transmission fluid level, see if there is any foaming in the fluid which is bad, and condition, If the fluid is low the transmission fluid pressure could be low and if the transmission fluid filter is dirty, that could also be restricted the fluid flow.
The transmission fluid should be bright red like strawberry in colour, if it's dark like burgundy then it's time to change the transmission oil and filter. The hard down shifting could be a servo that is sticking caused by dirt in the fluid, have a Transmission shop service the transmission and scan the car's ECM for any codes that may be causing your shifting problem.
Good luck and hope this helps.
