Hyundai Tucson: Automatic Transmission / Good Driving Practices

  • Never shift the gear from P (Park) or N (Neutral) to any other gear when the accelerator pedal is depressed.
  • Never shift the gear into P (Park) when the vehicle is moving. Completely stop before shifting into R (Reverse) or D (Drive).
  • Do not shift to N (Neutral) when driving to prevent a loss of engine braking and transmission damage that may cause a collision.
  • Never attempt to select a gear that is opposite the direction of the vehicle motion. Check the gear position before driving. Stop the vehicle before shifting to the desired gear. The engine may stop, causing a collision.
  • Do not drive with your foot resting on the brake pedal. Even light, but consistent pedal pressure may result in the brakes overheating, brake wear, and possibly even brake failure.
  • When driving with shifter paddles or using manual shift mode, slow down before shifting to a lower gear. The vehicle may not shift to a lower gear if the engine RPMs are outside of the allowable range.
  • Always apply the parking brake when leaving the vehicle. Do not depend on placing the transmission in P (Park) to keep the vehicle from moving.
  • Exercise extreme caution when driving on a slippery surface. Be especially careful when braking, accelerating, or shifting gears. On a slippery surface, an abrupt change in the vehicle speed may cause the drive wheels to lose traction and may cause loss of vehicle control resulting in a collision.
  • Optimum vehicle performance and economy is obtained by smoothly depressing and releasing the accelerator pedal.


To reduce the risk of serious injury or death:

  • Always wear your seatbelt. In a collision, an unbelted occupant is significantly more likely to be seriously injured or killed than a properly belted occupant.
  • Avoid high speeds when cornering or turning.
  • Do not make quick steering wheel movements, such as sharp lane changes or fast, sharp turns.
  • The risk of rollover greatly increases if you lose control of your vehicle at highway speeds.
  • Loss of control often occurs if two or more wheels drop off the roadway and the driver over steers to reenter the roadway.
  • In the event your vehicle leaves the roadway, do not steer sharply. Instead, slow down before pulling back into the travel lanes.
  • HYUNDAI recommends you follow all posted speed limits.
