I just bought a used 2016 Tucson and noticed the same happening with mine. the mileage is at 32K miles. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!


I kept a log of when the noise happened and in what driving conditions to share with the dealership. I also kept my phone video on recording mode when I drove and was able to capture the noise in a video. The problem got so bad that my car would stop moving when I tried to accelerate from a stop leaving me sitting in the road with oncoming traffic as I pulled out. The dealership replaced my transmission after I provided the above evidence.
