2016 Elantra auto trans is in 5th gear at 27 MPH on flat roadway. Defective or not?

Asked by Sep 17, 2019 at 10:10 PM about the 2016 Hyundai Elantra SE Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

At 27 MPH and in 5th gear, the tach shows slightly over 1000 RPM's and
transmission is noisy. The grinding type noise immediately goes away as
speed is increased. Similar noise occurs in other gears when at low end of
RPM range. Noise has steadily increased since purchase. Is the transmission
slowly destroying itself?
