    The automatic transmission on my 2001 Accent will sometimes thunk when
    I come to a stop. Same thing when I shift from neutral to drive with
    the brake pedal down. Had the fluid checked and it is good. What is
    going on?

  2. Its OK so long as it runs fine. If anything should happen, are you
    still covered by the warrenty? If so, I wouldn't even worry about it.

    The odometer is near 100,000 km. I will ask my dealer about the
    warranty left on the 2001 Accent. It is running fine except for the
    thunking noise. Pretty bad if this is considered normal.

    Normal? NOT ON YOUR LIFE.
    Take it in for service. Have the service guy take a ride with you.

  5. But Andy, the problem is dealerships don't normaly honor the warranty
    unless the car isn't driveable.

    well if trans shifts ok and all the concern is the thump open hood have
    someone set in car and put trans in gear park to rev and rev to n to drive
    see if the motor kick up farther than would be normal maybe a broken mount
    causing your bang

    Take it in, have them look at it, you want a history of problems
    documented even if they do nothing now. Your tranny will probably fail
    with 10k miles. :) Hyndai auto-trans fail a lot.

    Most dealerships honor the warranty on any warrantable item even if the car
    is completely operable. If they don't, call the Hyundai customer
    assistance line.
