Hyundai Venue: Manual Transmission / Manual Transmission Operation

Hyundai Venue (QX) (2020-2021) Owners Manual / While Driving / Manual Transmission / Manual Transmission Operation

The manual transmission has 6 forward gears. The transmission is fully synchronized in all forward gears so shifting to either a higher or a lower gear can be easily accomplished.

WARNING

Before leaving the driver's seat, always make sure the shift lever is in 1st gear when the vehicle is parked on a uphill and in R (Reverse) on a downhill, set the parking brake, and place the ignition switch in the LOCK/OFF position. Unexpected vehicle movement may occur if these precautions are not followed.

To shift to R (Reverse), make sure the vehicle has completely stopped, and then move the shift lever to neutral before moving into R (Reverse).

When you've come to a complete stop and it's hard to shift into 1st gear or R (Reverse):

1. Put the shift lever in neutral and release the clutch pedal.

2. Depress the clutch pedal, and then shift into 1 (first) or R (Reverse) gear.

NOTICE

During cold weather, shifting may be difficult until the transmission lubricant has warmed up.

Using the clutch

The clutch pedal should be depressed all the way before:

-- Starting the engine

The engine will not start without depressing the clutch pedal.

-- Shifting into gear, up shifting to the next higher gear, or down shifting to the next lower gear.

When releasing the clutch pedal, release it slowly. The clutch pedal should always be fully released while driving.

CAUTION

To prevent unnecessary wear or damage to the clutch:

  • Do not rest your foot on the clutch pedal while driving.
  • Do not hold the vehicle with the clutch on an incline, while waiting for the traffic light, etc.
  • Always depress the clutch pedal down fully to prevent noise or damage.
  • Do not depress the clutch pedal again until it is fully released.
  • Do not start in 2nd (second) gear except when you are in slippery road conditions.
  • Do not drive with cargo loaded more than required loading capacity.

Downshifting

Down shift to a lower gear when slowing down in heavy traffic or driving up a steep hill to prevent high engine loads.

Also, downshifting reduces the chance of stalling and helps reaccelerate the vehicle when you need to increase your speed.

When the vehicle is going downhill, downshifting helps maintain safe speed by providing engine braking (brake power from the engine) and results in less wear on the brakes.

NOTICE

To prevent damage to the engine, clutch and transmission:

  • When downshifting from 5th gear to 4th gear, be careful not to inadvertently push the shift lever sideways engaging the 2nd gear. A drastic downshift may cause the engine speed to increase to the point the tachometer will enter the redzone and may cause engine damage.
  • Do not downshift more than two gear at a time or downshift the gear when the engine is running at high speed (5,000 RPM or higher). Such down shifting may damage the engine, clutch and the transmission.

    Good Driving Practices

    Never take the vehicle out of gear and coast down a hill. This is extremely dangerous. Don't "ride" the brakes. This can cause the brakes and related parts to overheat and malfunction...
