2013 Hyundai Elantra 4dr Sedan

148-horsepower 1.8L I4 6-speed shiftable automatic FWD

43000 mi Shifter stuck in park, wouldn't move tried multiple solutions. AAA mechanic forced it into drive, worked ok after that. Took to dealer next business day - they replaced a clip that may have been part of a recall. Has worked fine since. Sorry, don't know the actual part names. 
44000 mi Bad switch in transmission selector console 
19000 mi I had a TSB performed that replaced a broken plastic axle washer with a metal one. What prompted this was a clicking sound on acceleration from a start, and lift throttle conditions. 
30200 mi Transmission temperature sensor needed to be replaced. 
34000 mi The car shifted hard into every gear up and down. Dealer result the adaptive learning and the car drives fine. 
42000 mi Faulty transmission temperature sensor was causing hard shifting in all gears, up and down. This happened back in Nov. without throwing a code. They did adaptive learning and it was better. This time it threw codes. 
80000 mi recall...now getting a knocking from the transmission like a valve spool sticking...nuther trip to the dealer is scheduled. NOTE: this is the only major issue in 80K miles! EXCEPT for the LOUSY MILEAGE--28 to 29 MPG on cruise/car pool lane 
99000 mi Lost the paddle shifter...dealer wanted $700 to fix. Found a manufacturer's TSB on this problem, but dealer still refused to deal with it. Had prior problems with the shift lockout preventing starting. 
117000 mi

US $700
After previous repair of the transmission lockout on the ignition, the sport mode no longer worked. The dealer wanted another $700 to repair it.

9920 mi Transmission slips between gear 2 and 3 (6 speed manual). Electronic sensors do not "lock" in the gear.
