Does anyone know or recommend any transmission fluid for the Veloster N? The dealership wants to sell it for $30 a quart. They also told me what goes in is Dual Clutch Transmission fluid (DCT) if that’s true. If it does take DCT I would personally choose Valvoline DCT fluid just because that is the oil I found best suits me for when I do my oil changes.

I wouldn't just pour any ATF fluid in. Would recommend consulting the owner's manual for specifics. Like for the manual versions, it recommends GL-4 70W/75W. In which case, most of us are using Redline MT-LV as that is a direct replacement. And in my opinion, Redline is a much higher quality oil than OEM.

The only owner's manual I could find online was the Veloster Turbo models. Under the DCT section, it actually recommends the same GL-4 70W/75W the manual cars uses. I even looked up what Redline recommends for their 7 speed DCT and it recommends the same MT-LV oil too.

So definitely don't just grab and pour any ATF fluid. Consult the owner's manual to see what type of fluid it recommends.

I actually just ordered redline mt-lv yesterday. I'll let you know how it works out. I was actually going to use an amsoil product but after plugging in my vehicle specs on their site it said they had no products to fit this car. I know many have reported redline to help and that's my hope. I feel like I'm fighting with the shifter in this car half the time. Especially when cold.

A number people have reported that the MT-LV smoothed-out their shifts. I find going into 6th, especially when cold, takes a little extra push. The rest of the gears are fine. I have two quarts of MT-LV in my shop. I am waiting to put more miles on the car before I change the fluid. At 2175 miles, with the car currently up on jacks, I think this is a bit premature.

I know tons of people report the 5th and 6th issue. I've never had that even once. It's all 1st and second. Feels like it's not going all the way in even being slow and purposeful. Once warm, it occurs but far less frequently.

I wanted to add to this as I'm now at 6k miles and whether it's the mileage or the redline fluid or a combination of both, the issues have basically melted away. The shifter is very crisp and smooth and there's really no complaints about it anymore.

Yeah, I did my transmission fluid at 4k. My shifts are great now! I do occasionally have 1st that won't go in but it's pretty rare. I will do the adjustment when I go for bushings and short shifter later on down the line. Very livable now.
