My daily is a 2005 1.6 hyndai accent with a manual transmission.

I have come across a 2009 1.6 hyndai accent with an automatic transmission that is being parted out.

Would it be possible to use the 09 automatic transmission in my 05?

Normally I'd prefer manual but I'm in delivery and that is the one situation I want an automatic if I could pull it off.

I done a fair number of tranny swaps in other cars, haven't done a hyndai yet and was hoping someone here might have some experience with this.

Looks like you may just have to try it yourself & do the build thread. It should be a bolt-up for one who's been there & done that, but if you'll need the car next-day ... right?

I'm starting to think 6 spd swap myself. My 5 spd '04 does just fine on state highways @ 55 to 60 mph, but needs longer legs for higher speeds - like tearing around Cincinnati on 275 where you're just gonna get run over if you're not doing 80.
