My veloster just hit 144k miles and while I drive it will switch into sports mode on its own. Even without touching the paddle shifters, the car will stay stuck on a gear. I’ll cycle the car to neutral back to drive or sports to drive and the car will perform as if nothing ever happened. I tried driving it in sports mode and same result will occur it won’t respond to any inputs I make to down or up shift. But switching it back to drive seems to reset the issue. I even disconnected paddle shifters to see if it was sending any signals causing the issue to occur. Some drives it occurs once and other times it can occur 20times within a 30min drive. Wondering if anyone else has had this similar issue?

It's not the paddle shifters, but the Sport mode connector on the shifter itself. DC that and see what happens.

I'm really thinking you're right about the shifter. I've never ever thought about how sophisticated the shifter is.

Do you think this is restricted to the automatic transmission exclusively or does it apply to the DCT also.

I guess access thru the console is the only way to get to the connector. It could be an involved job.

I sure would find it interesting to learn more about this seeing it applies to my vehicle also.

Huh? The "automatic" trans in the Veloster is the DCT.
I think you're correct as far as the newer models go, but earlier models like mine (2013) actually have an automatic transmission. I think the change to the DCT exclusively was 2014-2015.
There, see, you learned something new today.
Now if you want to go a little deeper into the subject, I believe the NAV did come with the DCT earlier on and the Turbo had the automatic transmission because the DCT was thought to be not strong enough for the Turbo. Later on however Hyundai made some tweaks to the DCT and determined it was then strong enough for the Turbo, and as a result stopped using the automatic transmission altogether in the Veloster.

VT is auto until 2015. 2016+ introduced the terrible DCT to the lineup :)

What are you guys talking about? I have a 2012 Veloster and its a DCT.

Read the 3rd paragraph:
2012 HYUNDAI VELOSTER MODEL OVERVIEW
The 2012 Veloster is all-new this year, and Hyundai is going after the sporty compact market. Hyundai is pitting the Veloster against the Honda CR-Z, Kia Forte Koup, Mini Cooper Hardtop, Mini Clubman, and Scion tC.

The new Hyundai Veloster has a unique four-door hatchback design — one door on the driver’s side, two front-hinged doors on the passenger side, and a rear hatch door. Hyundai is marketing its unique door arrangement as a safety feature: rear seat passengers exit curb side. The exterior and interior styling are motorcycle inspired. It also comes well equipped with a whole slew of conventional safety features.

The front-wheel-drive Veloster shares many parts under the skin with the Accent and Elantra and uses the same 138 horsepower 1.6-liter inline four-cylinder engine found in the Accent. The engine is backed by a conventional six-speed manual transmission or a new six-speed dual-clutch manual transmission.
And where in the original post or Eli's post do they say they have a VT?

I am having the same issue did you get repaired.
Either way, I don't believe this problem is related to the type of transmission. It's a problem with the manual shift mode. Because I own a 2012 Veloster with a DCT and a 2013 Kia Forte Koup with a torque converter automatic, both manual shift modes operate the same way. I believe the issue is electrical and has to do with the switch that puts it in manual mode. Because using the steering wheel paddles while the shifter is in regular mode will cause the car to go into manual mode. So something electrical is making the computer put it in manual mode.

Well now, it's pretty evident you did not read my post because of the comment you made.
And the only claim was that he has a Veloster, neither claiming it is a NAV or a VT.

Seems to me you are only trying to stir the pot and not contribute anything helpful.
