Hi there. I would need to know what model Hyundai you have as well as the engine size to let you know for sure what is going on with your car. Most of these vehicles are equipped with a small four cylinder engine which is typically underpowered. Due to the engines being smaller they will have issues going up hill. When the hill is especially steep the vehicles computer will have trouble downshifting to assist with the power loss. It is possible that there is an issue such as a dirty air filter or a throttle position problem, but most of the time this is a normal condition.
