problem #3

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

(1) Abnormal Wear on the steering rack wear inside steering rack bushes (2) Soft suspension renew rear Shocks

(3) Knocking noise when depressing clutch (4) Replace 1st and 2nd Gear still knocking noise on suspension

(5) Replace again the rear Shocks and front shocks and coils springs (6) Replace front right head light leaking I took my car in again and received back a report from the mechanic stating that the car is unstable on the road and that the rear shock is not hard enough and that the side shaft has an excessive play and the inner right front SV boot is leaking................

Someone help me as this sounds like a secondhand car. do you agree?

Noooooo this is a brand new car. Now the Kimberley car dealer Manager said nothing is wrong with this car. I must replace the tires. Now my question is do they employ sub standard mechanics or are they trying to get out of this situation.

Hyundai get this message loud and clear - if i had enough money I would have given this car back to you and bought a Toyota!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AND ONLY TWICE THAT FAR AWAY. IT BEEN DRIVEN. HARDLY EVER . DRIVE MAINLY EVERY 3000 MILES TO THE DEALER 90 MILES AWAY TO HAV.E HER SERVICED. i BABY MY CAR IT IS MY JOY AND HARD WORK.

I WAS PULLING OUT INTO DANGEROUS TRAFIC AND IT JUST STOP MOVING I FELT THE CLUCH DO A LITTLE POP.

i'M LUCKY EVERY ONE DRIVING FROM BOTH DIRECTION WHERE ON TOP OF IT AND SAW A PROBLEM. i PAID FOR ALL COVERAGE EVEN LIFETIME SERVICE FROM DEALER, i HAD IT TOWED TO THE DEALER I PURCHASED FROM i AM VERY LOYAL ONLY GO TO MY PURCHASE PLACE, THEY TOLD ME IT WOULD BE 1000.00 TO FIX, I WORK ON CARS i HAVE FIXED CLUTHES, i HAVE NEVER HAD A CLUTCH GO OUT ON ANY OF my cars EVEN MY USED CARS EVEN AT 200,000 MILES . TODAY I AM CALLING HEAD OFFICE IN KOREA. i DID THIS IN 1987 I HAD A PROBLEM WITH THE CATALITIC CLOGING ON MY YEAR OLD hYUNDIA , i TOLD THEM THERE IN KOREA THE DEALER SAID IT was not covered, THEY WHERE VERY NICE AT THE HYUNDIA HEAD QUARTERS IN KOREA AND THEY HAD ME TAKE IT TO THE DEALER AND HAD THEM DO IT FOR FREE. MY FIRST 1986 HYUNDIA HAD 186,000 MILES TILL SHE STARTED LOSING COMPRESSION

i HAVE BOUGHT 3 BRAND NEW AND 4 USED ,hyundias. i HOPE THEY DO THE RIGHT THING . THE DEALER SAID IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE IT WILL BE COVERED BY THE BUMPER TO BUMPER 100,000 MILES OR 1O YEAR WARRANTY. HOW ODD I DIDN'T BREAK HER , THE POP WAS A DEFECT NO CAR JUST BREAKS IT CLUTCH WHEN YOU DRIVE LIKE A GRANDPA

PLEASE IF ANYONE WAnts to copy this and post where you please , one small no body can't do nothing to change things , but where would we be if we do not stand up to issues. families every day are homeless, alot of times it is because large firms are abusing there power and do not care how they hurt anyone from unfair treat ment and taking small peoples money because they can , because they have ways by means that is not right.

The clutch master failed twice on this car within the first four weeks of buying it brand new. The problem was corrected both times.

One year later the dealer is telling me that I 'might, probably' need a new clutch. They want $900 to open it up and diagnose it. If it's wear and tear it's not covered under warranty. I'm trying to explain that the wearing of the clutch is likely caused by the clutch master running on low fluid in the first weeks of the car. The dealer brought this to Hyundai Canada and they have denied the claim. They will cover it if they find a defective part.

My wife and I have both been driving stick for over fifteen years and neither one of us has ever had to replace a clutch on a car!!!

Not really sure where to go next.
