Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

2003 Hyundai Tiburon Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 142007

Tiburon GT 2.7L V6

  • Manual transmission
  • 46,800 miles


I purchased my 2003 Hyundai Tiburon brand new in April of 2004. I have had some minor problems with the vehicle which Hyundai has always fixed under warranty. The big problem occurred recently. The clutch sticks intermittently even though I have depressed the clutch pedal all the way to the floor and have taken my foot off of the Gas pedal. This a serious problem. I have complained 3 times to the dealer I bought the car from and the dealer keeps telling me to make it happen. I keep telling them the problem is intermittent (It does occur all the time). The car has 46800 miles on it and I am afraid I am going to damage the transmission if I keep grinding it out gear when the clutch sticks. The car is under Hyundai's standard 5 year 60,000 mile bumper to bumper warrenty and 10 year 100,000 mile power train warrenty. The research I have done so far indicates Hyundai is aware ot the problem and knows that it is a manufactures defect with the clutch and flywheel. This is a big ticket item to fix for either Hyundai or myself depending on whether or not I can get Hyundai to honor their warranty. If I can't get satisfaction from the Hyundai dealer, I am considering picketing the dealership with a sign that says "Hyundai does not honor it's warranty".
