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

Tiburon 6-cyl

  • 88,000 miles

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

I have 90,000 miles on my 2003 Hyundai Tiburon. I have already had the clutch replaced 3 times. Once under warranty at 29,000 miles, the second pocket at 43,200 miles and third at 69,500 miles. Now at 90,000 miles it is going out again. The first two I made Hyundai pay for them but this is getting ridiculous two flywheels at $400 dollars each and two kits at $385 each. There has got to be a problem with the original design. The master cylinder and slave cylinder have never needed replacement according to the dealer. They flush and fill every time. I think this is a scam by Hyundai or ots dealers there is obviously a major defect. Are there any recalls on this car? please help thank you.

Tiburon

  • 31,000 miles
Hello, I'm 26yrs old. I own a 2003 Tiburon GT V6 6speed with less than 80,000 miles. I bought it off of the original owner with only 9,000 miles. Within the 70,000 miles I've driven it, it's had three clutches.? I've owned all manual driven cars since I was 16, I learned how to drive with one. We all know I burned that clutch up a little bit yet I still didn't burn that clutch out. The first clutch I had to replace I paid for the parts. Hyundai took care of the labor which was nice but, I still had to pay for a part that I wasn't at fault for ruining. Now I'm on my third clutch, I had to pay for this one in full because I'm the second owner and Hyundai only covers 60,000 miles. As of 01\06\09 this one is no longer working. There has to be a manufactures defect of some kind. Whether it is the hydraulic lines pumping too much or not enough fluid, the reverse dual mass clutch, or it being the first year they made the car, and this was one of the problems Hyundai had to take care of. I need help please. I've read more reviews on "2003" Tiburon's than I can handle to read, and at least 90% said they had clutch problems. I started looking for a solution and the only thing I could find was Consumer Affairs #, E-mail, and a few other #'s. I called the Consumer Affairs #, and now they told me they canżT help go figure. Their reason was it being to far out of warranty although it was at only 31,000 miles. Now at 77,000 it goes again, what a coincidence. This disaster of a car has cost me around $4,000 and has also put a halt on my life. I had a Jeep payment that I had to surrender back to the bank because I could no longer pay for repairs on the Tiburon and my Jeep. IżM writing this in hope that there is some kind of good will, recall, ect. To help reimburse my loses. Thank you in advance
