Vehicle- Hyundai Santa Fe 2001 2.4L 58000 miles sudden clutch failure due to excessive slippage caused by hydraulic problem in the clutch slave cylinder. Internet research indicates this is a pervasive problem with Hyundai clutches in general. Manufacturer apparently is ignoring the problem. In excess of $2000 in quoted repairs.

Santa Fe 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 24,000 miles
My car is a 2001 4-cylinder 5-speed manual transmission. The engine is too small for the car's weight. I had to have the clutch replaced after only 24,000 miles, which was not covered under the warranty (cost was over $1000). The dealer insisted that I caused the problem by "bad driving". I have driven a stick for well over 12 years, and never had to replace a clutch on any other car.

Complained of clutch not being right 10-3-01 15000 miles, no problem found, always felt wrong, clutch/pressure plate/flywheel in pieces now at 64000 nothing covered under "America's best warranty" car only 3 yrs old. Was told flywheel cost is $1114. + $975 +tax to repair at dealer but didn't trust sales pitch sevice rep was giving about flywheel not being able to be resurfaced before car was even looked at only can be replaced. Decided to have car fixed elsewhere for a cost of approx. $2000.
