Luckily driving slowly...applied my brakes and the passenger wheel turned inward causing the car to hop. The lower control arm on that side had rotted and failed leaving no control to steer that wheel. Car was towed and repaired at a aaa repair station. Have the rotted part(the lower control arm). I never received a recall for this from Hyundai.

Tiburon 6-cyl

  • 44,000 miles
Clutch failed at 44,000 miles after buying car used. Service department would not fix, stated it was wear and tear. Cost $1500 to fix. Airbag light stays on, past 65,000 so service department wont fix it unless I pay for it. Hatch back latch wont work, $200 to fix that. Headlights burn out every other month. Brought car to service center because of a noise in the front of car. Said they couldnt hear anything. 2000 miles over my warrentee brought car back because it was getting worse, said it was front wheel assembly and would cost $1000 to fix. During cold weather emergency brake sticks took it in and they couldnt find anything wrong, go figure. Seats wont latch sometimes after letting someone out from the back. Is there a end to the problems that I have with this Hyundai.
