Tiburon 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 18,000 miles


I own a 2004 Hyundai Tiburon GT V6 car. I am apart of an online car forum for my specific car. A number of my fellow Tiburon owners and I have had the same problem. Our factory clutches on manual cars have been breaking and not holding the horse power of the car. This is a major concern to me because, it happened to me while driving. This is a huge safety concern because I was not able to control my vehicle to the extent that I originally bought it. This clutch failure put me in risk of an accident and thank god nothing bad happened before it was brought in for a fix. I brought it into Hyundai and they refused to fix the problem. After a week of warranty hell with lawyers and phone calls back and forth they finally fixed the problem. They said that they would never fix this again. They also did say that the clutch "prematurely slipped" (broke).

Tiburon 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 0 miles
2004 Hyundai Tiburon 2.0/ 2.7 V6.(affected years: 2003-2006?) on manual transmission models, clutch slave cylinder contains a "delay valve" that causes "slipping" and excessive wear on clutch components. Removal of said, "delay valve" in clutch slave cylinder is solution to eliminating this excessive wear. From what I have read, there has been no voluntary recall to correct this very simple issue and many people have suffered "massive" clutch failures that also include aftermarket clutch components and flywheels of superior strength over oem. Failure of the clutch could put someone at risk when driving due to total failure, or partial failure of the clutch. I currently have 19500 miles on my car, and am still within warranty, but am told that the clutch wouldn't be covered even if it was failing. That seems to be the story with 99% of many people I have read who also own the 2003-2006 Tiburon. Mine still works at this point, but I don't know how much premature damage there is currently due to the "delay valve". please consider looking into this problem. Hyundai should be held accountable for this failed part and cover it 100 percent. All while recalling all 2003-2006 models and removing this slave cylinder"delay valve".
