The contact owns a 2004 Hyundai Tiburon. The contact stated that the steering wheel seized on multiple occasions. The vehicle was taken to a dealer, where it was diagnosed that the serpentine belt needed to be replaced. Additionally, there was a loud abnormal noise heard when driving at various speeds. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where the serpentine belt was tightened yet the failure persisted. The vehicle was not further repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 150,000.

Almost right after purchasing the vehicle, I started experiencing electrical problems. The alarm system would randomly go off and sometimes even lock the doors of the car on it's own. Whether the car was running or not, windows open or shut, did not matter. Later the windshield wiper motor burned out so only the fastest setting works and only when I hold the knob up for the one time wipe. The window motor went out on the passenger side as well. If you were to slam or hit the door, the window will roll down, but not back up unless you pull very hard on it to get it going. The power steering has also began to go out. There are times when it will not stop squealing while I turn the wheel and it is almost pulsing so I can only turn the wheel in tiny increments at a time. The steering squeaks the most when the wheel is turned all the way.
