2005 Hyundai Tiburon Owner Comments

problem #2

Tiburon 6-cyl

  • 73,000 miles


2005 Hyundai Tiburon SE V6 std. - clutch replaced under warranty at 42K and again at 53K - 7 mos later clutch failed again. Hyundai states "we've covered 2 times, not covering again". obviously this is an ongoing problem w/this vehicle - I've owned standards all my life, Mazda 189K on original clutch and Datsun 110K on original clutch - have never had to replace a clutch. There are several online complaints regarding 2005 clutch failings not covered. www.allworldauto.com/comments/2005_hyundai_tiburon_comments_and_complaints_25-2223-2005-1.html there is currently a class action suit pending against Hyundai for this exact problem occurring in 2003 Tiburon models. This is something Hyundai has been aware of for years and has ignored. They claim not all the parts of the clutch assembly, kit, etc are covered under their 100K/10 yr warranty - this is a bogus warranty. This situation requires some investigation.

Tiburon 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 16,900 miles
I have an 05 Tiburon that was puchased in October of 05. The clutch will not stop racing when shifting gears. We took it in and they said that the flywheel, baring, and disc, are damaged and are not covered under warranty. The warranty only covers up to 12,000 miles and we have 16,900 miles on the car. My daughter uses it to drive to school (about 4 miles) and to work (about 4 miles). This is ridiculous knowing she doesn't race the car or even knows how to pop a clutch. The paint is coming off the gas cover; the seat belt latch sticks; the door handle scewplate insert comes off and the top of the shifter knob still comes off after having it fixed once before. We had to get the transmission repaired when we first got the vehicle because it would not go into reverse. This is all the problems we have so far. Sincerely, jerry orebaugh
