Tiburon 4-cyl

  • 146,400 miles
Steering had a twitch which mad it a challenge to steer, as a result which led to a crash the passenger front tie rod assembly cracked while driving at 35 mph, and disengaged from the vehicle and the vehicle then dipped to the ground suddenly and bounced causing the vehicle to literally go airborn for a brief moment which then caused the vehicle to go out of control.

Since I've purchased this vehicle, I initially told the dealer that there was something wrong with the steering. They, jeff wyler claimed to have looked at the car and stated nothing was wrong. Now at 44,000 miles, another dealer states that the tie rods have excessive wear and need to be replaced. This issue has been going on for over 4 years and still no resolution. I have since found that there has been a recall, but when I contact Hyundai, they state that my car doesn't fall into that recall. I am upset and confused, that a car that initially had 9700 miles when purchased in 2006 that now has 44000 5 yrs later has excessive wear on the tie rods. I have asked for an explanation, yet I am only getting the run around. I need help!

I recently took my 05 Hyundai Tiburon into the zimbrick Hyundai dealership in madison wi for service. I am having alignment issues with my vehicle and have had them since I purchased the vehicle. I discovered from the dealership that there is a common problem with the emergency brake system which can cause the rear brakes to lock up while driving. They stated they have worked on 7 or 8 recently where they had to replace the assembly. I see no recalls or tsb's on this issue and it is a serious safety issue that should be addressed. I also am having problems with the dealership covering warranty issues. There are tsb's on my car related to alignment issues the dealership is not aware of or are denying exist. I continually get very poor customer service from this dealer along with the westside of madison zimbrick Hyundai location. They constantly do everything they can to get themselves out of having to perform warranty services. I have a severe pull to the right as other have complained about that Hyundai considers to be normal. I feel that it is severe enough to where it creates an unsafe driving condition and could potentially cause an accident. I also have abnormal tire wear causing every set of tires I have bought for the car to only last approximately 15,000 miles. All of these issues are related to alignment problems. Hyundai refuses to even look at until I agree to pay for it due to Hyundai only covering "adjustments" (which alignments apparently fall into) for the first 12,000 miles. So much for my 5 year 60,000 warranty. I have seen other people complain of similar defects in the Tiburons and don't know what is being done about it. I also have other numerous problems that have been fixed on this vehicle ranging from electrical to paint defects. I strongly urge the NHTSA and other governing agencies to look into Hyundai practices and do something to help out the consumers who are stuck with sub par quality automobiles.
