2006 Hyundai Tiburon Owner Comments

problem #4

Jan 152008

Tiburon SE 3.2L V6

  • Manual transmission
  • 15,000 miles


clutch went out 3 times-this is a problem with the car This car was bought brand new right from the showroom. RPMs would go up to 3000 when stopped at lights. Reported to Hyundai & they could not find an issue. Needed new clutch in 2007 covered under warranty, however, fly wheel cost $2600. + rent-a-car which they were supposed to provide but didn't have any more cars. There reasoning is you need to schedule an appointment. The second time clutch needed to be replaced in 2008. Very jerky movements. Hyundai had to contact Japanese engineers for solution. Third clutch had to be replaced after warranty. I have owned many manual vehicles & never needed a clutch so it's not me. Engine seized due to some part breaking off and it was not the timing belt. Out of warranty and another engine was put in April 2016. Problems with rims causing tires to deflate constantly. Biggest problem with this car is a malfunctioned clutch. This is what caused the flywheel to be replaced at $2600. When the clutch went out again and they did not know how to repair it I should have had a refund of $2600. They sent me home with a clutch when put in first gear causing very jerky movements thrushing passengers to go forward including myself and I have a very bad back. There should be a class action lawsuit on the clutch which causes the flywheel to be replaced. This is very expensive and 100,000 bumper to bumper warranty should include the flywheel but it doesn't. After 3 clutches and problems that Hyundai couldn't fix without contacting Japanese engineers, this should be considered a lemon. RPMs revving on their own while stopped is something that never should occur. They could not find the problem at the time which I feel was caused by a faulty clutch system.
