2006 Hyundai Tiburon Owner Comments

I bought a 2006 Hyundai Tiburon. The car now has only 32,000 miles and I started experiencing problems with the clutch. I brought my car to the dealership to have them inspect a loud ticking noise in Feb.2008. They then proceeded to tell me immediately that it was the clutch bearing making the noise and needed to be replaced. I told them ok and asked them to fix it. Told me that it was a wear and tear item, and was not covered under the warranty. I left my car at the dealership and called later to check on the car. They once again said that the problem was the clutch bearing and I needed to replace the whole clutch for $900. After complaining to Hyundai corporate. The dealer then stated that they did not have enough time to completely diagnose the problem, and could not tell me who the person whom I talked to. I left my car at the dealership on two different occasions. I recently took the car back in for the same problem. Only at this point, the clutch pedal was making a grinding feeling. I have to put about 20lbs. Pressure on the pedal to easily engage 1st gear or reverse for that matter. At my last visit, they mocked me and tried to change the topic. Then told me they would order the clutch bearing and replace it. But ensured me that they clutch still needed to be replaced. When I tried to explain how I do not race the car, the gentleman told me in the ten years he has been there, only one person admitted burning up the clutch. At this point I feel like I have been taken advantage of, called a liar, and denied the warranty services that should have been rendered to me. It seems like this has been a recurring issue. I have yet to have the bearing replaced waiting on a phone call.

Ever since I purchased my 2006 Hyundai Tiburon in March 2006, I have had an alignment problem. My car always pulled right. After spending money for alignment new tires, and rims a friend informed me of a service bulletin. I went to a dealer service department and had corrected my vehicle per the service bulletin. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) website, NHTSA item number 10015876, Hyundai issued a service bulletin number 0550001, for "four wheel alignment ?ex cam xr camber angle adjusting bolts." This has still not fixed my problem. So far I have spent for four alignments, six new tires, and my vehicle only has 16'000 miles. Please ask Hyundai to fix the alignment problem properly and also reimburse us for our expenses.

My daughter has a 2006 Tiburon and has been having trouble with the wheel bearings going out of it. It was in the shop to get the front left wheel bearing fixed about 2 months ago. The month after that she started hearing the same noise coming from the back of the car the passenger side. Well I was in front of her in my car when the passenger side wheel just broke off of the car and made her crash into a guard rail head on she was hurt and is having back problems from the impact 2 of the airbags deployed. This car is a hazard to have on the road. The sunroof also fell apart and the radio does not work half the time. I wouldn't recommend this car to anyone.
