2007 Hyundai Tiburon Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 112012


  • 48,800 miles


I am the sole driver of a 2007 Tiburon SE. Two years ago, with only 25,685 miles on it, the car had clutch failure, was jerking when going into 1st gear, and not gliding when switching through the other gears. I took it to a dealership week and was told that they would have to take it down to the transmission which would take about 7 hours to do, and then there would be about a 10-30% chance that the problem would be due to driver error, in which case, I would be responsible for the cost of diagnosis (about $700) plus the repair. If the problem was deemed to be a defective part, then it would be covered under warranty. My first car in high school was a simca (stick shift). Then I drove a Toyota truck, then a Ford Ranger truck, then a Ford mustang. All of which were stick shifts which I drove about 7 yrs each, and none of which ever had a clutch problem. To be told that I may have caused this problem by the way that I drive was somewhat insulting. Due to my persistence, the clutch was repaired under warranty. Now 2 yrs later, the same thing has happened again, and I am being told the same thing by Hyundai. I am 54 yrs old with over 40 yrs experiencing of driving cars with manual transmissions! now that I see that there are so many others with this issue, apparently, a class action suit was settled on the 2003 Tiburon clutches. They no longer make the Tiburon, perhaps there were just too many issues with them. Please help; this is happening to too many people and something needs to be done about it.
