I bought a 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe, standard 5-speed. Since that time I have had to replace the clutch twice. Now I am replacing it again as it was damaged by the fly wheel. A new fly wheel costs $1500. 00. I have made extensive efforts to find a used one. Most of the salvage yards tell me that they don't have one because it is a frequent problem and everyone is looking for one. My mechanic tells me most fly wheels are mounted to the engine and don't have this problem. Also most fly wheels cost under $100. 00, so most warranties do not cover the fly wheel. It seems this is a manufacturing problems since it happens frequently.

I own a 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe. It broke down on April 29th, 2006. My car was brought to fucillo Hyundai in schenectady, new york. My car improperly diagnosed here as having a worn clutch. When I declined to have my car fixed at this location and took it to opitz transmission, it was discovered that the flywheel was broken as well. I contacted fuccillo, who declined to have the flywheel fixed under the warranty agreement that came with the purchase of the car. This warranty agreement does not state that the flywheel is not covered. I also contacted Hyundai motor America and spoke with two different people. One told me the part was covered under warranty and should be fixed, another told me the part would not be covered. The cost of the flywheel was $1276 plus tax and could only be ordered through a Hyundai dealership. I had my car fixed by opitz transmission in schenectady, NY. Opitz transmission agrees that the flywheel was poorly made and should have been covered under the warranty. I have contacted the attorney general's office, they forwarded my letter and information to the nys motor vehicle safety division, who in turn told me to contact this web site. I have letters, receipts, and information concerning this matter that I would like to forward to someone in this division.
