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.
