#2 - Manual Transmission problem of the 2007 Hyundai Tiburon
My 2007 Hyundai Tiburon clutch is going out one way or the other. I read many of forums stating Hyundai is not taking the cost. All of these forums state that the owners clutches are going out pre-maturely and hyunday states that its the owners driving habits. If you look at all the responses you will see that there is way to many "bad habit drivers" I have not yet taken my car in but I feel I know what is going to be said. I will be back when I know more. When I was driving down the road at about 55 the car made aloud screeching sound and then would not move anymore. After messing with the clutch and attempting to shift the car finally started to move but at a very slow pace. I was in fear of being rear ended as I was on the high way. This problem occurred on Wednesday, Jan. 28, 2009.

#3 - Manual Transmission problem of the 2007 Hyundai Tiburon
The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was KMHHN66FX7_. I was previously the ower of a 2003 Hyundai Tiburon and had to spend over $2000 to replace the clutch at approximately 40,000 miles. There has since been a class action suit against Hyundai for this issue as they knew the clutch was faulty but insisted it was the driver. I have since upgraded to a 2007 Tiburon (before I knew of the severity of the clutch problem) and now at 47,000 am experiencing the same clutch issues. As I can't afford to sell the car I have to prepare to dump an additional $2000 to fix the issue. This issue happened on Jan. 18, 2011.

#9 - Manual Transmission problem of the 2006 Hyundai Tiburon
Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is KMHHN65F26_. 2006 Hyundai Tiburon se v6 has 32,000 miles on it. Never beat or raced. Clutch was working fine one day. I went to go for a ride in my car the next day and couldn't get out onto the road. I barely made it to the side of the road to have the car towed! now the dealership is quoting me $2600 for a repair. The clutch is not covered under warranty but my gut feeling is that this isn't a problem with the clutch! it has to be a problem with the design. Please help!

#10 - Manual Transmission problem of the 2006 Hyundai Tiburon
I have a 2006 Hyundai Tiburon v6 5-speed. The manual transmission broke at 49,000 miles - not just the clutch, but all the major components of the transmission. This is a very common problem with this model - there has already been a class action law suit involving this model, but earlier years (03-04 - same car as the 06). Hyundai will not fix the problem and has not recalled the vehicles. It was 04/29/2006 when this manual transmission issue occurred.
#11 - Manual Transmission problem of the 2006 Hyundai Tiburon
The car involved is a 2006 Hyundai Tiburon. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Hyundai Tiburon is KMHHM65D76_. I have a 2006 Hyundai tiboron and the clutch went after only 33,000 miles. Absolutely unheard of! the warranty that's supposed to be so wonderful, is only for 12,000 miles or one year on the clutch! I have heard about many other people saying how badly made the clutch parts are on the Hyundai's. They should be called out on it, it's a safety issue. This issue happened on Mon., May. 10, 2010.
#12 - Manual Transmission problem of the 2006 Hyundai Tiburon
Clutch on 2006 Hyundai Tiburon has loads of problems. Car barely functions and I have been driving manual transmission my whole life.

#13 - Manual Transmission problem of the 2006 Hyundai Tiburon
The vehicle involved is a 2006 Hyundai Tiburon. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) is KMHHN65F36_. My clutch went out of my car after thirty five thousand miles. I understand that it is a wear item but I know how to drive stick and that is way to soon for it to go out. Now it has been another thirty five thousand miles and it is going out again. I talked to others who have had the same problem. There should be a recall on the 2006 Hyundai Tiburon. When the clutch went out it was fine one day and grabbing at the floor the next it didn't get progressively bad. Other Tiburon owners were only getting twenty five thousand miles out of their clutches, so clearly this is a huge problem. The failure date was May. 1, 2008.

#15 - Manual Transmission problem of the 2005 Hyundai Tiburon
The car involved was a 2005 Hyundai Tiburon. I have an 05 Tiburon that was puchased in October of 05. The clutch will not stop racing when shifting gears. We took it in and they said that the flywheel, baring, and disc, are damaged and are not covered under warranty. The warranty only covers up to 12,000 miles and we have 16,900 miles on the car. My daughter uses it to drive to school (about 4 miles) and to work (about 4 miles). This is ridiculous knowing she doesn't race the car or even knows how to pop a clutch. The paint is coming off the gas cover; the seat belt latch sticks; the door handle scewplate insert comes off and the top of the shifter knob still comes off after having it fixed once before. We had to get the transmission repaired when we first got the vehicle because it would not go into reverse. This is all the problems we have so far. Sincerely, jerry orebaugh. It was 05/19/07 when this manual transmission issue occurred.

I called several Hyundai dealerships and was told that the clutch was going out and that it would not be a warranty fix even with the car only having 18,000 miles on it. I was told that it was because of my driving. I finally found a service manager who was willing to look up the TSB and said that my research was correct but that he could not guarantee me a warranty fix.

In December 2004 while driving my 2003 Hyundai Tiburon gt, the clutch went out and I was unable to shift properly in traffic, this incident almost cause a multi-car collection. I had to coast to the side of the road and turn off engine, shift into 1st gear then start the car. I called the Hyundai dealership for help and they told me that the clutch warranty ran out at 12000 miles, I couldnt afford to pay their high costs so I bought a new clutch and had it fixed by a mechanic I could afford. It runs the same due to the flywheel and the warranty covers up to 50,000 miles --now the dealership is refusing to fix it because another mechanic worked on it. They knew this at the time I called the first time-----I just read the TSB #0440005 the procedure was not follled by them --it says clearly that the clutch and flywheel are deformed and need to be replace if the customer calls in about a clutch problem like I did --they never did--if they did I would never had got it fixed by another mechanic and bought the same factory clutch again that was deformed they never told me. Help please . The failure date was Dec. 14, 2004.
