Since we purchased this vehicle new we have replaced the battery twice, the clutch, fly wheel, slave cylinder,three times, a coolant leak fixed, the window motor and it is currently at the repair shop. We also have had to replace all four tires and have the vehicle aligned. The air bag light is also on at this time. The thing that makes me angry is that a service technician has seen or vehicle twice and said our vehicle was fine. So, why did the clutch go out 10 days later?.
The contact owns a 2003 Hyundai Tiburon. The contact attempted to roll down the power windows while parked but the windows would not operate. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where she was not informed of the cause of failure. The vehicle was repaired. The failure has since recurred approximately six times. After each occurrence, the vehicle was taken back to an authorized dealer to be repaired. The failure mileage was 19,855 and the current mileage was 84,000.
On July 04 2003, we purchased a 2003 new Hyundai Tiburon from philpott motors in nederland. The VIN # is kmhhn65f13u099465. It started on Dec 19, 20031 when the passenger window motor had to be replaced under warranty. Then, on Dec. 22, 20031 the vehicle had a coolant leak that was repaired under warranty. On February 16, 2004 the clutch went out all of a sudden with any warning. To April of 2003. In which all the parts they replaced have a production date of April 2003. In August of 2004 seven months later the clutch went out again on ih10 during noon traffic they would not cover it. The mechanic at transmission exchange told him that was not the case and that he stated that the slave cylinder was probably bent prior to their repairs six months ago. My complaint to philpott that if they agreed to cover the slave cylinder why would they not cover all the charges due to the fact this is a pull/push and if the salve cylinder was bent that it would cause this type of damage to the clutch. They refused to cover it costing $1,920. 85. On September 16, 2005 the battery went out. . In August of 2005 the battery went out again. On the last week of August my daughter brought the vehicle to be serviced and asked why the air bag light was on and the technician told her the car was fine that he did not note any problems and that the light was on because it was telling her that everything was working. On September 05, the clutch started slipping again and we have parked the vehicle. Everyone has been told the exact line. It was the driver and it's a wear and tear item. Like the dealers have been told what update: the Hyundai rep stated that there was not any abnormal wear on my clutch that the flywheel was the problem and that we would have to pay to have it fixed because, the flywheel is not covered under the warranty.
The all-new 2003 Hyundai Tiburon boasted to deliver a perfect combination of stylish design, high quality and outstanding performance. In reality, the new vehicle, which I leased was plagued with numerous handicaps. The knob on stick shift keeps falling off-appears to be broken. Re-attached knob and centered face plate only to have knob fall off again still broken. July 18 2002 a/c fumes coming thru vents this is caused by grease on wheel from band clamp loose off cv boot. July 18 2002 steering wheel shakes at high speed- car sways at rear. Steering wheel off center, they adjusted, still shakes. July 18 2002 park and emergency brake defective. Park brake loose and brake light flashes. Emergency brake loose/does not hold, they fixed both, they are broken again Jan 9th. Dec 18 2002 sunroof will not open requires a new motor and module, which was installed. When I picked up the car I tested it and it still would not open. They said make another appointment in the new year. Dec 18 2002 driver side window defective-goes up very slow yes, power window is dragging. We will order a new one. Jan 10/03 still no part. Bob (service manager) will call me when parts are in. Jan 17th, I called, yes parts are in, as per bob the letter is in the mail. As of Feb 25/03 I have yet to receive that letter. May 15 2002 I bought (from Hyundai showroom) blue neon lights for windshield wipers $22. 59 had their service dept install them $30. The first time I washed my car they fell off. Yes, they were defective. June 11 Hyundai re-installed my old ones and in doing so dented the car roof. Aug 28 2002 with the pending possibility of lay-off I went into the dealership to see what my options were. The manager directed me to call financial lynx leasing CO. Financial lynx directed me to call dealership. The manager told me I could buy out my lease for $6000 at that time. Thank god I didn?t get laid-off. I am not looking to get out of my lease. Sincerely, carrie urbanowicz.

I bought this car in July 2002. It now only has alittle over 8,000 miles. Since I have had this auto I have had to have the doors realigned because they would not close. The radio would just go out. They replaced the radio but 3 months later it happened again except this time the a/c would not put out cold air properly. Come to find out if I cut the a/c off, the radio would come back on. The last few trips to the dealership I had to leave my car for the day. They checked out everything and could not find anything to cause it to be doing what it does. They did change the battery because the car was dying on me at any given time. I've had 3 different recalls sent to me.
The drivers window and or window(s) had become inoperative. The consumer was told by the dealer that the problem was the switch, then was told that the problem wasn't the switch but the regulator, and when the part was placed on, it failed again. Also, the consumer stated while driving, she had heard a bell ringing. Scc.
Hyundai said the exhaust manifold was not covered under the emissions or powertrain warranty which was a lie I have recorded. My seatbelt pops off even though I double check to make sure it's in tight. Hatfield Hyundai said put it in tighter or spray silicon oil in it. My locks will freeze while I'm driving and I cant get out of my car unless the window will roll down. Usally the windows are frozen shut. Hatfield Hyundai it is a normal thing for Hyundais to lock people in their car. He said dont drive it when it's cold or spray ice guard inside the door before driving in cold weather. My car automatic transmission well redline and wont shift into the next gear. Hatfield Hyundai said it was normal for my car to redline and not go past 69miles an hr. I took it to dennnis Hyundai another dealership immediatley after that same day and had their manager ride with me on 6/29/01. He made an appointment on July/2/2001 where it remains. They said they have to get it to act up again even though it already acted up before they will fix it. Hatfield Hyundai fixed the exhaust manifold and says they will fix the seatbelt since I have it on tape they lied. I want you to force Hyundai to fix things they promised to fix in their warranty for other peoples' safety.

My seatbelts get twisted or won't extract or retract 99 out of 100 times. I have had my headlights burnout numerous times and keep having to replace them. They need to be replaced every 2-3 months and it is at my expense as the dealer states it isn't covered under my warranty. One usually blows and then a week later the other side follows, this only happens with my low beams. I will turn my ac on and it will either run hot or if it runs cold at all it only stays cold for a few minutes. The dealer stated it wasn't covered under warranty and wouldn't even look at it. I have had my front driver's side tire lose air and blow out the first time about 3 times now. I have had to replace the tire each time and have bought different manufacturers. The dealer stated it may have something to do with the car. My pwr windows and pwr door locks on the drivers side has had to be replaced a couple of times and still doesn't work. My pwr locks never work and occassionally my pwr windows will. As for the battery portion, the dealer stated it could be the battery combined with other things. My car will all of a sudden not start and I have to have it towed to a dealer. They will hook a computer up to it and seem to get confusing results. They have had to contact the Hyundai corporation numerous times to solve the problem. It has occured several times though so it still hasn't been fixed.

I parked the car. Got out of the drivers side and shut the door. The window shattered. Door was not shut forcefully. Passenger side window off track and raises too high. This may cause window to shatter also. I believe this may have been what happened with the drivers side of the vehicle.

The air bag warning light stays illuminated while driving. When this occurs the driver's side window is inoperative. Although the dealership has serviced the vehicle several times for this issue, the problem recurred.
