at 30000 miles the clutch and associated parts self destructed, now at
60,000 miles dealer says it needs new flywheel and more parts. I have
heard that there is a class action suit about this very thing...anyone
well...I found web site that talks about it. pages and pages of complaints
about the 03 Tiberon clutch and flywheel and mostly Hyundai won't replace
it. Caviet emptor?
here is the site:
Some real horror stories in there! It sounds like the "delay valve" in
that slave cylinder is at least partly to blame. What a crock -- I've
driven stick-shift cars that got 100,000+ miles out of the clutch, and
then only the clutch disc itself would be worn. (Though if you're
going to go to the trouble of replacing that, SOP is to also replace
the pressure plate and throwout bearing, at least.) The stories of
flywheel failure are particularly troubling, I've *never* had to
replace a flywheel, at worst I've seen them need to be resurfaced and
they frequently don't even need that unless the clutch disc wears down
to the rivets. I'm sure glad our '06 Sonata has the automatic
transmission, that they pretty much have to fix if it breaks!!
