On the way home it would barely shift gears and was shaking and making a faint noise when at idle. Worst vehicle I have ever owned, or driven. Was retorqued to factory spec. They made an appointment for me. Her Tuscon trans has been acting crazy ever since she hit about 40k miles.
On September 16, 2005 the battery went out. They had replaced the bearing, the clutch plate and the clutch. I purchased this vehicle with the hopes of using it for a family vacation to Florida in April. Something is very very wrong, Hyundai is fully aware of these issues yet seems to have done nothing at all to remedy the issues and continue to put these transmissions into the new models. Tell that to everyone who owns a Lemon? I test drove a 2018 Tuscon and loved it until my last left-hand turn at a stop sign. After no change, field engineer stated vibration in drivetrain is normal for vehicle and no additional repairs will be performed.
Hyundai usa was contacted and had been told that my bumper to bumper 100,000 extended warranty would cover the repair. Ok how much are the bushes and where to get them from? Dealer diagnosed bad synchros causing 5th gear to grind. It tends to rank lower in quality assessments by consumers. 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. 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. Drove it home with no issues but now we are resigned that we will have to drive it until it breaks so they can no longer claim nothing is wrong.
Dealer scanned the transmission codes-there were none and was told that the transmission was acting as the manufacturer intended. Transmission still has synchro issue - not dealt with. So, Hyundai is faced with both a problem and a huge opportunity. Dealership could not reproduce problem. That's why the dealer tells you to drive harder. I have found several dozen consumers complaining of the same thing. New News that is Really News.
Dealer performed multiple tests and concluded the second drive shaft was the issue. The first time it went out they had the car for 3 weeks and returned to car to me and then 10 days later the car went out again. To the shop, could not replicate. I hope you can do something about it. The dealer, replaced the shifter cables. I did make it home, but barely.
This is thanks to a dual-clutch transmission that allows the ease of an automatic transmission, while also providing shifting control to the you, the driver, if you so desire. They looked at it and said i need a new transmission. This time it threw codes. They'll investigate clutch noise when they're replacing the transmission. The factory upgraded them to metal washers. I sure wish it was.
Lots of metal particles in oil. When I got it in there, it had not been updated correctly he said they would take care of it and then said they got it and it was a good thing too as they were also stalling because of excessive outside temperatures. The clear coat on my roof also began to exhibit spot bonding loss small air bubbles under the clear coat , dealership is getting the top resurfaced and clear coated under warranty. I really liked that car. Now, on the first real cold snap of the winter, my car wound not start.
I walked out of there and went to another dealer. Boot had been worn previously, so shaft was exposed to dirt, etc. Manual transmissions do slightly better, performing the same acceleration in 11 seconds. Not quite the Hyundai quality I expected. Yea something is very fishy, the fact that our Tucson had zero issues for so damn long after the 2016 recall, and only had issues after taking it in for the transmission reprogramming.
