2005 Hyundai Elantra from North America
Many design faults and low quality
My wife's elantra needs a new clutch at 19,000 miles. The worker at Rick Case Hyundai laughed and said it would cost $2000.00 to fix and was not on warranty. I bought two cars, xg350, and elantra on my son's recommendation. Since then he has had a blown engine and various electrical problems. I have just finished reading many e-mails with the same problem on early clutch burnouts. Beware.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

My Hyundai Elantra is still on its original clutch and my odometer just rolled over 100,000 km. Maybe you are hard on your clutch due to driving style?

I have a 2005 Hyundai Elantra CRDI and the clutch now seems weak. The car has covered barely 35000 Kms and is still under warranty. The car trembles when acceleration is given although for a short period of time. The dealer has advised to me to replace the clutch which is outside warranty.
