2003 Hyundai Tiburon Recalls

Hyundai is recalling 2001–2003 Elantra and Tiburon vehicles in areas of the country with heavy concentrations of road salt usage. Corrosion and thinning of the steel in the front lower control arms may progress to a point where the panels become perforated, which can cause a fracture between the ball joint and pivot attachments to the chassis.

Only problem has been a constant window motor needing replacing on the driver side.Lighting is not as good as my 99 was. Would have rather had the projector lamps that had.Road noise is noticeable but to be expected in a harder suspension as this has.Cornering is great.Overall a good car for the money.Gets good mileage with the proven 2.0 4 cyl. 30+
