2003 Hyundai Tiburon recalls

 

Suspension & Steering, July 17, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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. This could reduce driver control over the vehicle, which may increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and replace the affected front lower control arms.

On 36 vehicles, the driver's seat height adjuster mechanism may interfere with the seat belt wiring, which could cause the seat belt warning lamp or supplemental restraint system lamp to illuminate.
