Hyundai Tiburon Recalls

Hyundai Recalls Certain 2001–2003 Vehicles Due to Corrosion on Front Lower Control Arms

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.

Steering Gear May Have Internal Cracks

The steering gearbox assembly's left and right inner ball joint assemblies may contain internal cracks in the material. This may allow the inner ball joint to break away, separating the tie rod from the steering gearbox. This would prevent steering control to the wheel with the separated tie rod, which could cause a crash. Dealers will replace the steering gearbox assemblies free of charge. All owners were notified by telephone on April 8, 2005, and instructed not to drive their vehicles. Hyundai arranged for the pickup and return of the vehicles. The Hyundai recall number is 069.
