I can't provide with that, I had an auto. But should there be any doubt as to the faithfulness of Hyundai-Tib clutches, obviously, it would behoove them (Hyundai at large) to remove any such questions. Perhaps try doing a google search for "Tiburon Clutch 2007" or combinations like that and see what pops up for 2007, and or try other search engines like dogpile (gee what a name etc. as well. The Hyu-Guys should want to be able to assure you of safety so you can enjoy driving . . without reservations. They should say: "Hy U, our customer and responsibility, without you, we're nothing." Best wishes, Rich

we had to replace two clutches in our 2004 tiburon before it had 18,000 miles. there was a flywheel problem which Hyundai has yet to recognize and reimburse costs. many people have had the same problem. we dumped our Tiburon and will never by another Hyundai because of their non-action. (a class action suit is pending)

I have gone to the dealership where I bought the tiburon and was told the same information, unless it happens again there is nothing they can do.
I inquired about the many complains regarding the clutches for Tiburons in 2003/2004 and was told those were bad drivers.. but it's hard to believe there are so many bad drivers.
In your case, what was the reason to replace the clutch, was it just worn out? Did it happen suddenly or it took time?

i have a 2005 gt tib that only has 28000 miles on it and the clutch is already going out on me. i called the dealer and they said it wasnt under warranty.so now im trying to find an affordable aftermarket clutch.they said basically that i don't know how to drive because it shouldnt go out that fast.i was wondering if anyone had any advice.

dump the car while you can.
see my earier message. 3 clutches in 28,000 miles...not good.
had many standard clutch cars in many years of driving including a mitsubishi with 176,000 and never an adjustment.
will never own nor recommend a hyundai again.
(have a Honda & Acura now)

Could somebody give me more details about how the clutch failed? What part exactly, the flywheel, the linings, something else?

The same thing happened to me today, except the clutch didn't come back up. I had to be pushed across an intersection. Now that i turned the car off i cant restart it because the clutch has to be in for the car to start. Car on side of road as we speak....
