    I am looking into buying a 2003 V6 Tiburon and from everything i have been
    reading it sounds like a great car for the money. However, I recently
    started coming across many dissatisfied owners complaining that their
    clutches were going bad (with minimal to no abuse) and Hyundai was refusing
    to pay/repair them as "wearable items." Regardless of the fact that clutches
    do in fact wear out, they should not be going bad within one year of
    purchase on a new car. Some have speculated that this is because the v4
    clutch was put into the v6 - I have no idea if this statement bears any
    credibility. If there are any owners out there have had any experience with
    this car and / or this problem who can shed some light i would be very
    appreciative. I really like the looks, price, performance of this car but
    do not want to get myself into a car with built in problems and a company
    that i can not count on to correct them.
