    I have a 2004 Elantra GT with a 5 speed trans. The car runs great
    but I'm having a problem when pulling out from a dead stop. When the
    car is cold it will pull out fine but after it warms up it seems to me like
    you have to give it allot of gas to get it move without stalling. The car
    only has 20000 miles and the clutch is not slipping but the gas pedal
    seems very sensitive. I was told there may be a TSB out that would
    solve this problem but the local dealer said he hasn't heard of it.
    He also said that the Elantra is a heavy car and that having to rev
    the car to 2.5 or 3 grand to pull out is normal. I have driven many manual
    transmissions and that doesn't seem normal to me.

  2. That is a good clue to his credibility.

    "He also said that the Elantra is a heavy car and that having to rev the

    No, this is not normal, and the Elantra is not a heavy car. Although the
    dealer is right that there are no TSBs relating to reprograms for this
    issue, there's definitely a problem. I don't have a good sense of exactly
    what's happening, but I can guarantee there's either a problem with the car
    or your driving. Based on your original post, I'm leaning toward the car.
