2003 Hyundai Tiburon Recall

Item Affected:
Date Announced:
Description of Recall:
On certain passenger vehicles, the driver seat belt buckle wiring could be damaged by interference with the driver seat cushion height adjuster mechanism. Damaged wiring could cause the seat belt warning lamp or the air bag wiring lamp to illuminate. It could also cause the air bag to open, preventing air bag deployment. Nondeployment of an air bag could increase the risk or severity of injury in a crash.
Action Need To Fix It:
Dealers will install a new driver seat belt buckle, if necessary, and will place a protective cover over the driver seat belt buckle wiring to prevent damage from occurring. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during January 2003. Owners should contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.

2003 Hyundai Tiburon Recall

Item Affected:
Date Announced:
Description of Recall:
On certain passenger cars and sport utility vehicles, the rear brake tubes pass behind the front suspension crossmember. Two steering gearbox mounting brackets are welded to the crossmember. On vehicles equipped with an antilock brake system (ABS), the rear brake tubes could contact both steering gearbox mounting brackets. On vehicles that are not equipped with ABS, the rear brake tubes may contact only the left mounting bracket. Contact between the rear brake tubes and the steering brackets could cause wear and corrosion that could result in brake fluid leakage. Fluid leakage could result in reduced braking capability, increasing the risk of a crash.
Action Need To Fix It:
Dealers will reposition the rear brake tubes so they do not contact the mounting brackets, install brake tube clips to control the location of the rear brake tubes, and apply anti-corrosion material to the tubes in the areas where contact with the mounting brackets may have occurred. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during the third quarter of 2003. Owners may contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.

2001 Hyundai Tiburon Recall

Item Affected:
Date Announced:
Description of Recall:
On these passenger vehicles, the driver and front passenger seat belts may not extend and retract smoothly through the D-ring guides mounted on the body pillars aft of the doors. If the seat belts do not extend and retract smoothly, they may twist in the D-ring guides and make it inconvenient to extend and retract the seat belts. If the seat belts are inconvenient to use, the seat occupant may not be inclined to wear the seat belts properly, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Action Need To Fix It:
Dealers will install a stopper over each front seat belt D-ring guide to assist the seat belt to smoothly extend and retract. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Dec. 10, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.
