27 April 2015 2005 Hyundai Tiburon Around 70,000 miles on my 2005 hyundai tiburon, my mechanic friend noticed that the problem i was needing a new clutch. we purchased a clutch kit from duralast/zoom manufactured these parts. the clutch change in a hyundai tiburon is pretty expensive and $1025 was the cheapest i was quoted. the car seemed to be running fine for three days and then all of a sudden my clutch pedal had no resistance against it while i was driving through an intersection and would only shift if i "hard shifted" the clutch or if i pressed down on the clutch pedal as hard as i could. luckily, the people driving southbound while i turned into their lane had narrowly swerved around my car. i could only imagine if their was a different vehicle coming since i just so happened to be babysitting my friends daughter that day! when i took my vehicle just up the road to the local hyundai dealer, they told me the part was "mislabeled" and in the process the clutch was placed in the car backwards. this "mislabeled" clutch in turn damaged the flywheel, master cylinder, and slave cylinder and i had to pay $3000 more to get my car fixed. auto zone and the hyundai dealer both told me to talk to the manufacturer since the part is "defective". finally, around 6 months later of constant phone calls, i get a hold of the right people through zoom manufacturing. they offered me a check for $253. when i talked to the manufacturer about this dilemma, he told me that this is all they can do and "we have honored the claim within the terms and policy with our customer." regardless of zoom manufacturing's terrible customer service, i want to just make sure that these parts are no longer sold to the population. i asked many people in their department if the part was recalled so this didn't happen to someone else and no one gave me an answer. also, my car is now at 82,000 miles and the clutch is already slipping.

26 April 2015 2011 Toyota Sienna For every maintenance service through toyota care, i pointed my concerns on a steering "pop" sound while making u-turns under very low speed, and a sense of steering unstability on highways under windy conditions, as well as wearing tires rapidly. all the time the dealer´s technicians answer was: "a green report for every safety point, suspension and aligmment was proof of no problems at all". i am replacing 4 tires (to serve 65 000) at 45 000 miles totally worn out with uneven patterns specially the ones at front wheels, even following regular rotation program. i think would be good to post this imformation, knowing others concerns in the same matter and to bring the manufacturer´s attention for possible recall in this issue.
