Elantra GLS V4

  • Manual transmission
  • 60,000 miles

Just before the vehicle was due for it's 60K service the clutch started to act up. Like it was going out. Johnson Hyundai in Cary said the clutch was bad due to my wife riding the clutch and the repair is $2000. We have owned Manual transmission vehicles since 1990 when we first started dating. We have never in all those years had to replace a clutch because none if us ride the clutch. When you pump the clutch pedal it works. A symptom of a slave cylinder issue. They refused to look at the slave cylinder. Fast forward 2 years, she is still driving the car with this same issue. Now they claim it's the clutch bearing going out. and still $2000 to fix it. I'll be replacing the slave cylinder and then going to another mechanic if this doesn't fix it. But it sounds like these cars have severe clutch issues.

Elantra GT 1.8L

  • Manual transmission
  • 75,932 miles

I can't believe I have to replace my clutch on my 2013 Elantra GT. I've only been driving it for 5 1/2 years. About 122,000 km on it (city driving which I admit is hard on it). The mechanic said the clutch should be able to go until at least 160,000 km. Very disappointing. Not an expense I was expecting right now. I have to say I've never been super impressed with this car. The only car I've ever bought new.
