Default Re: Hyundai Tucson - 138,000 kms done and front left axle replaced

Airbag warning problems in Tucson are usually due to a flaky SRS connector under each front seat. Get the vehicle scanned by Hyundai Scanner and it often pin-points the fault to specific location/connector. If it's the connector issue, disconnecting the battery and cleaning the connector with electrical contact cleaner usually helps.

I'm having trouble with the steering wheel, it became extremely hard after I got the power steering pump repaired. The reason to repair the power steering pump was leakage. The guy who repaired the pump ruined it totally and now the steering has become very hard. I'm planning to replace the power steering pump, but the guys at Hyundai are saying it could be the steering rack and that I should try a steering rack overhaul. Since the steering problem started only after the pump was repaired I'm leaning towards replacing the steering pump. Do you guys think it could be the steering rack? If yes any idea how much does that cost?

On a totally different subject, can anyone tell me that should I replace the flywheel when replacing the clutch plate, is that something mandatory in the Tucson.

Reviving this thread as I bought a 2006 tucson and have left it at Bay 6 for some much needed TLC. The car wobbles on braking at >80kmph. Obviously, the rotors are bent. Since the cost of new hyundai rotors is upwards of 20k when you add up OE pads, wondering if any aftermarket rotors are available or rotors from other cars are a bolt on fit. Anyone have ideas?

So I replaced with OE rotors and Brembo brake pads that DV had in stock. This car has expensive OE spare parts - more expensive than my e46 320i was, really. But the fact that it drives like (almost) a sedan, has loads of space and practical features makes you forget that!

So 2 months later, here I am enjoying the ride. Thanks to DV and his hawk eye precision in checking out what's what. The PCV was replaced since there was smoke from the oil dipstick cap on low revs - a Rs.1000 part that had me scared to no end. After an upgrade of tyres, pads, rotors and clutch, my car is going in for suspension overhaul. Lower arms are not bent but driveshaft bearings need a change. If anyone needs part numbers, cost of parts etc, please do not hesitate to ask.

No, I had replaced the clutch twice in the 146000km that the Tuc clocked but never replaced the flywheel.

Congratulations. It's a nice SUV and Bay 6 should be a good choice. DV is a Tucson owner himself so he will give you the best advice.

Yes parts have become expensive of late. Good that DV has alternatives.

Yes PCV is shared with the old Elantra and is not expensive at all. I remember it was @Rs.300 when I replaced mine a few years back.

Default Tuc met with an accident and was scrapped!

Update:

We had an accident a few months ago while on the way to Ratnagiri. The car hit a tree and fell into a ditch (upside down). All 5 of us wearing seat belts (yes, even the 3 passengers in the rear had their belts on as it was a long journey) and survived, though with various injuries that were treated over next 2 weeks in Kolhapur. All have recovered by now. Both front airbags deployed and cabin remained largely intact, but most of the engine bay was smashed. The car was towed after a few days to a dealer in Kolhapur and then eventually to Pune. The insurance process took it's time, the car was assessed as a total loss and has now been scrapped.

My uncle who was in the front had a fracture in the left palm and some impact on the chest (strangely, in spite of the airbag) and was discharged in a couple of days. My sister, her husband and my mom who were in the back seat had major injuries. Sister sustained left hip-bone fracture, her husband had his thigh bone fractured and my mom sustained multiple rib fractures. I think this was primarily due to the fact that the car toppled. Thankfully, nobody got any head injury thanks to seat belts. And good news is that everyone is now slowly back to regular life. I came out almost unscathed, had some pain in my left collar bone, but decided to ignore it so that I could take care of others over the next 2 weeks in the hospital. It seems to have healed by now.

I will badly miss the Tucson, but I am thanking my stars that all of us survived.

Thanks Mayank!
And you are right. The airbags did their job even though they were 11 years old!
Won't be buying anything for now. Will use the Polo more often.

Sorry to hear about the accident Anand. Glad to hear that all involved have already recovered or on the path to full recovery.

Please don't ignore the collar bone ailment. Do get it checked... None of us are getting any younger aren't we?

Sorry about the accident Anand. I happen to stumble across your thread since I didn't have any opinion about Tucson. I read most of it and I am obliged to thank you for all the information. Your experiences and your attachment to your Tuc (as you call it) is amazing. Threads like these really make a difference in knowledge to those looking to learn beyond Swifts and Innovas. The legend of your car will live forever in these pages.

Good luck and wishing your family a quick recovery.

Yes, I am in touch with an orthopedic surgeon.

Thank you @vivee90! 8 years of ownership taught me a lot.
