So I got a letter in the mail from Hyundai. It pretty much said that there is a recall my tiburon (2003), on the subframe. anyone else get this letter? and what exactly is a subframe?

theyre going to inspect it, and if needed, they will drill holes in the subframe. if its worse then that, then they need to order an entire new subframe with might take a few days.

I have a 2003 Tiburon as well, but haven't gotten the recall letter. Does this mean I am not on the recall? Should I just take it in to the dealer anyways?

if you click the link a few posts up, theres a 1-800 number that you can call, give the representative your VIN number, and they will be able to tell you whether or not your car is on that list. the list consists of between 15000-17000 cars made for that year model (so i was told), so theres a good chance that yours might be affected. i know mine is on that list as well.

Is it just your dealer that is charging you $92? Does anybody know if this is a free check?

I'm getting my inspection this month so I'll probably have them check it out if my car is on the list.

Getting recall done. Found out by carfax and place I got the car at. Had the PA inspection done for my car and the guys did bring the subframe to my attention and showed me. It looked really awful, wouldn't be surprised if they had to replace the subframe and lower control arm.

im planning on buying an 03 tibby...do most of them have the recall letter?
if you go to the link that silvertibbygt posted, there's a phone number there that you can call and give them the vin number to the person you're calling, and they'll tell you whether or not your car needs it.
