Hello Everyone,
I am new here and am so glad to have found this forum. I have a 2002 Hyundai Elantra with a cracked manifold. I called HYUNDAI CONSUMER ASSISTANCE DEPT. and was given a case # and all that. Was told to take my car to the Hyundai dealer where I purchased it Used,I am the second Owner. Where they told me they Would Not fix It. They say I need An Exhaust Manifold,Exhaust Flex Pipe Purge Vapor Tube At Canister. I am not understanding how it is that ALL these 2002 Hyundai Elantras have cracked Manifolds and Hyundai is Refusing to take responsibility. Can someone help me out here? Can we all get together and Help each other? Obviously there is a problem with these manifolds.

Why don't you call HMC consumer affairs (as mentioned in the letter) and ask them?

I am new to this site so please excuse me if I am not posting properly.I have a 2002 Elantra with a cracked manifold and was told mine is not included in the recall. HMC consumer affairs? Who is that and how do I contact them? I contacted Hyundai Consumer Assistance Dept who sent me to the dealer to have the car checked and was told they will not fix it.I refuse to let this go.

My 2002 Elantra GT has a cracked manifold.

I am the second owner of the car and I have 80K on the car.

Am I "S.O.L." in the matter or do I still have an opportunity for a Hyundai offered replacement?


I am determined to get Hyundai to take responsibility and fix MY car. Not only mine but to step up and fix every other 2002 Elantra with a cracked manifold. Obviously it is their problem and their responsibility. So please,all of you that have a cracked manifold please file a complaint with NHTSA as I have. I'm hoping that will force Hyundai to have no other choice than to Extend the Recall and fix All of our cars.

I have a 1999 Hyundai Elantra that I purchased used in May of 2000. Shortly after buying the car, it would not start. I had it towed to the dealership where I bought it and found out that the exhaust manifold was cracked. It was replaced free of charge under warranty. A while after that, I received the recall notice from Hyundai about the exhaust manifold problem. I took my car into the dealership to have it checked out, even though it had already been replaced. I was told at that time that my manifold was fine, but that if it ever did crack, it would be replaced free of charge under the recall, no matter how long I had the car.

Ah........ did you get them to write that down on a piece of paper? Verbal agreements/statements are almost always worthless.

Dumb question but is the warranty from the manufacture date of the car or from when the notice was sent? I am sure it is from the manufacture date but thought I would ask since I have a 2000 elantra and just found the crack LOL.

Will also run it by the dealer since I have to go by this coming week to get fuel injectors. Will post what they say. BTW, I think it is crazy that the injectors are cheaper from the dealer than from any of the parts stores and no one (parts store or dealer) has any in the state. Oh well.
