The Hyundai XG300 was introduced in the 2001 model year and renamed the
XG350 for the 2002 model year because the engine size was increased. The
XG350 was dropped after the 2005 model year, replaced by the Hyundai Azera.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. During
rebound, the dummy's head hit the B-pillar.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the head, neck, chest, and left leg
indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this
severity. Forces on the right tibia and right foot indicate that injuries
to the lower leg and foot would be possible. Head acceleration from the
B-pillar hit was low.
The worst Hyundai Tiburon ever.
This car came in the shop I work in. I guess the guy up front didn't look
at the car when writing the work order. Apparently, the customer told the
sales guy that he wanted this rotor installed (he had got it from a
After looking at the car and the part he brought in, I'm pretty sure he
wanted the whole upright installed, thinking it was going to get rid of the
play in the LR wheel (it wouldn't, the problem lies elsewhere.)
Anyway, we didn't do any work on it, parked it, and told the customer he
should have it towed to a junkyard. He got in it and drove it home minutes
later. I sincerely hope he junks this thing. I don't like to think there
are cars like this driving on the same roads I am.
