The Hyundai Elantra, a compact car available in manual and automatic transmission, was introduced in 1990. According to Edmunds.com, the Elantra offers solid "performance and reliability," but second generation (1996 to 2000) models have been known to experience manual clutch problems.

Hyundai technical service bulletins (TSBs) indicate that the manual clutch assembly is a common trouble spot in Hyundai Elantra models. A faulty clutch assembly will likely result in difficulty shifting gears and/or gearbox failure.
Although the clutch assembly may fail at any time, there are several warning signs. A failing clutch may exhibit shuddering and/or slippage. Additionally, the clutch may become difficult to depress, which may require extra force from the driver.
Any leaks should be diagnosed and repaired prior to addressing the clutch assembly, because engine oil or transmission fluid leakage may damage the clutch. Replacing the clutch assembly usually consists of replacing the clutch disc, clutch pressure plate and the clutch release bearing.
