Is the clutch travel on a santa fe 2010 very short? Test drove one and had to almost floor the clutch and it starts to bite after about an inch of travel is this normal?

hello these Hyundai's do have issues with the clutch master cylinder failing and can be difficult to repair to produce a 'normal' pedalso this sounds like this is what is occurring here so in a way it is kind of normal -however its not right

Would it be a expensive job to have it re-done, or not to touch the car with a bargepole type of job

hello I've come across both types, 1 where the new master cylinder ( £200) fixed it and the 2nd case where the car had everything bar the kitchen sink replaced and it still had a low clutch pedal so probably about 50/50 whether or not to go for it

Can it be driven like this without causing any problems or is it something that needs sorting asap
Expert:  Matt replied 1 year ago.
hello it can be driven like this providing you can get the gears OK if it grinds going into gear I'd avoid this example
