love the car, I brought it two months ago from Melbourne (2014) it only has 150,000kms on the clock. I had to fix the passenger window which cost me nothing, just some time as well as a cracked manifold which we ordered a new one for $150 and some time to fix the windshield wiper switch (stalk), the car came with a new windshield and battery but will need a/c re gassing ($200) it is super comfy and I highly recommend getting one P.S I got it for $1,600AUD

Ok little car. It will be the last hyundai i buy. Problems with it. every 60,000 you must replace the altenator. It causes powersurges and blows headlights. i've had three wheel bearings go out. I baby my car and have nothing but problems. it over heats even though i have changed my radiator, thermostat and water pump, and i change my fluid every year. It rattles like crazy.. Dont get one. i do have 160,00 on it




12 years no trouble -

Vehicle: 2000 Hyundai Tiburon 2dr Hatchback

I bought my 2000 Tiburon April 2000. It was my first brand new car. All I did was oil changes and gas and go for 12 years and had few problems with it until it died. The car looks fast and is fast enough to pass and get plenty of tickets but will not win any races so don't try. It has been a good car for the most part. The timing belt wore out. Now they tell me it's gonna cost at least $4400 to fix it.




Excellent car, even after all

The Tiburon is an extremely attractive, sporty, and reliable car. I've had to make no major repairs on it at all (still on ORIGINAL clutch) and I'm at roughly 165,000 miles. It is fun to drive and turns heads! My only wish is that it had a bit more power. It looks much faster than it really is.

Bought used in 01 with 8k miles. I have been HARD on this car (2.5 miles of dirt road daily, curvy roads, extremely fast, hit a dear at 65 mph, into ditches, over curbs) and it has held up tremendiously. Has 125K miles now. Have had to do very few repairs. Other than brakes, oil changes and tire rotation/replacement, I have only changed the spark plugs and wires twice, coil once, radiator once, belt once, battery once, wheel bearing once. This car is very reliable, it has never left me stranded anywhere, and mechanicly seems to be nearly indestructable. I couldn't be happier with my car. Even through I have drove the hell out of this car, it still runs great and looks nice inside and out!
