2000 Hyundai Tiburon Hatchback 2dr Hatchback


Review

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

Review

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


Suggested Improvements

buy a honda or toyota

Review

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.


Favorite Features

One of a kind style. good bang for your buck. Smooth ride over most roads.


Suggested Improvements

The seat belt always jammed when I pulled it out. It was made too thin and would fold in half every time I pulled it out causing it to jam. This happens on both sides. Then I have to use one hand to guide the belt out and the other hand to pull it out. That's the biggest pain of this car. I hated that but I got used to it. The drink holder is the second biggest pain of this car. It is right in front of the stereo and only holds two small drinks. If your drink has only a little bit in it the holder will eject your drink out of the holder.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Design, handling, reliability

Performance increases
