Review of the 2001 Hyundai Tiburon

  • It may not appeal to everybody, but the Tiburon is a decent enough ride that looks like nothing else on the road.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Aggressive styling, comfortable interior, zippy engine, good handling.

  • Cons

    Aggressive styling, lots of squeaks and rattles from rear hatch, plenty of noise, vibration and harshness intruding upon cabin.

  • What's New for 2001

    Following last year's freshening, the Tiburon sees only minor trim changes for 2001, such as redesigned wheels and the addition of a rear spoiler as standard equipment.

Vehicle: 2001 Hyundai Tiburon 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

I bought my Tib brand new and yes the radio went within three months and yes the front wheel barrings keep going(left 2x right 3x), it goes through headlights like no tomorrow, has had 3 alts and those tires phew, can they make some decent tires for this car? And right now my timing belt and water pump just blew at 135,000 (replaced at 90,000). I still love this car. My husband wants me to get rid of it but its perfect. Handles great, good on gas, zip in and out of traffic, I have no trouble in ice and snow or rain. I would buy this car all over again. When the time comes to get another vehcile I will buy another Hyundai.

No major problems

Vehicle: 2001 Hyundai Tiburon 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Overall have had a good experience with this vehicle. Only owner. Have had to fix both windows ($300-400 each) and the driver's side is acting up again. Tape deck went bad within a few months, replaced under warranty. ~110,000miles and have changed oil and spark plugs, no issues with engine or other components. Have been in a few (not too major) accidents and was impressed by the safety of such a small car. Handles great in good conditions. So light that drives horrible in snow, not that good on very wet surfaces, and only OK on dirt/gravel. Not enough weight on tires to keep enough friction. Backseat is hard to fit anyone over ~5'5".Trunk is surprisingly roomy.

If I had eschewed the last three repairs (at least $6,000 ago), I could have afforded a more reliable used car by now.
