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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Trunk space. Manual transmission. Looks good.


Suggested Improvements

Slide out cup-holder gets stuck easily. Window mechanisms are not good. Passenger door lock is kinda weird sometimes, but I don't usually have a passenger.

Review

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


Favorite Features

Looks nice on the outside


Suggested Improvements

If you enjoy being not having money due to frequent repairs and insulted by indifferent customer relations, Hyundai is so for you.

Review

I've had this car since 2006 and have put 24,000 on it so far. I've replaced the belts and front brake pads; done my own oil changes and had the atf replaced. The automatic tranny has never felt right, it shifts weird but has never broke down. The power is decent and the handling is ok. The brakes are fantastic but to sensitive at times. I locked the left front wheel only in a sudden stop and the car had handling issues after that. Its noisy even with the windows rolled but the sunroof is a great feature. The fuel regulator leaked so I replaced it but the new one started leaking after a year. The stereo is possessed. Cant skip forward on a cd just back, changes from radio to cd on its own.


Favorite Features

definetly the sunroof


Suggested Improvements

I went to the dealership to get belts, it uses three belts and the dealership only had two of the three! An excorsist for the radio! The automatic tranny just feels like its going to fall apart even if there is nothing wrong with it.
