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


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.


Best Features

Looks nice on the outside


Worst Features

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

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


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.


Best Features

definetly the sunroof


Worst Features

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.

Review

After 8 years the stick is still a fun drive. Typical of exposed braking systems is noise and caliper rattle at times. The headlamp filament is probably too wide for the vibration it receives and is prone to break about every 6 months-- I don't see this as an electrical problem with the headlamps. The brakes are very substantial for the car's weight and braking on slippery roads requires some concentration to maintain control. This was surely designed to be a fun, economical sports car. With TLC and a little help from the warranty, it is exactly that.


Best Features

Body styling.


Worst Features

None for the price.
