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


Review

My dad bought a 2001 Tiburon for me in 2003 I thought it was so cute and there arnt that many on the road. It gave me a little trouble but only because the person who had it befor me didnt take good care of it! I wouldnt trade it for the most expensive car in the world.

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


Review

I should have really thought twice when buying my Hyundai. From day one I had problems with the car, it even failed inspection! Im not downsizing Hyundai because they have come a long way, but they kind of failed with this car. The newer models are great but after this car I really wouldn't trust them.


Best Features

The sound system, the pick-up + speed..the 2.0L engine is so much better then my old 1.6L, and the handling isn't bad.


Worst Features

The style is a little off, wind-noise, the engine isn't crap but it isn't great either..gas mileage could be better. Hard to find parts as well. Warranty comes with a catch. It's either Im having bad luck with this car or it's really not that great.

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


Review

I am on my second Tiburon and I have become a true believer in the Hyundai product. I agree with the prior reviewer about the cluttered design in the radio/cup holder/ash tray area. Otherwise- I have logged in almost 100k miles on my Tibs and all I have ever had to do is replace the headlights (must be a flaw there). Otherwise, these cars are reliable, fun to drive and really unique looking.


Best Features

Good pick up, looks great, awesome standard features and I love the sun roof!


Worst Features

See description- need to move the cup holders

Review

I purchased the 2001 Cobalt Blue with leather. I had a few minor problems which were fixed quickly by the dealership. I love my Tibby! I've put a magnaflow muffler on it, took off the resinator, added a k&n air filter. I'm getting it tinted and eventually hope to improve the horsepower. You can't beat the warranty! I'm not worried about the low resale value because I plan on keeping mine for a long time. If you're thinking about buying one, give it a test drive. I don't think you'll be disappointed. Even with automatic it's a fun car to drive.


Best Features

Looks both inside and out. Sunroof, leather, stereo sound, auto key lock, power windows&locks, hatchback.


Worst Features

Better retracting seatbelts, more quality factory paint job.
