Review of the 2004 Hyundai Tiburon

  • With clean styling, optional V6 power and a generous warranty, the Tiburon would seem to have no faults, but a few too many pounds and a less-than-athletic suspension keep it from attaining class-leading sport coupe status.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Sharp styling, available V6 power, generous standard equipment list, reasonable price, great warranty.

  • Cons

    Considerable weight takes it toll on performance, thirsty at the pumps in V6 form.

  • What's New for 2004

    The Tiburon's base 2.0-liter inline four has been fitted with continuously variable valve timing. As a result, horsepower creeps up…

Vehicle: 2004 Hyundai Tiburon GT V6 2dr Coupe (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

I bought my 04 GT in Sept of 06 with 30,000 miles. I just traded it last month at just under 200,000 miles. (187k) I've LOVED this car since the day I bought it! I was 19 when I bought it, so this poor car had more than it's fair share of abuse, and the Tiburon responded very well under the pressure. I did very few repairs, especially for such high mileage! None of the repairs were big ticket items, such as engine or transmission issues. More of the pesky nature, like struts, tires, and brakes. Overall I LOVED this car, and was very tempted to buy another, but set my sights on the Genesis Coupe! Hyundai has exceeded my expectations, and I am now a loyal Hyundai owner.




I love my car

Vehicle: 2004 Hyundai Tiburon GT V6 2dr Coupe (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

I bought my car in 2004 new and got many compliments on it...it is currently 8 years old, only has 49,000 miles and still drives and looks like new. Only problem I have had is buying a new battery and changing out the front tires. I would buy this car again, except my next car is going to be a luxury car instead of a sports car.

Vehicle: 2004 Hyundai Tiburon GT V6 2dr Coupe (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

Bought my Tiburon GT new in 2004. Day two of purchase my drivers window motor gave out. Warranty coverage the cost. I also had a fuel return hose rupture and fuel was spraying everywhere because Hyundai cheap hoses. Luckily nothing caught on fire and Ive read this is a common issues. The engine is very very sensitive to mods and will cause bad MAF and 02 readings. I loved the car because it was my first new car ever but i had way too many problems. I sold it at 55k miles only because of electrical and engine problems. You must use OEM oil filters or the internal HLA's will click. The 2.7L v6 is Hyundai's worst engine. Their new engines are much better since they are not mitsubishi built
