2004 Hyundai Tiburon 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
This is a great car. Not perfect, but fun to drive and own. Im going to post this to help other fellow Hyundai Tiburon owners.. The clutches fail due to a simple part and the fix is simple provided your clut ALL Tiburons 2003 and on both 2.0L I4 and 2.7L V6 5 and 6spd manual models have a clutch slave delay valve. This valve, with a tiny spring, causes your clutch to SLIP. REMOVE IT. Ive done this mod myself.. just need a few tools, brake fluid, and ability to spin a wrench. There are posts online for additional details. This mod will save you HUGE money and restore proper clutch feel and reliability. Provided your clutch isnt already ruined. :( When you replace, remove the valve!
Favorite Features
Peppy 2.0 Engine, smooth clutch (with clutch slave delay valve removed) nice 5 speed transmission, beautiful looks, nice interior design, averages over 30 MPG, comes with many standard features (cruise, tilt, pw/pl/heated mirrors and rear wiper), nice handling, reliability and well designed engine.
Suggested Improvements
More soft touch materials in interior, Remove idiotic clutch delay valve in clutch slave cylinder. Hyundai, slowing clutch engagement with a $8 delay valve ruins clutches, and creates warranty claims and bad juju. Not smart in my honest opinion. Paint could be better.
