Review of the 2005 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

    Solid V6 power, predictable driving dynamics, clean interior styling, generous standard equipment list, reasonable price, great warranty.

  • Cons

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

Hyunday tibby gs manual

Vehicle: 2005 Hyundai Tiburon GS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

Love it! bought this car today and its my first manual car. I've only driven stick 3 times in my life and I already got the hang of it. Shifting is easy and fun to do, it has a great kick to it even though its only a 4v. I cant say anything bad about it other then the fact that theres almost no room in the backseat but hey, its a 2 dr. I recommend this car to anyone with a desire to drive a sporty looking, fun coupe.

Vehicle: 2005 Hyundai Tiburon GT 2dr Hatchback (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

own a 05 Hyundai Tiburon GT Ultimate Sports Package with sunroof and Infinity Sound system. When bought, had 13000 miles, now 40,000 love the pick-up and the mild roar through the muffler. looks are stunning, everyone who see my car for the first time love it! comfort for the driver and passenger is good, not for the people sitting in the back since not enough space for big and tall people. I'd call it a two-seater. Ample trunk space, better if back seats are put down. still suspension makes you feel all the potholes only problem I've had so far is the car pulling towards the right because of alignment issues. Also, when I jumped my car battery last winter, the sound system got damaged.

Vehicle: 2005 Hyundai Tiburon GS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

Fun to drive, even with a 2.0 4 cylinder it has quite a bit of power compared to some other 4 cylinders. gets going quick, and looks great. when im stopped at a red light i can see people driving by in mustangs and camaros looking at it. a little hard on pot holes, but on smooth road its like a dream.
