2008 Hyundai Tiburon GT Limited 2dr Hatchback (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought the 08 Tiburon GT Limited with 39,600 miles on it. Haven't been driving it for too long but i am loving it, it's definitely way better than the 99 Saturn SL i had before i got my Tiburon. All the reviews i read say it's a pile of junk, clutch goes out, weak engine, etc. I can agree that the engine isn't as powerful for a V6, however i didn't buy this car for racing, i bought it for everyday commuting that has a bit more power than the average car. I can see myself putting some more horses under the hood in the near future. I like the red leather seats, it adds a little more flare to the cars already good looks. Only issues i have is that the previous owner put quite a few scratches on it as well as the American Racing alloy wheels they added to, the sunglasses holder falls down a lot, and the amount space to see next to you and behind you are minimal...but i am used to it now, and like i said before the engine could use some more power. If you're looking for something that's faster than buy another car, don't complain about something you should've done some research on.

2008 Hyundai Tiburon GS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Bought a 2008 in January 2014 for $4000. It has over 200,00km. Was looking for second car to drive around instead of my thirsty SUV all the time.
I test drove a whole bunch of small cars and at the end it came down to a 2006 Mazda3 and the Tiburon. It all came down to looks and price. Love the Ferrari look and it was $1500 cheaper than the Mazda. Good all around car and handles and brakes better than the Mazda. Love it!

2008 Hyundai Tiburon GT 2dr Hatchback (2.7L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Hyundai built a cheap car and used cheap parts. I can see the South Koreans that built this thing laughing seeing Americans driving it down the road. Numerous clutch problems, paint fading, four different tries at a e-brake and it's the noisiest car I've ever driven. Stay away whatever you do. This thing is a death-trap. I won't sell it because I don't want to have it on my mind that someone is out there driving that POS.


Best Features

Nothing


Worst Features

scrap the car and start over. It's a junker and the Koreans should be ashamed of making it. Hell, Dodge is a better car than this!
