Very good for the money

2004 Hyundai Tiburon 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Everyone who has had a complaint seems to have the manual tranny. While admittedly the automatic is not super powerful, it is a 2.0L 4cyl so what did you expect...?
Brake pads changed at 125,000km and 200,000. Rortors replaced at 200,000 (could have machined, but chose to replace.

Small things like wiper motor and washer fluid pump went, but $30 on eBay and some elbow grease fixed it up well.

At 220,000kms now and I need some suspension work, but even with not so frequent oil changes (every 9,000 or so kms) the thing is a beauty.

Original battery just went at 220,000. Fantastic vehicle for the money I paid for it. Way hotter than the Genesis.

Best Features

Front leg room (I am 6'2") is a big plus. Hatchback makes it capable of transporting almost anything. Most of all, looks hot! I was told that designers from Porsche were consulted in the redesign of the chassis for the 2004 model...

Worst Features

for a $17,000 car, it is pretty good.
