2001 Hyundai Tiburon FX 2.0


A very rattling car!


My car has a tapping noise (like a diesel noise: clack clack clack) at cold start, but it disappears after 1-2 minutes: anyone experienced the same?

Rattles and gurgling noise at cold start around the dash.

Rattle over bumps at the rear: partially solved by rotating the rear hatch bump stopper.

A noise over rough roads that disappears when pressing the brake pedal.

General Comments:

The Hyundai Tiburon is a beautiful car.

But it is also a rattling car.

It handles well, but should be more powerful.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Try using full synthetic oil for the engine so it will start very well even on a cold morning.
