2000 Hyundai Tiburon from North America
A great car when its not in the shop
This car is pretty good when working properly. The problem is the repetitive visits to the dealer for what appears to be several design flaws.
The headlights constantly burn out; I am currently on my tenth one.
The alternator was replaced to stop this issue, yet was unsuccessful.
All of the marker lights in the front have been replaced at least once. I have stopped replacing bulbs, as it seems to be a pointless endeavor.
The horn has burned out and been replaced.
I am on my third wheel bearing and the fourth and final one to complete the set is going fast.
I have had intermittent problems with the radio. The radio operates poorly or not at all in temperatures below 32f and will only work when the cab has warmed up enough to be sat in without a jacket.
I have intermittent problems with the power mirrors, though in all fairness it seems to have gone away for the moment.
The passenger door had to be taken apart because the the window stops fell out and the passenger could not close the door with the window all the way up.
The car is fun to drive when running correctly.
You will want to get the extended warranty for this car-your going to need it.
Hyundai will be nice to talk to, but will be unable to do much else to fix your car permanently. Expect to get a bunch of excuses as to why your car is in the shop again, but no help to solve the problem.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
