2003 Hyundai Tiburon from North America
This car would be nice if it would stay in one piece!
A week after buying the car, we took it back for the passenger side window leaking, and not sealing properly.
Not long after that, the passenger side window motor quit working, had to be replaced.
Soon after that, the passenger side door-locking mechanism broke, and had to be replaced.
THEN, the rear washer pump quit working, and had to be ordered and replaced.
THEN, the fuel door cover, for unknown reasons, decided to fade out. Had to have a new one ordered, painted, and replaced.
THEN, the DRIVERS side door lock broke, and had to be replaced.
Overall, I like the "auto-stick" feature, and the gauges. I like some parts of the interior : IE: the seats, and dash. And hate other parts, IE: the cup holders and center console.
In addition to the problems had with the car. Hyundai seems to care less, and refused to look into the problem deeper. Only telling me "we will continue to fix the car as long as it is under warranty" (Aren't they legally OBLIGATED??)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I am very thankful for this site. I was literally about to walk out the door to go buy a new 2006 Tiburon when I came across this site. When I saw all the reviews where the reviewer said they had lots of problems and Hyundai refused to honor their warranty, I decided I'd better stick with American made cars. I bought a 2006 Ford and am VERY glad I stayed away from Hyundai!! Thanks to all you guys who have shared your experiences.
