2003 Hyundai Tiburon 4 cylinder from North America
Tiburons look nice and have a cool sporty look, but are not worth the time, hassle, and money
I have had my Tiburon for a little over two years now, and it has been nothing but a problem! So far I've dumped money into it every couple of months.
I am very good at driving a manual, and the clutch has gone out twice already. There have been many mechanical errors.
I've had problems with the power windows not working, and there have been electrical problems.
One of the knobs to adjust the heat stopped working, and cost over $200 to fix.
Randomly it just shuts down on me and won't turn back on. Also, I will drive it and it will begin acting like it's out of gas, and begin chugging so I will have to pull over. This even happens on the highway.
The O2 sensor went out, and I had to have that replaced just a couple weeks ago.
Since I've had the car, there have been two recalls, which of course I didn't have to pay for, but had to take time to get fixed. Also, there have been some leaks.
I have always kept up with oil changes and routine maintenance!
I will NEVER buy or recommend a Hyundai car to anyone. They are very unreliable! This is the worst car I have ever owned.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
