Great car for the money.

by Rhino from Montgomery, AL on Thu Feb 22 2007

I own the Tiburon FX and I love it. I have had to do repairs on it but nothing major, just things like belts, plugs and wires, ignition coil and the EGR valve. Mine does have 107,000 miles on after all but it still runs great. I would reccomend this car to anyone.

First year Tiburon

by bizquithead from Michigan on Fri Apr 15 2011

This is a fun little car. It handles good, gets great gas mileage. The interior styling is very nice- very durable. The exterior is nice as well- modern & sleek. The power is not as impressive. The design is very well done under the hood. I was able to change the oil very easily myself. Changing out the alternator was a different story. Overall it's a very neat car.

Great car

Great car. Bought it used in 2002 and it has run like a dream since then. Minor problems have come up to be fixed and thats it.

Our Take on the 1997 Hyundai Tiburon

Hyundai Motors' 1997 Tiburon is a striking example of an automotive dream come true.

Originally introduced in 1993 as the Hyundai HCD-II concept car, the Tiburon is one of those futuristic sport coupes that made it into production.

Featuring bold design and spirited performance, the new front-drive coupe comes in standard and upgraded FX form, with both models enhanced by aerodynamic styling and advanced technology.

"Customers are calling it The Shark," said Jim Webb, Butler Hyundai's general sales manager. "It's got that pointed nose and eyes on the side."

The Tiburon is a prime example of the longer wheelbase, shorter front/rear overhang school of design. Overall length is but 170.9 inches. The... Read More
