I had the 2003 gt v6 when I was in the army and it got repo'd with 2 payments left because they changed my allotment at the bank and NOBODY notified me. Just picked up an 05 gs and while I miss the v6 it still has get up and go. But geez if this isnt the sexiest looking car ive ever seen. Some tibbys have issues but treat her right and theres nothing like driving one.

2nd One & I'm in love

by from Peoria, IL on October 7, 2013

Drives like a sports car so if that's what you want this would be the kind. A lot of get up & go! Sleek, sporty, & very cool to drive.

The 2005 Hyudai Tiburon was not one of our best drives. This ride was very bumpy not comfortable at all. We tested the Tiburon for many Performance aspects and it sadly didn't perform like we had hoped. The Interior is cheaply made and it shows. These can be found for less then $3,000 now (and for good reason) and for that little money it not all bad. Now we get to the major problem. Reliability we had a testing limit of a single week in this time it manged to break down twice. The second time was terminal with a lost cylinder.

Bought the SE V6 used with 60K miles on it and have put 3K on it. The car drives, handles and feels like new. Put a timing belt on at 60K per Hyundai recommendation and new water pump at same time. That's all....car is awesome for the money; it's a shame that Hyundai doesn't make it anymore. They should bring it back with a little stronger V6 but that's all. Quality throughout and a very reliable commuter. Would buy another new if they were still available. Get one while you can.

I had a 2003 tiburon and it had some problems with the AC electronics, but unlike that car this one has a amazing AC and the looks are second to none. The interior is a bit dull, but the performace is very nice especially since the performace parts are pretty impressive. I have a supercharger among other things. All and all I absolutely love my car.

Before I write anything on my car, I wanna state the ratings i gave were based on what i think of the car, in comparison to all the other cars that you can find for what I paid. I have had my Tiburon Tuscani for about 3-4 months. I have driven it almost 16,000 miles in that time. I did have to replace the alternator, mainly because the person that owned it before me put a lot of extra electrical things in it. For the most part, I absolutely love the car. I get complements on it all the time! People that dont know what kind of car it is ask me, and I tell them its a Hyundai. And they are in complete disbelief. It truly is a beautiful car. I highly recommend it if you want a cheap, reliable, sporty car.
