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.

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.

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 Tiburon GT is a great vehicle. This is my second Hyundai, my first was the 1995 Elantra. The Tiburon has a sporty look that definitely turns heads. The gas milage is outstanding, I recently took a road trip and averaged about 33 mpg. The get up and go from the six cylinder is awsome. Some things to watch out for - there are some blind spots be very careful switching lanes and I do miss having a back seat that can actually be used, however, cargo space is not a problem - I can do a major grocery shopping and not have to worry about space. Hyundai has a winner!

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.

Bought this car in November of 07. 1 radiator hose, 100k 2 batteries 1 set of front brake pads 100k 1 set of rear brake pads 70k 1 seat belt latch 5k 2 sets of tires ~40k each 1 set of plug wires 75k 1 set of spark plugs 75k 1 timing belt 80k 1 fuel cap cover 80k 1 steering wheel 55k Rims 80k lower control arm bushings 100k 1 throttle position sensor 10k The spoiler is faded but thats not unusual for a black car in Arizona. The drivers seat cover is worn from where I get in. Most of the parts except for the lower control arm bushings are regular maintainance items... I hit a pot hole and bent a rim. I'm guessing that I damaged a lower control arm bushing when that happened. It's been a good car that gets pretty good gas milage and is fun to drive. It's a little noisey on the open road but I didn't buy a sports car for comfort. I'd buy another one... just not black. I plan on driving it for about another year or until I reach 150k miles
