Pros: Overall body style
Cons: Clutch Problem
Advice: The clutch problem seems to be fixed in the 2004-2006 models.I bought this car with lots of promise of being the first owner and knowing what the history of the car was. When the clutch went out after 20,000 miles, Hyundai blamed me. I have owned 5 other cars and none of the clutches went out on me. I know how to drive stick. I later found that it is a very consistant problem with the '03. I also found out that Hyundai knowingly sold me this car with a clutch problem that they realized and fixed on the newer models. Be cautious!
Pros: Interior Styling
Cons: Back seat room
Advice: Go all the way and get the SEGrate looks, With all the power you need. Its worth it going all the way and getting the SE with the 6 speed manual. You wont be sorry!!!
Pros: The look of this car. It really turns heads. Dual exhast pipes and the louvers on the sides of the door.
Cons: The power could be pumped up a few notches.
Advice: buy it. You won't be sorryThis car really impressed me. I had been looking for a two door coupe with some style. With the death of the toyota celica and the price of the newly redesigned eclipse, I really didn't know what car to buy. Then I stopped by a hyundai dealership and instatly fell in love with the tiburon. Its got a really cool look and good performance. I only test drove and bought a four cylinder I don't know about the six. It is great on gas and very comfortable to drive. Its got plenty of cargo space. It is a fun, good looking car that is easy to handle and drive. Thank you Hyundai for putting out such agood product.
Cons: No power drivers seat
Advice: Buy one!I love this automobile. I love it's looks, performance, and quality.This is my toy that I really love!!
Pros: interior design
Cons: paint seems to chip, mostly around the door handles
Advice: Make sure it's manualI have the 5 spd v6 I was looking for something along the lines of an eclipse, celica, etc. I saw the Tib and thought what the hell is that.. A little suspicious when i learned it was a hyundai I test drove it anyway. After going around the block i was in love. The car handles great and mine had an aftermarket exhaust that made it even sound great. Acceleration is awesome, my previous car was a 97 nissan 200sx... so you can imagine the difference. The sound system is awesome for a stk car. i have owned my tiburon for a little under a month now and have had no problems yet. The interior is very nice and the lighting inside is attractive.
Pros: Looks, Motor, Driver comfort!
Cons: Back Seat
Advice: Remember its a sport compact not much for back seat! But you'll get over that fast!Great, beautiful car! Love it inside out! Fast - more torque than horse. Takes off fast. V6 Se 6 speed is designed for easy modifications, but is great factory! High spoiler and better front bumper than previous years. Much sportier than 2004 model. Remember this is a sport-compact so not much of a backseat. But like most sport cars (supra, 300Z, Camaro) you get over the lack of room back there. Very roomy up front. Im a big 300lbs guy, but lots of room in drivers seat, A+++ in my book!
