2005 Hyundai Tiburon Problems

Poor Shift Quailty of Automatic Transmission

Prior to replacing the automatic transmission fluid (to improve shift quality), make sure that the transmission fluid level is correct. Also, make sure the computer that controls the transmission has the most up-to-date adaptive programming information. When servicing these transmissions be sure to use fluid approved by Hyundai.

Improved Alternator Available

If the alternator fails, it should be replaced with an improved design which is better able to replenish electrical power to the battery. The new alternator requires a different diameter drive belt.

2005 Hyundai Tiburon Recalls

Steering Gear May Have Internal Cracks

The steering gearbox assembly's left and right inner ball joint assemblies may contain internal cracks in the material. This may allow the inner ball joint to break away, separating the tie rod from the steering gearbox. This would prevent steering control to the wheel with the separated tie rod, which could cause a crash. Dealers will replace the steering gearbox assemblies free of charge. All owners were notified by telephone on April 8, 2005, and instructed not to drive their vehicles. Hyundai arranged for the pickup and return of the vehicles. The Hyundai recall number is 069.

2005 Hyundai Tiburon Reviews

based on 1 customer reviews
I bought the car brand new in 2005, have over 100,000 miles on the car now. Love the car and how it handles. No problems with engine, transmission, or brakes. Paint came off gas cap and spoiler. Had O2 sensor replaced last month for smog check. Sensor won't reset and car cant be smogged until it does. No one can figure out why.
