Hyundai Tiburon Problems

Drive Train -- Verified

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.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

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.

Hyundai Tiburon Reviews

Bought my 2004 Tiburon new. It had a "Phantom" noise in the back for the first few years, but then it went away. The car has been great. The headlights suck on it. I tried better bulbs and cleaning the covers, but nothing helped. I moved to rural MN and felt like I was driving blind. Oh, the tires suck too. They are a sports car type of tire so don't try to drive in snow with them. I had to buy new tires when I moved to MN. Actually, this car really has no business being in MN. LOL. Mine eats tires and lightbulbs. Not sure why. I'm getting HID bulbs put in this week. It is fun to drive. Slow...like really slow...like I have to turn off my A/C to pass someone. I get a lot of compliments because it's so sharp looking.

Bought a 2003 tiburo with 89K miles for $5k. Car runs good, but have had driver side door window motor failure. Now have transmission failure - the cluch will not disengage, and some shaft is broke in transmission. Steering has a mild but weird tendency to want to continue turning in direction of last turn when I come to a stop. So I cat give that a top score. The AC smelled burnt when fast fan position used and swich got hot- changed cabin air filter and the problem gone, but seems like design issue. Exhaus emmission system required vapor system valves replacement and hose tightening due to error code and pressure build up in gas tank- cheap fix but used my time. All in all a fun car but a "cheap ?" car requiring lots of attention. top marks for stuff that hasn't broke yet.

ok i love my tibby its a 2000 manual ..but i think the computer is bad and really have no clue what to do..ive replaced the alternator batter fuel pump filters etc...it will run for a bit and jsut shut off...no warning nothing you just feel it loose power and bam...the lights inside come on check engine batter etc i can get it to start after it sits for about 30 minutes..its not running hot or overheating or such...sso idk..
im thinking the computer got fried when my cousin was messing with some of the old amp wires that were in it before i bought it ive had it for about three years now...was wondering if any one has any suggestions

i have a 2003 hyundai tibron and i can honestly say i love my car but seriously i need some help for my most recent issue i am going threw with it. so my starter i had to get a new one but when it had it fixed and drove away from the shop i went home got outta my car and took out the key and had the issue of about three seconds after the car was turned off it didnt matter whether key was still in ignition or not because after 3sec my dinger sound, my dash lights and parking lights and right turning signal were all freakin out and wouldnt shut off totally wierd so i took the battery terminal off and then about and hour later i reconnected it and COMPLETE OPPOSITE all of the stuff i couldnt shut off now doesnt work at all and addition to it i have no tail lights or windows but i do have brake lights and headlights but not parking light or dash or anything else i said was wrong in begining. i checked my fuses but there all good except the airbag light that i have always had issue with even had dealer fix it but week later still went back to a blown fuse and light back on but never did affect anything. the one thing i had noticed was on my fuse box the tail light fuse was the only one that didnt have any power once so ever running to it. someone please help me out i am clueless and seriously tired of tryin to guess being i dont even have a owners manual which is even more of a problem so anything can only help if not thanks for tryin

I love my car just having problems with either the overdrive or the transmission. 2000 Needs a paint job, great sound but also needs an alignment. going to see about that and my trans. fluid fliter changed also. I haveonlt had it a few months but if something does not give I will give it up. But I really do love this car.
