bought used from dealer, was taken, my son wanted the car bad, i think i bought the worst car they had on the lot as far as reliability,this car has been in the shop more than he has driven it, severe electrical problems, engine replacement..and wire harness shot, cannot find one used, new is 1200.00, this car is still sitting, have had only since april this year, i was robbed and very dissatisfied with the dealership, thinking of just letting them repo the car, only place it should be parked is the salvage yard, what a bad move on my part to buy this junk.

Great car,runs good as long as you keep up with the maintenance. I have 153,000 miles on it. The only problem is the headlights. Just don't seem to be bright enough like in the 1999 model I had. If that's the least of my troubles I should be happy. Also have an 03 sonata and a new 2012 model. Love this company,love their cars.

My 2001 Tiburon currently has 230k miles on it. I've been careful about completing regular maintenance. The struts were replaced at 150k miles along with the original break pads. Wheel bearing on the front left was replaced at about 200k and the front right at 230k (today, in fact).

When the car was still under warranty, an electrical system problem caused the low and high beam bulbs to burn out. I was replacing each bulb every 3-6 months. On the worst night, both low beams went out. The dealer replaced the alternator and several other parts. This appeared to fix the problem.

Overall, it's been an excellent car: reliable with good gas mileage (~30-35 mpg with the standard transmission).
