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.
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
Only problem has been a constant window motor needing replacing on the driver side.Lighting is not as good as my 99 was. Would have rather had the projector lamps that had.Road noise is noticeable but to be expected in a harder suspension as this has.Cornering is great.Overall a good car for the money.Gets good mileage with the proven 2.0 4 cyl. 30+
After owning for over 7 years, I wish I had bought another one then. The car has had very few problems and I still am getting 26mpg on the highway. I still enjoy driving my Tiburon as much today as I did when I bought it.
many problems, Fly wheel, BCM, Airconditioning,
just learning about my new car
