Just picked up an 05 gs and while I miss the v6 it still has get up and go. I had Hyundai do the work on the transmission rebuilt. I replaced flywheel and had transmission rebuilt. In the United States, the Tiburon was first offered in 1997 with base models using the Elantra's 1. It's a more attractive look, with a single large dark-meshed center opening in the grille flanked by fog lamp openings. Both had standard four-wheel disc brakes.
Hyundai launched a revised Tiburon in 2002 for the 2003 model year, giving it new styling, larger dimensions, and an optional. This is my second Hyundai, my first was the 1995 Elantra. I have had my Tiburon Tuscani for about 3-4 months. For the most part, I absolutely love the car. Crank up the volume and you're enveloped in sound. Compelling pricing makes the Tiburon an attractive proposition. They don't seem to be able to stay inflated.
I might as well be driving with out a clutch. It's precise, with just enough feedback for fast driving. Compelling pricing makes the Tiburon an attractive proposition. The quality of its products has improved tremendously in the past few years, according to the respected quality gurus at J. Each time I was able to get out of it by letting the officer test drive the car in the parking lot. The rear bumper is also reformed receiving larger taillights.
Only the 6-speed and automatic transmissions were available. The gear-knob was of a unique design and had a chrome finish. In the metal, the car is sleek and compact. Upon arrival the service manager escorted me into the repair area where I saw my car in pieces and I was shown the clutch and flywheel. I, however, am 39 years old, have had 11 new cars since I began driving and all of them were manual transmissions.
I have the extended warranty and I had never encountered a clutch that failed so early on. If I had not stated another garage they would have hustled me and I'm sure they have hustled others. At this time I am living in southern California so I can safely sat that at least 2500 of those miles were accumulated on the interstate moving the car from Ohio. The clutch failed completely and the dealer stated that it was not their responsibility because the vehicle was out of warranty. This clutch was less than 18 months old and I have driven manual for years prior to this car. The six-speed gearbox was also standard on the V6 model. This car is not safe to drive but I have to for work.
After less than 25K miles my clutch started acting up by not disengaging the engine when pressing the clutch down. However, we could compensate pretty easily using the throttle, brakes, and steering wheel, and get the rear end to come around and help the car turn in for the tight corners. The existence of the name is most likely to achieve greater sales where the Hyundai name has cloying associations with more budget products. I was amazed that this could be the case with so few miles on it, however. This allowed for a greater airflow to the air filter, gaining a minimal increase of bhp.
Unless otherwise indicated, specifications refer to test vehicle. Put a timing belt on at 60K per Hyundai recommendation and new water pump at same time. The dashboard sweeps across the width of the cabin with just a smallish instrument pod and two heater vents to break up its shape. These guys seemed like a pack of wolves in their approach which had obviously been done to other Tiburon owners. By 16,000 miles even I who am not mechanical could figure out that the clutch was failing. New front and rear lamps, a new grille, new mirrors and foglights, and a flashy horizontal body-length indent, and three gills behind the front wheels make the Tiburon look more expensive than it is. This should have never failed in the first place and then it certainly should have been covered by the warranty.
It was known as the Hyundai Coupe in some European and Indonesian markets. Anti-lock brakes were made standard on all 2006 model Tiburons. Car lot agreed to put new clutch in. Its appearance was a revival of , popular during the 1960s and 1970s. But geez if this isnt the sexiest looking car ive ever seen. It looks sporty and is backed by Hyundai's aggressive warranty.
