Have replaced the brakes, Sunroof no longer works, lock motor on driver side door went out, radiator hose started leaking at the thermostat housing, replaced the hose clamp and fixed it, a few days ago the radiator cracked in a spot that I still can't explain why. The multi-link rear system utilizes gas-filled hydraulic shocks and another stabilizer bar to precisely tune the chassis. I eventually had it fixed by adjusting the clutch. When I sit in the back, I find myself having to put my legs up on all seats to be comfortable. The total number of vehicles being recalled is now 1,712,336. There are more positive changes for 2006. I came out with minor injuries.
I found myself getting pain in my back when I drove pretty far. I vowed to keep up with the oil changes on schedule!! In the affected vehicles, the stop lamp switch may malfunction. I did feel the interior quiet cheap. Compelling pricing makes the Tiburon an attractive proposition. That was one of the things I hated about this car. Jersey with one, just met a guy a few weeks ago who parked his next to mine while at a grocery store. I am 5'11 and I fit pretty well but I could feel my hair slightly touch the ceiling.
Hyundai freshened the front-end styling for 2005. Replaced that, a week later another, replaced it, a week later another. The brakes was complicated for this car took it to two places they couldnt fix the brakes, and was costly. One thing I noticed were that the airbags did not deploy. I recently got into a 2 impact wreck that destroyed my car. Remedy Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the stop lamp switch, free of charge.
At 160,000 miles the car required a totally new engine. Alas, a few too many pounds, ho-hum engine outputs and a less-than-athletic suspension keep it a few paces off the leading budget sport coupes. Dynamic exterior styling When it comes to commanding respect in the sport-coupe segment, the 2006 Tiburon has all the qualifications it needs. Hyundai has emerged as a low-cost producer of attractive cars with performance and panache. The headlights do not light up the road pretty good. Everything is laid out in a straightforward fashion free of gimmickry.
Remedy Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the stop lamp switch, free of charge. At first glance, it's evident that the interior designers wanted to impart a high-quality look and feel to the cabin. It begins with easy entry and exit through wide door openings, and front seats with large side bolsters offering excellent lateral support for enthusiastic driving. Originally, in April 2013, Hyundai recalled 1,059,824 model year 2007-2009 Accent and Tucson, model year 2007-2010 Elantra, model year 2007-2011 Santa Fe, model year 2008-2009 Veracruz, model year 2010-2011 Genesis Coupe, and model year 2011 Sonata vehicles. Fiddle with the climate control knobs, and the silky fluidity with which they move would do a Honda proud. The brakes are not very well done.
For the price I financed, the vehicle depreciated in value rather quickly. I could carry my soccer bag, school backpack, and my instruments pretty well in it. Driving Impressions The Tiburon's shapely lines don't quite translate to the sporty driving experience one might expect. For 2006 every Tiburon-regardless of trim level-gets the same high level of safety features. Its V6 is confident but not eager, its steering is a bit slow and numb, and it's heavy for a sport coupe.
I've had it now about a week and so far I love pretty much everything about it, whoever had it before me put after market exhaust on it so it sounds like a completely different car. When the Tiburon is driven hard, it lacks the athleticism of its lighter weight competitors. In terms of passive safety, the Tiburon has strong unibody construction, along with front and rear crumple zones, body-side reinforcements, and five-mph energy-absorbing bumpers. The front suspension uses fade-resistant gas-filled hydraulic struts and a stabilizer bar to control body roll. In the affected vehicles, the stop lamp switch may malfunction. Lastly, I could say this car holds up pretty well during wrecks.
A malfunctioning stop lamp switch may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause an inability to deactivate the cruise control by depressing the brake pedal. Enjoyable performance, attractive pricing, and good build quality make the Hyundai Tiburon a compelling choice among sport coupes. Advanced independent suspension For excellent dynamic performance as well as efficient packaging, the Tiburon features MacPherson strut front and multi-link independent rear suspension. Bolstered sport seats help keep occupants in place during enthusiastic cornering, and the large speedometer and tachometer are easy to read at a glance. Standard accident-avoidance technologies begin with precise power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering, combined with MacPherson strut front suspension and a multi-link rear suspension for responsive handling. This may lead to unintentional movement of the car which may increase the risk of a crash.
