Did you get a great deal? Meet your fellow owners in our Owners Clubs. May edited March in Hyundai. I have a Tiburon and have had nothing but problems. AND this is all under 60, miles. This is the absolute worst car purchase I have ever made. I will never buy a Hyundai again! The service dealerships My favorite food poem have been to 3 now are inept and apparently noone knows how to fix these cars to make them last more than a month without something else breaking.
June Hi Dean, I too have a Tiburon. Last week I had my second clutch replaced at 27, miles. The first clutch was replaced at 8, miles. I have contacted the Hyundai, consumer affairs and made a formal complaint. The representative advised she was submitting a request for reimbursement for the bill.
I truly doubt that they will do anything. However, your Buyer Beware has really been an eye-opener, and of course, I am planning to get rid of my car asap.I No problems before this issue!
This all started when the only keyless remote I had broke and had to be replaced. I got 2 new remotes and had them programmed at the dealership. Several weeks later it wouldn't start again so I got a new battery and new connections. Then a couple weeks later The last time it happened I tried to start it almost every day for 6 weeks. Then all of the sudden it started But of coarse it's started fine so far Please help to help them find the problem?????
Jackie08 answered 6 years ago. Its probably the solenoid - I have a Tiburon and it started off like yours and it has gotten WORSE i have to work hard to get it to start now.
I brought it in and I have a bad Solenoid not too expensive to fix if you do it yourself but can be pricey if you have someone else do it. Wynand answered 5 years ago. I would recommend checking the engine crank censor. It sits right behind the radiator to the bottom of the engine, and if it's dirty the car would not start. It basically tells the ECU that the crank is not turning and because of that the engine won't start.
It should be replaced every km and should be done by the agents if they service it. But also check the starter motor. Could just be the solenoid that needs replacement.

Several weeks later When I press down the clutch to start it it starts sometimes I am getting a burning smell of sorts from my car, I have checked the oil and coolant and it seems fine, does anyone know of what else it could be?
It's not all the time but sometimes when I am drivin So I take it home and then a few days later same thing happens, it cranks and cranks but won't fire. So I let it sit for a day or two, but nothing.

Hyundai Tiburon Clutch Problems
A check valve and spring may be removed to remedy this dangerous situation. It causes the car to lurch of buck unexpectedly.
Possibly causing a rear end collision. Add Complaint. My clutch went out of my car after thirty five thousand miles. I understand that it is a wear item but I know how to drive stick and that is way to soon for it to go out. Now it has been another thirty five thousand miles and it is going out again. I talked to others who have had the same problem. There should be a recall on the Hyundai Tiburon.
When the clutch went out it was fine one day and grabbing at the floor the next it didn't get progressively bad. Other Tiburon owners were only getting twenty five thousand miles out of their clutches, so clearly this is a huge problem.
Clutch on Hyundai Tiburon has loads of problems. Car barely functions and I have been driving manual transmission my whole life. Full warranty will not cover because they claim it is "wear" related. It is not. Started at only 25, miles. I have a Hyundai tiboron and the clutch went after only 33, miles. Absolutely unheard of! I have heard about many other people saying how badly made the clutch parts are on the Hyundai's.
I have a Hyundai Tiburon V6 5-speed. The manual transmission broke at 49, miles - not just the clutch, but all the major components of the transmission. This is a very common problem with this model - there has already been a class action law suit involving this model, but earlier years - same car as the Hyundai will not fix the problem and has not recalled the vehicles.Hyundai Tiburon owners have reported a total of 1, problems for their cars built in the 12 model years listed in the chart below.
The chart shows the number of problems reported across all service years for each given model year of the Hyundai Tiburon. The Hyundai Tiburon cars have the most problems reported problems. The following chart shows the 22 most common problems for Hyundai Tiburon cars. The number one most common problem is related to the vehicle's power train problems.
The second most common problem is related to the vehicle's air bags problems.
It would not be fair to compare the Hyundai Tiburon of an older model year to newer model years since older vehicles have been in service longer and thus are expected to have more problems. In order to compare the reliability across Tiburon model years, we use the PPMY index which is defined as the problems reported per thousand vehicles per Year.
Hyundai Tiburon Electrical and Lighting Problems
A smaller PPMY index indicates greater reliability of the given model year cars. Another way to measure the reliability across the model years of the Hyundai Tiburon is to use the total number of problems reported during the vehicle's first year in service, as shown in the Table 4. Car Problems. Table 1. Total number of problems by model year for Hyundai Tiburon.

I like the exterior and interior design a lot. I am a nitpicker and whiner, but cannot think of a complaint! So you're thinking about making a car purchase, however you want something different out there. The Hyundai Tiburon is an awesome Sports car!
The look is great especially yellowthe ride is comfortable and it's got some juice to it too. The car simply stands out because of it's engaging and creative look. So far in my one year of having it, zero problems with 20, miles of driving since I got it! Did I mention, it's inexpensive? Ok so i have an 06 Tiburon SE V6 and it came with the 6 speed manual and as you have probably read these tiburons have terrible clutch problems.
Take that pesky spring out and this car is a dream to own. Great handling and decent performance plus i bought it used and it still has 1 year left on the powertrain warranty and 6 years left on roadside assistance! Overall a very good car for the money. I purchased my Tiburon in at 30, miles! As an 18 year old this was a dream. For the price I financed, the vehicle depreciated in value rather quickly.
I was "upside down" after only 2 years, the amount I owed was more than the car was worth. That's the thing about Hyundai though! This is amazing for the amount of mileage and wear I put on this vehicle In July atmiles, the car began overheating daily and therefore we replaced the radiator.
I drove it fine until December when it randomly overheated one winter day and the following morning would not start.Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead.
These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how used vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system.
Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime. A typical model has about to samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

I am noticing a lot of people are commenting about how their blinkers stay on or freeze; my problem though is that my blinkers and caution lights will not come on at all.
Do you think i just need to replace the relay like everyone else or is there a different problem? The last owner thinks it needs a new fuse but I assume those are more expensive and would hate to buy it if its not needed. Also, I noticed a "Ticking" sound when i turn my car on, we looked under the hood and noticed there was something sparking on the left side under the engine, any ideas? Howdy, Stranger!

October edited July in Hyundai. I have a Tib with under K on it an have just been told the main computer has an electrical short and needs to be replaced. It is causing the left side hazard lights to remain lit after the car is turned off. Has anyone heard of this before and does Hyundai have any secret or hidden warranties for such.
This seems awfully early in the cars life for a computer failure doesnt it. Regular checks at dealer, well maintained????
I have a 2006 hyundia tiburon that randomly won't start
October I am not certain about the extent of the issue other than what you described but ,K is so late in the car's life :P Of course, I think you meantor K. Still, it is not early in a car's life. The model year may be recent butis not.
It does sound like a legit issue and probably does need replacement. However, if you are uncertain, as your post reflects, I'd seek a second opinion from a local mechanic or something. February I realize I'm a couple of months late, but If you havn't spanet the money on a new computer yet yours can be fixed pretty easly.
It a relay in the BCM thats bad. I just did one for one of my customers in November. I have the paperwork here somewere. If you still need it repost and let me know. It takes 2 or 3 days to order the relay and about 2.
