#632 of 669 2008 Tiburon when out?
Sep 07, 2007 (8:30 pm)
We own a 2000 tiburon & a XG-350. Was going to buy a 2007 Tiburon $16,800 for a GS w/auto & sunroof. Decided to wait till 2008's come out Called Hyundai consumer affairs & couldn't/wouldn't give me a date when they will be on car lots. Called corporate headquarters and they said we'll check with production and call back. That was a week ago. No reply. Anybody with firm knowledge out there for when they will be on lots If it's December I'll buy an Eclipse now.
#633 of 669 2007 Tiburon GS OEM Tires

My 07 Tiburon GS model with an automatic came with Hankook H411 tires. I live in the southwest suburbs of Chicago and was wondering if anyone in the Midwest had any issues in the past using Hankook OEM tires on their Tiburons in general during the winter months. Any feedback would be appreciated.
Thanks for the Read !

I'm in the market for a car for my son who's getting his d.l in a year. But I want to drive it as well. I've heard conflicticting stories about the Tiburon. I'm looking at the 03 and the 04 models. Are they reliable or not??

There have been issues with the clutch on the '03 (if I recall correctly) but beyond that the drive train is off the shelf Hyundai and is used elsewhere in their lineup.
As the father of a 17yo new driver, you might want to check with your insurance agent before you get too far down this road. A 4cyl they might go with, but here in Texas the 6cyl was over the top on rates for a new driver.

Well i currently drive a 03 GT V6 5Speed, I have close to 115k on her. Somewhere around 30,000 miles, the power window stop working, it was replaced under warrenty and thats it! Never did nothing to hear, just changed the oil and replaced front brakes once, rear brakes twice. Oh-ya and tires! I really wanna trade her in, but she been so damn good to me, it hard to let her go!!

Sounds like you know how to drive a stick. I have never had premature failure of a clutch either, but have seen some who could kill one in <10K.

im looking at a 2004 tiburon gt v6 6 speed with about 30,000 miles on it. The person wants 13,500 for the car. I was wondering if that is a good deal or should i offer him a lower price. Any feed back would be much appreciated
