Recalls & Defects

VIN KMHHM65D66U225199 may have been recalled. Check full report for more information

Failure to illuminate the stop lamps during braking or inability to disengage the cruise control could increase the risk of a crash. Additionally, when the ignition is in the 'ON' position, the transmission shifter may be able to be moved out of Park without first applying the brake. This may lead to unintentional movement of the car which may increase the risk of a crash.

Hyundai Motor Company (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2006-2009 Accent, model year 2007-2011 Azera, Sonata and Sante Fe,2006-2011 Tucson, 2009-2011 Elantra Touring, 2007-2010 Elantra, 2008-2011 Veracruz, 2009-2011 Genesis, 2010-2011 Genesis Coupe, 2007-2008 Entourage, and 2006-2008 Tiburon vehicles. 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. In September 2013, Hyundai informed the agency that it was adding more vehicles to this campaign, representing an additional 652,512 units. The total number of vehicles being recalled is now 1,712,336. In the affected vehicles, the stop lamp switch may malfunction. 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. Additionally, a malfunctioning stop lamp switch may also result in intermittent operation of the push-button start feature, affect the operation of the brake transmission shift interlock feature, preventing the shifter from being moved out of the PARK position and cause the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) malfunction light to illuminate.

I purchased my 2006 Tiburon in 2008 at 30,000 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! HOWEVER, I drove the heck out of this car daily, I needed new brakes and new battery in 2011 at around 130,000 miles. (This is amazing for the amount of mileage and wear I put on this vehicle) In July 2014 at 154,000 miles, the car began overheating daily and therefore we replaced the radiator. I drove it fine until December 2014 when it randomly overheated one winter day and the following morning would not start. At 160,000 miles the car required a totally new engine. The cost of the engine replacement was more than the car was valued at the time but I sucked it up and replaced it anyway. I vowed to keep up with the oil changes on schedule!! After the new engine, we lived happily ever after until I purchased a 2011 BMW Mini Cooper in May of 2015 (huge difference, I know, but remember I was only 18 when I chose the Tiburon and now I am 25) I'm now experiencing major problems with the Mini and I'm about to re-tag and insure the faithful loyal old Tiburon again because she has always been there for me! The other quirk to the Tib that I must mention as have others, the thing EATS tires!!!!! I can't even count how many times I have had to buy tires for the car! It's no joke!

This is the one!

After going through car after car after car buying beaters I bit the bullet and finally bought something nice. My boyfriend who has owned a Tiburon already looked it over and gave it a good word. 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. I did notice that my tires are quite worn and I will have to replace them in about 2 to 3 monthes. The passenger side window motor has either been disconnected or no longer works, I'm taking it up to a dealership tomorrow to have that looked at.

This vehicle is terrible

This car is fun to dive, but if you don't have a ton of money, don't buy it. Bought one at 99k miles, it now has 124k. In the span of that 25k, I've replaced all tires twice, replaced the clutch twice, replace the shifter cable twice, replaced the transmission and flywheel. All tiburons after 2003 are crap. Also, any transmission repair (clutch, shifter cable, flywheel, etc.) is 1000$ more than with most cars because it takes extra work in a tiburon to get to the transmission

Don't Waste Your Money.

Bought a 2006 Hyundai Tiburon in 2007 with 9k on the odometer. Ran fine at first. Less than a year later, O2 sensor went out. Replaced that, a week later another, replaced it, a week later another... replaced it, a week later guess what. This thing eats tires despite the fact that the alignment is good. The wear is even across the tire but we get less than 16k out of 30k tires. 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.... Buy a Pinto your repair bills will be cheaper.

Great first sports car!

As searching throughout the market for a decent sports car to start off with in my area, I had found an eye-catching 2006 hyundai Tiburon GT v6. The car had so many great features that I had been looking for but what had sold me was the style of the interior, the sleek body style and the low mileage it had on it. I've owned one of these cars for about two weeks so far and I've found that it is quite fun to drive and even got a few compliments already on the car. I'd definitely recommend this car to anyone who wants a nice reliable sports car.

Excellent value

I bought my Tiburon GT for $8000 about a year ago. I've loved it since day one. It is over all an awesome car to drive. Although, it is not the fastest car. If you are looking for something to race it may not be for you. Its lack of power isn't justified by its fuel economy. I would expect better than 18 city from a 2.7L V6. Over all I would recommend this car to anyone. It is a great deal and is very fun to drive.

I really like it!

Since the first time I saw a Tiburon, I wanted one. Finally, in 2009, I purchased one. It was the first sporty car I'd ever owned and I loved the low slung design. Unfortunately, after I drove it for a few months, I started to have trouble getting out of the door. Back problems soon followed. So I gave the car to my husband who loves it. I think I would have had the same back problems no matter what low-to-the ground car I had driven; it has nothing really to do with the Tiburon. When it reached 58,000 miles it suddenly stopped dead on the street. Fortunately, we were still within the warranty period (barely) and ended up getting a completely new engine under the warranty!

Purchased the car for about $12k with 32k miles beginning January of 11. Had the car for about 5k miles now and it's been a great car. Only major complaints with the car is the clutch rattle, which I'm told is normal. Rattle happens at idle in neutral with the clutch engaged. Other than that, the stereo is kinda hinky. A loud pop and it will quit. Turn the radio off and it will work properly. Car has plenty of low end grunt, handles on rails, and feels like a more expensive car than it is. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and would recommend it to someone else.

Amazing Car,

Despite what some of the reviews on her say I have yet to have any problems with Tiburon at all. I bought it in early 07 at 13k miles. It now is just under 39k miles. It has driven from Florida all the way to Washington, state not D.C., all it needed after that was an oil change. It is VERY comfortable for a sporty car, The car is very comfortable, the seats support your back very well. Though it is a very cramped if you're over 6' if not it seems very roomy. Interior is very sleek and sporty looking. Sunroof can be somewhat stubborn sometimes. Exterior is beautiful as well. One downside is that though it does have 4 seats the back two are some what trivial due to the lack of leg space.

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 had owned a Sonata prior to picking out a brand new Tiburon GT in March of 2007. At just under 19K miles the clutch and flywheel went out on me. Hyundai would not cover this under warranty and dismissed the transmission failure as though I did not know how to drive a manual transmission. The wheel bearings went out on 3 separate occasions as well. The V6 is thirsty resulting in low MPG. Horrible under-steer. Some tricky blind spots until you get use to it. Hyundai's also have crummy resale value. Overall the car is fun to drive, however I highly encourage an extended warranty.

I love my Tiburon

It was used with 21,500 miles on it. I bought it right off the bat. I haven't had any trouble with it what so ever. I'm actually looking into tuning it up. It handles like no other and the ride is smooth. The sound system is great for being stock. The mpg is great too. I live in Idaho and I drove to Salt Lake City, Utah and back on 1/2 tank of gas and it's about a 4 or 5 hour drive from where I live.

I LOVE IT!!!

I drive my tiburon REALLY HARD. and for the last 8 months its been taking it great. ive gone thought 2 sets of tires and tones of gas but i love the car. the V6 dose sound a little under powered when you hear 175 hp but it can do a hell of alot with that 175 deff a great car looks geat and very easy to tune up. stage 2 assains supercharger with ice box and exshust plus a few other things can push you up in the 500 hp area.

The orange crush color is a definite head turner and the car itself is a fun drive. Before giving it to my girlfriend, I drove it hard. Hard enough to bald the tires and bend the master cylinder. Woops! We've done mods to car like an AEM intake, headers straight back with no cat to an ARK exhaust, with a stage one clutch and a light weight flywheel, and a short throw shifter. It sounds nice and isn't obnoxious. My only real complaint is that for a V6, 173 hp is a wee bit under powered. I guess that means if you want a bit more bite and more growl do a an exhaust and an intake. The car will get a little more hp and sound real nice.

The warranty on my 2003 V-6 Automatic T sold me on buying the 2006 GT V-6 Automatic. I've never spent a dime on repairs for either T. The sound system is terrific, mpg is reasonable, comfort is as one would expect in a sports car, and I can drive it 300 miles in 4 - 5 hours without ruining my butt or back. I like the exterior and interior design a lot. I am a nitpicker and whiner, but cannot think of a complaint!

The tiburon is a great car, but it depends on which one you have. The GT's have a lot of issues with the transmissions (clutch, flywheel, shift forks, etc.), but these can all be delayed (if not prevented entirely) by not driving the car like a Ferrari. I bought the SE because it had more options and creature comforts (I live in the northeast, so the mirror defrosters are especially handy.) The car feels heavy in fast turns, but that is only how it feels. Once you get the hang of the seemingly slow steering and the delay on the clutch, you really start to enjoy the sporty feel of the extra notchy 6-speed gearbox. Bottom line, it feels like an expensive sportscar in an import's clothes.

So you're thinking about making a car purchase, however you want something different out there. You're tired of all those 4 door sedans, that all look the same, drive the same, and are BORING...well no fear...because I was in your shoes about a year ago. The 2006 Hyundai Tiburon is an awesome Sports car! The look is great (especially yellow), the ride is comfortable and it's got some juice to it too. It's a QUICK car, not a FAST car (there's a difference). 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 20,000 miles of driving since I got it! Did I mention, it's inexpensive?

Car is BABIED, and yet at only 25k miles I've had to put her in the shop nearly every 3 months for something major. It never ends. Had to replace numerous speed censors, the entire flywheel/clutch assembly, complete transmission change-out (mine is a 6- speed manual, that suddenly gave out a couple weeks ago), and sunroof control, along with ongoing minor annoyances like constant blown fuses from stock wiring issues. Ridiculous. I love this car to death and take such good care of it.. but every time I turn around I'm running into major work that needs to be done on her. Having bought her used, I only get the 60k mile warranty, so I might SELL her before then! Yikes.

My wife says it looks like nothing can take the smile off my face when I'm driving it. I went out looking to replace my Kia Spectra because it was boring. A perfectly good car, but boring, and this Tiburon is certainly exciting. I love it.

I bought my 2006 Tiburon in November 2005 and I have loved my car, I have never had problems with it. Then my clutch started making a rattling noise that was so loud that the passengers could hear it. Once the clutch was pushed in, the noise would stop. I took it in and they told me that my entire transmission would have to be replaced. Thankfully it is covered by the 100k powertrain warranty. I did buy a K&N air filter for it, and thankfully I didn't put it in or they probably would have said that it voids the warranty. How stupid. I'm not sure how many other people have had problems with their transmissions. This is obviously a defect.

My car was flawless for the first 21,000 miles (2 years). The problem was initially diagnosed as "collapsed engine lifters" but after this repair failed to correct the issue a new engine "short block" was installed. After another 1,750 miles the "new" engine short block proved to be "defective". During the 5 weeks the dealership had the car to install the 2nd short block we gave up and bought a Nissan. Very disappointing.

I bought my tiburon new only had 45 miles on it and I loved everything about it. I want to say that it is a safe car. I was recently in a accident. July 6th. I hit 4 trees going over 100 mph. Not sure why I was doing that fast. My memory of the crash is gone and before the crash so I cant say what I was doing. But I don't have any broken bones or any serious injuries. I see pictures of the car after the crash and I say I am lucky to be alive. I think the car had a lot to do with it. Thanks Hyundai for building such a safe car!

Let me start by saying that I have had nothing but trouble with this car in the 15 months that i owned it. It the first two months the power window broke and the visor fell off. After 12 months & 13,000 miles I had to put $1,400 dollars into getting a new clutch since the warranty expires after 12 months or 12,000 miles. Not to mention that before i traded it in they told me i had another problem with the transmission. Be aware also that any up grades will void your warranty, including changing your own oil. I will never buy another Hyundai...period

Great Car!!!

I have an orange crush tibby that turns heads and really glows. Never mind the nominal hp -- this car is fast and you can navigate traffic like a star. BMWs have a hard time keeping up. It purs beautifully. Get the sunroof -- it's the first time I've had one and it's important for the overall feel and comfort. Also, mine doesn't have rear windshield wipers and that needs to be remedied. The seats are very comfortable, but part of a cockpit feel that you have to slip into -- always pull the manually operated seats back as you get in and out (that's a fun factor too). This car's not for your if you're taller than 6' or overweight. The is a high rev'r and mileage is mediocre.

Brought brand new in Jan of 06. Car is has been fun to drive over the past 1.5 yrs but have had numerous problems with the car.BCM unit needed to be replaced, now transmission. Hyundai warranty will not cover much. Hyundai is refusing to fix my transmission because I upgraded the spark plugs and sparks plug wiring for the 30K service. They are considering the upgrade performance parts therefore voiding my warranty. I will not buy another Hyundai, if you paid me, they pulled the same thing on me when my clutch need replaced on my 03 Elantra after 12k miles.

I have really enjoyed driving my Tiburon for the last year. My husband and I just drove it to Texas for vacation in July and found it to be comfortable even on the 18-hour drive. We were really surprised and will be driving it on all our trips in the future.

I couldn't really afford the Accord I wanted and the Civic was just too squaty looking. I saw an article in the paper about the Tiburon and Hyundai and was sold. It had the sunroof and 6- disc changer the I was looking for. It is a great car and I love to drive it.

"Yeah right.. a HYUNDAI.." or at least that's what I thought when I was ready to buy a new car. My Ford died at 84,000 miles so I traded it in for $4,000 looking at the Civic Si, Eclipse, WRX, tC, RSX, and a few others. Loved my stepsister's 06 Sonata so decided to give Hyundai a try. I never thought I'd own a Korean car, but this one is perfect. My car had to have auto climate, V6 (or similar) refinement, leather, moon roof, and premium sound. That pretty much knocked everything out but the Tiburon, Eclipse, and RSX. Minor complaints, but no regrets. This was the best car by far. Firm but not harsh, comfortable but not boring, feels like our 06 C280 in terms of driving feel. Love it.

I've had this car for four weeks and I've had so much fun with it. So far I've racked up about 3,700 miles with it and I have to say I'm definitely satisfied. When buying my car, I considered the Civic Si, Scion tC, Acura RSX, Mitsubishi Eclipse, Corolla Type S, and of course the Hyundai Tiburon. It was so typical to think "eww, korean car", but after many test drives, I picked this car because it had what others didn't offer (two-tone interior + leather, auto climate and auto headlights, V6!!!, etc). There are bad parts like the lack of a trunk opener on the remote (despite being electronically popped open), but i like this car. Don't be fooled by my long list of cons, I'm just picky.

I love this car, as I loved its predecessors. However, like my 2001 Elantra GT, the information from the onboard computer is virtually illegible during daytime operation. It's fine at night. It does help if I remove my polarized transitional glasses, but my basic feeling is that should not be necessary. My only other suggestion would be to add an exterior release to the hatch as on most hatchbacks. This year, HYUNDAI eliminated the wiper/washer for the rear window , an aesthetic improvement with minimal reduction in functionality. Perhaps the savings could have been used to add an exterior manual release for the hatch!

This car is an owners nightmare. Yes, its fun to drive, but so far, the compressor, engine, and stick shift has blown , all under 30k miles. I have never recieved such horrible service than at ALL of the hyundai dealreships ive been to. All this, and Ive already has a LEMON tiburon before the one Icurrently own. I brought the dealership to court and they gave me another peice of crap in return. Ill never buy a hyundai again. Whats the chance that you get 2 BAD cars of the same make/model from 2 different states? Slim. I doubt its a coincidence.

I drive this car A LOT and I really love it. My daughter frequently "borrows" it, so she must think it's pretty cool too. I really like the way it looks inside and out and I LOVE the feel of the seats. The seats are so comfortable, they feel like they are just molded to your body. I love the way the hood is sculpted and the look of the instrumentation at night. I spend a lot of time in the car, I don't notice a lot of road noise or bumps. Very smooth and quiet.

This car was a LOT less expensive than I imagined. I looked at Eclipse and Mazda 3,6,RX8 and I think the Tiburon looks better than any of them. The car takes corners so nicely you almost don't feel them. The 4 cyl does not accelerate as fast as my last car (A Prism- can you believe it!?) which was disappointing. Also in 5th gear the car runs high rpms.... feels like the car needs a 6th gear. This makes highway driving a little noisier than I expected. Good stereo system helps to make up for this. If you're looking for style and a smooth drive for less $, this is an excellent car for you.

The car handles well. It compares to a 1988 300Z that I bought new. The GS that I bought has only the 2.0 4cyl, but is spunky enough to be a blast. I decided to cut costs by getting the small engine at lower initial cost and better fuel mileage. I do not regret that decision

I was initally in the market for an Eclipse, but then I saw the Tiburon and thought that it looked like something I might like to be seen in. I must say, that I love this car. It reminds me so much of my Mazda that I foolishly got rid of, the gear shitfs, handling and "zip" are amazing, and with the way gas is now, after going back and forth to work, two weeks later - I still have yet to get gas...that is now one of the best reasons to buy this car.

This is my first car purchase. I am not a street racer but I wanted a smaller car, definately a two door, and it had to look cool. This is the smoothest ride of any car I have ever been in. When I do 80 it feels like I am doing 40 (which landed me a ticket unfortunately). The limited edition is well worth it. The leather is very classy and the sound system rules. I wouldn't reccomend this car for a racer as the horse power is a bit below par of other cars like the eclipse. But this car destroys the scion Tc, anyday. If you're a person looking for a cool 2 door ride that is affordable, this is the way to go for sure. I cannot reccomend this car enough.

Value for money, fit for purpose, fun to drive. If you enjoy tearing up $ bills so you can convince friends and relatives you earn more money than they do (sometimes not true), you won't enjoy the Tiburon. It's not perfect (or rather not perfectly balanced - bit too heavy, and a bit too much torque steer), but it's a car that really does try to deliver what you want of it.

For the money it's super

This Car first grabbed my attention for it's style, I wanted a sports car with a sleek and sexy design, this car definitely has it. It drives really smooth, but it could use more pick up and power. it is average in gas mileage, but considering it is a V-6, I expected that. It handles really well on the turns, and the michelin tires are the perfect touch for superior road hugging capabilities, they do ride hard over bumps though, all in all this car is a highly recommended ride it delivers performance, sought after features, reliability, and it just a beautiful car that gets alot of second looks. compared to cars in it's class, the Tib, is in my opinion, the best car for the money.

I purchased my 2006 Tiburon SE almost 2 months ago. It is a dream car. I recommend to buy the higher model, the SE. It is well worth the meager $22,000. I first test drove a silver one. And then went to another dealership and found an orange one that I fell in love with. Even though the numbers don't sound like much 2.7 L with 172 hp and $22,000. It's lightning fast.

My only complaint is the armrest in the middle console could be a little higher to rest your arm on. Seats are a bit stiff, but keeps you on your toes. You just want to get in this car and drive it!

I got sick of making repairs for my last vehicle, so I bit the bullit and bought new. I'm glad I did. The Tiburon caught me by surprise with quality and style for the money (not to mention warrantee). I've only had the car for a week, but it has a very comfortable ride, a hot looking interior with red stitched leather wheel and seats, and a great stereo. The 5 speed shifts nicely and the clutch is pretty forgiving. Since it's a hatchback there is a ton of room for storage for a pretty small car, another big positive. The only things I could wish for are a standard 6 speed manual, a couple more horses under the hood or better gas mileage from the 2.7l v6 (rated at 19/26)

The radio antenna is manual, i.e., one gets out of the car and unscrews it before going through a car wash. I didn't know this was a possibilty and of course the salesman did not mention it. Where I live snow is packed in and I cannot get it off (ok, so I'm 64 years old). But otherwise, it is a great car (although I've only had it for a week). I love the short stick shift and everything else about it.

I'm very happy with my purchase. I'm not really a "car" guy, I see it mostly as transportation nothing else. When I saw this car I loved the look immediatly and the GT Limited leater interior is great looking. Performance wise it's all I could want and need. Gas mileage isn't as good as many smaller cars but I knew that going in. Friends will always tell you it's a nice car, but strangers come up to me commenting on what a great looking car it is and I can see it gets a lot of attention when I'm going down the road. Great color (electric red) with a great design makes this car look at feel as good as the mor expensive sports cars. I love it.

Since 2003, the new disgned Tiburon has been setting a trend. This sporty coupe will turn heads as the exterior designor was an ex-Ferrari engineer. The Tiburon has excellent transmission, automatic or manual. With the option of a 5/6 speed manual or an automatic with Shiftronic (allows manual gear operation), the Tiburon is a great 2 door hatchback coupe.

This is my fourth Hyundai, and my third TIBURON. I was unhappy with my previous dealership's service manager. When I took my 2003 model to my new dealer for routine service, I saw a 2006 on the lot, took it for a test drive, and fell in love. It's loaded with bells and whistles. Its handling is great for city and interstate driving. I can transport bulky items in my trunk, and the rear seat is available for small friends and/or my dog. It draws favorable comments from other drivers and parking valets. I'm trying to limit my response to strangers who compliment the car to "thank you" and not feel obliged to tell them how little it cost!

This vehicle is a lot quicker than I expected it to be. Put some rims on it and I think its the best looking car out there for the money.

Purchased it for 16-year-old son's birthday (1st car-Dec.7 '05) and we love it. We did not get the V6 because I don't want something that would be too much of a hot rod for a young driver. We find that it has PLENTY of pep for take off and city driving, as well as highway. I've read reviews that say it's underpowered, but we beg to differ. Perhaps compared to a turbo or sports car with a larger engine, but I drive a Jetta turbo and I still find this car to be outstanding. It's solid, beautiful and has the best warranty you can find anywhere. In fact, we've already decided to buy another one next year, so we will be repeat buyers when the 07 comes out.

Nice looking zippy car

This car is a very nice realiable car for a sport compact. The design of the car is definitely a head turner. I of course have young kids coming up to me asking me about it but what I thought was weird is that older men in their 50s or later seem to be interested in this lil car. I guess it does make a good mid life crisis car that is very affordable at around 22 grand for the SE six speed model that i have. It gets what it says it gets and that is 26mpg. It is a zippy lil car but i would be happier for the v6 to be putting out more like 230 hp instead of the week 172. I guess its easier to honor that 10 year 100,000 mile drive train warranty that way. Anyway its a very good car for the cash

Hot look, Comfort in Spades

This car just looks hot. Much like the Ferarri 456 GT. Inside, if you get the GT limited edition, the leather seats look like something out of a car that retails at over $50k. Performance is not stellar, but more than does the job when the V6 upgrade is purchased. All around an excellant vehicle for the price!

What a kewl car!

We actually just purchased this car for my husband...and I actually love it just as much! It is very cute and very fun to drive. I think that it doesn't make any difference to me about the engine cylinder it has way more power than my elantra. I love hyundai and all their cars are great! =0)

SWEEEEEEET!!!!!!!

When the Tiburon is driven hard, it literally burns its tires. It has the athleticism of its lighter weight competitors. Its V6 is very confident and its steering is very responsive. Despite it is little bit heavy for a sport coupe, its effective powerful engine over comes any challenges. This car outperforms its competitors such as Toyota Celica, Acura RSX, Mitsubish Eclipse and delivers a smooth ride.
