Blower Motor Switch

How do you replace the blower motor switch on a 2003 Hyundai Tiburon? My blower works on speeds one and two, but will not work on speeds three and four. I was told it was the resistor, but that was replaced and did not fix the problem. I was then told it was the switch.

I’m going to do it myself to save some money, just have no idea how to. Read More

Hi, I have heard of a Hill Holder clutch. but that is a Subaru thing. Hmmm. Uphill starting is kind of nerve racking. It’s hard to not slip the clutch alittle due to the additional power the car needs to overcome the grade of the hill.

Honestly, I would suggest NOT doing alot of hill climbing from a stop while you are learning. When you get good at general take offs. Read More

Hyundai Tiburon engine races to 3500 RPM

While in park, my 2003 Tiburon GT V6 races to 3500 RPM when I barely tap on the accelerator. Also RPM fluctuates and surges while driving, very scary! I have replaced the TPS, Idle Air Control, and the MAF sensor.

I also cleaned the throttle body and checked for vacuum leaks but did not find any. The only way to get the RPMs down is to unplug the Idle Air Control. Read More

2007 Hyundai Tiburon – Bad Clutch

I bought my Tiburon 14 months ago with 15000 miles on it. It now has 35300 miles. I’ve had it in to the dealership over a dozen times for various problems; on 3 occasions reported problems with the clutch. (but because they couldn’t replicate the problem it got dismissed.) I’ve been noticing over the past few weeks its become harder to drive; doesn’t accelerate like it should.

I was very interested in the 2003 Hyundai Tiburon coupe, in 5-speed form. Apparently there’s problems with the clutches breaking in the first 20,000-30,000 miles on the 2003 Hyundai Tiburon‘s. Check the following model years for these problems, too. Hyundai will not cover clutch assemblies and even the flywheel connection.

And Hyundai is calling it normal wear and tear. Please comment on this and then let us know how your clutch experience is. Read More

Hyundai is doing like all the rest, which is sad indeed, by not being will to just fix the 2003 model cars with this problem, is my take on this if they did have defective. Read More

Hyundai just does not have a very good record when it comes to reliability, hence the concern for a lemon risk. And to me, the Hyundai’s look kind of tinny. You had an AT, Tiburon; I am considering a five speed for the boy, because he REALLY wants a manual.

But it is the MTs of the Tiburon that seem to be having problems, still, you suggest? The tC did have. Read More

Who said you’re considering a lemon?

Think all the good things you want to about Toyota, but sometimes when cars get a reputation, they stretch it, along with your billfold.

So, Tiburon is a great deal considering the content of the car vs. the competition, yet sales are not too stellar. I see some around. Is it a lack of advertising? There is a class action suit in regards to the clutch on the 2003 model GT. While it appears to be a defect, and thus may indeed end up being covered, it is not a normally covered item.

Top 10 Coolest New Cars Under $18K

Written by: broadband on May 10, 2003 4:34:54 AM

Hyundai Tiburon

The sleeper hit of 2003 and an all-round favorite of the Kelley Blue Book editorial team is the Hyundai Tiburon. Its sports-car styling, comfort and performance made this car just plain fun to drive, and from 22 years old to 50 years old, we all looked cool driving it. http://www.kbb.com/kb/coolestNewCars

Love my 2003 GT-V6!

Written by: skuuter on Apr 4, 2003 12:21:30 PM

I accidentally ran across one of the new Tiburons while checking out a Mazda 626 and debating about giving a Sonata a chance. Once I drove the Tiburon, I had to have it! The car exceeded my expectations in every way. And the price was more than reasonable. Due to my daily commute, I opted for the Shiftronic automatic version, so you’ll have to take that into account.

I’m 46 so. Read More

Availability

Written by: stshane on Apr 2, 2003 3:52:46 PM

Hyundai is not a large-scale company yet where they can do factory orders (at least this is what I have been told). Usually a dealership will have to do a dealer trade to get a specific car that you want. I don’t know what the size of the dealer is that you are looking at so it is hard to say what you will find.

Packages?

Written by: kestrel02 on Apr 2, 2003 3:35:23 PM

How available (like on the lot) are some of the Tiburon packages going to be? I’m looking at a 2003 GT V6 with the Sprint package, because I really want ABS and I’d rather not have black leather which is a nightmare here in the South during the hot months. Is this something I’m likely to find on a lot?

I admit, I find the Hyundai dealers search options very uninformative. Read More

Yeah, I know I said I was done. I woke up this morning and had it on my mind that you guys just don’t understand my point. Yes, I do understand your point.

My point is if Hyundai could take all the people that bought the Tiburon and when they brought their car in for service modify the car to have the rated 180 horsepower, guess what, you would be driving. Read More

Apocalypse13, I have had the same problem with the hatch seal leaking, but it only occurs when there is extremely heavy rain. I don’t know if it is just the seal or just poor dissipation of the pooled water. As for those people having trouble merging. the Tiburon has side view mirrors that are mounted much differently than most cars.

The mirrors sprout from behind where the A-pillar connects and are. Read More

I bought a 2003 Tiburon in May (GT-V6, leather, 5-speed, 17 rims, sunroof) and I have loved it. The only problem so far has been the sunroof, which was recalled anyway. When I bought mine I received 2 price quotes from the two Hyundai dealers in my area.

One was for $300 under MSRP and the other for $500 under. I viewed both as great quotes, since the car had just. Read More

at least until late 2003. I saw an update from Import Racer magazine tonight on his 2003 Hyundai Tiburon GTV6 project car. He now has 18 inch wheels, Tien SuperStreet coilovers, a wicked looking side body kit and he just had an Alpine Development supercharger kit installed to the tune of $2900.

The kit enables the Tib to produce 50 more hp and 38 more foot/pounds of torque. He said that. Read More

I took a look at Import Racer magazine(Oct 02 issue)where

they are modifying a 2003 Tiburon GT6. The magazine writer’s test model had just had the Tein SuperStreet coilovers put on. Sweet!

Take a look at the magazine if you like this great looking new sports car from Hyundai. With this suspension you’ll be able to turn a screw and get 16 separate settings of riding comfort(or relative discomfort!). The finished picture has the silver GT6 sitting next to a competitor(a. Read More

Since 1999, I’ve been attracted too the Tibby. I was introduced to it by the son of the man who produce’s Hyundai’s entire interior’s. Of course, Han had the car completely done up, with things like real wood paneling, which most of us can not get, even if we were willing to pay for it.

So this year I did some research into the car, as I’m very attracted to it. Read More

Although I was generally impressed with the Tiburon, it was, IMHO, far down at the bottom of this bunch.
