If a Tiberon has been properly maintained, and driven nicely, sure it'll make it to 200K mi. BUT that's a big IF

I am currently at 194,000 miles and the car is runing great. Take care of the car and it will take care of you. I have owned it since 2006 and have replaced the clutch and replaced the axles. Take care of your car.

My 2003 is at 135,000 and is still running strong, still fun to drive and reliable - I've seen them with over 200,000.. Just maintain it, clean oil, clean air, clean fuel, repair problems and you will see 200,000 easy..

I have 138,000 right now on my 2008 SE and it runs awesome. I have replaced the water pump, suspension and clutch. Need to have the rear brakes done, Like it is said "Take care of your car and it will take care of you"

I bought my tib 2003 couple days ago and have to changed theverything clutch and flywheel and it is expensive 1800$ I'm wondering if it's worth it , the car has 105000 mile and the first owner took careffect of the car

i am a owner of a 2003 tiburon gt. it has well over 201,000 miles and still runs perfect without any problems.


I have a Tiburon GT Limited automatic with 148,000 miles. I just replaced the CV joints (first set), both rear bearings and disks (first set), rear brake pads, Tires and plugs(NGK Iridium) and wires (NGK). The timing belt and water pump were replaced at 136,000, along with a transmission and cooling system flush when I purchased it.. The motor oil was changed to synthetic at purchase. The motor is tight (no blue smoke) and the transmission shifts smoothly. It is still a beautiful rust free coupe. The CD player finally gave out, oh well.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention its a 2006.


My 2001 Tiburon 2.0 4 cylinder engine has 217,000 easy freeway miles. I'm the original owner and have only had minor repairs done on the car (window motor, axles, radiator, alternator). The car still runs like a champ and I think it should get to 250,000 miles with no problems, maybe even a lot more. It's the stop and go situation that really wears on the engine I think, like I said most of my miles are on a clear freeway.

I have a 2007 tiburon with a 2.7.V6 5speed. I currently have 303000 miles on the car. It will probly run for another 300000. The timing belt was replaced at 250000. The clutch assembly was replaced at 180000. Here in Virginia we have yearly inspections and the Tibby sails through with few problems (mainly light bulbs). I put on 1000 miles a week on my car because i live 75 miles from work one way.

I have 2007, Hyundai Tiburon GT limited V6 (6 speed manual). It has 248300 miles. Change cluth around 180k miles, cost me around $2,300, change timing belts ~$500, rear break, oil change (Synthetic oil/ high mileage Synthetic blend) every 16k kms, need new coolant. And need to change small things. I hope it will hit 350k miles.

I absolutely love all these positive comments about the Tiburon!! I have an 04 GT Spec Edition and LOVE it! Going on 160k miles...Hope I get another 160k+ out of it. I can't think of parting with it. I live in PA and winter road treatments...not a spot of rust on it, yet. It's the best car I've ever owned! :)

I just got an 03 v6 5speed with 101k transmission is out I was having doubt in where or not I wanted the tiburón but I see it’s a reliable car think Ima keep it
