Used cars are only as reliable as the previous owners maintenance schedule. If the car was well maintained it will be reliable. If the car has been abused and neglected it won't be. The only way to really know if the car has been well maintained is to have a certified mechanic do a complete mechanical inspection on the car. They can tell you if the car has been taken care of or if it has been ignored.

Yes, that model is pretty reliable and not very technical, so less electrical problems. The pro's are coupes hold there value and this model is cheap to maintain. The con is the much improved Genesis coupe replaced the Tiburon in 2009, if the price is close pay a bit more for the Genesis coupe and you won't regret it.

A colleague of mine owns one. He maintains it per the usual schedule, and has seen trouble-free days. Before you buy any car, do check for spare parts availability in your country/vicinity. If some frequently used parts have to be shipped in from Korea, then it is troublesome. Take it for a test drive and you will be able to decide. I agree with you that it is a beautiful looking car. Good luck.

I had a 2003 and drove it for 10 years. I had to change the oil, put new tires on it, replace the battery, install new brakes... wait a minute, that's normal expenses. It was a very reliable car.

That was the last year for the Tiburon where the Genesis came in the next year with the rear wheel drive. The Tibby is a front wheel drive. The four and six cylinder engines are very very reliable. The automatic trans is reliable as long as it have been serviced as per the maintenance schedule by the manufacturer - simply fluid changes at scheduled intervals. Neither car is very useful when driving in snow in the winters. Give a nod to the Tibby for the front wheel drive there, especially with some good snow tires. Good luck.

Actually the previous owner has ownly somewhat to do with it. Yes it can be well taken care of, but it still depends on the brand. A well maintained Toyota will outlast a well maintained Saturn, or Kia anyday. I don't care how old it is. Some products are just built to last, and some aren't. Maintanence is good, but doesn't tell all.
