Hyundai offers impressive warranty coverage on all of its cars, including a five-year/60,000-mile limited warranty. The Tiburon also comes with a ten-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.

Kelley Blue Book calls Hyundai's warranty "among the most generous in the U.S." However, AutoWeek argues, "From the initial examination of the build and material quality in the Tiburon - which is high -- the long-term warranty may be superfluous."
