2003 Hyundai Tiburon Gt — The Tiburon GT is a great car for performance and exceleration. I bought the car because i wanted a car that could get me good fuel mileage (around 22-24 average) and had a little get up and go juice when i wanted it. I love the sporty look of the car and it has nice leather interior. It has great acceleration for the engine size, decent braking ability, and good handing around corners. I haven't had to fix anything other than a head light since i bought the car. The car is alot of fun to drive. My only complant would be that i am 6'3" and there is not a whole lot of room in the car. That and the back seat really has no function other than storage.

Great Sports Car — I love how the Tiburon looks and feels. It's a great sports car and handles very well. Being 6'2" I was worried that I may not fit in the drivers seat since a lot of older sports cars are not made for tall people but I had no problem with the Hyundai. It is possible to have people in the back seat but not recommended. There really isn't any leg room back there but if needed in a pinch it's possible to squish em in. Overall I love my Tiburon and am very happy with my purchase.

Sexy Rose Red! — This was one of the top cars I have owned...very fun to drive, the interior styling was awesome! The gas mileage was good. I did get into an accident in this car b/c of how fast and light it was on the highway. The car just crumbled and looked terrible. However, I did come out unharmed.

Love My Tibby — I love the looks outside and in.. The only problem with the looks is the front bumper.. I cant wait to get the Angular one. Performance wise.. I don't know if its just age, But the suspension is a bit soft. Its a little bit lacking in mid range power for a 2.0 thats not rediculously heavy.. But it is decent on gas :) I love the car, and in the near future I have plans to fix her im perfections ;D

I Love It — Taco Bob (my car's name) handles like a dream, runs great, and actually gets quite good gas mileage. As for"build quality" it's probably not the absolute best out there, but it is a rebuilt title so that may be influencing my decision/oppinion a bit. I really like the look of it; I just don't see many of them around. As for cost, it wasn't too expensive and gets good mileage. Overall it's a great car, and really fun to drive!

The Car Is Great — The car handles well, brakes work great. The car is fun to drive, get a little pep when you want, very safe to drive as the handling is that of most sporty cars. The gas mileage is great, 24 city and 35 hwy.
