Pros

Handling! I pass cops driving around corners!

Cons

They screw up the oil filter specs in the auto shops. The filter listed for the 2004 doesn't fit the 2004, I have to use the filter listed for the 2003.

Pandora — The Tiburon GT handles very well. I own a manual transmission, so the control is significantly better. The acceleration is great, braking is very controlled, and handling is very good. The car rides quite low and wide, so it corners very well. I've had a few passengers comment on the interior appearance, how the dashboard looks like it belongs on an airplane, and that's what it was intended to look like. I like the interior. The car is supposedly tested at getting 19 mpg city/22 mpg highway, but I've never had it that bad. I average between 25 and 28 mpg, mostly highway, and for one rather long trip, the car averaged 30 (!!!) mpg. That's impressive for a sports car in my book.

Looks great and handles well, fun to drive!

Cons

Poor interior air flow (no a/c or sunroof).

35

Love My Car! — The handling is great and acceleration is very good for a small engine. Gas mileage is quite good even though I am a bit of a leadfoot. I dislike the fact that there is no air conditioning and it is like a furnace when the sun is shining. Also, because the back windows don't open, the air flow is very poor. I love my car because i love driving it anywhere!

My Ride — Handles well, goes pretty quick for a standard six but would be nicer if it were all wheel drive and had supercharger factory fitted.

Pros

I like how the car has held up for me over seven years.  It is a fun ride and makes a lot of noise.

Cons

I wish Hyundai would of made these cars rear wheel drive.  Plus it needs a six gear, five are fine but its runs at some high rpms.

Its A Good Overall — Performance- My car has had some work done to it. A staged two clutch with a lighter flywheel, cold air intake, header, and exhaust. The car gets great gas mileage, Im over 200,200 miles and still getting over 33 mpg. Maintenance on the car is great, all the parts are to remove and get to. Most of the bolts are 10 mm, so it makes live easier. When I replaced all the coolant hoses, the dealer had them is stock and was cheaper then auto stores.

Pros

I love the seats and how the car sticks to the road when cornering

Cons

People laugh because it is made by Hyundai.

Love My Tibby! — The car is the 4 cylinder, but I added a cold air intake and it is pretty quick! The build quality is great and nothing is falling apart or breaking down. It is very affordable to own and I get 29-30mpg on the freeway and about 25 on the city streets. Fun car that gets lots of looks.

7500.00 — love this car fun and fast just 1 minor problem i need to get checked out. The six speed is a blast and the v6 has enough power to play around with very tight in the corners and good acceleration. lots of leg room leather interior and exhaust sounds great

Pros

This car is quick and sporty with great body lines.

Cons

Stay clear from their manual transmission unless you plan to completely replace the stock unit with a high performance system that will actually function properly.

Avoid It Like The Plague. — This car was quick, easy to handle and very attractive looking, but had some SERIOUS engineering problems. I had mine a total of 4,000 miles before the entire rotating mass in the transmission was destroyed. Apparently when the engineers at Hyundai designed the transmission, they didn't take into account that when the clutch was completely let out, the clutch was not completely engaged. Finally, when the clutch failed, Hyundai refused to replace it under the factory warranty even though it was a flaw in their transmission that caused the premature failure of the clutch assembly.

Reliable

Cons

Lack of Performance

Average — The Tiburon is a very attractive car. However, the stock Tiburons are garbage when it comes to horsepower. In order to get anywhere near 300 WHP you'll need to spend thousands on forced induction. The car is more for looks, then it is for speed and power.
