Looked Great — If Hyundai built an airplane, I'd ride my bicycle. This was my first brand new car, where to begin first to second didn't syncro, 3 windshields, 8 wiper blades, 10 tires, 2 sets of headlights, and fog lights, poor air flow with windows down, slow, heavy clutch, no ABS, terrible in snow, spend the extra money and get the GT with the 6 speed, cruised 70mph in 5th gear at 3600 rpm

Pros

Looks good, it's quick, good handling, cheap after market parts. Appearance can be improved dramatically with minor exterior changes.

Cons

Engine is pretty limited, can't be boosted efficiently. No rear seat head room. Got totaled in a 20mph collision.

Another Great Driver — Really light clutch, tons of fun to drive. Good comfortable interior, not too cheap for the price of the car.

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.

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.

Over powerful enige that slips gas

Cons

plastic everywhere

Alot Of Go For Little Coin — A bang for the buck. A 2.5 liter four banger with 161hp. enough acceleration to glue you to the seat. Zero tourque steer on the FF platform. Tight track quality handling. Solid build with very unique styling. This eats hondas for breakfast toyotas for lunch and lancers if they havent "evolved"
