Tiburon — For a first car it really did me justice. I'm 19 and have had it for 3 years. It has not a single time broke down on me. Other than the usual tune ups (break pads, oil, rotors) I have had no serious repairs needed. The exhaust note is nice and deep and i always receive complements on the looks and sound. Its not seriously fast but for the cost it does its job. The only true thing that i can think of over the years that was annoying was the fact that there is virtually no room in the back for friends etc. For a first car to cruise around town with its seriously great.

Pros

Very quick on the pedal, good looking and fair gas mileage for a 2 door sports car.

Cons

Back seats are useless. Trunk can hit the head of whom is in the back.

Wannabe Speed Demon — Eh, its a nice car that is fairly cheap and still very fast for its time even though its low on horsepower, it can still pick up speed rather rapidly from 40 to 120 or when in traffic from 60 to 120 rather quick.

I love this car so much, it runs good and I wouldn't sell it if my status didn't change.

Cons

It's little for a big family to fit in.

Great — What I like about this car it's its turbo engine, so powerful and it makes me look cool and young. It doesn't cost that much for gas usage. But the only thing I dislike about it is that it's too little for the whole family to fit in. Also i feel comfortable driving my new born in it.

Over All Good — not stock... custom exhaust and custome intake with iridium tipped spark plugs. the car is over all slow. it has a low cost to upkeep and is very reliable. it is fun to drive and over all a great car to have.

Pretty Awesome If You Have A Fairly New One If Not Kinda A Heap Of Junk — has very nice black rims with black tail lights, dvd player with 7 inch flip up touch screen, rear view camera, navigation system, blue flame seat covers, tuscani emblems on front and rear, and really turns heads for the visuals

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Hyundai Tiburon Gt V6 — I keep my stuff real clean. I'm getting the lambo doors on soon. And I'm going to get black rims and blacked out tinted windows. It hasn't needed any repairs just oil changes. I'm redoing my interior, I'm going to have red accent lights. Everything all the cloth is going to be black with red lining. I'm going to have red vents pretty much anything that is silver red. I get about 28 miles to the gallon on the GT V6. All my performance is good, good fast car to race.

Awesome, Fun, But Has Its Downsides — The 2005 year was refresh year for the Tiburon and in my opinion the minimum year anyone should have, The new headlights, taillights and interior are must haves. The car is a bit underpowered in stock form. I have added performance spark plugs and wires, an Injen Cold Air Intake, a Magnaflow HiFlow Cat, and a Borla Catback exhaust and it seems to be the right amount of power now. I have upgraded the brakes so it is much better at stoping but not a problem stock, build quality is much improved and very nice, Cost of ownership is low, and this car is a blast to drive!

I got it brand new (32 miles on the odometer) listed at $23,000. It was supposed to get 19 city and 26 highway mpg, (the best I've gotten was 25, and I won't say the worst haha) I've never had to do any mantainance other than regular oil and filter changes, 6 month tire rotations, and a few upgrades. -$1200 18" MKW Chrome M71 Wheels -$900 225/40/18 BF Goodrich KDW Performance tires -$350 AEM Cold Air Intake System Painted brake calipers, matallic "Tiburon" SE Foot rest/accelerator/brake pedals, chrome "Tiburon" liscense plate frame, bright white head/fog lights. I wouldn't trade my Tiburon for any new car out there under $50,000, and I not just saying that because I cannot aford one... i just like my tib that freakn much son haha
