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!

Boss — Beautiful, that's the best way to describe my car. Moonlit blue, fully loaded with a 440 watt ten inch sub, 6 disc/cassette, Auto A/C, black leather with red stitching, I could keep going... 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

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.

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.

Pros

Sporty, sexy lookin car

Cons

Affordable — Steering/handling is superb. Pick-up is average for a 4cyl. Braking is good for a sports car. No major repairs on this car. Styling is a head-turner/eye-catcher. Interior is well designed. Should of been a 2-seater. Trunk is spacious. Gas mileage is rated 22C/30H. I get 21mpg on average. Since i bought the car used, had to get the spoiler repainted andthe hood struts replaced. cost was $250 altogether. Love my car!!

Tiburon — It's accelerations is very good, braking is not bad, and handling is more on the understeering side when making super sharp turns, the build is good and has an awesome appearance. the mileage for the car is average. And this car is fun to drive.

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