Clean And Clear — This tiburon is the best car I have owned since i have been driving. handling is great a bit costly on the maintenance brakes and tires seem to go through them quickly but the car is the best so far i have owned, want to keep this one for a while

Pros

This car mechanically is extremely reliable!  It drives with smooth, fun, power.  Great sporty car and fuel efficient!

Cons

It does need to be painted on one side and the clutch on the AC needs to be replaced, which is only $150 (part and labor)  Other than that its pretty super!

Fun — I think this car is great for people that want a sporty looking car without the price tag. It has a lot of options to make your own. Its a standard so it saves on gas! This is a great car for beginners or someone that just would like to save on gas!

Fun Car With A Good Level Of Tq — power from a dig is pretty good not much at the top end so it a pretty torquey car. can handle turns very well. and brakes are pretty good better than most. build quality is pretty good not to cheap looking very comfy car to drive as far as the looks... the car is pretty dang sexy at least to me fun factor if you have only owned cars with less than 140hp then the car should be pretty fun

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

Good Price For What You Get. — The sportiness of this car definitely is a plus because even though it's stock and only pushing about 180 hp, it's still fun to drive. And from what i've seen from some of my buddies tibs, a dual exhaust looks and sounds mean. With just a few upgrades, this car could please almost any car enthusiast.

'06 Stormin' Tiburon — I handles well on most all road conditions including most all winter weather. Very good fuel economy for a mid-range V6. Likes to be driven through lots of "curves", very fun through the mountains, on the open road and even around town (love to "zippy" through those traffic circles).

This Is What Hyundai Wanted To Acchieve When They Created A Coupe From The Sonata — This is a sports coupe and should be treated as that. Any extras adds weight and influences it's delicate power to weight ratio. This car is definitely NOT something you borrow to your teenager son to "take it for a spin".

Pros

Super comfortable seats, nice ride for a sport suspension, really grips the road. A surprising amount of storage space because the rear seats fold down. Great sound system.

Cons

A few big holes in blind spots, can be remedied by setting your side mirrors to cover those spots. Stock dual exhaust is nice but the sound could be better.

Love It! Best Car For A Sporty Front Wheel Drive — I love this car! Got it for $16k with 10k miles on it used. I love the tight suspension and it drives really well in curves and accelerating. This is definitely a peppy and fun car to drive. It is not a luxury car, it is a sporty car. Don't expect to be cruising around like a town car or a boat, it is FUN to drive. So wish it was rear wheel drive!

Its An Awesome Little Car — Awesome car! The appearance is sweet. The performance is good but im sure the gt would be better but for a 4 speed v6 is can hold its own. The build quality is decent for a foreign car but we will c how well it does comes winter. The cost is extremely good depending on how many mileage it has on it. Mine had 45k and cost 11067 which made my monthly around 160 so I say that's pretty awesome
