Sport Car Look And Feel Without The Cost — The Tiburon prove to be a wonderful driving car with a lot of power. Very easy to handle, especially with the 6 speed manual transmission. I liked the solid ride that the car provides. Easy access getting in and out. The car is tightly sealed and provides for a quite ride.

Pros

Sporty car for that one person that like speed, reliability and a compact car.

Cons

not good if you want to haul more than 3 people comfortably.

Fun And Sporty — It is a small vehicle, made for speed and also to look good while flying down the highway. it handles nice and breaks when you want it to. has a very decent pick up and go for the size of engine. the only downfall to the car is the interior size of it. not that roomy in the back for tall people, even thought the front has enough room for anyone. price rage is usually affordable.

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

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

It has lots of power, and hugs the road. No blind spots, comfortable seating, and class.

Cons

I'm not sure I like shifting gears. Its pretty noisy in the cab.But, the sound system can certainly drown that out. lol

Its A Beauty — I like almost everything about this car. It has everything I could've wanted about 30 years ago. The styling makes it look like a ferrari. So cool to get all those looks and comments. I feel like a kid again driving it. If I were 20, I'd wouldn't sell this till I was 40.

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!

I Love My Car :) — My car handles pretty awesome, has a decent amount of torque for a 4 cyl, looks pretty good with my new grill and rims, but needs more horsepower its pretty slow....and also needs to turn into an aston martin vanquish over night.

Cons

the stock clutch and flywheel suck

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

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).
