Nice First Car For The Beginner Driver Or Second Car — always loved the first 10 miles driving the car , the bucket seats held you in place as i hugged turns , the thick steering wheel made you feel like you had all of the control of the car at all times. stiff suspension gave it that go cart like drive. which leads to , you dont want to pick up granny or grandpa in the car or take long trips , its a nice small fun car to drive .. i would get another one but probably choose the 6 cyl version for more power.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: sporty , handles well , breaks well , good on gas as a 4cyl ,looks nice feels good to drive

Cons: slower acceleration at higher speeds , road noise , no cup holder , dim headlights

Lfeqlbrm — I love how this engine is easy to turbo and do custom work on. Very spacious engine compartment, metric everything. Bearings are the only part on these cars that seem to go very quickly. Aside from tires maybe :p. The downside is the ECU can only be piggy-backed. No worthwhile ecu mods.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very light and peppy, able to handle a ton of wear and tear. easy to maintain. unique, much like the miata.

Cons: clutch slave has an idiot restrictor,

Good First Car. — Its my first car and I like it because it is a manual tranny and suprises me everytime i drive her. It is lacking in the horsepower department, and I don't want to put the money into her to make her more fun.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its red.

Cons: no horsepower.

. — It's pretty slow, but i it has good handling. It is terrible in the winter. I already had to replace the engine. If u get this car make sure it is a standard because it is terrible as an automatic.

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

Pros: Everyon knows it me when I'm coming down the road.

Cons: It's slow

Gorgeous 2001 Hyundai Tiburon. Five Speed Maunal, Great Gas Mileage. Cheap To Keep. — It gets pretty amazing gas mileage. Its a five-speed manual. I think its kind of gutless though. The inside is clean and the seats look like racing seats, according to Patrick. I just flushed the radiator today, other than that I've just had to keep up the regular maintenance. I love this car, it is amazing. It's a gorgeous car and it is extremely fun to drive.

Pros: Good gas mileage. Pretty.

Cons: Always worried about scratching the paint. It's kind of gutless.

Tiburon Se — Like: great handling, takes corners very well, it's pretty quick off the line, but the brakes need a little work. It's needed so many repairs so far, it's rediculous, I've already put about $2500 into it. The interiour is a little messy, due to my bad cleaning habits, but otherwise in pretty good condition. The exterior was just painted (silver), but still needs work done to the driver side quarter panel. The gas mileage isn't that great right now because I need to replace the O2 sensor. The maintenance on the car is otherwise relatively cheap. This is a pretty fun car to drive overall though. I figured might as well get the whole "sports car" thing out of me now, that way I can move on to something a little more "fun". I would definitely recommend the Tiburon to my friends, it's not like any other Hyundai model, it doesn't break unless you've treated it like garbage (like the previous owner of my car did).

Pros: Fun as hell to drive

Cons: Once one thing breaks, everything starts to go.

Tiburon — this was my favorite car, because it was sporty and it was the first car i had a car payment on. it never gave me any problems and it was an awesome car. it was very small and compact but it had enough room to fit things because it was a hatchback.

Pros: compact, sunroof, sport style dash, ran great

Cons: gas mileage wasn't too great

Stylish — Great car.. More for the ladies, Front wheel drives a turnoff, should have been rear wheel.. Lot of car for the money..Stock rides lousy lots of body eoll, stock exhaust is limiting and 15 inch wheels are out the door..4 wheel disk brakes are a plus and very smooth driving

Pros: style, driveability

Cons: front wheel drive, single exhaust
