Stand-out Looks, Predictable Handling And Power That Leaves You Wishing There Was More. — Overall, its a good-looking car. I think the bulbous hood is a bit much and wish they had toned it down a little, but other than that it looks pretty good for a Hyundia. The handling is easy and predictable, while it won't slam you against the doors in a turn, it is easy to find the limit. When the limit is hit, traction loss is smooth and maintainable - with a little late-braking in a corner you can even get the tail to come loose. Power is a bit short, especially in the automatic. There is a good amount of torque early on, though, which makes city driving a bit easier. The powerband is broad and smooth and it has doesn't drop off until just before the 6500 RPM red-line - which makes highway passing easy. With a curb weight of 2500 lbs, the car feels nimble and light... If only it had 30-40 more horse-power, it could have competed with the Integra Type-R and the Celica GT-S.

Pros: Good looks, solid handling.

Cons: A bit short on power.

My Best Car To This Day. —

When I was car hunting last summer, everyone I know said stay away from Korean cars, but when I said "Well what about the Tiburon?" Dad told me I can do what I want, but just don't complain, because I'll have it for three years. The car itself is a great car, considering it's a Hyundai. The car was more or less in decent condition when I bought it. The most expensive part to fix on it so far was the steering rack which was rotted out. The interior is black upholstery and leather (or probably pleather) dash and roof. I have the SE model, which has power steering, locks, windows, and moonroof. The main cluster and middle console looks very futuristic, but most of it is functional. The exterior is in a lesser condition than the exterior for the moment, it needs a paint job, body work and I need to replace the foglight switch. For the winter, I've got Michelin X-Ice tires on her. In the summer, I'll be putting the stock rims back on with the Falken summer tires (don't know which tires they are). She handles pretty well due to the lower height of the car (I recently gotten rid of a Dodge Spirit), performance-wise: pretty good because it's a sports car, but I don't plan on putting any heavy mods on it for insurance reasons. My overall impression of the Tib is that it's a great car, and I would definately recommend it to other drivers. But expect to put some money into it if you get it at a private seller.

Pros: Great handling, looks awesome, and the performance is perfect for me.

Cons: So many things can break on it.

Driving Is Beliving Indeed — I never thought highly of Hyundai and never liked the looks of the 2nd gen tibby till i got to test drive one. The handling,braking and acceleration in the car is pretty good and the top end is decent. The look of the car stuck me as weird and kinda ugly but I have come to like it and get over the annoying bulges in the hood

Pros: looks like nothing else on the road
5spd!
all wheel disc brakes
good on gas
pretty fast
its not a honda
no abs

Cons: 4 headlights
people have a tendency to disrespect hyundai

Great Price, Great Ride, Great Looks It's A Tiburon :) — We both love this car... It comes with power everything including a sunroof which we use all the time. It is amazing on gas which is awsome since gas is up to $1.20 CDN. We love the color cobalt blue. The interior is amazing and very clean the only thing this car doesn't have is leather seats which we dont really want anyway since it is 10 months of winter here.

Pros: Great on gas

Cons: Automatic Transmission (would have prefered standard)but wither way it runs amazing.
