    Love My Tibby! — The car is the 4 cylinder, but I added a cold air intake and it is pretty quick! The build quality is great and nothing is falling apart or breaking down. It is very affordable to own and I get 29-30mpg on the freeway and about 25 on the city streets. Fun car that gets lots of looks.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: I love the seats and how the car sticks to the road when cornering

    Cons: People laugh because it is made by Hyundai.

    Good Stuff — great car for the money, powerband is awsome, handles well, just a little to basic for my taste. and the aftermarket support isent all that great, mostly just stupid body kits and whatnot. mechanically i havent had any problems, i would deffinatly suggest one.

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

    Pros: fun to drive, good mpg, pretty quick, looks good

    Cons: aftermarket support kinda sucks, basic interior, to much plastic

    7500.00 — love this car fun and fast just 1 minor problem i need to get checked out. The six speed is a blast and the v6 has enough power to play around with very tight in the corners and good acceleration. lots of leg room leather interior and exhaust sounds great

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: sporty and get lots of compliments from people everywhere i go

    Cons: spacing inbetween gears are tight

    Avoid It Like The Plague. — This car was quick, easy to handle and very attractive looking, but had some SERIOUS engineering problems. I had mine a total of 4,000 miles before the entire rotating mass in the transmission was destroyed. Apparently when the engineers at Hyundai designed the transmission, they didn't take into account that when the clutch was completely let out, the clutch was not completely engaged. Finally, when the clutch failed, Hyundai refused to replace it under the factory warranty even though it was a flaw in their transmission that caused the premature failure of the clutch assembly.

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

    Pros: This car is quick and sporty with great body lines.

    Cons: Stay clear from their manual transmission unless you plan to completely replace the stock unit with a high performance system that will actually function properly.

    Average — The Tiburon is a very attractive car. However, the stock Tiburons are garbage when it comes to horsepower. In order to get anywhere near 300 WHP you'll need to spend thousands on forced induction. The car is more for looks, then it is for speed and power.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Reliable

    Cons: Lack of Performance

    Pandora — The Tiburon GT handles very well. I own a manual transmission, so the control is significantly better. The acceleration is great, braking is very controlled, and handling is very good. The car rides quite low and wide, so it corners very well. I've had a few passengers comment on the interior appearance, how the dashboard looks like it belongs on an airplane, and that's what it was intended to look like. I like the interior. The car is supposedly tested at getting 19 mpg city/22 mpg highway, but I've never had it that bad. I average between 25 and 28 mpg, mostly highway, and for one rather long trip, the car averaged 30 (!!!) mpg. That's impressive for a sports car in my book.

    Pros: Handling! I pass cops driving around corners!

    Cons: They screw up the oil filter specs in the auto shops. The filter listed for the 2004 doesn't fit the 2004, I have to use the filter listed for the 2003.
