    A Girl Can Dream... — The only time I've ever had this car in the shop is for basic maintenance & upkeep, it has never once let me down! Even after I got into a head on collision, my car still ran & was drivable. This is the only car I've ever owned that I actually love & will ever want to drive. I still have yet to find a newer vehicle that even compares to the Tiburon.

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

    Pros: This car has sex appeal and a V6 engine to back it up. It is reliable , beautiful and truly the car of my dreams.

    Cons: Not very comfortable seats, not a family car! And it's a one unit body, which really sucks since the only reason I replaced this car was that the bottom completely rusted out to the point where it is not safe to drive.

    Wannabe Speed Demon — Eh, its a nice car that is fairly cheap and still very fast for its time even though its low on horsepower, it can still pick up speed rather rapidly from 40 to 120 or when in traffic from 60 to 120 rather quick.

    Pros: Very quick on the pedal, good looking and fair gas mileage for a 2 door sports car.

    Cons: Back seats are useless. Trunk can hit the head of whom is in the back.

    Awesome, Fun, But Has Its Downsides — The 2005 year was refresh year for the Tiburon and in my opinion the minimum year anyone should have, The new headlights, taillights and interior are must haves. The car is a bit underpowered in stock form. I have added performance spark plugs and wires, an Injen Cold Air Intake, a Magnaflow HiFlow Cat, and a Borla Catback exhaust and it seems to be the right amount of power now. I have upgraded the brakes so it is much better at stoping but not a problem stock, build quality is much improved and very nice, Cost of ownership is low, and this car is a blast to drive!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The looks, the sound, the stereo.

    Cons: Gas mileage, back seats are too small, the overall weight.

    Affordable — Steering/handling is superb. Pick-up is average for a 4cyl. Braking is good for a sports car. No major repairs on this car. Styling is a head-turner/eye-catcher. Interior is well designed. Should of been a 2-seater. Trunk is spacious. Gas mileage is rated 22C/30H. I get 21mpg on average. Since i bought the car used, had to get the spoiler repainted andthe hood struts replaced. cost was $250 altogether. Love my car!!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Sporty, sexy lookin car

    Cons: Insurance

    Hyundai Tiburon Gt V6 — I keep my stuff real clean. I'm getting the lambo doors on soon. And I'm going to get black rims and blacked out tinted windows. It hasn't needed any repairs just oil changes. I'm redoing my interior, I'm going to have red accent lights. Everything all the cloth is going to be black with red lining. I'm going to have red vents pretty much anything that is silver red. I get about 28 miles to the gallon on the GT V6. All my performance is good, good fast car to race.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Nothing
