    Boss — Beautiful, that's the best way to describe my car. Moonlit blue, fully loaded with a 440 watt ten inch sub, 6 disc/cassette, Auto A/C, black leather with red stitching, I could keep going... I got it brand new (32 miles on the odometer) listed at $23,000. It was supposed to get 19 city and 26 highway mpg, (the best I've gotten was 25, and I won't say the worst haha) I've never had to do any mantainance other than regular oil and filter changes, 6 month tire rotations, and a few upgrades. -$1200 18" MKW Chrome M71 Wheels -$900 225/40/18 BF Goodrich KDW Performance tires -$350 AEM Cold Air Intake System Painted brake calipers, matallic "Tiburon" SE Foot rest/accelerator/brake pedals, chrome "Tiburon" liscense plate frame, bright white head/fog lights. I wouldn't trade my Tiburon for any new car out there under $50,000, and I not just saying that because I cannot aford one... i just like my tib that freakn much son haha

    Pros: Great looking, lots of aftermarket parts, reliable, 100,000 mile powertrain warrenty

    Cons: Needs more power

    Great — What I like about this car it's its turbo engine, so powerful and it makes me look cool and young. It doesn't cost that much for gas usage. But the only thing I dislike about it is that it's too little for the whole family to fit in. Also i feel comfortable driving my new born in it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: I love this car so much, it runs good and I wouldn't sell it if my status didn't change.

    Cons: It's little for a big family to fit in.

    Tiburon — For a first car it really did me justice. I'm 19 and have had it for 3 years. It has not a single time broke down on me. Other than the usual tune ups (break pads, oil, rotors) I have had no serious repairs needed. The exhaust note is nice and deep and i always receive complements on the looks and sound. Its not seriously fast but for the cost it does its job. The only true thing that i can think of over the years that was annoying was the fact that there is virtually no room in the back for friends etc. For a first car to cruise around town with its seriously great.

    Pros: Extremely reliable, Very low maintenance, sporty/stylish design, great exhaust note.

    Cons: Little to no room in the back for passengers.

    2005 Hyundai Tiburon SE Review
    says:
    I loved my SE! It was fast and sexy! It was all so tough. It survived a flood and a spin out and flying down a hill after hitting ice with minimal damage. The only constant battle was the electrical issues from the start that couldnt be fixed and required many wiring bypasses and the AC that even the dealer was at a loss on fixing, other than saying we could try to replace the whole unit with a new one.... repairs could be expensive but gas mileage was amazing. But even with the problems and massive blind spots, I still miss my brat car and would definitely buy another one!!!

    Power Ranked 2014 Ford Fusion worse.
    "My SE was a V6 manual. My Fusion is a 4 cylinder automatic. There is no way for the Fusion to complete in power. "
    Handling Ranked 2014 Ford Fusion worse.
    "They both handle very well. The only difference is how the SE would hug sharp curves better. "
    Looks/Style Ranked 2014 Ford Fusion worse.
    "Both cars are sharp looking. The SE was a wow sexy and a cop magnet haha. The Fusion is more of a classy sexy. "
    Front Seats Ranked 2014 Ford Fusion worse.
    "Both are very good but the lumbar support was a little better on the SE and the headrest wasnt a bother. "
    Back Seats Ranked 2014 Ford Fusion better.
    "In the SE anyone over 4ft tall had no leg space and would hit there head constantly. In the Fusion the back seat has plenty of space for passengers of all sizes!"
    Family Car Ranked 2014 Ford Fusion better.
    "The Fusion is definitely a family car. My SE was pretty much a two seater car that pretended to have four seats!"
    Would Buy Ranked 2014 Ford Fusion worse.
    "I did own the SE and now own the Fusion so apparently Id Buy both but I had to pick one or the other. "

    I love the handling of the Tiburon, but it does have a rough ride because of the tight suspension.
