    Excellent Sport Car — Two doors become inconvenient for family. Is pretty easy to maintain, especially if you like to do the work yourself, this is a car for that. Parts are not expensive and they can be find in any auto parts by request.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Very full efficient, strong stability, imaging your driving a BMW.

    Cons: No good for family

    Amazing — I love everything about this car personally, i have had one for 3 years and it's never had any problems. Unique car that not too many people have, which i love. Everyone knows it's me when i'm driving around in town.

    Pros: Great looking car, never had a single problem with it.  Angle eye headlights look amazing on  this car.

    Cons: The only con would be that it is a small car, so if you're a larger person that would the only problem.

    An Exciting Car To Drive That Seems To Get Alot Of Questions. — I removed the hyundai emblems, now the car gets a lot of looks and questions, "nice car, who makes it?" Good gas mileage with plenty of pep and speed. Very reliable and fun to drive. At 47.9k original one owner miles, it is averaging between 20-22 mpg city/work. Plan on keeping it for some time.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Sporty and fun to drive, ample horsepower and better than listed fuel economy. Owned since new and no major issues or maintenance. 47.9k original miles, this ride the shark is a joy to drive. Averaging 20-22 mpg city.

    Cons: No back seat room, especially when driver is tall. Not really a car for a big or tall (over 6'2") person.

    Shark — fun car with lots of possibilitys, im going with a tuscani conversion right now to put the 2.7 supercharged elisa motor in. The gas mileage is great for now until the new motor is put in then it will drop to about 17 mpg, for a fun factor i give it high scores its a blast to drive has enough power an handles amazing, with being light in the rear the car has a nice slide curve to it when hitting corners hard i wanna put in new tuscani front an rear sway bars and a top mount strut tower bar to see if that stiffens it up a little more

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

    Pros: its fun to drive an looks very aggressive compared to the prior body styles

    Cons: havent found anything yet except that it doesnt have a turbo option from the factory but that changed when the genisis came out with the 2.0t model

    Pretty & Peppy — Hyundai's come a long way. I was looking for a stylish, sporty car with a peppy engine with reasonable gas mileage & found it @ Hyundai. I went with the 4 cylinder turbo & it has just the right amount of zip. The sleek styling turns heads & I've been asked several times who the manufacturer of my car is. I love my Tiburon! It's an absolute joy to drive.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The styling, zip & price.

    Cons: The value depreciation.

    It Is A Great Car Overall, The Value Once Its Off The Lot Is Really Really Bad. — This car is a great car to own. The MPG's is a little low, but with a SRI and a glass pack exhaust, they will rise drematically. The apperance of the exterior is a little wierd. I dont really like the head light design. The interior styling is confusing. If all stock accent lights are blue, why is the rest of the interior red? Makes no since. This is a very fun car to drive, 140 mph, not enough road to keep going.

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

    Pros: Its a very fun car to drive

    Cons: value.

    Affordable Beginner's Sports Car — Great car. It is pretty quick with 172 hp out of a 2.7L V6 and FWD. It has no rattles or major dents. The interior is all black and dark blue exterior. The gas mileage isn't great but it is a load of fun to drive especially with the shiftronic option.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun to drive

    Cons: gas mileage
