    Overall 1-10. I Would Give It An 8 Out Of 10 For The Cost As Far As Fun And Styling. —

    I bought mine used with 14K on it and have since doubled that. Road trips AL-AZ & AL-AR and back. Averaged almost 30mpg setting the cruise ctl-highest was 35mpg pushing most states speed limits. (West Texas is 80mpg-they told me to slow down); even while running the AC. The front wheel drive sticks to the road as we drove through Memphis during their extreme rain. No you would not want to drive through a foot of water for a very long time but the occasional pools the car stuck to the road and "swam" through thanks to the sticky FWD and the car's ability to throw away the water from the fenders. Does the name mean "shark" in some language? The 6-spd manual does take some getting used to and the true transfer of power to the road does not really appear in feel and output to the speedometer until you hit about 3500 rpm. No you will probably not win a race off the light at first but once you get this car rolling and up to "speed" I think it would run forever. Outside of gas/oil changes I have put nothing into the car-except paying for XM radio. Overall a generally fun to car to drive on the road either or to work. Want more save up and buy a new Audi/Lambo provided you can afford the insurance.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Styling, you could get pulled over even while parked!

    Cons: Excessive road noise on rough road surfaces and the seating could be more comfortable for those longer road trips.  Put your wallet in the console if you will be sitting in the driver's seat for more than an hour.

    I Love This Car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! — This car has an absolutely perfect performance; it's pretty solid, and not likely to break down; it has a VERY cozy interior, with a smooth good-looking exterior; it doesn't cost that much to maintain, either. I love to drive it, especially down the highway where I can punch it lol.

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

    Pros: Great performance; Good build; Looks awesome.

    Cons: Nothing.

    Hyundai Tiburon — I love this car! The gears call for a shift a little too quick but that's all good! It has a great speaker system but doesnt have an AUX input on it for an ipod. It also has very thin tires when you buy it... lol

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Looks, feel, Interior

    Cons: No AUX input on stereo

    Good Car But Not For 30k+ More Or Less Around 20k Would Have Sufficed — breaking is weak considering the GS has no ABS or ETC understandable the 5spd shifts smoothly with the exeptopn of 2nd gear bit of grind, handling could be tighter in 60km corners, but overall aceleration is smooth and hard. would have loved to see a turbo model make it to the floor, 36k was the price tage with everything, $40 to filler at $1.00 a ltr, that and the lack of 138bhp and a 130whp with a 8hp rob on the belt system

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: its fun smooth and comes with a smile

    Cons: lack of power with such a sporty car only 138bhp to the wheels

    2008 Hyundai Tiburon Se, 6 Speed Manual — It is fast, sexy, and silver! Did I say fast?? And stealth... now you see me, now you don't! ABS breaking takes a little getting used to, but the ESC is sweet! The 2008 version has the new body type which is nice.... not bad on gas, covered on maintenance.

    Pros: silver, sexy, fast, and loud!

    Cons: None baby!

    Hyundai Tib — I love my 2008 Hyundai Tiburon. Its only a 4 cylinder, but it definately has get up and go. For 07-08 the front end was redesigned and so I think it looks real sleak. It looks more like a high end car. The build quality is fantastic and it is just an overall great car for the price.

    Pros: Great looks, Fuel economy, build quality

    Cons: Could be a bit faster, but it IS a 4 cylinder

    Hyundai Tiburon — This is a great car, its comfortable, great to drive, and has an amazing stereo. Performance is ample, however I would not recommend the automatic transmission, it lags a bit on the shifting especially when trying to use the tiptronic part of the transmission. However the looks of this car are stunning.

    Pros: Stunning looks, classy interior, amazing stereo

    Cons: Lacking a bit of power, automatic tranny is less then expected

    Great Car To Have — I love my new car, its pretty fast, it handles well and the exhaust has an aggressive note to it. i love the styling and it is very fun to drive it. it's packed with a 2.7L v6 cranking out about 172 HP and all that power is passed through a 6 speed manual transmission. comes stock with 17 in. alloy wheels and wrapped in 215/45 R17 tires.

    Pros: Performance, style, and audio

    Cons: none
