    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!

    Awsome Car — This car is fun to drive and looks awsome, everything is stock on it right now since I just bought it but I am getting some rims for it and neon lights to make it stick out from the other cars.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Nothing

    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

    The Best Car — I love my car it is so fast and controllable in the corners its just amazing. The transmission is so nice it feels like it was made custom for me. This is the best car in its class, clearly. The car is very well made. I hadn't had any problems with it. The exterior is very unique and stylish, the interior is sporty and comfortable the bucket seats hold you down in every corner. it is amazing. My car does great gas mileage it is about 27 in city and 30 or 29 in highway. It is so much fun to drive because its so fast and responsive it is just the best car i have ever driven. I would recommend it to anyone.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: NONE

    Tiburon — Its a nice car. Looks great and goes fast. Worth the money. Performance is great and the stock exhaust is already loud. the cost from the dealership was a little under 20. I waste so much gas because all i want to do is drive the car. I love it.

    Pros: Everything

    I Really Enjoy This Car! — Overall, the car is fun to drive, handles well, has good fuel economy, sounds great, and looks great. Its a great car to just cruise in and all around enjoy. the seats are comfortable and the car has almost no hard plastic surfaces, most are soft touch. The sound system is quite clear and produces high quality sounds. The car is small and you really feel like you are in control of your driving experience.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The Handling is great and it sounds great. There is a surprising amount of trunk space and if you fold the back seats down you can fit almost anything in the trunk. The seats are comfortable and the back seats are good for holding friends or kids (although your friends may feel a bit cramped). Driving it around town is fun and you know you will look good in it.

    Cons: Its not quite as fast as you would want it to be
