    2008 Hyundai Tiburon GS FWD Review
    Guru5GD5G says:
    Great power to weight ratio and the engine although tiny for the car, puts out enough power for it to match the 06-07 Charger R/Ts. Only complaint comes from the slow acceleration off the line, but it makes up for it after 60mph. Not great for families, but the looks make it turn heads wherever you take it. The storage space in the trunk is large and allows for it to be used as a Grocery getter if needed. This car is a good entry level sports car because of its handling and small wheelbase that allows for even the most inexperienced driver to feel in control and aware of everything within the car. (Not a good first car though!! The power can be too much for a lot of people when they first start driving it)

    Looks/Style Ranked 2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT worse.
    "The Body lines and unique styling make it stand out much more than the Eclipse, even though they are built almost the same."
    Back Seats Ranked 2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT better.
    "The eclipse is a slightly bigger car overall, and allows for just a little bit more headspace and bigger seating for passengers."

    I love my Tiburon! Fun to drive and unique. Its definitely an eye catcher and I frequently gets complemented on it. Ive had no major issues with it in the three years Ive owned it. Ive only had to replace wear items. It was my first ever manual, so itll always be special to me.
