Affordable, sporty and fun car
Source: MSN Autos

...Pros: Great styling, turns heads. Good acceleration and corners well.
It has a good 6 CD player by Infiniti. Good cargo space for a small car when back seats folded down.
Michelin sport tires standard. I have never had any mechanical problems with my Hyundai's.
This is the third one I have owned and the first one had 105,000 miles on it before I had to do anything but routine maintenance.
Cons: I wish the gas mileage was better, but I bought it more for the styling. Overall: Fun car to drive with good acceleration and cornering...

cars is tight

..."i have the 2006 v6 se its amazing car is zippy when you need not very easy to drive slow at times but thats fine with me.
gas mileage isnt sooo bad i get about 25 all around but i didnt but buy car to get good gas mileage.

Good Car

...Pros: Specially, "tight" suspension is impressive to me.
It's a little bit hard, but Handling is so tight. And On-center Steering feel so good.
With this Price, Tiburon is the best. It's a very competitive FF Sports Coupe in the world.
Cons: Good Handling, Impressive Ride.. I think hyundai is very good car-maker.
Why don't they make Rear-drive Car? I wish Next Tiburon will have Rear-drive Mechanism. Overall: It's a very reasonable car in the market of all Sports Coupe...

Best Hyundai You Can Find

...Many aftermarket parts available for this car as well. Low $$$Great Looks...Simply Awesome. Cons: Only Minor complaint is that the backseat leg area is very small. But if you're buying a sports car/coupe you should be expecting that... Overall: The car is very reliable I have not had any problems what so ever with this car. The car definetly gets peoples attention. The body stlying on the 05 is so much more better than any of the earlier and more recent years of the Tiburon. For the options, price and warranty this is one of the best. If you're looking for a car that you want to apply...

"Great handling, great value, great sporty car"

..."Great in the curves. Has a really super passing gear at a 30 mile an hour kickdown...

Very good car for the money!

..."Before I write anything on my car, I wanna state the ratings i gave were based on what i think of the car, in comparison to all the other cars that you can find for what I paid...

Tiburon Owner for One year

...Pros: sporty look, quick accceleration, airbags in seats,
upgraded sound system, moonroof Cons: engine is loud from the inside of the car,
heat from the engine makes inside the car hot as well,
backseat is unsuitable for passengers, inability to check blindspots due to car's configuration, car is very low and, at times, hard to get in and out of.
Overall: This car is great for looks not so great in being functional...

Simply amazing with its few cons.

...Doesn't take sharp turns at higher speeds around 35 or 40 very well. Overall: So basically I've drove this car for a few months. I bought it used with 50k miles on it. It runs great never had a problem with it. However, if you wreck it (like I did) it costs quite a bit of pocket money to get it fixed. (Mine was roughly 2k) I am glad I had the money to get it fixed because I love my car. Something fun about the car though is to tray drift since it's front wheel drive. (If you don't know what that is look it up on youtube.) I drive my car around and everybody loves it. It's a rather rare car so...
