Good Little Car :-)

I've had my Tibby for almost 2 1/2 years now. Never had a single problem with it. Though I will admit getting a base model might not have been my best choice. The 2.0 manual is fun to drive but lacks the power you would think the car would have if you judged on its looks. Besides that and the lack of interior space this is a great car. It runs great, gets good gas mileage and handles nicely. I get compliments on it everywhere I go. It turns heads. It just makes me feel good. What more could a girl want?

Solid and Fun

The 2008 Hyundai Tiburon SE V6 is one of just a few choices in the midpriced sports coupe segment. It is more affordable, has excellent build quality, and good looks that are muted enough to last and strong enough to get noticed. For a V6, the Tiburon leaves something to be desired in the power department. It does not have the kind of torquey pull you want to feel when you slam on the gas. Downshifting doesn't seem to make a big difference on the high end either. But power is there where and when you need it. Just don't expect it to give you a big thrill. Suspension is RIGID and taking ridges and bumps at an angle will lift one of the corners into the air easily. Nevertheless, Electronic Stability Control keeps the Tiburon pointed straight. The tight body and heavy curb weight gives the car some authority as you cruise down the road, even in a heavy crosswind. Common complaints about the lack of rear seat space... why would you buy a sports coupe? Trunk is small as well but has a wealth of discrete storage compartments. The engine compartment affords plenty of working space for modders and maintenance as does the inside of the center control panel. Projector headlights give a clear cutoff and are easy to aim without any tools. The SE V6 has a dual tip exhaust that gives a tone and hum that rivals higher end racers, subtle enough to be stock, but satisfying on startup. Overall, the Tiburon is plenty fun to drive, feels safe and runs strong. It is not as fast or powerful as other more expensive cars, but it will run and it will last. CONS: It IS small and does not give you a lot of space... but if you're commuting in this car, it shouldn't be a big deal... enough space for the weekly groceries at least. The stock clutch is weak and does seem to want to slip even though it engages just fine. Upgrade with a heavier clutch when its ready for a change.

Excellent car. It was exactly what I was looking for. Good gas mileage, but still quick. Very sporty. Low miles and a great price. I will always use carmax for future vehicle purchases.
