Advice: go to the dealer and just say YES!!!!This is the car! I often wondered why someone didn't come up with a quality sportscar that was also affordable, Hyundai DID IT!!! It has everything that I dreamed of in a car and more! The cool thing is that there are few on the road, and everyone turns to look when you drive by. I started out to buy a 2006 Mustang, droped by a dealer just to look at the Tib, and bought it and drove it home that very same day. The Mustang GT, though more powerful, paled in comarison to the sleek, agile and quality car that the 06 SE Tib is. If you want a big back seat, GET AN SUV.
Pros: the racing look inside and the great look on the outside (Its freakin hot!)
Cons: the back seat room
Advice: go for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I recently bought in july of 2005 a 2001 pontiac grand am gt and i loved it, but the second that i saw the 2005 tiburon se I traded my grand am gt in after two months of owning it and bought my brand new 2005 hyundia tiburon. it is now january of 2006 and i got to tell you that owning the car is just as great as it looks. everywhere i go somone comments on what kind of car it is and they always say hey nice car! you will not regret buying this car, if you have any question about this car and maybe thinking about buying one write me an email Tibbin518@adelphia.net
Pros: Power, Styling, Features, Price
Cons: Milage if you don't watch yourself
Advice: Compare it to anything else in its class, it wins hands downI love this car!! I test drove one back in May of 2005 and knew it was the car for me IMMEDIATELY! I bought my '05 GT in October and it's the best decision I could have made. Don't let the 'Fast n Furious' wanna-be's tell you different, this car has power! Get a manual transmission and you'll absolutely love it. Great acceleration, stiff chassis, great handling and best of all IT LOOKS FANTASTIC! It turns heads and gets compliments like you can't believe. More bang for the buck than anything else on the road.
Pros: sound system
Cons: i love it all
Advice: great car/ go for it.plan on getting myself onegreat looks and handling
Pros: Good Looks - High End performance
Cons: Hard to get into
Advice: Get the V6 if you want more low end torque, Get Manual TransmissionI have the 2.0 Liter 4 cyl. I like the value of this car. You get a lot of standard features for the money. This is not a torque car, you have to rev it to about 2000 RPM to get of the line well in first gear. However, this is the first car I have owned that went 120+ MPH. For a 4 cyl, that is excellent !! The power band seems to be between 3000 and 4500 rpm (60-85 MPH). Once in 5th gear it will climb to 80 quickly and not want to slow down. The handling is very quick, corners rated at 40 can be taken at 65 - 70 MPH. I would say this is an entry level sports car for the casual driver.... enjoy...
Pros: 6 speed transmission
Cons: bad in the snow
Advice: Get the V6 version. This car is too heavy for the lower 4-banger.I bought my 2003 Tibby GT brand new and drove it off the lot. I have never had a problem with the car. I just hit a little over 35000 miles and have had regular maintenance on my car. I did have a minor steering column problem, but it just a noise issue that was covered under the warranty. I did put new tires on the car, which gave it a less responsive but more comfortable ride. I recommend this car to anyone. For the price/looks/gas/piece of mind you receive from this automobile, it is a sure thing. I'm driving this one into the ground and smiling every time I make a payment.
Pros: 6 speed transmission / beautiful Orange Crush color / excellent warranty
Cons: Less back seat space than I would have liked
Advice: Don't overlook this car. Many standard features that competitors charge extra for.Impressive driving performance, excellent standard features including sun roof, upgraded stereo, leather interior. The SE model offers the high body fin that makes it stand out from the GT models.
