Love my Tiburon
I have been extremely happy with my Tiburon. The gas mileage has been great, as I make frequent road trips in my car. It is sleek and stylish, without being super expensive. The Hyundai warranty has been great for the few issues that came up. Overall it has held up well, with minimal maintenance. I have had it for almost ten years with few problems.
Fun car to drive, great car to own
My Hyundai Tiburon GT 2006 came with a 191HP V6 engine, 17" rims, and a dual exhaust. I left the transmission as manual 5 speed. I like that the car a still reasonably comfortable considering how low to the ground it is. After 84,000 miles it still drives well and can still push if I need a quick burst of speed. I love the leather bolstered interior and red cloth sport seats. Only real dislike is that the interior door handles are not very sturdy. Driver side handle broke, also the glove box handle hasn't worked right in years. The headlights developed interior haze near impossible to fix without replacing entire assembly.
I bought it as a salvage used title so some things were already wrong with it; I don't know exactly how well the car normally actually works. When I got the car, the radio and speakers didn't work. The car also comes with low profile tires so the car has problems driving on any road that is not dry, like on snow or large amounts of rain. For my first car it has been alright, it gets me one place to another fine. Sadly the A/C doesn't work if the car heat is past the middle on the dial on the dashboard. I had my radio and speakers fixed and randomly my radio stopped working again and ate all my CDs, it had a 6 CD changer and now I'm out of all those CDs I had. My cigarette lighter doesn't work either so no use in trying to charge a phone or something. Black interior is the worst when living in a really hot state. Changing lights and tires on the car is super complicated. The lights are almost impossible to work on; I had to break pieces of my car to replace a brake light. It's like they built it so you have to bring it back to a dealership to get it fixed. The sun roof doesn't work either. The car's speed and acceleration are great, though.
