by Happy AZ Customer! on Jul 17, 2008 Vehicle: 1998 Hyundai Tiburon FX 2dr Hatchback
I'm a hardcore VW car lover, but with my insurance doubling when I moved from MI to AZ on my VW I decided I needed a new car. I wanted to buy something cheap just to hold me over until I found my real car. I was pretty shocked how much I like this car. The gas mileage is great (like 28 more or less depending on friskiness at wheel) but it has enough pep to beat any automatic with gusto and has withstood the hot AZ temps with no problems. Interior sucks, but that is probably from my climate. We're at 127000 and going strong!

I bought this vehicle in 1998(new).
Have 124,000 miles now and its so good
as new. Nice performance, good ride and
stability.First one was a Scoupe LS and
loved it but this one Tiburon FX love
it more. I think that Hyundai Company
are making a very noticeable change in
the quality and theyre proving that
they know how to built a good machine.
*People doesn't know, but I saw a
review years ago, and to my surprise I
didnt know that the best or one of the
best engines of Mitsubishi was the
Precis Turbo, made by Hyundai. To keep
a car in good shape, no matter the
brand, give a good maintenance. Thats
the life of a car.

This is one fun automobile to drive! I
have had very few problems (minor
things) and very much enjoyment.
As always Hyundai loads their cars with
extra features at no cost.
The handling is great even in excess of
130 mph. The braking is incredible also.
I can't say enough about this car.

Ihave to admit, I have been happy in
the past with other Hyundai models but
this one really surprises me. It has
been a fun, reliable, comfortable,
economical and flexible car to live
with. It's driving characteristics
remind me of much more expensive
vehicules. It has been very reliable
with minimal maintenance required, and
given it's lift back configuration, I
am able to cary large cargo when the
need arises. It is enjoybale ot drive
on short trips given it's road grip yet
comfortable to drive on longer trips
give it's fully independent suspension.
I am not saying I would take my car over a Tiburon GTV6, but in terms of performance it is better. Howevr the clutch and shifting action in the Tiburon is much better than any Ford, including my Cont...
Our 01 Tiburon(purchased in June 01, traded in for our 04 sonata in sept 04, due to tranny was nearly dead, and would have been over 3,000 dollars to replace @103,000 miles) was smaller than today's T...
