1998 Hyundai Tiburon FX 2dr Hatchback


Review

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!


Best Features

Stickshift, leather, simple center, short quicky body.


Worst Features

Interior sucks, seats easily tear without proper care.

Review

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.


Best Features

Style, stability.


Worst Features

It would be nice that the Hyundai Company make a racing products line like toyota and theyre TRD, so that way you can improve the car without having problems with the warranty.

Review

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.


Best Features

Superior cornering. Beautiful styling.


Worst Features

Could use a litlle more horse power. Couldn't get it much over 130 ph lol

Review

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.


Best Features

Handling, looks, reliability.


Worst Features

Improved powere (Addressed with the 2003 version - V6 engine).
