Love It!
By Jeff W on 10/27/05 20:07 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2005 Hyundai Tiburon GT 2dr Hatchback (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

Review

I was originally looking at a more expensive sports car, but found that they weren't very comfortable. The Tiburon was different. While not a Mercedes sedan, I found that I'm comfortable driving it (By the way, I'm 6'3" and 275 lbs). It's also the best buy around for the cost.

Super Car! (just avoid the dealer!)

Review

Test drove both the RX-8 and the '05 Mustang. MUCH more room inside than the Mustang, cool sporty looks like the RX- 8, better Warranty than both! Better value than both RX-8 or Mustang! I wager I get more questions about what kinda car the Tiburon is than I would driving an "everyone-knows-car" mustang (ho-hum) and the RX-8 which resembles most of the other Mazada models... Want a head-turner for low cost? This is the one you've been looking for!

Review

first attracted by the styling (look at the maserati gran coupe). after first drive, impressed by the performance (better than my fiat 850 spyder, datsun 2000, datsun 240Z, or mustang gt).

chose tiburon over a BMW

2005 Hyundai Tiburon GT 2dr Hatchback (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

Review

this car is extremely beautiful. i get asked at least 3 times a week what kind of car it is, and no one believes its a hyundai. the exterior lines and styling are PERFECT. this car looks like an expensive italian import. interior is roomier than competition and the seats are very supportive. steering/handling is unbelievably good. in these times of high gas prices, i love buying 87 and getting the great economy out of this car.

Dream Machine

Review

I went from an Infiniti, G35 to this swift, economical, and affordable vehicle. I wasn't sure it was the right decision at first because, in this society, we always worry about what other people think. Furthermore, going from one extreme vehicle to the other was dramatic. But I'm proud of my cute, fancy machine. It's sturdy, does good on gas, and is fun to cruise and drive. I get the fun I want for over 15,000 dollars less in cost. I would recommend this car to anyone that wants the power, excitement and fun of this vehicle. Oh, leave the kids at home! Don't let the Hyndai name push you away. They've made tremendous improvements and are ranked third least

I love my Tib!

Vehicle

2005 Hyundai Tiburon GS 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I've owned a Ford Mustang LX 5.0 & an Acura Integra GS-R in the past, & this car is just as fun & handles just as well. It could use more pick up/power, but that's my fault for not spending the extra $ to buy the V6. Too bad I had such a horrible experience w/the Hyundai dealer not honoring the lemon law on a used Acura Integra LS they sold me before I bought the Tib.

Best For The $$$

2005 Hyundai Tiburon GT 2dr Hatchback (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

Review

IMHO - this is an awesome car for the price. Quick, fun to drive, and comfortable. Poor gas milage, but all GT type sports coupes, even the infamous Ford Mustang, are like this. The Tiburon is much more comfortable than the Mustang.

DON'T DO IT!!

Vehicle

2005 Hyundai Tiburon GT 2dr Hatchback (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

Review

There's no denying that this car is one of the most beautiful in it's class. However, I was unfortunate enough to ignore the warnings and went with this car. The paint is trash. Look at it wrong and it chips. About 4 months ago I started having problems with the car starting which is a CLASSIC HYUNDAI PROBLEM. It's all over the internet, have a look!!! At stop signs the a/c, radio, and lights will go off until you start driving again and it never quite starts right away (if it starts at all). The seats are hard that the moonroof has been repaired THREE times already. I have heard that there are defective parts in the 'brain' that no one admits to.
