1997 Highlights

Loosely based on the 1993 HCD-II concept car, the Tiburon (Spanish for shark) debuts as a budget sport coupe that promises to gobble competitors such as the Toyota Paseo like so much chum.

The best car i have ever had.NO trouble at all.
its a car thats woth the experience with
This car besides me putting a new engine, because of past engine overheating problems has been running very well. I've noticed shaking when reach speeds from 80-90 but could be just my car... But very fun to drive, but you must realize this is a Hyundai which used to be one of the cheapest cars on the road. So far with this car Hyundai put good thoughts in my head about their cars besides the low performance pick up. But I would recomend a cold air intake to at least get the car moving faster than a turtle.. Has a lot of potential tho, just didn't start off with it.
1997 Tiburon FX
The 1997 tiburon FX, is one heck of a little car. The editor throws off on it, well line it up next to a civic or a NA Eclipse(which cost about the same or more) and see what happens. Another great thing about this car is the styling. The car is held back alot by it emission/sound pollution control devices. I have seen real dyno gains of up 15hp just from a cold air intake (the stock intake you couldn't fit a dime in vertically), and 8 just from a catback exhaust system.(with great meintenance this car will go the distance.) Which is awesome unless you want to look like everyone else that drives down the road.
