Pros: "Reliability, fun, interior and exterior design"

Cons: "Best for 5'11" and under. Subpar gas mileage."

"Best car I've ever owned (22 years of driving). Not only is it a fun car to drive (as long as you're small enough to be comfortable in it), but through 141,000 miles I've had little-to-no trouble with it and it's still running great. I hope to keep it another 2-3 years, at least. The most serious surprise servicing I've had done is to replace a faulty fuel sensor at about 80,000 miles. Other than that, just normal wear-and-tear replacement parts like brake rotors and such."

As close to a Ferrari passenger car as you can get

"The tiburon is a gem. Handles like a true sports car. Quick, stable, marvelous in turns. 6 speed transmission is really tough and solid. Very comfortable, I am 6'3' and have plenty of room. It looks very much like a Ferrari 456 GT and it is as close to a really good sports car as you can get without spending tens of thousands. It is an outstanding car. Reliable, durable, and stylish."

"TOOK CARE OF MY CAR FROM THE GETGO, OIL CHANGES, FILTERS, ALL ON TIME. V 6 LOOKS AND SOUNDS GREAT. PEOPLE STILL STOP AND ADMIRE MY "TIBBY". IT HAS 63000 MILES AND I'M GOING TO SELL IT IN 2016 TO A FRIEND WHO WANTS IT. IT WAS A GOOD DEAL IN 2003 BECAUSE THE CAR CAME LOADED, ALL AS ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT, NO EXTRAS ON THE V 6. AUTOMATIC, ALL LEATHER, MORE SPEAKERS, SUN ROOF,BIGGER TIRES, DELUXE WHEELS, BETTER RADIO."

Pros: "good looks, great sporty feel for the price range"

Cons: "sits low - but it's a sports car!"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I wish I could keep this car longer in spite of its age, but my age is the problem - it's low to the ground, becoming harder for me to get in and out of. I just can't find another car in my price range that has the curvy styling I like, but I'll have to make some compromise. I also really like its handling - I feel safe taking curves a little on the edge. And when it's fresh-washed and shiny, people still think it looks new."

Pros: "GREAT PRICE (18,380.00) and so much fun to drive"

Cons: "not enough acceleration. Uncomfortable seats."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Planning to drive about 20 years and put about 250,000 miles on it. VERY reliable!! At about 120,000 miles does NOT use a drop of oil between (2500), oil changes! Will be taking it on a 2,000 miles vacation trip in about a month. There are 2 things I would wish for in this car. A little more power for acceleration (turbo), and a more comfortable front seat. But still planning to keep it until "the wheels fall off"."

"I've had this car for 6 years now, and I have absolutely loved it. It gets good gas mileage, runs well, and it is very good in the snow (especially with snow tires). It's a good looking car, and it is very affordable."
