About Hyundai Tiburon

Hyundai created a winner with the last year's redesign of its Tiburon sports coupe, which certainly qualifies it for the fun-to-drive description. As part of Hyundai's efforts to update and upgrade most of its current vehicles, the 2008 Tiburon excels in providing the driver with an exhilarating, exuberant ride and the upper-end SE model, in particular, delivers an exceptional package. Three other trim options include the base GS, a refined-performance GT and the more fully-equipped GT Limited.

"So i bought one for my first car loved it and bought a 2008 Se for my second car. I would give this car a 10 all around but in terms of performance I needed a little work. I put about $3000 into mine and I don't regret it at all, I got it up to 350 horse power and love the way it drives. I may even.buy another one when this one hits to many miles. And if anyone has a 2008 SE the parts I would recommend are. 1. Full Injen CatBack Exhaust system ($1000) 2. Injen Cold Air Intake ($300) 3. K&N Racing series Air and Fuel filters ($200) 4. DC Sports Racing Carbon headers ($1000) 5. Tuscani Elisia Engine management Upgrade Mega chip ($570) 6. ECU STR Remap ($0) it doesn't cost anything if you have the reflash monitor but be careful my buddy blew his engine. But good look tibby drivers!"

"This is a great car!! I bought it new and it now has 100,000 miles on it but still runs like a champ!! I have never, I repeat never had to take this car into the shop for anything other than standard maintenance, like oil changes etc.. I can not say enough about this car. it has been reliable and fun to drive and actually does really well in snow/ice and bad weather conditions. Sadly We are considering trading it it in as we need a more roomy vehicle but that is the only reason. It is a stylish fun car that performs, what more can you ask for. Hyundai put together a winner with this vehicle and i would buy another one in a minute if it were possible. If you have bigger kids or ride other people in the car the back seat is pretty small so it will hinder you there, but its a sporty car so that is to be expected. If your considering buying this type of car I say BUY IT, you will not be disappointed!!! Thanks Hyundai for a car that served me soooo well for 5 years and never gave me a minutes trouble!"

"I bought my 2003 Tibby GT in '05 with approximately 30,000 mi on her. Right now she has 129,000. The ONLY thing I have replaced mechanically on this car is the PCM module and the drivers side power window. So easily the most reliable car I have owned. It has the wide body kit and looks awesome..even after all these years people still tell me what a sweet ride it is. Most comfortable seats (leather) I have had in a car. I was debating buying a new car since it is getting older, but after reading reviews of a lot of new cars, makes me think maybe I should stick with my awesome ride. The only bad thing I can say is a given...not great on gas but that is to be expected being a GT. Did I mention how much I LOVE this car??? LOL"
