Fun car to drive -- fast pickup and looks good!

Great car, regular maintenance required. Did have an emission issue but otherwise no issues. It is a manual car and get good mileage. I especially enjoy the quick pick up. Not a large backseat so not ideal for families. It is low to the ground so some people might have trouble getting in and out.

Great sporty car with no performance issues.

Have not had any maintenance issues over the ten years I have had my Tiburon. Just standard oil changes, tire rotations, and new tires a couple years ago. My only complaint is the paint has faded / worn on the spoiler in the back and also around the gas cap. No performance issues though.

- Kristin L

It's very reliable comfortable. Not many problems if you keep up on maintenance.

The performance is amazing an Its extremely reliable I haven't had really any issues with it a all but I also keep up in the maintenance of it as well and It's very comfortable I would buy another one if I had to get a new car.
