Overall pleased with my Hyundai tiburon.

2008 Hyundai Tiburon GT

The front two seats sit low to the floor, so your legs stretch out in front of you. I am short, so it is perfect for me, but it is a small car for someone over 5'5. My taller friends have trouble being comfortable in the front, but especially have a hard time fitting in the backseat. I love the hatchback, and the ability to switch from an automatic to a manual is fun. I do not use the manual very often though, since there's no clutch. I honestly haven't had any mechanical issues with the car since I got it over a year ago. It is got plenty of get-up-and-go, with the v6 engine, and has a beautiful deep purr. The clear coat is starting to peel off, so that may be an issue with this model, but I haven't researched to see if other people have reported that problem.

2008 Hyundai Tiburon GT: end of the line

2008 Hyundai Tiburon GT

My 2008 Hyundai Tiburon GT has been a solid vehicle. With Black-pearl paint and 17' premium Hyundai wheels, this is only some of the fine perks. 4 spd: Automatic/manual transmission aka*slapshift! V6 provides the power to have fun on mountain roads, interstate travel and daring curvy roads. Overall it looks faster than what it can actually do, brakes are fantastic, automatic sunroof switch can be sticky. Door handles are poor and I have experienced problems from both inside and out. Horrible. Other than that, a fun and affordable sports car.

2008 Hyundai tiburon, super roomy, fuel efficient, and very comfortable.

2008 Hyundai Tiburon GT

My 2008 Hyundai tiburon is the most amazing car I've owned. It gets great gas mileage so I never spend too much on gas. The sunroof is perfect for summer days and it surprisingly roomy inside, perfect for those long car rides. I've used it to move furniture before as well, you can fit an entire futon mattress in the back.

Review of obsidian black tiburon

2008 Hyundai Tiburon GT

The tiburon is surprisingly reliable. I have had no problems with it other than cracked leather in the driver's seat but that is to be expected after all the years of use. Other than that all that has gone wrong is an alarm system that was installed via aftermarket that caused the door to jam

It's absolutely Amazing on gas mileage

2008 Hyundai Tiburon GT

After 5 years I've noticed some minor electrical issues but other than that I haven't really had any problems with the vehicle. Besides the car alarm system seems to be very hard to work with without a key fob. Make sure you have a key fob to disarm the alarm
