2003 Hyundai Tiburon SE 2.0L I4 from North America
Beauty and the Beast
Nothing has really gone "wrong" with the car so far. The only thing I can say bad about it is that it isn't as performance oriented as some of its sport compact counter parts. The intake and exhaust has been designed with noise reduction in mind and requires some modification to see the cars full potential.
I have driven a number of foreign imports and, though it's a bit slower than most, the Tiburon is the most fun to drive.
It corners like it's on rails with minimal body roll.
The aftermarket performance parts market is starting to pick up and numerous products are becoming available to the average tuner.
While a completely stock Tiburon may not be the fastest car off the lot, it is by far one of the best looking. You will get complimented on this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
