2003 Hyundai Tiburon V6 from North America
A high performance value
Cabin noise can be a little loud at times.
This car is a screamer. It handles great and gets lots of looks. I recently read a comment concerning this vehicle and highly disagree. The person bought a 4 cylinder instead of the V6. I have a V6 and am completely happy with every aspect of the car. it attracts a lot of attention and the interior is something else. I enjoy driving it more than my wife's Lexus IS300. feels extremely sporty and recommend it to anyone. The only negative I could report is the cabin noise (at times) is loud and the hatchback seems a little heavy when lifted. Otherwise, the car is great value and handles great. I give it a 8.5 out of 10 on a firm rating. Oh, you will get a lot of offers to race at red lights, if you know what I mean. My shark (Tiburon) has completely embarrassed a lot of Honda-, and other wanna be sports cars.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

To whomever made the last comment on the Preludes and the Civic Si's would smoke the Tiburon: I'm sorry man, but you are way wrong! My older brother has a 97 Prelude SH, which is the top Prelude they make - H-22 motor and V-Tech. And, he had a cold air intake and exhaust and my `03 Tiburon was bone stock. And my car smoked him. Last week I raced a `97 Talon with a turbo, and I pulled hard on that also. So what I am trying to say is, if you don't know much about a car, you shouldn't dis on it. Also the only car that has beaten mine thus far (just the ones ive'd raced) was a Civic - but it did have NOS.
