General Comments:

I love the car!

Great looks, I've gotten compliments since day 1 & still do.

Fun to drive - when I first bought the car, I would find myself taking the long way home, just to enjoy the car more.

Handles very well (particularly the SE with the "track-tuned" suspension).

Lacking a little on power, but the 6-speed manual makes up quite a bit for that.

Summary:

Best buy for an economy sport coupe!

Faults:

TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) light comes on even if tires are all aired up.

General Comments:

After 10 months and 11,0000 miles this car is still a blast to drive. The smooth V6 power, the torque, the handling, the brakes, the seats, high speed stability, the warranty, the car looks and feels like a high dollar sports car. However one of the downsides of most sport cars is the rough ride on bad pavement.

How does this car really compare to your previous car, which as you stated was a corvette.

I don't think that comparing this vehicle to a Corvette is a fair comparison, that is, unless you want to trade in your Corvette for a Hyundai product, which has a superior warranty and better build quality.

The Tiburon a credible statement that a quick, sporty, eye-catching automobile doesn't have to break the bank in order to get one. As you can tell, I am a Hyundai/Kia fan (5 new 2007 models in our family).

Back to the comparison... The Corvette is brutally fast and eye-catching as well, but there are considerations to factor - (1) American build quality (2) Price (3) Fuel Consumption (4) Insurance (5) Depreciation opposed to initial cost - OK, the Hyundai Tiburon depreciates quickly too, but it costs less than half of the Corvette. All in all, people want the flash and go of a sport coupe, but rarely legally get to exercise the vehicles power potential. The Tiburon is a fine example of looks, build quality, amenities, and low price.
