2008 Hyundai Tiburon FX (GK) 2.0 from Malaysia
Got this test car back home for few days.
Surprisingly it performed good for a Korean car.
Permormance: Score 7
The 2L engine pumps out 141 horses and 19kg torque.
Able to make a run to 100 with in 9.5s.
Easily go to 170-200kmh without hesitation.
However the 4 speed transmission kind of a drawback for the 2008 model.
Nevertheless the sports mode seems to make it up to it.
The Korean tyres are totally useless.
Need to be a good driver to drive it in either wet or dry surface.
Tried a turning at 140km during bad rain.
Able to make it thru (driving in sports mode while semi drifted, however the rear geometry responded well hence make the car back on track).
Would suggest other driver to change to better tyres.
Reliability: Score 8
Nothing wrong and can relay on the entire system: ABS, EBD, EBA & EPS/TCS.
Comfort: Score 7
On nicely pave road, the car handles well.
However it will bounce here and there on uneven surface.
Its typical for sports tuned suspension.
Not bad for a MYR130K coupe.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
