    My sister has the car and the only problem we have had with it in the past 5 years has been the paint on the fuel door thats all. She has the gt v6 one and it is by no means fast but it moves a lot better then most of the civic's and other little ricer racer cars out there. I cant complain about the car at all. What is your big complaint about the car?

    My wife wanted a Tiburon GT, but I wouldn't let her so she got an Eclipse GT V6 instead. Not a bad car, but it's not good at doing anything well. Still better then what the Tiburon would have been.

    Drive them both and you can tell the difference instantly. Neither one is what I'd call a sports car though. They're both chicks cars. I thought it was odd how the Tiburon feels like your driving a minivan with a really rough ride.

    The fact that it's a v6 and the only thing that it can take out is stock civics.........which are i4.......which I also doubt.

    They are slower then dog poop.

    Just like when the world trade center buildings went down, there's much more to it than just "they bombed us". There is a hidden agenda, one in which plays both sides of the spectrum. But hey, we're getting way off topic here....

    I bought my wife an 07 Tiburon last year....thing was gutless, was RATED at 137hp.....probably 90 to the wheels....anyway, it was nice looking, rode great, blah blah...bought it brand new with 45 miles on the clock...four months later God decided it wasn't worthy of being in the same driveway as the SS, so He flooded it. Insurance paid it off, and I bought her an F-150...Lo and behold, that SOB is gutless too ....but dependable.

    They provoked it, we did nothing to them in the first place to deserve that attack.

    Hopefully they learned their lesson, maybe next time they'll think twice before start shit with us. I couldn't really care less about their cities or civilians, their governement was responsible for what they got.

    And as for the Tiburon, they are pieces of crap just like every other Korean car ever made. My friend has an '01 5 speed, so far its needed 2 clutches (they are very weak for some reason), the trans is shot, the engine has nasty valve tick, the valve cover cracked, a plug blew out of the head, the drivers side window regulator and motor self destructed, and both catalytic converters went bad and plugged up. Pretty much everything on that car is broken, and it hasn't even hit 100K miles.

    Sounds like the clutch's needed a Drivers mod!! But Im sure the engine's are POS, Never seen one or heard of one being built for anything.

    Nope. When the brand new clutch was installed, not even 100 miles later, I was riding with my friend and the clutch started slipping when we took off from a stop sign, with the clutch COMPLETELY ENGAGED. He pulled out and let the clutch out so it was fully engaged and then hit the gas to the floor, and it immediately started slipping badly. Complete garbage. Not to mention the pedal grabs all the way at the top, on both clutches he's had.

    I remember way back in the day, one of the Need for Speed games starred a Tiburon. Then after about 6 months of the game being out, I started seeing them flooding the streets. I won't lie to you, I do like how some of them look, but it's what's on the inside that counts right? In that case.... gutless "Korean" pieces of crap.

    I just remembered I smoked a modded Tiburon GT bad with a stock Ion Red-line once. The expression on the guys face was priceless. It was in 04 when the Red-line's just came out so I don't think he knew what hit him!

    I remember that one, it had you beating cars with the tiburon that in real life there would have been no chance of a tiburon beating.
