I have a 1998 Hyundai Tiburon Manual, just wondering what the general outlook on Hyundais were...
*raspberry* :badrazz: i think that just about sums it up for a mojority of people
........but, some can be nice...
one of my neighbors has one. same year, in black, FX model. outside, it
looks really nice. for a while, he was the only one in PR that had his
flares, headlights, rear spoiler, and lips. yet, lately, people have found
his spoiler and some of the flares. luckily, none of them knows how to get
his headlights, and even less the turn signals. ill take a picture when i
get the chance and show it to ya.
as far as performance. well, they are like non-turbo eclipses. once they start breaking down, its hard to get them to stop doing so. hes had a few rough times with the car, but mostly cuz he doesnt listen to me with maintainance. he has some sporty camshafts, headers with full 2in exhaust with no cat, a front mount air filter, and a stronger clutch. its a nice ride and its quick for wat it is. no rocket car, but its nice and they have potential.
We have an ;02 Accent as a cheap commuter car, and it's been great. Yes,
it's cheap, slow, and feels a little like a Japanese car from the '80s, but
it's comfortable, economical and you can't beat the warranty...
Hyundai's come a long way since the days of the Pony and early Excels...
buy 1 get one free deal was the best thing that Kia ever did. which isnt hyundai but close enough
kia actually had a deal like that?!?! never heard of a car sale like that
I got my '03 4 banger Tib about a year back and love it. I know a lot of
folks talk crap about Hyundais, but their quality has definitely improved
in the past ten years or so. I've gotten plenty of looks while driving it,
and yes, from some ladies that weren't too shabby lol
The kicker is the performance, which is a little subpar to say the least. A 138hp engine isn't exactly a rocket, so your only option to really boost it up would be a turbo, or headers/intake/fancy stickers if you want to dick around :thumbs:
That said, I'm looking into the Alpine turbo they have available...wonder how that sucker is...
