pretty much this is a great car!

i love the way it drives! seat belts suck! but i havnt had any major problems with my Tib and its got 128,000 miles on it. its never left me stranded. its got some power to it even though its an older automatic. the paint is chipping though. overall id definitly buy another one.



Nothing fancy, but nothing boring. Poor visibility. Good handling. Great MPG. Smaller size. Fun with manual transmission. Bucket seats stock. Decent stereo. Tiburon means shark in Spanish.


Great first car

It was my first car and it still works well. I?ve had some transmission issues but that is to be expected on a car with 200,000 miles. I still haven?t needed to do any major repairs. Over all it?s a good car but if you?re looking for a really fast car I would not recommend this. The handling is great and the seats are comfortable.


Looks good, feels good, is good :)

It's the first car I've fully paid for, and I 100% believe I've gotten my money's worth! I'm only 4' 11'' so room isn't much of an issue, but I will admit that even the back seat is small for me. I've had taller friends ride with me and it's pretty hilarious seeing them try to fit. The inside is very comfortable and the driver seat has a lumbar adjustment for your back for long drives- I've spent about 5 hours in it in one day without feeling too uncomfortable. Even not in perfect shape, it's proven to be very sturdy and reliable! And it's 17 years old! Doesn't feel like it. I was originally going to get a different car but had to settle for this one, but I don't feel like it's really a step down at all, it's perfect for me and would definately recommend it to someone who wants a small sportsy car with nice looks, nice handle, and nice price :)


The best car I?ve owned

150000 miles and almost all original parts still on vehicle looking for another one just like it to keep in case one or the other goes bad


Cool little car

For the price this is a great value. It's surprisingly quick and nimble with a good size trunk. And it's attractive. It's a 16 yr old car so expect some repairs. And yal. it's a bumpy ride but that's what you get with a small sports car.


Most Reliable Car I've Owned

This care is pretty good and also it just looks cool I mean look at it who cares how it runs when you have something like that I mean girls will literary throw themselves at you.. TURN UP!


I like this lil car

This car is good on gas the best i ever have if u are on the market to get one trust me u will love this lil car


Best for the bucks!

Quick, easy handling, great gas mileage, everything A-1 except for the small rear seat... which folds down to make extra cargo space. Oil changed on schedule and have had ZERO mechanical problems.


First car

Very Hot car. The cabin vibrations are a little annoying at time (I had to take some pennies and tape them to the rear view mirror to keep it from making a buzzing noise). I am 6'4" and it is a little weird to get in and out of, but once you are in, it is surprisingly comfortable. The trunk is very large (especially when the back seats are folded down). I can fit two of my tubas in there comfortably. However, the back seats really aren't for human passengers. Very, very small. Because the ride is so close to the road, you feel a lot of the bumps on the road. It isn't too disturbing, but you feel them a lot more than if you were in an SUV or a sedan. I still find the ride to be really nice though. The look from the cabin is really nice :D. One con I have against this car is the cup holders. They don't really fit anything well. You can't even put a 20oz bottle in there. Not a big deal, but really annoying if you are riding alone and are thirsty.
