According to the specs in the manual the Tiburon is capable of 0-60 in 8 seconds. I think that must be an average from consumer driving skills. I have been 0-60 in under 6 secs and 0-80 in 8 secs. Very quick for an inexpensive car. Was told by the salesman, following my purchase, that the Sonata is even quicker! It has more room also!
We recently had an accident locally where a Tiburon was clocked at 130 mph while on an on-ramp to the interstate. He lost control and rolled 4 times. The driver had minor bruises and the car was still drivable!!! Just cosmetic damage!
I have a tiburon also, an 03' though. Glad to hear it made it though. I love my car!
I own a 1998 Hyundai Tiburon 1.8L DOHC with +200,000 kms on the odo and still runs like day 1, strong engine!
Wow. You are fucking iraognnt. You go out and make all these assumpsions and shit and lable me as a moron, But if you wanna take it that route. GM has won lemans, Product classic cars and their corvette has actually done better than any car ever made including anything honda has ever made but dumbshits like you only focus on the fact that GM filed for bankrurptcy, well I got news for you. Lamborghini did the samething back in the 70 s and look were they are at today.
Have the '08 GT/V6 model. Fun to drive but boy does it eat up gas. Fastest I've gone in it is about 148 mph and still wants to climb.
I've gone 40 miles on reserve in an 03 GT with just CAI. 20 miles with heavily modified boosted 03 GT and since people are talking about top speeds mine maxed at 156mph. Good day
