I filled out the form and sent it.
It was a good review. My observations:
Braking is a little long for its class(abs or not)
0-60 is a little slow for this class.
Car is a bit heavy.
In the end though...looks make up for all. THE Hyundai to lust for.

And now, back to the subject of the 2003 Hyundai Tiburon!

Korean people are proud of Tiburon(Tuscani) just like Skyline GTR of Japanese people.. Tiburon fans think it has very large potential so they tune it hardly..!!
Several weeks ago, "La-seng", a Tiburon V6 owner gave challenges to Silvia S15 Spec-R and Lancer evo TME.. To see the Down-hill battle, more than 100 sportcar owners (even Ferrari,Porsche) went to Mt.Jung-mi BUT.. "La-seng" didn't appear..-_-;;
In my oppinion, Tiburon V6 is very nice coupe in terms of its PRICE.. BUT It can't be GTR..!! Some owners in Korea who doesn't recogniz this fact, make their Lovely Tiburons and even the other owners fools..
Anyway, Thank u everybody for being concerned about Korean cars..!!
P.S : This is my car.. Daewoo Prince FR Sedan.. It has a Holden(GM) engine..

tuning much at all. I like how it comes stock from Hyundai's factory. The 2.7-litre V6 is the same basic engine in the Sante Fe and Sonata, but has a unique ``non-twist'' crankshaft casing to improve reliability and overall refinement. What's more it also has a stylish new body that is longer, wider and heavier than the model it replaces. However, Hyundai claims to have improved the car's torsional rigidity by 20 per cent and its bending stiffness by a massive 60 per cent, which means better safety and handling. Smart, eh? Less horses produced coupled by more torsional rigidity and a little heavier body means a compromise of top-end speed through the higher gears. An engine needing refining...or does it? When you gather together how and why this car is engineered the way it is you understand it's limitations. To me, they're not limitations at all...I mean, we've got enough moronic road-racers in this nation as it is. Take some more downers people, I mean really! I'd like to make it home for the SuperSonic's game. GT V6 owners have been getting anywhere from 16.6 to 20, 25 mpg....I've even heard of people getting 30mpg in their 2003 Hyundai Tiburon GT V6. I don't think that bit of input was very scientific-I tend to not believe it. However, I am very impressed with this vehicle from many different angles. I'm interested in those new colors for 2004, that I am. Rally Red remains my fave.
