I was gonna wait for the Tuscani but I am a very impatient person and seeing as how it won't be released until January at earliest, I am just getting the Tiburon.

Could anyone list all the negatives of this car so I just know what to expect? (i.e. if it has road noise or if it has bad mileage)

I love mine..just got it in july...and I woulda took it over the 2002 any day...who cares about the bigger engine...the Tib just has style...plus u can always throw a turbo in it...I got a cobalt blue one with everything but leather for a base price of 15808...and for that price im really impressed with this lil car..only thing u could really complain about is the back seat room...but who cares right, u wont be sittin back there heh...Definately one of the nicer cars for the buck out there!

It's over when I'm sober, Imagine when I'm drinkin!

Well personally I think the tiburon is the best sporty hatchback out there. Before I bought my 2001 tib, I test drove a celica and a ford ZX2.<P>

CELICA:<br>
I was dissapointed with the interior of the celica...all the controls were flimsy, hell I couldnt even get the damn air vents to point to my face..., There is NO leg/head room whatesoever. The celica does ride good and has very good acceleration with that vti engine. The leather interior is pretty sweet also (red/gray two-tone with black mesh.) It has very tight precise steering also...its a fun-to-drive car...but personally i think its overpriced (like all toyota vehichles) and those controls are just terribly designed<P>

ZX2:<br>
The ford zx2 is not very sporty looking (actually its just plain ugly) and the dash is all one piece..IE you cant just pop out the cd/tape player and pop in a new one...the a/c controls and everything else is all one piece...it sucks.<P>

TIBURON:<br>
The Tiburon is pretty much perfect inside and out. Its got enough room for me 6'1" tall/220lb. The conrols are nice and big and solid, the leather interior is very nice looking with the gray/black two-tone...The silver bullet style controls are awsome looking. My only complaint is that the sunvisor is kinda flimsy and wont stay in one place. Theres lots of leg/head room. It rides like a goddam cadillac, it gets good gas milage, Its got some power, and of course you cant beat that price. last night i was on the interstate going about 110mph with a freind of mine..and i was still accellerating at a little more than 5000 rpm.<p>

I would recommend the Tib to anyone, its a sweet ride

I bought my tib for under 14,000 (i had a $2,000 trade-in)<BR>

daing, the guy that got his for 15,800 loaded makes me jealous. I got mine at 15,300 baseline, but then again I got a good trade in deal on my ford probe
