Let me know what you think. I have narrowed my car shopping down to two cars. The v6 Camaro or the 2003 Tib. I keep leaning towards the Tib. Let me know why I should get the Tib instead of the camaro

Well first off,

same price pretty much BUT you get tonnes more options with the Tiburon, so HUGE value in comparison. If you don't want a fully loaded Tiburon, then you save tonnes with the Tiburon.

SCC felt the Tiburon V6 had better handling then a lot of the I4's they had tested it against if you scroll through, and right there, that means that you can out handle a Camaro ANY DAY.

I got here a 1/4 mile for the Camaro of 16.1 but someone was saying before they were running around 15.6 or something like that. Tiburon is running about 15.6. I think you can still do better but I m just using 15.6 for argument sakes.

You get 10 year warranty on the Tiburon so screw the 'reliability war' and the crap that Chevy makes more reliable cars the Hyundai ya da ya da from the domestic lovers.

Tiburon is less on insurance, probally better on mileage.

Overall, I don't think the Camaro can compare to the Tiburon, Tiburon is just so much more superior when looking at these categories.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/angel.gif width=25 height=20 border=0>

Plus if you buy the Camaro you are buying a discontinued car. There is a reason they are dropping the Trans am/camaro/firebird, they've been outsold badly by the mustang. I've read on Edmunds that the fit and finish/build quality is actually quite sad on the Camaros. Ultimately it's your choice though. I think the Camaros look like ass personally. I love my 2003 Tib.

How many camaros have you seen on the road? I don't even look twice at them. My 2000 silver Tiburon still TURNS HEADS.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

The camaro........
1) is slower
2)is 125%(consumer reports) more likely to brake down than a normall car
3)has a cheap interior
4)would be less fun to drive

They're also planning on bringing them back in a few years.

Guys, you're kidding me, right? A camaro has 320 bhp, and rwd, and you're saying it's slower than a tib? I've heard low 14s for the camaro in the 1/4, stock.

If you're gonna get a camaro, get the v8. The v6 is pure trash. Get a used one if you have to.

Since I have an Elantra GT, I haven't had much experience with the Tiburon. But I have dealt with the Camaro, both v6 and v8. The Camaro's interior is crap. The buttons and other things like plastic panels break real easy. And its kinda strange how every 4 or 5 year Camaro I've seen has the check engine light on. Its true all the body panels except the roof and rear fenders are made of plastic. The plastic doesn't dent, but it will scratch and if you hit it hard enought it will break. I think the only strong point of the Camaro is the proven old tech engines. They go on forever. Oh yeah and the fact that with the LT1 V8 you can spin the tyres in just about gear, even witht the automatic tranny. Nobody fits in the back.

jaebusak,

Dude at least read the first post before you reply. Knowledge can be gained but one word at a time, but you have to actually read all the words, not just a couple.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

straight drag, who wins??
<hr height=1 noshade id=quote></BLOCKQUOTE id=quote>
Probably V6 Camaro, but only just. For a given power/weight ratio, RWD a small advantage because rearward weight transfer puts a greater percentage of the vehicle weight over the drive wheels. With most FWD, weight is removed from the drive wheels.

Twisty highway, who wins??
My money would be on a V6 Tib. Hell, against a V6 Camaro (or Mustang) an I4 Tib would probably come out faster.

V6 Camaro? Are you kidding? My friend's got one and it's got one of the worst interior I've ever seen! I will pick Hyundai Accent over Camaro V6. I can't understand minds of people driving V6 Camaro or Mustang. Also, be aware...... Camaro seats sit soooo low that it will hinder your vision.

Get Tib GT!! It's MUCH MUCH better.......
