A new car!

So of late i really havent been on here as much as i would like.....UTI has got me pretty busy. Love it though. The only think killing me was gas...the way i drove i got 15mpg....and had to fill up atleast once a week cuz besides school, i had work and ****. Anyways.....i was content on buying a car soonish...checked out a honda i wanted with a motorswap......turned out to be crap. Anyways...found this guy at the same place i found the mazda...maybe it meant something.

03 Hyundai Tiburon GT: 2.7L? v6, 6speed manual.....and high miles...157k

hopefully itll last me a while though. but for what i got it for...i cant complain too much. It should just be nice to get a decent MPG for once without having to wear out my 35's!!!!!!!!

So the ranger gets a bit of a break, and the mazda......might find its way to a new owner if im lucky.....cuz i think its time to move on. still drives great...and thats what kills me.

I don't play well with front wheel drive, but if it gets you better mileage and that's what you want then I'm happy for you.

Be careful with the clutch on those. Hyundai had a recall of the 03's cause the clutches wore out fast. I used to build up Hyundai's, there is ALOT of potential under that hood.

They wasted their time when they brought it out in its first rendition. Its real sharp looking now, thats the same 2.7 V6 in The Kia Optima...wow what a rocket. My father-in-law bought the 06.5 Optima EX V6..
Sharp ride.....

LMAO.

Not a bad looking ride. I'd never buy one, but to each their own. Is a car payment cheaper and better then filling up the gas tank once a week?

At least you're keeping miles off the Ranger.

Nice i like the tib's. However the new genesis is even better. Hyundai is definitely going in the right direction with their cars.
