actually, long as mista has a car I'm greatful! I'd take any of these cars if they were given to me because a cars main objective is to get u from "A" to "B" anyway! As long as I have somethin to drive I'm coo oh, and to answer your question Tam any of them if it came down to it.




It'* Mista "cars are meant to be drove before anything else"

I agree with Tamara, I owned a Honda civic before I got married and I had lots of fun specially on gas, now with a family and kids I still get my kicks but with a bigger family car that is hot all around...
Now I'm saving some money behind the wifes back for some small mods....

Hey Jr you know they made a small amount of those Galants in Turbo AWD form. Exacty same drivetrain as the GSX Eclipse and its twins.

They are very bad *** sleepers.

Look at that.

Size alone does not safe a car make.

As for me I don't think I would ever drive a Dawoe or however you spell it.

I have worked and driven them and not liked the ones I have seen.

The KIA'* and Hyaundia'* I have worked on and driven have been for the most part ok.

Yeah they are really rare though. I have even heard that they made a few AWD Turbo Wagon style galants.

Have never seen one though. That would be too cool to have one.

I wouldn't drive a Daewoo, Kia, and all Hyundai, except for the new Tiburon.

Actually, I wouldn't OWN a Tiburon, but I wouldn't mind driving it, maybe rent one sometime, floor it up to 85mph and then slam it in reverse!! HAHAHAHAHA!!
The old Tiburons are so nasty looking. Looks like they tried too hard to make it look 'cool'. The new ones are much better, but still not great.

I prefer Bonnes, and next to that the GPs, especially the GTX and GTP'*. I prefer big four-door cars that mix sport with luxury, and a lot of power!

I've driven my mom'* Ford T-bird. It has a 3.8 V6, not sure the horsepower, but it is much slower than our 3800s. It shifts like sh** IMO.

I would not drive a Sunfire, Neon, Accent, Elantra, Escort, "Anal" Probe, Civic (they may be reliable but they're boring looking, and too common)........etc., etc.

It all comes down to power, reliability, and "driving excitement." The feeling you get when you are driving a beautiful, fast car like the Bonne

Turon GT could smoke some of your guys Bonnevilles
Correct spelling, Tiburon (I think ???).

Anyways, what does this have to do with anything, besides the fact that it doesn't make any sense. The Hundai Tiburon GT is the top of the line model, and if you get a 5 speed it runs low 16'*, with an auto they run mid 16'*. The SSEi is the top of the line model, and they run in the 15'* stock. If you were to take a Bonneville SE against a bottom of the line Tiburon in a race, the Bonne would win. But, I would never drive a Hundai because they have horrible reviews from everybody, they are low quality cars, and none of them are appealing to me, besides, any company that can sell an "SUV" for 20K has to have some problems somewhere. Just my $.02. I have no problem with anyone else driving a Hundai, go ahead, I don't care, I just personally don't want one.

Speaking of Tiburon GT'*, a couple months ago a Tiburon GT pulled up next to us on the highway when we were in the GTP (before Intercooler and other mods), the car was probably a low-mid 13 second car at the time, and the guy was acting like he wanted to race, he was revving and stuff, so he nails it @ about 80mph, so we nail it, by 115 we had 20+ carlengths on him, it was hilarious. He got off at the next exit. I am assuming he was very suprised, since the GTP has no appearance mods, nobody expects it to be as fast as it is, especially not Corvettes & SS Camaro'*.

I agree 100%. I've heard a lot of stuff about the Hyundais improving or whatever, but while I don't know the facts on those reports, all I have to say is:

They have a 10 year, 100,000 mile warranty because you're going to NEED IT!!! Something is definitely lacking in the quality department
