Re: turning radius

a perfectly executed 27 point turn will make short work of any annoyingly small turn...

Re: turning radius

One of the first times I drove a Tib I've also noticed the turning radius isn't that good.

Re: turning radius

Really? The turning radius is that bad? I thought it was good. But then again, I don't think I have ever driven another sports coupe other than my Tiburon.

Re: turning radius

For what the tiburon is, it's turning radius is piss poor. I can't hate it too much. We just bought my wife a new maxima and it's radius isn't much better. But come on. It handles like a 4 door.

Re: turning radius

tib's turning radius does indeed suck. but ive certainly drived worse. my accent turns way tighter. doesnt have anything to do with the size of the car, though. my cherokee turns even tighter than the accent, you can easily u-turn on a 2 lane road.

Re: turning radius

My cavaler turned way tighter than the tib did. But i still like the tib. The turn radius isn't that bad. If your doing htat many U-Turns to get annoyed by it, maybe you should work on your driving and navagation skills. Cuz i'd say that sucks way more than the turn radius.
