So I finally sold the Tiburon.

After many months of looking for a replacement, or an addition to it. I bought the Wrangler as an addition for the winter. But after driving it for a few months, i was SO much more comfortable in it, and whenever i got in the Tib i felt cramped in there. So i decided to sell it.

The lack of room finally got to me. At 6'4'' i felt like i was crawling into it, i had no headroom without reclining my seat back pretty far, the dash would poke my leg. I also wanted to get a canoe or waverunner, something the Tib cant haul. I never drove it fast, raced, or drove hard at all. I just simply grew out of the compact sports scene.

In the 2 1/2 years, and 42k i owned it. (bought it with 10k on the clock) I had a few issues, namely the stupid moonroof sunshade, damn thing broke like 3 times on me, the MAF, and cruise control module. It was a solid, dependable car. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another Hyundai if the situation warrants. It was built in April 2002, which was supposed to be a clutch problem model, but i never had an issue with it.

I got an offer for it that was what i was looking for. I wanted to sell it before it depreciated too much, and with how other people around here are having trouble selling theirs i feel pretty fortunate.

The Jeep was the right price, with all the right options. I just put a small 2" lift on it with some 31s, and i love it. I cannot wait for summer to tape the top off. Here is a pic.http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/thamole187/detail?.dir=64e0re2&.dnm=96fbre2.jpg&.src=ph
The gas mileage sucks, but at this point i don't care. I am just soooo much more comfortable in the Jeep. By girlfriend loved the Tiburon, but she is warming up to the Jeep, she is even talking about selling her car to get a SUV, she doesnt like sitting so low on the road in her car now. :3_bier:

I'll still be sticking around, but probably not as active as i once was.

I just went from the SUV to the tiburon, and even though I hate to admit it, being 6'3" and going to a tibby probably wasn't the smartest. . . .
