Post Scion tC or Tiburon
Alright I'm thinking of buying a new car, however stuck between two. I don't care about people opinions on if they are sucky or not. I have made my choices and narrowed down it to two. I just want to know which people would rather have out of my choices. If you are stuck between the two, don't fucking vote.

Tiburon = http://hyundaiusa.com/vehicle/tiburon/index.asp
or
Scion tC = http://scion.com/showroom/tc/gallery/

You may commence with the voting.

[EDIT]

If your post is not about either car or helping me decide, I will be hiting the delete button for your shit.

Holy fuck get the Scion, aside from it being a very cool car inside and out, it's made by Toyota so it will last you 200,000 miles +.

My roommate has one and he's really happy with it. The custimization options are pretty insane, and the panoramic moonroof is really sweet. The car is very rev happy, and the 2AZ-FE puts down around 160hp while giving you over 30mpg. It has a ton of leg room front AND back which is nice, plenty of cargo space, and a really comfortable ride.

The Tiburon puts down something like 170... with a V6. That means it's torquier, but it's going to get shitty gas mileage. That and it's a Hyundai. While the 100,000 mile 10 year warranty sounds nice on paper, it's useless. Most new cars won't break down before 100,000 miles (though with a Hyundai it's definitely possible)

The Scion is lighter, gets better gas mileage, has a much cooler interior, is roomier, rides quieter, is infinitely more reliable. Add a mild spoiler too it and I think it's the better looking car too.

Truth

Also forgot to mention that there's an option for a supercharger, which bumps it up over 200hp and a fuckton of torque, while still maintaining good better fuel economy than the Tiburon.

The Scion page won't load for me, but I hope to god it's not one of those boxes. As long as it isn't, go for the Scion.

You're slightly less of a tool if you buy the Scion.

Hyundai is like the fast food of cars. It's cheap and easy, but ultimately feels you leaving unsatisfied and sad about your life in the end.

Note: I am very picky about vehicles, I admit. Lots of things about them piss me off... a lot. So don't take offense, please.

Tiberon is kind of a girls car imo. And as already stated, Hyundai has a rather poor track record when it come to the longevity of their vehicles.

Scion.

i've read they've gone a long way in improving the quality of their vehicles. their vans were rated safest in some car mag a year back.

but still, choosing between a toyota and a hyndai? how is that even a decision? unless if the tiberon was half as cheap and you just need a temporary car to get around.

Hyundai makes vans?

Yes, Hyundais are more reliable than they were, but still nowhere near as good as Toyota.

Get the scion! I blew a transmission on a tiburon, under normal operation. (seriously, I wasn't bagging the piss out of it, and it wasn't bagged by it's owner either.) Only had slightly more than 60k on it, and we had problems getting if fixed under warranty....not recommended.

Damn, I gotta say, that scion sounds like one nice car (checked out the website for both) I've heard lots of people insulting Scion owners and shit (because manny of them are like "ricers" and just want to mod their car into something that is almost as useless as they are), but those look fucking nice!
