Tucsons

So in general how have these Tucson's been?
I did not see any thing really negative about these in the forum.

Pardon me, but what is there not to like about a Sonata?
We could give you some feedback either way, but need to know why you would prefer the Tucson? Not that it is good, or bad, just different

All the Best, Mike

I'm sorry for all your troubles. Maybe your car was built as a "rush job" to fill a quota to be shipped out?

I had no problems like that after 50k miles on my Tucson.

Good Luck, Mike

We absolutely love our Tucson GLS......
Only issue is a chirping heater fan.

I would get another in a heartbeat.

There are a few nits, from memory of reading/posting here...imo:
-the electric steering is vague & touchy at the same time.
-braking power isn't what it could be esp for the lighter weight of the car
-some brake noise, wear, & shudder posts
-one will never see the EPA Hwy mpg in real world driving
-mpg resets itself, (a quirk).
-tire wear for many of us, is excessive
But, in ~25,000 miles my wife's '10 Tuck Ltd has run well and she likes it. Time will tell, as we tend to keep cars several years.
My 50Cts...
GL, mD

My 11 limited is now 23 months 13,000Km (7,800 miles),
1) The check engine light gave me 2 months of trouble but finally resolved by replacing the trans.temp sensor
2) Left tailgate damper replaced for an "it it " noise. It's under warranty. If I have to pay for it then I will live with it.
3) Not that enough power (2.4L) for 4 adults + 3 big luggages with a/c on to airport.
3) As M.D, said above, the fuel consumption is excessive for a 2.4L. which I don't mind.
otherwise cannot think of any more complaints. Quite happy with it actually.

Overall, I'm pretty satisfied. Considering 5 years ago I never would have thought I'd look at a Hyundai/Kia product let alone drive one.

- had rear suspension clunk fixed twice. I think it may be the bushings so it may occur again. No big deal.

- vague steering but you get used to it.

- gas mileage is not bad. I find manually shifting it nets better mileage.

- sunroof creaked. A little lube fixed that.

- Active Headrest is either activated or broken (see my thread). Hyundai Canada is looking into it (or so they say).

- could use the 2.0T
