Sent this to Hyundai

This is what I asked:

"I would love a straight answer from Hyundai on the current status of the 2.4L engine that is in the 2019 Tucson. Has the engine failure issue been resolved on these models/engines? Or will after so many miles it will exhibit the same problems as years past? I'm not interested in the warranty, as I have no interest in waiting months for a new engine etc. Has the debris issue on engines for current production 2.4L's fixed? And I would like the truth. Thank You !"

For all the good it will do.

You don't really expect them to answer that, do you?

Most if not all manufacturers have experienced recalls due to issues in the manufacturing process. I high lay doubt the debris issue found in previous engines for 2.4L's have not been completely resolved.

I have zero concerns that problem will reoccur in new production engines.

If anyone can squeeze good mileage out of a car I can. The 22 mpg I am supposed to get is complete fiction. Hyundai should be ashamed to have brought out such a fuel inefficient vehicle.

My 2018 with the 1.6 and DCT got about 28 mpg easy.

What I canít understand is that I had a new 2013 Santa Fe Sport and averaged about 23.5 mpg with the same engine. It would have weighed more than the Tucson. Mine gets 19.7 mpg in overall fuel mileage. That is completely unacceptable.

Glad I leased it because I will turn the keys in at the end of the lease.

With 2000 miles on the clock of my 2019 Limited 2.4L/6Spd, I am getting 22 and 26+ MPG, pretty much right on the window sticker EPA estimates of 22City/28Hwy/25Combined, given that my Highway driving wouldnt be as efficient as a constant speed test. As for my City driving, I do very little idling, or start stop except for stoplights, mostly trips under 10 miles one way and speed limits of 40-45. Seemed to improve a little after about the third tank of gas and of course, here in Missouri, its 10% ethanol with less energy, assuming somebody isnt cold blending closer to E85 for a little extra profit. If I paid 20% extra for the No Ethanol Unleaded at QuikTrip, I'm sure it would meet the window sticker estimates 100%.

Exclamation Best to run away ?

I'm thinking it might be the safe bet to forget getting a new 2019 Tucson. I like everything about it, but the possible future engine failure. I'm not interested in having that headache down the road, warranty not withstanding. I'ts a real bummer too. Had a pretty good deal going on a awd Sport. What say you guys ? Any hints that the 19's are going to have problems too ?

Not worried about it at all. We have a '16 Limited and have had zero problems, even with the DCT. Just added a '19 Tuscon Night edition with the 2.4 to the family and it's really nice.
