Operating time versus miles traveled.My Tucson takes around ten miles before I get any useful heat out of it.
It's winter here in Eastern US, and it's really cold.
My Santa Fe and Rav4 warm up in about one to two miles.
I didn't think the 2.0L Naturally Aspirated engine had the warmup issue, you might have a problem with your car if it takes 30 minutes to get warm air. My 1.6T gets warm before that, and it's been less than 1F here in the mornings.My 2017 2.0L takes about 20 minutes to warm up to where the needle starts to move. That's no even to where it's blowing warm air from the vents. That might take another 10 minutes. Doesn't matter if I'm on the freeway or city streets.
Granted, it's been +15f down to -2f these past few weeks. But even when it was in the 30f-50f range, and brand new just two months ago, I noticed that this vehicle does not warm up even as quick as my old 5.7L V8 1994 Impala SS.
