Took delivery of our new 2010 Hyundai Tucson GLS w/Pop pkg last weekend. Noticed that the '10 Tucson does not have an "under the hood insulation pad". (The holes are located under the hood for the pins to install the pad.) We have owned four Hyundai vehicles since 2000 and all came with under hood insulation. Did mention this to the dealer who checked other '10 Tucsons on their lot which also did not have hood insulation. Initial communication from the dealer parts department is a "hood insulator pad is shown on the '10 Hyundai Tucson master parts list with no price or availabilty date;......but the '10 Tucson factory build specifications does not currently call for a hood insulator pad."Anyone have any information? Thanks!!

We don't get the bronze color, or the interior taupe/red leather, or integrated bluethooth though!!

(although the bluetooth is coming, apparently).

I've ordered my highlander 3 weeks ago.. delivery in another 6 to 8 weeks.. :(

I love the interior red leather.. i wish we could get that...

I just printed out the Cars.com Hyundai Tuscon Limited....and...option group 01/AA shows an "egine cover" as part of this option group. I do not know if that is the same as the underhood insulation pad????? Is it???? :innocent:

Thanks for all the replies/information. The engine cover is available with the GLS Pop Pkg and the Limited. The engine cover is covering the top of the engine while the hood insulation pad is attached underneath the vehicles hood I guess to provide a bit of sound reduction? I guess the USA Tucson does not offer the hood insulation pad.

Appreciate the response. Thank you!

Aussie Dan - i got a deal for 39.9k for the highlander in titanium grey with
- reverse sensors
- front sensors
- parrot bluetooth
- mats
- tinting
- european black/orange number plates
- stylevisors/weathershields
- ipod connector

Then i met the aftermarket lady who tries to sell the paint/leather/interior/rust protection crap for $3000.. i bargained it down to $1700 with the first 3 years worth of services free (ie about $1400 worth)..

The dealer i got it from also gives an extra 3 years (limited) warranty, and free car washes for life!

So all up i paid 41.7k drive-away.

Think i got a pretty good deal...

AND, if my car turns out to be the newer version (June built onwards) then it will have inbuilt bluetooth - so i'll get a refund for the parrot bluetooth i purchased (Maybe around $400 or so).

Hi aussiedan.. i bought at Suttons (Rosebery).

I was also dealing with Parramatta - and they came very, very close.

Was very happy with both of them.
