had my 2L 4x4 comfort petrol model for 2 weeks now, and i love driving it, i´ve done 2500km on it, and fuel comsumption is nothing like what the manufacturers are stating, which makes me a little upset.
The engine has a nice meaty roar to it when you pull away, accelaration has got better,i now can feel the power, where as before i felt that it was a bit sluggish.
When changing gears the rev kinda hangs, instead of it being responsive,the rev counter slowly goes down when changing gears.
Drove more than 500Km at 120km an hour 12hours after getting the Tucson and the engine/wind noise was very minimal.
I´ve had the front U type bull bar fitted, which goes well with the black ebony body and black tinted windows, the interior is beige so i´m waiting for the wood finish dashboard kit.
it´s heavy so it grips the road very well, not taken it of road yet, but i will.
Some things they could have improved: the boot is not too big especially when the tray is down, when its off the size is acceptable, the tray does not raise when you open the tail gate, so thats annoying,there are no dashboard dispaly to tell you that you have the central locking on or the lights on, the arm rest is a bit too far back so it does not make it that comfortable, i had the citroen picasso and its armrest was attatched to the chair so this made it very comfortable.
all in all a very good drive , i need to get the hang of it, so i will keep you posted.

how bad are the fuel consumption figures yor are getting? I am getting between 19l/100km and 17l/100km, double the quoted figures. If it stays like this I cant run the car..... even my santa fe did much better than that. Before I go back the garage Id like to check what others are getting. Ie do I have a fault, or is it just like that!!

I am also getting very poor fuel consumption figures. approximately 20-25 per gallon, whichj is way way below officiel figures.
