I do not own a Tucson, but will consider it next year when my current Altima lease is up.
I have only owned this vehicle about 8 months and have over 12,000 miles on it. It runs great, has lots of power with the V6 engine and tows my utility trailer just fine, ride is a little on the rough side but handles great too.
Cons: Getting used to console shift.I have been satisfied with every aspect of this automobile. Gas mileage as advertised. Comfortable ride. Great looks. Roomy and lots of cargo space. Would buy again.
2011 GLS 4 cyl
Cons: road noiseThis is my second Hyundai and I love it. Great value and quality. The 4 cyl has plenty of excelleration and for towing small trailers or ones with built in breaks. Plenty of room for my kids. We love it. Road noise is a little more then some, but for the price, you can't beat it.
Cons: seat belt rewind/ some damage to driver side upholstryWas a grate buy for the money
Still in the market
Pros: a lot of load for the money and warranty is excellent
Cons: cigarrete ashtray in the consoleIm still looking for a car and this might be the shoes your in, when you are reading this. I've test driven traverse, pathfinder, pilot and cx-9, if you notice all the cars im looking for has a 3rd row, traverse is realy weird will never buy, pilot is too much money for the load comparable to veracruz, right now im down to the cx-9, vera cruz and path finder, pathfinder has a rebate right now of 2500 so the price becomes comparable and cx-9 has a price special, all 3 after rebate is about 26k-27k
Class leading Vehicle
Pros: Favorite feature(s) - Ride and Handling.
Cons: Black numbers/letters on a blue backlit panel - very difficult to view in daylight.Owned a Chrysler T&C for many years before an accident took it away. The latest models were designed from the inside out and have no style. My wife purchased a Hyundai Sonata and we are both impressed with every aspect of this vehicle. I saw the Veracruz, and was immediately smitten by the esthetics. A test drive pushed me over the edge, and I can't remember when I made a better automotive decision. My only problem is how quickly I'm racking up the miles. Once behind the wheel, I don't want to get out - it's that much fun to drive.
