- $8,928 - $12,966
- No trim specified for this review
- Extremely comfortable front seat with 4 individual controls, very quiet engine, great ride
- Cannot use regular seat covers because of side airbags
very comfy, like the styling, roomy interior-feels bigger than my Ford Ranger pick up. Automatic 4 cyllinder about the same power as my truck so ok...I am not a lead foot. Mileage is well over 20mpg in city.
Less than 30K, no problems yet. Stock Audio system is very good. Love the XM satelite...has MP3 plug in. Fuse/Plugs in rear.
Very good safty features. Rug mats snap in place and stay put. (I did add mud mats since I am at a ranch daily).
So much more comfortable than my pickup...rode better than the Honda & Toys that felt a bit boucy, like little cars over regular pavement bumps. Because of the Tucsons extra weight the ride is probably better and mileage not as good. Very smooth, quiet shifting tranny.
No complaints with the interior fabric....holding up well, just not very fancy but feels just as strong as my truck, and plastic seems ok. Easy to keep clean.
( I did not try the Ford Escape due to integrity of their products...my Ranger squeals, squeaks, rattles...all starting after the warranty ran out...that will be my last Amer. built car...my Saturn's under powered engine blew at 75K) So back to the imports after owning Japanese vehicles that just kept running.
Great warranty...I plan on keeping this for just 5 years...as technology will change and hopefully a greener vehicle will be introduced. Stayed away from hybrids...yes easy on gas but where are all those batteries going??? Not as green as they are hyped...and 5K for a new battery in just a few years really make them more expensive to drive in the long run.
