2008 Hyundai Tucson User Reviews
- $8,928 - $12,966
- No trim specified for this review
- Dependable, Practical, opening back window, overhead rear door
- Looking at the car I believe the side molding that was on the 2005 Toyota would fit and wish there were an aftermarket kit to purchase. A valet key would be nice, along with a 110v outlet.Would be nice also if Hyundai would replace the timing belt with a timing chain on the 4 cyl.
Purchased As New
Bought the vehicle new and its still going strong. Ample power, dependable. 18,000 miles with no problems. Have gone to North Carolina several times and it has no problems takiing the mountains or passing uphill. Handles great, nice sound system. For two people with the rear seats down it will hold a lot of stuff. I installed a tow receiver and with a small trailer I use it to pickup items at the home centers, taking the yard tractor to the mower shop, or the delivery couches, dressers for the kids. without any noticeable loss in power. Don't miss my gas guzzling Silverado one bit. Front wheel drive handles snow well (changed OEM tires). Don't listen to the expert reviews. I don't understand those who buy a vehicle and then knock it. After looking at many vehciles, I test drove this model several times and rented one for a day. I decided on this because of the warranty, reliability, and price.The 14 gallon tank doesn't empty the bank account at fillups. Some say the tank is to small, but after driving 4 hours I need to stretch anyhow so I top off the tank.The mileage is good on trips averaging 26 to 28 mile per gallon. For me the difference in power with the 6 cyl. wasn't worth the extra cost in price and sacrificing a few mileage points. I also like the the rear door opens up and not to the side, the opening rear window is a nice feature. Brakes well. For the money you get a lot of vehicle without overpaying. Sure it may not hold a high resale, I keep most of my vehicles for at least 12 to 15 years so it doesn't matter to me what the resale is. Hyundai Tucson gets high marks in the reliabilty area. Also, I save $240 a year on my insurance before I even left the showroom because of all the added safety features. Very practical vehicle, for my purposes I'm satisfied with the purchase.
