Purchased As New
I?ve owned my 2005 Hyundai Tucson GLS V6 4WD for nearly 4 years and have put about 60K mi on it without any major issues. The thing goes great in rain, ice and snow; can carry a surprising amount of stuff even with 3 or 4 people in it; and has plenty of spunk with the V6 and get about 20 mpg in the combine type driving I do. It can do reasonable off road driving (trails/paths, fields, etc.); rides well on the highway, but it is susceptible to buffeting from high winds (price you pay for ground clearance in a little package).
The factory tires and battery both lasted about two years (~30K) which wasn?t great but unfortunately my experience with Asian tires and batteries says this is typical. This made the 30K scheduled maintenance check friendly with $1000 mark, (about $400 in tires and Wal-Mart battery). I did have a CD get stuck in the player once and the dealer replaced the radio and returned the CD with no hassle.
My will be going in for its 60K maintenance soon and I expect it to need brake pads, also have a few minor warranty items (body squeak, cap on the wiper arm and diver?s front door side weather stripping dry rot).
Over all it really is a nice vehicle for the price and I will absolutely consider replacing it, some day with another Tucson. The amazing thing is that it is still worth about 50% of what I paid for it. Maybe Government Motors should buy a few of these to see how a small SUV should be built!
