We purchased a new 2009 Hyundai Tucson GL - 25th Anniversary Edition in the Spring and have been pleasantly surprised with the comfort and performance enjoyed over the first 8500 kilometers (5300 miles). the value-added package. Included in our Tucson's Anniversary package is a premium Kenwood stereo system, a Garmin in-dash GPS system, a 2-way power sunroof and body colour door handles and mirrors. These features, along with heated seats, air conditioning, keyless remote entry, 4-wheel disc brakes, ABS with EBD, 60/100,000(mo/km) comprehensive warranty and more made the purchase decision for this vehicle a "no-brainer." The wife loves the easy to operate features and controls found throughout the SUV. We recently purchased 4 winter tires and rims in preparation of the upcoming Winter months.
The only negatives we had at the beginning was the marginally noisier ride (we were always used to more soundproofing in our previous cars) and the firmness of the rear seatback, but we've grown accustomed to both over time.
I'm anxious to see how the Tucson keeps its excellent composure in extreme snow/ice conditions with its enhanced electronic stability and traction control (standard equipment).
Fuel economy for our Tucson is reasonable at approx. 23 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.
Overall, we are quite pleased with our vehicle and would recommend it to our family and friends.
