This is the 2nd Hyundai I've owned. I previously owned a 2007 Sonata Limited V6, which proved to be reliable, comfortable, and powerful. I wanted to move back to an SUV for the higher ride height and because I like having the space in back to put my two 50-pound dogs. PROS: 1) Interior/Exterior Styling 2) Beautiful interior (mine is black with the saddle leather) 3) Decent gas mileage 4) Excellent assortment of standard features such as full iPod integration, hands-free Bluetooth for the phone, power driver's seat, dual-zone A/C which is COLD, and automatic headlights 5) Great handling for an SUV 6) Absolutely outstanding passenger room. My 6'6" tall partner has extra leg and headroom when driving or riding passenger. 7) Incredible warranty CONS: 1) A little more noisy than I like, but its not terrible 2) While the gas mileage is probably similar to other vehicles in the small SUV segment, I had higher hopes. I've not yet achieved the 31 MPG on the highway and typically get around 27, which is about the same I got on my V6 Sonata. I drive the speed limit. 3) The only moonroof available is this massive panoramic monster that has no total sunshade: a recipe for unbearable heat here in SE Texas and likely to let in more noise. I wish there was a standard, rectangular moonroof available. 4) The horn is the WORST. HORN. EVER. I found that vehicles from other manufacturers to be far more costly to equip comparable to the Tucson. Hed and legroom were especially important to me for the front seat due to my partner's 6'6" frame (and he's not overweight). All in all, I would buy my 2010 Tucson again and would definitely recommend it to others.

The Hyundai Tucson 2010 will be my second Suv. I currently own a 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander. Between the two I'd say goodbye Outlander Hello Tucson! I love the power as you press on the gear, handling is great, seats are comfortable, great for the family, cool aerodynamic design, has ipod connection feature... and finally great gas saver! So far no problems...

A winner in all departments except perhaps a little noisy on less than smooth surfaces. This vehicle is a well thought out piece of engineering and I imagine its brethern 2011 Kia Sportage will expand upon the subject. Great styling. Only other minus on driving is larger than normal right rear blind spot but all of these compact SUV's suffer from the same malady. Great paint color, might prove to be a little thin. (Bright blue) We compared to others and comparably equipped Compact SUV's were $2-3m more expensive. City driving we experience 24 mpg, have not hit the highway yet but saw 26.5 mpg from Denver over Berthoud Pass to Granby and back. After owning a large SUV, gas tank is a little small, but we are getting around 280 miles between fillups (wife gets nervous if light comes on so we don't stress limits)

I’m a 20 year plus Honda Guy and was looking for a new car, in recent years I have been very disappointed with their quality, so I took a chance with Hyundai and I couldn’t be happier. I want to share with you a recent driving experience; I was driving my new loaded Diamond Silver 2010 Tucson Limited on the freeway and passed a brand new Mercedes GLK –Class SUV, he sped up to check out my ride, he just kept looking and looking, I turn around and smiled, thinking what a fool, my car looks better, I’m getting better MPG’s and I paid half the price. If you know anything about cars you have to like the looks and you can’t beat the warranty. Watch out Hyundai’s coming up big time…

YES you read that right! This car literally saved my life. I had a minivan prior to this (04 Toyota Sienna) and wanted something more my style and newer. One day I was on the highway and a semi in front of me was hauling a large load of hay. I saw the stack of hay starting to lean and yep you guessed it......they were falling off and coming in my direction! This car did fantastic manuvering left right left right in quick motion to avoid hitting any of the hay bales. I seriously doubt my minivan would have done as well. The steering was great and kept me on the rode. It is very comfortable, the inside is perfect for me. The outside is stylish. The bluetooth I really didn't need but a bonus when calls come in. Haven't had an issue since I've had it (3 months so far) and it is so much fun to drive. This car is a keeper!!!

Right Vehicle for Empty Nesters

All the reviews I have seen talk about how great the Tucson is, looks, economy, feaatures and I'm not going to disagree. My case for buying this car is it is the perfect vehicle for an empty nester like me. I don't need to seat seven I just want to be able to put a full size adult in the back seat occationally and they can be comfortable. The Tucson allows any six foot guy to seat in back and not feel like a sardine. Pick up grocerys or some plants at the nursery, the back door has great access and mine came with a plastic floor insert that keeps the dirt and spills in the back contained. You can remove it for easy washing and your back in business. I'm not a techno nerd but I do like the GPS which is very easy to use and I even started using the IPOD my son gave me now that it is so easy to access the songs with the screen in the Tucson. With all the features available this Tucson can definitely be your only car. Finally the Hyundai brand. My daughters each have a Hyundai Elantra and I was so impressed with the reliability I bought a Hyundai Azera that has been a great car for the past four years. Now I have the Tucson and Hyundai has me hooked. I haven't bought four cars from the same manufacturer in my life because none of them have deserved my loyalty, but Hyundai has.
