I bought this car brand new and have had it for over 5 years. It is a great cat. Everyone is always surprised at how much I can fit into it because it is bigger than it looks. It had been so reliable and I would definitely buy it again.

It has been a real pleasure driving this vehicle. It not only looks great it drive beautifully. It still drives as nice as the first day I drove it off the lot. It drives so smooth even over rough bumpy roads. I get great gas mileage for a crossover (28-33 mpg) and I can't count how many compliments I had gotten over the years about its looks. Love this car.

2012 Tucson Limited

Have owned my 2012 Tuscon Limited for four years - it had 6,000 miles on it when I purchased. Love the comfort and the way it handles. However, the rear camera went out in the first two years (luckily the warranty covered replacement). Exactly two years later almost to-the-day, the camera went out again - this time the warranty was not valid and I was told because it was related to a computer, it was not made to be left out in the cold or very hot temperatures (LOL). Hyundai did finally agree to cover a portion of the cost but will probably be trading it in as cannot afford to replace rear camera every two years.

I have owned two vehicles from Philpott, Daren Hearnsberger is the BEST!!! If you want someone laid back who won't pressure you into something you really don't want and who will actually listen to your wants he is the man to go to. He managed to find me the perfect vehicle for my family. He always kept me informed on the status of things. Whenever I am ready to upgrade in a few years I will definitely be using him again.

Other Crossovers are Way Better

I test drove several SUV's on a weekend and the Hyundai Tucson was by far on the bottom of my list if not removed for consideration. Compared to the other crossovers I test drove the interior of the Tucson was rickety and full of plastic. The entire test drive some piece in the back was squeaking. The salesman even had me pull over in a parking lot so he could check to see if the trunk was closed all the way. Even then the car was squeaking for the rest of the test drive. A lot of road noise and wind noise on the freeway. I test drove a Limited model with back up camera and navigation. While the navigation was good, I had an extremely hard time seeing the screen from the driver seat. The angle was just off so there was a huge glare the entire time. The interior finishes were sub-par at best, mostly plastic. Seems like American cars all have a higher quality interior. Also the steering was numb in the Tucson. We own a Sonata that we really enjoy so we thought we would give the Tucson a try. But apparently the Sonata is probably the flagship car for Hyundai and that is where they put their money because the Tucson could not even compare.

Once you sit in the drives seat, you feel like your part of the car. Here I go it drives like a car, not a SUV. You get the best from both worlds. You have the room to haul all your Christmas gifts and the luxury and comfort you want. Looks red hot and drive red hot.

Louie is Awesome

by from California on December 25, 2012

I love my Tuscon and have no regrets. Performance is great. It's spunky, sporty and fun to drive. Turns corners very smoothly. I love my little bucket.

I've had my 2012 Tucson Limited for 12 months now, nad have loved every driving moment. I've been on long trips and just tooled around the neighborhood. cars features are great and I'm very happy with the ride and the gas mileage. I drove only Acuras and Infinity's prior to this and only notice that the Tucson does not receive the acolades it should which seem to be limited to the more luxurious vehicles. I plan to buy this car once it is off lease (the first time ever after 21 years of leasing) and would recommend it highly.
