Very Happy Recommend!

Very happy with our purchase. We have about 60,000km on the vehicle now (Yes Canadian). I am very pleased with the quality, performance, and reliability of the vehicle. We've had the Tuscon in the extreme Canadian Winters -40c, (-40F). Unplugged, and it has started without issue. I remember we were nervous when we bought the vehicle with the GDI 2.0L motor originally, but it has been fantastic since new. I would highly recommend the Tuscon to a young or older couple it is truly the perfect family vehicle. Great price and great reliabililty.


My car

My car still have warranty on it. Taken it to shop a few time they said nothing was wrong with have it all on video now .


I finally have a comfortable, safe car

After getting out of a nightmare that I was afraid to drive with another dealership here in Midwest city I finally feel safe and uncomfortable, I’m so happy with my car I don’t really have the words to express it.
