I wanted a mid-sized SUV in April of 07' I am 6'6" tall and had to be concerned about size, comfort etc. And, I did not want to sepnd more than 35K ona vehicel. I've always purchased Toyotas, Volvo's, SAABs, and so I wanted reliability. This Veracruz will be two years old in May with 33,000. I have not had opne problem with it. I've added a front end visor to it to minimize being hit by bugs, small stones, etc. I've got the sunroof, leather, 8 CD player. I just wish it had an external thermometer in the dash readout. I'm surpried it does not have it. We've used the third row seating three times and once the people were seated they were comfortabel although entering and exiting is a task. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone searching for reliability,good lines and a sporty look. The great thing is with the back seats down I can get my 9 foot fly fishing rod in the vehicle without breaking it down.

Best SUV Value

After 5 months of SUV research, my wife and I purchased 07 Veracruz AWD Limited in May 07. We now have 11K miles on it and no problems. Great SUV, well worth the price ( $33,000). Besides being very comfortable, safe, and quiet to drive, it is great looking and the perfect size. We just got back from the snow, and the AWD performed great, did not need chains, and we went thru heavy snow with ease. The only thing I added was gold lettering and a front end mask to give it a more sporty look. I highly recomend this vehicle

I bought this car hoping this vehicle would last me many years...at least 10. However within 2 month of my purchase my car wouldn't start if I let it sit for more than 2 days. I had to have my car towed to the car dealership. They stated my battery was bad and put a new one in. Within 2 weeks my battery was dead again. The car dealership again replaced my battery. On the 3rd trip to the service department my husband made them keep the car for several days to see why my battery was being drained. On the 3rd day they discovered that my car had a bad starter cylinoid (I don't know how to spell it but that they said was wrong with it). Well after that was replaced my car did GREAT. I LOVE my car. I LOVE the DVD system, I LOVE having leather and a moon roof. I LOVE that I was able to get all of the above for under $35,000. However about 10 month later (when the weather got cold) my car wouldn't start again. I am very frustrated and am about to trade my car in. I need a reliable car and this one has failed me.

Hyundai Veracruz - great 7 passenger vehicle without having to drive a minivan - feels and drives like a sedan. Bought the car in June and by October I put 12,000 miles on the car. From someone who does a LOT of driving, this car is a joy.

I bought my Veracruz in May of 2011, after looking at the Honda Pilot and the Toyota Highlander. Overall, I'm absolutely happy with the car for all the reasons that drove me to buy it in the first place: it's roomy, well-furnished inside, it runs well and it shares a lot of the same styling with the Lexus RX350 of the same years. I've loved the 2nd row separate A/C - it's a nice feature. My only beef is that the car absolutely does not live up to its billing as far as mileage goes. It's very easy to calculate the mileage because the car has an MPG tracker on the dashboard. There is no way this car gets 16-17 mpg city. It's more like 12-13. If you're on a straight shot open highway you'll get 22-23. One of the reasons I bought this vehicle over the pilot is that I'd heard the Pilot's gas mileage was not as good as advertised. I was sorry to find that the same applied here. I do a mix of highway driving (with traffic) and city driving, and my combined mileage is rarely ever better than 17mpg. Buyer beware.

It is May 1st, 2007 and I have just made may my Veracruz purchase. This vehicle is outstanding! I have read all the cons concerning the Veracruz and frankly, I do not understand anyones complaints. Quite a bit of car for the money... I personally believe this car to be better looking than its Lexus competitor. In fact, I never thought the Lexus RX to be a particular beautiful automobile. Its styling has always been a bit porky. The Veracruz offers just as much and is much sleaker in style. Performance is greater, with better acceleration, when using the clutch free 6 speed manual transmission! My Veracruz has both manual and automatic! Wow! I am up to 18 miles per gallon, city driving. Just 24 hours old. Expect better when broken in.

Most pricey Hyundai and worth ever penny

We drove everything, Mazda CX9, GMC's Arcadia, the new Buick, Honda, Toyota, Nissan, and Ford crossovers and felt the overall package offered from Korea was hands down the best choice. Not the prettiest, not the fastest and certainly no WOW factor in the driveway, but honestly the most car for the money. The Limited Veracruz from Hyundai is an wonderful value. Standard features like tri-way air, heated seats and both power, ease of access to 3rd row ( GMC study this), XM radio, electronic tailgate, more airbags than you can count, stability control, finger tip control on steering, a conversation mirror ( wife likes that), rear backup sensors ( std. on Limited), High Intensity Head Lights, 100,000 mile power train warranty and too much more to list here. Ergonomics are good, well thought out and easy to operate. It is the class of the new crossover class.
