Hyundai's introduction

This car has been a great daily. It ride's like a luxury car- its suspension floats over bumps, and the shifts are smooth. Its seats are comfy, and there is much room, except in the third row. The interior aged nicely, and the car blends in, even in 2023. No unexpected repairs with the car at 126,000 miles. It's been a great car. The power is adequate for its size. She roars when you push the gas, and it's pretty impressive how she moves, especially at higher speeds. Both my wife and I agree it feels faster than her Chevy Equinox. However, we tend to use Equinox more when trying to save on gas. It has many features that still don't come standard today. For instance, our Veracruz has a power-adjustable steering wheel and 7-way power seats on both front seats, while the Equinox doesn't. The only thing I like less is the brakes; they don't stop as fast as you think, so if you get one, allow yourself more time to stop. Just keep up with the oil changes and follow the owner's manual, and the Veracruz will run great. The Veracruz was one of Hyuandi's best offerings to attract people to the new brand. The Veracruz has fantastic features that still don't come standard today. I still find more things I didn't know about the car to this day! Excellent car, sad Hyundai doesn't make it anymore


I love my Veracruz!!

In my opinion, this is the best car I have ever owned I am almost 60 years old so I’ve had several vehicles in my life . This is the best car that I have ever driven, that I have traveled in,it us reliable, It has checked off every single box except one; when I got it, it didn’t have remote start; easily rectified. I had it taken into a place that that my local Hyundai dealership recommended…. had it installed and now it’s perfect! It’s a beautiful vehicle and it rides Wonderful…. There’s nothing bad to say about it …. I love love love my Hyundai VeraCruz !!


My first new used car

I love this vehicle. I used to own a car. This vehicle make you feel like you are above everyone and I live the way it drive. The vehicle drive so smooth yet it feels like I'm driving in a beefy vehicle.

No compensations after car stalled in the hwy

My 2012 Hyundai Veracruz stalled on the hwy in June 2018. And after a year long waiting after sending the complaint against the Hyundai Canada, Hyundai block any negative opinions choosing only positive ones and have no choice but 'Share' only. What a worst company in Canada Feb 2020


Love it

Nice car for the money.v6 power. Interior great. Quiet ride. Family vehicle. Many creature comforts. Great warranty. Good value. Wish it was still produced. Nice car


Nicest car I've owned

I am grateful to again have a car with heated seats and programmable settings for steering wheel and mirrors. I love it! I would like it better if I could synch my cell phone, but we'll figure it out!


In the shop

A pretty car, great interior, good ride. Oil pan problems. Broke down within a week. Has not been right yet. Might be a lemon. Talking to the attorney general about it tomorrow


Drive shafts

Just want everyone to know that if you own a 2012 Hyundai Veracruz and when you put it into D or park and hear clunk. It's the driveshafts and the Dealer has a solution that they don't share. It's washer spacers to be installed on drive shafts and problem goes away. Push dealer and had mine installed for nothing. Saving you $400.00 dollars
