"I have only heard great things about Hyundai. Bought it 2 years ago used so I expected some maintenance. Still owe $5,500 and have put $3,000 into car between alternator, all plugs, wires, all struts, sway bar links, both crossbars. The whole suspension has caused me trouble and I don't get it. I'll never buy again. I've had GMC and Chevy and never had to replace any of these things at 180,000"

"I've owned my car for over 9 years. I have not had any major issues but all the little issues are driving me crazy. The first thing that broke was the ESC in the second year I owned the car. It was fixed under warrenty. Then my CD player broke. It was also replaced under warranty. then 13 months later the new CD player broke and they would not replace it because replacement parts are only under warranty for a year. In year 4 my driver side door handle broke. they would not fix it cuz the bumper to bumper warranty expired. A year later my passenger door handle broke in the exact same way. If current owners look close at their door handles i'm sure most of them will see that the handle is pulling away from the body of the car- aka broken. The left turn signal sticks when it is hot, the motor that switches the vents is broken so I'm stuck in window defrost mode, the shocks to the rear window no longer hold the window up, and a sensor in my seat belt is bad and causes my air bag warning light to be on constantly. Now I know why this car was a few thousand dollars cheaper than its competitors."

"I bought this car from a Laredo dealership years ago and have lived to regret it. Had low miles only 44k but has broken down twice. I take good care of my cars. Had cars older and more miles without breakdowns. Constant trouble now trading it in for a newer car. Never get a Hyundai again! Paint scratches too easily and no warning with engine trouble. Parts more expensive because not widely available, especially if living in Mexico."

"This was the first New car I ever purchased. I've owned it for 10 years and it has never let me down. My only complaint was the lack of power... Although she got me thru some pretty tough winters in Northern NY. We will be selling it soon to some lucky person since our family has grown and it no longer fits us comfortably."

"First time I saw a Tucson on the road, I said to myself " that is the SUV perfect for me". The time came to get a new car, I acquired a 2006. I could have not made a better decision. Not big, not small at all, handles beautiful, comfortable seats, leg room is better than most. Normal maintenance, no big issues. I feel very safe when driving my Tucson in any weather conditions. So far is 123,000 miles and runs beautiful. I hope to be able to keep it for a very long time. This car "owes me nothing"!"
