"I bought my Tucson brand new in September 2006 and it is still running perfectly. I went with the 2-wheel drive option, and it handles decently in the snowy/icy New England winters-I think the Electronic Stability Control helps. Currently it only has about 33,000 miles and I have not had any major problems. The only little issue I've had is that the gas tank door was stuck, and I took it to the dealer and had it fixed with no problem. My wife and I drove this car from Arizona to Massachusetts in 2007 and had zero problems with it. I think it lacks power, but I'm not towing anything so it's fine for me. I would like to see a little more pick up though. Overall, I've had a wonderful experience with this vehicle and would consider a new Tucson in the future."
"2006 - Gas milage could be better. Wears tires unevenly. Have 136,000 miles on it (all highway miles) and have replace tires 4 times. The back left tire always wears out first. Have had it aligned, struts / shocks checked always ok. Know two other people who have the same issue. If they fix these two issue, I would consider another Tucson."
"Bought it the first year it came out, dad always said "stay away from the first year" "bugs". It handles turns great. I also feel the gas mileage could be a bit better. But it gets about 20-22 M.P.G. So far after 5 years only had usual O.L.F. changes. Would recommend for a single person or couple. If you have kids, get The Santa Fe. Sometimes I feel when I run over the slightest of bumps on roads, even pebbles, the car sounds hollow. Almost like I'm riding in a shell. But it's not enough to give it a bad review.
P.S. Was told when I bought it, it had a REAL SPARE TIRE. Recently got my first flat only to find out it has a donut. Dealership lied.
Would buy it again, but now I'm a little smarter. Can't beat the price for an S.U.V."
"I have had my car for 5 yrs and it only has 50000 miles. I had the transmission replaced 4000 miles ago and now it dies every time I come to a complete stop, and the dealership is always a headache to deal with. I will never buy a Hyundai again due to the problems I have had with this one."
