"i am the 2nd owner and really enjoy the 2005 tucson. we have only needed to change the oil- no mechanical problems at all. pretty comfortable for long trips, and lots of storage space considering this is the size of a 4 door hatch back! mine is a manual trans and gets pretty good mileage- about 26-28 mpg usually. i realize hybrids and EVs are better, but this was 1/2 the price used."
"06 Tucson owner now for 2 years and 36,000 miles. Overal solid vehicle with the exception of gas mileage. I did have the rear electric window controler problem as well as an interior leather problem but both were quickly replaced by dealership for FREE. Hyundai dealers have been by far the most customer friendly. Solid vehicle for a family who is looking for small SUV without spending $5 K more for a Honda or Toyota with equal features. Will consider another Hyundai if this holds up to pass to my kids at 100,000 miles. Time will tell.""
