Any Tucson owners out there?

This Newsgroup seems to be very light on Tucson ?'s. Does that mean there aren't many of us out there? Or, is the Tucson not selling well?

I just bought a 2007 SE with heated seats, sunroof, 6 CD changer and a week after we had it we got a foot of snow covered in ice. So out we went out in it & I could not get it to fishtail, the ESC was flashing away & I slammed on the brakes to spin it in a KMart parking lot that was empty and the ABS pump kicked in. WOW! No salide,fishtail, just stop. She showed me I am safe in her. The lumbar seat with heat on a -16 degree day is one way to start it out right. And how fast the heat inside kicks in is amazing. Mirrors melted in 3 minutes as advertised.
I keep my headlights with foglights on as many Ohio drivers do so freeway as well as streets you are seen! Get out of the car & all lights go off! That's Hyundai, never a dead battery!
Tearful good bye to my 2002 Sante Fe which was a great auto but my Tucson is being treated like a millionaire with plenty of folks staring at me & I wave at them thru the open sunroof. Only problem was stopping under a freeway entrance sign with 7 pigeons on it & we got pooped on! What a laugh that was!!!!
It has their weird odometer, with trip milage, tells you how many miles you can drive til fillup, MPG (19.5 and I am coming up on 500 miles). even a clock in military time that I used as a cop. The fold down seats with no removing headrests as I had to do with the Sante Fe is great. The new style of grocery bag holder is great also. Then th ultimate: kick husband into back seat behidn me as I ought a cherry tree & it fit from the dashboard on the back of the front seat folded down, out the back window! Saved me $75 bringing it home vs delivery.

Why wait? Set the seat switch to "on", set the defroster on in case of frost, and use a remote starter. Most can also be programmed to turn on the rear defroster.

Count me as another happy '06 Tucson owner, and as another Greg. Mine is a GLS, AWD, automatic. I've had it since May, it has just gone through its 15,000 mile service, and I'm averaging 21mpg with the 6 cyl.
It's been great all winter. I love it.

I bought an '05 LX V6 (all options except sunroof & 4WD) from a co- worker who had it for 18 months & 6100 miles. No issues. Smooth daily driver & musical instrument hauler.

I take back the "no issues" comment. My ONE issue: 6CD changer does not play MP3s. Boo hoo!

My '07 Sonata with the Infinity 6 CD changer does. Of course, electronics change every three days to something new so that may be the difference.

I have the V6 automatic and only get in the high teens driving about 75% highway. The MPG is my only gripe. Acceleration is fine and we are very pleased with its storage capacity and other hauling capabilities.

Hello Greg,

The question that immediately comes to my mind is how fast do you drive when on the highway? Could also be that you are in a lot of stop and go traffic when in the city?
High teens seems quite poor, especially when the EPA estimates for the FWD and 4WD are 20/26 and 19/24, respecitively, city/highway.

places for quite some time and driven a variety of vehicles over that period. In all cases except the Tucson, my mileage has averaged in the upper end of the EPA range. For example my current other vehicle is rated at 22-31 and I get 27. As you pointed out the Tucson is rated at 19-24. I've owned it since November of '05 and driven it 15,000 miles with an average MPG of 18.

I've also got the V6 automatic, AWD, and I am averaging 21.5 mpg. I usually put about 20,000 miles per year, combination city/highway. My Tucson is currently at 17,000 miles. Acceleration is excellent and it is plenty big enough for what I use it for.
