I went nuts when national news 7/5 on every station was talking about
the Kia Sportage & Hyundai Tucson as very poor in protecting from
whiplash & spinal injuries. When I bought the Tucson Premium Package
on 3/1/07, I read their ad stating it was rated at the top on all
points. Now you go to HyundaiUSA.com and see the Sante Fe, Entourage
& Vera Cruz rate high on 5 point crash test, but Tucson got 4 points.
I broke my neck with a drunk driver unlining my C6 & C7 which I
predict bad weather very well with it. After 6 months of traction I
am not intersted with going thru that gain. When I was rear ended at
75 mph a year ago April in the Sante Fe, I felt -0-. Car did very
well with just a cut in half bumper that was replaced. Tail pipe
also, which got me a new muffler too.
So I phone Hyundai USA & I am told by a Witch with a captial B, to
call my dealership, which I did & they told me to call Hyundai since
they have not issued a recall. Again she snips to call my
dealership. So the Manager has the issue now, and I was lied to when
I purchased the SUV.
