    My car

    I have owned the car for 10 weeks and am happy with most aspects of it other than the dire fuel consumption. I am getting 20-22mpg which is horrendous for a common rail diesel.

    The driving position is probably the best thing along with levels of standard equipment. However, is this worth getting 20-22 mpg on a diesel? Not in my book.

    Would I buy again? Not in a month of Sundays.

    My car

    I have had my CRDT 2.0L for 10 weeks. I am happy with all aspects of the car except the fuel consumption. I don't know how that lady is getting 32-36mpg, perhaps by pushing the car for the first few mile severy day, but I am getting around 20-24mpg!

    The Hyundai Owners' Forum is inudated with posting about the poor diesel returns. Not just in the UK but worldwide. Would I recoomend the car? Only if you have money to burn for fuel! Be warned!

    My car

    I have three children and thought that I would always have to have a people carrier to fit them all in comfortably, but this is not the case as I have bought a Tucson and there is plently of room for them.

    The equipment level is excellent. The only thing that I would like is for the boot to be a bit bigger, but you sacrifice this to get lots of room for the back passengers. I have never owned a 4x4 before and am very impressed by the drive of the car.

    I definitely recommend this car for good value for money. One garage wouldn't give me a discount, but I called around and got £1000 off - so shop around!

    My car

    In just over 1000 miles since collection, it is returning 32-36 mpg. It's well put together, everything works as advertised I find it a very attractive car in the metal, and the quality of finish is excellent.

    The dealer was first class. The only downside so far is: the trip computer - an absolute waste of time calibrated in US Gallons, and making no sense to me whatsoever.

    It's a good commanding driving position and the inside does not feel cheap or plasticky to me, although the layout of some of the switches seem a little bit illogical, for instance, the fog light switches for back and front are miles away from each other and hard to find without taking eyes off the road to search.

    Having said that, I am very pleased and would not change the car for any of the similar ones I looked prior to purchase.
