    My car

    i recently wrote a review of owning a tucson but was a petrol cdx as we traded in a ford galaxy the petrol was not bad on fuel but when we came to tow our caravan with it the i say forget it we have now traded the 56 petrol for a 57 2.0 cdx crtd limited and it tows like a dream not even knowing it is on the back so to anyone using these for towing as we have noticed more people are avoid the petrol we was only rinning on our 73% tow and we might aswell pushed it but the diesel is great . i would say we find no difference if fuel from using a petrol to a diesel in these cars so if not towing the petrol is just as good on fuel.

    My car

    I love my Tucson, It grips the road like poop to a blanket! No Matter where I go I enjoy every second driving. I have had a few cars mainly Suzuki. Iv owned the Swift, Ignes, 2 Grand V's one man one Auto, the Alto, two Kia Sedona one Man one Auto The ignes 4 grip and Now the Hyundai Tucson.

    I wanted to buy the New Suzuki GV and had a test drive, loved it. But I found the Gear stick to be in a strange place and changing gear seemed awkward for me. They also had the Tucson on the forecourt. I enjoyed the drive so much I bought it!

    For me this car is not greedy! It’s the Government who are the greedy party in this putting Fuel prices up to a stupid rate. It cos me about £50 ish to fill the tank when I got it and we went everywhere! The tank lasted nearly 2 week. Its costing me about £45 to £50 per week to run and the tank is nowhere near full! That’s not the cars fault!

    The car has everything I need, and dose what I ask. Why pay stupid prices for a so called "name" I hate the snobbery that goes with cars. Take the Freelander in my eyes, it’s an over priced, plastic looking car and the turning circle, no way! it’s so cramped inside aswell.

    The other car that I enjoyed as much as this was the Suzuki Ignes 4 Grip, but it is too small for my large family. I cried when I swapped it but the Tucson has made it all better for me now. I really do recommend this 4x4 it’s a bonny looking car with plenty of HUMPH!

    My car

    Nice to drive, nightmare to own. Bought secondhand in July 2007 form Sunwin Motors of Derby. Engine warning light came on the day I collected the vehicle. Dealer was unable to identify fault and so reset computer/ECU. Engine warning light came on again while on holiday in Italy. Taken to local dealer and they were unable to identify fault. Reset by lifting ground connection (honestly), and it continued to come on and off in random fashion. It was running rough by the time I got back to Calais. Identified as failed injector, one replaced. Sticking brake pedal took 50 days from order to fitting, in which time the MOT expired. Then the warning light came on again. Now the torque converter needs replacing and, oh dear, it's on back order again. Have spoken to Hyundai UK and been to the dealers far too many times. The dealer happy to replace th ecar if i take the hit for depreciation (£2500). I'm very disappointed indeed. And very worried, as I think it's unsafe. Dealer unable to fix. Most unreliable car I have ever owned in 29 years.

    My car

    I have owned this car for 2 months now, and while it does everything I need of it, I must say I am VERY disapointed with the fuel consumption. I was initially going to buy the 4WD version, however after talking to a couple of previous owners of these, i decided on the 2WD version on the grounds that hauling 80 kilos less weight around would give better mpg.

    Alas, this does not seem to be the case, and at least with a 4WD version I could have some fun.

    That is the only negative I have for this car. I have owned a LOT of different cars in my time and I find this comfortable, safe, quick enough for an SUV and good fun to drive. I have 2 kids and they have no complaints about the comfort in the back, in fact they find the extra leg room in a vehicle like this makes for a far more comfortable journey. BIG smiles all round really.

    As far as the fuel consumption/running costs go, I blame the government anyway. Who else pays so much tax on EVERYTHING??
