having owned this diel cdx since may 2005 I can only say NEVER AGAIN noisy gearbox, windscreen wipers that screech, apparently according to hyundai customer service these are built in faults. And as for fuel consumption, well a tanker in tow is the answer. So in a nutshell, indifferent dealers, a laughable customer service dept, and fuel consumption that rarely exceeds 25mpg in spite of the hyundai modification, which was even denied. Never never again, they should be sued for totally misleading fuel figures, As for the five year warrantly, somehow I doubt its worth the paper its printed on, anyway check the dealer servicing costs, these also hurt
We have just parted company with our Tuscon after nearly 30k miles--our circumstances have changed and we have bought a Isuzu Crew cab. This has been a really good car,no problems at all not even one squeak. As for running costs there hasnt been any apart from service (the last one was £150 at Hyundia garage,but quotes upto £295--so shop around)and of course fuel which has returned at 35 miles mph over all.We consider this acceptable,and about what you would expect from this type of car. The service manager said they were expecting computer disc which would fine tune the fuel pump and increase mph and he hoped it would be foc next service So we have been pleased with the car,it was good to trade and we would have another no problem
I have only had the car (a 54 model) for a month and was very puturbed by the fuel consumption as displayed by the 'computer'. I am an economical driver who averaged 55mpg from my Skoda Octavia - and that without hanging around. I knew that the fuel computer read in US mpg but could not get it over a displayed 24mpg (about 30mpg UK) so I started to measure the fuel consumption brim to brim when refilling the tank. This gave me a low of 33mpg and a high of 41mpg! Just ignore the fuel computer. Seating position and comfort is fantastic as is space, value and equipment level.
I bought the Tucson 2.0 Diesel in Aug 2005 and like the car overall with its high seated position, fairly refined interior and spacious cabin – ideal for teenage kids, their bags and sports stuff. However as with all reviews the MPG is way low against Hyundai’s quotes and to boot the computer MPG is based on US gallons!! I’ve done 10K now and its still poor. On re-calculation (use MPG*1.26417 ) I work out that I’m getting 20 Urban only, 255 miles/tanks and about 25 MPG on Combined, 31 MPG at best…that’s under the 31.7 quoted by Hyundai for urban alone!!! Where did they get their figures????? I’m presently going back to Hyundai under Warranty hopefully to look into this matter, but given earlier reviews here, can’t see much change. I recomm the Tucson if you want a 2WD come 4WD that drives like a car with 4WD capability when needed BUT NOT if your concerned with MPG performance – you won’t be happy!!
