Great, Sturdy, Reliable Car

I have been very satisfied with my car. Some important things to me when buying cars are radio/phone adaptability, good storage, and being good in the snow. My Tucson hits all of those. After all the years my iPhone connect cable finally died, but before that there was never an issue with the radio. Without a good radio, I really can't drive long distances. I also commute approximately 35 minutes to work, and travel long distances frequently. Living in New England, it snows a lot. This car has safely gotten me through numerous snow storms and never quit on me on any long drive I've made. Owning this vehicle has absolutely led me to consider Hyundai for my next vehicle purchase.

Hyundai vehicles have great safety features.

I love my Hyundai Tucson! I did a lot of research in order to choose the brand of car I wanted to buy. Through reading reviews and consumer reports I choose my Hyundai. This SUV is very roomy, the safety features are great: front and side airbags, the frame is built well for safety in an accident, gas mileage is good, I like sitting high up in my car (I can see everything!) and I believe Hyundai makes their vehicles to last and hold up well. I have had my car for 11 years and outside of regular maintenance, I have had next to no repairs!

Great, smooth ride. Not good for big car seats

I love my car, it is my first SUV, and I'll never go back. It's a little harder to fit a larger car seat in the back. Hopefully my passenger isn't too tall. We've had it for about 2 months now. The only mechanical issue is that my ac flicks on and off. It started off doing it just once every so often but now it happens all the time, and it's summer in Florida. So hopefully that's an easy fix.
