2008 Hyundai Tucson Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Hyundai Tucson
Perfect car for my small family!
I have had absolutely no problem with my 2008 Hyundai Tucson. I just hit 100, 000 miles last month, and it is still running fabulously. I am up to date with maintenance, so that helps. The seats stain easily, however I have not attempted to steam clean them. My toddler rides well in it, and has plenty of room. I am so happy with this car. It has been my favorite vehicle I have ever owned!
Wonderful vehicle with great reliability!
I was fortunate enough to buy a low mileage used Limited Edition when I purchased my car. It has been extremely reliable, with no issues, and the features are wonderful! I do have one small issue with driving during the rain as water puddles seem to splash onto a circuit board causing warning lights and squealing, but I cannot be certain that wasn't just damage and not a defect.
2008 Tucson used as an SUV.
Getting up there in miles. Runs well but will need brake and a tune up. Gas mileage has been steady at about 22. No major problems since buying new in 2009. Comfortable seating with plenty of head and leg room in both front and back. Regularly carry a kayak or canoe on the roof without issue. New tires a couple of months ago significantly upgraded ride and lowered noise level.
Dependable, economical adventure car.
The Hyundai Tucson is a reliable and useful car. I love the fact that it is 4-wheel drive and has a good amount of cargo space. It has a very good engine and never leaks oil. My biggest problem with the car is the mpg that it gets (only about 19-20). That is better than large SUVs, but definitely not as good as a sedan or some other high-end compact SUVs.
It is great on the road, it is affordable. Great storage space in a smooth ride.
I love my little SUV. It is very roomy and perfect for a family of 4 [would recommend for two children but not more. ] Drive smooth and does not feel bulky like other trucks or SUVs. I would compare it to a minivan almost. It has great trunk space. Keeps you higher on the road which really helps for someone show it like me.
It's generally reliable and is a fairly good family car.
I like that it's generally reliable, and has enough room for my needs. It fits our family nicely. I'm not too much of a fan of the seats, as they are very uncomfortable for my back, but that I can handle a bit. Overall, it works well, although I am looking forward to having a more updated vehicle in the near future.
Great SUV for a small family.
Has been a good running car. Been reliable, not a very smooth riding SUV. Wish the it was a little more roomy in back seat and cargo area. Has a good air and heating system. The paint on car scratches really easily. Would recommend it for a small family or someone who hauls small items, rear seats fold down.
An SUV for a small family.
The Tucson is the perfect size for a small family. We are able to transport groceries and other shopping with not problem. The 4 cylinder engine is economical and keeps gas prices low. Traveling is not a problem. We also have the option of lowering the back seat for more room to transport things.
It is amazing in the snow.
The day I went to test drive it the battery was dead, found out the alternator was bad in it, so they replaced it, a week later the front axle popped out, had to pay for a tow & have that replaced, than had to have the starter replaced, just the other day had to have the radiator fixed!
The car is very affordable.
The car has lasted me a very long time. It has been very reliable and I have not had very many maintenance issues other than the normal ones. I do the minimal maintenance. If I were not tired of it. I would buy it again. It is a good family car. I would buy it again.
