Big, roomy SUV, but has a few issues with age.

2011 Hyundai Tucson GL

My Hyundai Tucson has been reliable over the years, yet has had a few problems. It is been a great family car for driving carpools to school and has lots of trunk space for everyone's gear. There's lots of legroom, both in the front seats and back row. The car had no problems at the beginning, but over the years has begun to wear down. It does not drive very smoothly'I'd describe it as a car that rumbles a lot, especially on bumpy roads with potholes. It has occurred a few times'though rarely' that the breaks have been problematic. When you try to press the breaks there's a bit of resistance on the brake pedal and it shakes and pushes your foot back up. It feels the way breaks do when sliding on ice or snow, even if there's no ice or snow around. My Tucson model has also had a few recalls over the years, so we've had to bring it into the shop a lot. Additionally, a few times the key has gotten stuck in the ignition and it does not turn off. Overall, I have had a lot of problems with the 2011 Tucson model, but have heard that the newer models have solved a lot of these issues.

My favorite used car I've ever had!

2011 Hyundai Tucson GL

I love my car! It was a hand-me down from my sister so the car already had a few thousand miles on it but it still works amazingly! The interior is super roomy and comfortable. The seats are hard to clean if they get stained and water does leave a stain. However, I still love the car. It rides so smoothly and I feel comfortable driving. The car is amazing on gas as well. It doesn't cost a lot to fill up the tank and it lasts a little over two full weeks with average driving. It is definitely my favorite car and I will be buying the newer models when the time comes.

Hyundai Tucson highly recommended

2011 Hyundai Tucson GL

This has been the most reliable car I've ever had. The alternator did just go out but that's with 155,000 miles on it. That's about the only thing I've had to do to it besides tires and oil changes. It rides smooth and pulls my jet ski. The only thing I don't like it that it is not 4 wheel or all wheel drive so it does not do well in the snow at all. But it does get good gas mileage so I guess that's the trade off. Overall I would highly recommend the Tucson.

This is not a very good car for adults, it would be great for teenagers

2011 Hyundai Tucson GL

the car feels very cheap right when you see it and get inside. The interior is all very cheap and plastic. The air vents and other plastic things broke from normal everyday use and leather on the steering wheel peels off constantly. The windshield collects a lot of dust on the inside. When driving, the cabin is so loud that you can barely hear anything. There are various mechanical tissues I've had to deal with. Exterior features are cheap and easy to break.

Storage Success from an Unexpected Car

2011 Hyundai Tucson GL

My car is wonderful, comfortable, very reliable, has lots of storage room and has never really has major problems. I love how the back seats fold down to almost completely flat resulting in a very large trunk storage space. And how there is ample room in the extra tire compartment in the trunk for emergency necessities (never needed them, but it's nice to have them just in case); and off season car equipment like scraper and shovel.

I love my car. It hasn't had any major issues and it's great on gas!

2011 Hyundai Tucson GL

I really love my car. I have had very little issues. My AC went out and I had to get a condenser for it. I recently replaced my CV Axle and brakes. I just got new tires. The best thing about my car most mechanic can fix on it. My car is great on gas which I love because I drive an hour to and from work 5 days a week.

A Hyundai that's in dire need of inward repairs.

2011 Hyundai Tucson GL

My vehicle is very reliable. It starts right up when I am ready to go on with my day. The only problem that I am now experiencing is that it sounds like an old raggedy truck. With a few repairs, it will be like new. The body is in excellent condition, so just looking at it would have you thinking that I just bought it.

Cute, reliable Hyundai Tucson

2011 Hyundai Tucson GL

My. Hyundai Tucson is very reliable. I love everything about my car. It has a lot of amazing features as well as a nice interior. It drives really smooth and I love it. I have no complaints. There's great trunk space for loading shopping bags. This is a great family car. The seats are very comfortable.

Good 4 the money. Just be prepared for things 2 go bad when 100k miles is up.

2011 Hyundai Tucson GL

The only major problems were crappy batteries and after 7 years the compressor for air conditioning went. Also after 7 years the sway bar had issues. As soon as the car hit 100,000 miles things started going of course when the warranty was done. Engine still looks great. I would buy this car again.

Fierce mid-size SUV with plenty of space for fluffy people

2011 Hyundai Tucson GL

Love the space, the features such as Bluetooth connectivity,. Easily holds a various sized walkers. One drawback is the back seat does not fold down flat. Also love the ecoboost feature. It has all wheel drive which came in handy on a recent trip to the coast as we were able to drive on the beach.

Hyundai Tucson: A model of reliability

2011 Hyundai Tucson GL

I haven't had many problems with my vehicle over the years. It has been reliable and exactly what I expected when I bought it. I'm a big guy and there is plenty of headroom. I sometimes wish I had a newer vehicle with a few of the upgrades that now come standard on many autos.

- Kevin D

Great car, just maybe a few minor adjustments.

2011 Hyundai Tucson GL

I really like my car but I wish there was built in navigation system, sunroof and it came with all wheel drive. That being said, the car has great gas mileage, good handling and if I could go back I would definitely buy it again. I call her my first 'adult' car.

- Kristina L

Very nice and comfortable car.

2011 Hyundai Tucson GL

Very reliable car! Haven't had any issues with it. The car is a good size and very good on gas! The seats are really comfortable but the headrests sit pretty far back. You can do hands-free calls over the speaker and you can connect your from to play music.

- Madeline S

Tuscan, roomy w/ great gas mileage

2011 Hyundai Tucson GL

This car has great gas mileage and has plenty of room for cargo. Have not had any big mechanical issues with this vehicle at all. The air conditioner seems to make a squealing noise and seems to blow even when it's not turned on, but overall a good vehicle.
