Total reliability and comfort.

I have owned my Hyundai Tucson for about 7 years now and it has never needed much maintenance (other than the routine maintenance). It has been extremely reliable and very comfortable to drive for all of these years. The only thing I wish it had was an outside temperature gauge that I could see on my rear view mirror or dashboard. Otherwise, I would highly recommend this car to anyone and everyone looking to buy.

Hyundai Tucson - very reliable and comfortable!

The vehicle performs very well most of the time. It is very easy to get around in and a very comfortable for long or short distances. It also has Bluetooth set up which is always a good thing. It is also very good on gas to be a smaller SUV. I have had my car for about three years and haven't had any major problems with the vehicle. I would highly recommend looking into getting one for anyone at any age!

The back seats fold down to allow easy transport for big items.

I love the size of my car. It makes it easy to park, get around the city, but it's also perfect for trips to the mountains, or when I go skiing. The speakers are nice, and everything should work as it should. The only feature that I do not favor is the fuel efficiency of the car. I feel as if I am always stopping for gas.
