The best car I've ever had!

2012 Hyundai Tucson GL

One thing that attracted me to buying this car in the first place was how spacious it is. I have used this car for numerous moves and it amazes me every time how much stuff can fit into my car. Also, I have had passengers in my car say that there is surprisingly more room in the vehicle than they would have thought. The car drives really nice on most roads. I have not had any obvious problems with this car. One minor issue I had one time that I got fixed was the volume control on the steering wheel was not working. I have not gotten into any accidents with this car. I have driven it on many long road trips across the country and I cannot complain about discomfort. I love the seats and how comfortable each seat of the car is. My car has the remote start feature. I live in the Midwest where winters can be tough so I LOVE this feature. It is so nice to start my car from my apartment and have the windows defrosted and the car warmed up by the time I need to leave. Overall, I would definitely (and have) recommended this car to anyone looking for a great, reliable, efficient car.

Tucson Hyundai is Amazing!

2012 Hyundai Tucson GL

As of today, the Tucson has 203,000 miles and is still as dependable as the day we bought it. We have replaced the battery, brake pads and fan belt. That's absolutely it! Air conditioning is still cold and has never had any service performed. Regular oil and filter changes plus all levels checked as required. Vehicle has never failed us for reliability in any form.

Great beginner car! Not meant for long-term adult

2012 Hyundai Tucson GL

Poor acceleration, gas mileage, and no Bluetooth for music or calls. I like the comfort, the AC and heat work great, and the neutrality of the car. There is good trunk storage. I have bumped into another car and the car dents and scratches very easily. It also is very fidgety with the features to open garage doors and compass on the rear view mirror

Great car for beginner drivers

2012 Hyundai Tucson GL

It has been all the way. No issues. A few general recalls but has been a great vehicle. I have done the usual regular maintenance. Constantly keep up with oil changes. A great starter car. I would like it to be a little bigger with time the car seems small. If you need more space I'd get the Santa Fe with third row seating.

Excellent gas mileage and comfortable seating.

2012 Hyundai Tucson GL

I adore this vehicle! The seats are comfortable and it rides extremely well. The trunk is very spacious and provides a great deal of storage. The gas mileage is superb- I easily get 30 miles to the gallon. The only problem I have with my vehicle is fitting 3 children in the backseat; it gets very crammed.

- Danielle J

Extremely roomy for the size of the car

2012 Hyundai Tucson GL

It's got good gas mileage for an SUV. I can easily fit my dogs, boyfriend, and anything we may need for a weekend getaway in it. The sound system is pretty good for a standard car, but the Bluetooth is very temperamental. I wish it would stay on Bluetooth every time I turned my car on and off.

A great working family SUV that is fun.

2012 Hyundai Tucson GL

I love that my vehicle has a smooth ride. It can hold a lot of stuff when you fold the seats down. It has great traction control and the fuel economy is amazing. It has an eco feature that you can turn on to save fuel. I also like the sound system. It is a great family car but is also sporty.

- Kerri W

My vehicle is golden in color and provides a comfortable drive.

2012 Hyundai Tucson GL

The Hyundai Tucson is a very reliable and stylish vehicle with comfortable seats and great additions such as a USB drive, CD/radio, and has so much space! It can be more expensive when it comes to gas mileage but overall a reliable and consistent vehicle.

Best car I've ever owned!!

2012 Hyundai Tucson GL

Good gas mileage, reliable, good value for the money. Easy access to change own oil. 2012 model is kind of noisy inside on interstate trips. Wish the suspension was a little stronger. Good pickup for the 2.0 liter engine. Good legroom in rear seat.
