Great little suv

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Hyundai Tucson GL Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

I traded in a 1999 Pathfinder for this used 2005 Tucson. So far it does most of what I expected it to do. I did loose some cargo and tow capacity with the trade, but the extra MPG makes up for it. It could have more road handling. You don't want to push it too hard into the corners. The stock stereo had to go. I couldn't hear it on the freeway if all the windows were down. The tie downs in the back could be a bit stronger or moved off of the cover.

This is a great truck. It meets my needs for something fun to drive, comfortable, and with a good basic sound system. It meets my husband's needs for something that looks "rugged" that can handle hauling all of our camping equipment for our trips to the North Shore. It handled great through the MN winter and is a fun truck to zip around in.

Love my 05 tucson

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Hyundai Tucson GL Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

I've driven 05 Tucson for 4+ years now, and I've been very happy. So far just changing wears and tears like tires, breaks, oils, wipers, belts, etc. No major problems at all so far after 71,000 miles. My old Volvo usually cost me annually $2-3000 for major repairs with constant halts on highways. Happy to get rid of it. Living in East coast, went through a few big snow storms, and no problems at all with 2WD(front), and ETS always helped me staying on the road. I also took many long trips to Chicago, Main, Virginia, etc, and very comfortable with 5 people in the car with luggage. I also used this car a lot for moving, excellent when frnt&rear seats completely go plat, lots of cargo space.

I love my car, though it looks like a rhinoceros. Lots of interior room, great Heat & A/C. Smooth, quiet ride. Inexpensive enough that I am not paranoid about keeping in shiny. Good automobile for a gal looking for a SUV.




Driving 2005 tucson

Vehicle: 2005 Hyundai Tucson GL Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

I have been driving 2005 Tucson GL for 2 and a half years now, and it has been great experience! Just a regular oil changes and brake pads after 40,000, but I think it's becasue of hilly areas that we're in. We (my wife and I) drove it around quite a bit, to Chicago to Virginia, and it's really fun to drive both city and highway. It's still quiet, and has lots of room. I was so please with lots of space (both rear seats and a passenger side seat can be completely folded) when I moved after the purchase. Mine is a front wheel drive, but it was quite fun to drive on snowy roads, especially electric stability system was great when I drove the hilly drive ways.




Would buy again
