2009 Hyundai Veracruz SUV GLS 4dr SUV (3.8L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Spotted the VC when I went to look at the Muranos next door. Never entered the Nissan dealership. Most SUV for the money, hands down. I could not believe the build and material quality when I got in it. My other car is a Lincoln Towncar and the VC is as luxurious in every way, and even quieter. Not a full-sized SUV, but seats 7. Could be longer to provide space behind row 3. GLS with premium package should have power passenger seat, and auto AC but doesn't. For 19 mpg combined, could have more power (260 hp). Ford makes a V6 with 355 hp. Europe has it in diesel, US does not. No maintenance issues whatsoever. Shiftronic trans great on hills.


Favorite Features

Price. Element style oil filter: very easy to access/change. Quiet. Warranty.


Suggested Improvements

Full sized spare. Power passenger seat and auto AC in GLS premium package. Automatic leveling suspension for heavy loads. More HP. Grill is kind of ugly.

2009 Hyundai Veracruz SUV Limited 4dr SUV (3.8L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Handles really good but a bit lag when @ green light, helps save gas i guess. Got it @ 110 miles, My wife and I first new car, course i favor it more because she liked it and the safety for our kids, I'm pretty tall so i wish seats go back further for leg room. Matt came with the suv. Heated seat not needed in Hawaii but the a/c is very cold so we might as well use it. lol. Factory speakers inadequate so i upgraded.


Favorite Features

Smooth ride, sunroof, breaking, looks good in the sun, looks good at night, handles great on turns, still smells like a new car, love the safety seats for kids, love the 3rd row, you can plug ipods, tv, etc in the front, middle and rear of the suv, i still think it's a chick's car, but i love it.


Suggested Improvements

Fuel gas mileage could be improved. add more speakers. add another sunroof toward the rear. adjustable break pad/acceleration. Most of these are just my opinion, all in all GREAT SUV.

Review

This is a crossover with the ride of a cruse ship. The car has so many bells and whistles. Have it one week and already over 1100 miles. Finding wonderful things about it every day. Could be the best car ever.

Review

I had been shopping for a new vehicle for around 3 months. I had it down to a Nissan Morano, Toyota Rav4 (6cylinder) and the Toyota Highlander. Driving home from work one night I noticed a Veracruz in the lane next to me and I liked the way it looked and decided to test drive it that weekend. I wound up buying it that day. Driving is a pleasure. Brakes are great, steering it agile, ride is smooth for a SUV. It's quick with it's 3.8 engine and it doesn't take premium gas like the Morano. Why aren't there more of these on the road? I tell everyone it's a hidden secret. Until you test drive one you'll understand why.


Favorite Features

My favorite features are the interior. What a bang for your buck!! I feel like I'm in a luxury vehicle with all the bells and whistles that I have on this car. It's roomy, comfortable and the 3rd row seat is great for kids. They thought of every comfort when making this vehicle.


Suggested Improvements

One improvement would be better gas mileage. Currently I'm getting around 18mpg in the city. I only have 3000 miles so I'm hoping this improves as I take it on longer trips. The last improvement I would make is the seat belt reminder:) - it rings 8 times. I would adjust that down to 4.

Review

After checking out the Ford Flex, the Toyota Highlander & the Chevy Traverse, I went with the Veracruz initially due to the price advantage & the warranty. Now that I've had it a month, I am very glad I got this SUV. It's great to drive, has tons of great features. Hyundai needs to advertise this great SUV!


Favorite Features

Great styling and fun to drive.


Suggested Improvements

Better MPG.

Review

Just purchased this vehicle. It seems to be extremely well built, rides like a dream, has classy interior, great looking. My wife absolutely loves the vehicle. Replaced a 2007 Santa Fe Limited with this unit. Hyundai has really made huge inroads into the Luxury SUV field.


Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage.

Review

Purchased the GLS with Premium package vs. the Limited package due to price differential. The GLS with premium only sacrifices a couple of options. We did not want the NAV package since portable units suffice well. The car rides and handles well and is very comfortable and meets all of our expectations. The only problem encountered was the road tires were overinflated 48 vs. 30 recommended and the spare was underinflated 30 vs. 60psi recommended. The prep should have caught these items. We have taken two trips of over 300 miles and are well satisfied with the driving experience.


Favorite Features

Leather interior, rear A/C, excellent sound system, good acceleration and braking.


Suggested Improvements

Ride could be a little quieter over normal textured asphalt highways.

Review

We've had this Veracruz for about 6 months now and really love the ride and feel. The Best Hyundai I've ever owned. The only complaints I have that are common with Hyundai is a few rattle and squeaks. Gas mileage just plain stinks in the city, we average about 15 with 80% city 20% hwy. I did take a long road trip and we got about 23 with a little stop and go traffic. Overall we are very happy with our purchase.


Favorite Features

Power tail gate, Lots of power, handles great, fairly quiet.


Suggested Improvements

Stereo, squeaks and rattles, improve gas mileage.

Review

Until now it is been a sort of dream. May be because it is my first experience of a SUV, but even though I like it, as I have some good experience on other cars, like MAZDA 323, Renault 21, KIA Rocster ( actually this is a SUV, so I am a litle bit experienced now, and Sephia II, also known as Pectractor, in some Countries.


Favorite Features

the interior is very roomy and, when I am driving I feel a sense of comfort seeing the others cars as from the cockpit of a Boeing 747-400.


Suggested Improvements

I am from Angola, a Country or republic in southwestern Africa on the Atlantic Ocean; achieved independence from Portugal in 1975. So for me the only one improvement I can figure out is only the use of integral 4x4 wheeledrive option.
