2008 Hyundai Tucson GLS 4dr SUV w/XM (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Bought this 10 months ago and am looking to trade it in even though I know I will take a loss. has tons of cargo space and leg room, but the motor works too hard. Doesn't feel like it shifts properly. Not very darty--takes a long time to accelerate. Gas mileage for me has been consistently at 18 miles and less. I have never gotten even 19 mile per gallon as stated. 14 gallon tank is small--feels like I am always at the gas station. radio and amenities are positioned well for a comfy ride. Great heat and A?C but is hard to hear radio over it--not strong speakers

Best Features

Roomy,with lots of storage. I love the color, too! It looks good! Unfortunately, good looks is about all it has going for it.

Worst Features

It needs a tougher exterior. It dings and dents very easily. Also, If I let the gas get too low, it will only fill up to 7 gallons. I think the sensor is broken. Overpriced for such a vehicle that does not seem too powerful, and is a gas hog, Blind spot is behind drivers seat.
