Review

Gas mileage could be better. Make sure you get a extended warrantee from Hyundai or a reputable company.

2012 Hyundai Tucson SUV GLS PZEV 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

It’s tough to find negatives with this 2012 model vehicle. Purchased new 09/11, and still reliable as our Honda. Great gas mileage on open road - have seen 29mpg - but only around 21mpg city traffic driving due to low power motor w/6 speed automatic. Ours is a PZEV (partial zero emission vehicle), which sorta makes up for it’s lack of scootability. Over 45k Miles & still original tires and brakes. Quieter than our CRV Honda and smoother ride. Black paint finish still sparkles like new.

Review

I switched from my Chevy to the Tucson Because of the comfort of the ride & gas Mileage However the Noise from the road is Very Poor & gas isn't to bad. I bought a used one & have had some steering issues with clucking noises. But the dealers tell me they can't find anything I also have some vibration I thought it was the tires or rims Bought new tires & had Balanced & Alignment done & it's still there. No other front end parts are bad to cause this issues. Stereo sound is good navigation is slow but ok Bluetooth is good location of controls on steering is ok But could be rethought about Over All : it's ok But won't buy another !

2012 Hyundai Tucson SUV GLS 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

My wife bought this 2012 Hyundai Tucson AWD new. I only drive it occasionally. Although she likes it, I avoid driving it as much as possible. The gas pedal and the brakes are both touchy, so I have a problem with smooth stopping and starting. The suspension is firm but poorly tuned, so the car hops and jolts if the pavement is the least bit rough. Adding to the control problem is poor damping of the steering, so that the front wheels are kicked left and right by uneven pavement. As a result, when the pavement is the least bit rough, not only does the car hop about, it also has a directional wobble that is difficult and tiring to control. The short wheelbase and top-heavy design don't help matters. On the plus side, the car has nice styling, plus a comfortable and attractive interior. The reliability has been great -- no repairs after 55,000 miles
