2008 Hyundai Veracruz SE 4dr SUV AWD (3.8L 6cyl 6A)


Review

This is my first Hyundai and I'm very happy with the vehicle so far. Had thoroughly reviewed and test-driven several crossovers, including the Highlander, CX-9, Veracruz and Pilot. Overall, Veracruz offered the most options, the best warranty, and the highest bottom line value. I'm getting about 16/23 MPG city/highway, which is not bad at all given the vehicle size. If you're in the market for a comfortable mid-size crossover at bargain price, you have to test-drive the Veracruz.


Best Features

Ride comfort, engine power and quietness, 6-speed transmission, seats,all-around visibility


Worst Features

Steering is somewhat sluggish on corners, but that is the price for ride comfort.

2008 Hyundai Veracruz Limited 4dr SUV (3.8L 6cyl 6A)


Review

My wife and I shopped for her new SUV for six weeks. We thought we had settled on a new Highlander until a friend told us about their experience with Hyundai. We stopped at the hyundai dealer at 6pm and left at 8:30 in her new Veracruz! What a great vehicle! It looks great has every option under the sun and drives smoothly and quietly. The first thing I noticed was the fit and finish (both inside and out). The next thing that caught my eye was the incredible amount of standard options. The salesman then told me about the unbeatable warranty and we both felt like we had found our new car (and we hadn't even driven it yet!). Bottom line - great experience, great vehicle, great price!


Best Features

Fit and Finish, automatic rear door, smart key, moon roof and navigation that allows input while moving. Leather feels like very good quality and the protection plan for interior and exterior is a great value. Added the chrome wheels - they make the Veracruz look as good a Lexus! Price! Warranty!


Worst Features

Add a package that includes both navigation and rear seat entertainment (limited to one or the other from the factory).

2008 Hyundai Veracruz GLS 4dr SUV (3.8L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Bravo Hyundai! Nothing beats haggling with car dealers, I spent 3 weeks pulling my dealers leg, and finally settled on a 2008 GLS with the Premium package for $21,000, tax, registration and doc fees were extra. What a steal! Car is wonderfully built with a 6 cylinder engine, roomy, and 3 rows of seating! Big 17" wheels, wood wrapped dash and doors, sunroof, heated seats! At nighttime there is a mood light and cup holders and ashtray lights too! No doubt this car is the envy of all crossovers! Car handles wonderfully. Responsive steering. Never thought I would buy non-American, but I'm glad I did. Test drive one, you won't be disappointed!


Best Features

Accents, powerful engine, heated seats, sunroof, roomy interior.


Worst Features

6 speed transmission can be sluggish at times.

2008 Hyundai Veracruz Limited 4dr SUV (3.8L 6cyl 6A)


Review

So, I reported in Nov-08 that I loved my Veracruz...well, that was before driving it in one of the worst snow storms we've had here in Seattle. This car is amazing in the snow! Mine is only a regular front wheel drive but the electronic stability control and traction control, along with the all weather 18" tires and shiftronic option allowed me to get around in 12" of snow while others were stuck. I was extremely pleased with the way this car managed very icy slick roads. I continue to love it!


Best Features

My new favorite feature is the handling in snow!


Worst Features

I went ahead and had the dealer install a bluetooth unit in the overhead console (where the otherwise worthless sunglasses holder space is) and I really like it. Wish it had been standard.
