Pros

Car has always been reliable, never broken down on me. Anytime i've needed to go somewhere it has always started and never given me trouble.

Cons

Not a ton of power to run off of.

Well Made Car! — Everything about the car is great other than the styling of the exterior, the car itself runs perfectly and I would definitely consider getting another Hyundai. Great gas saver also ran back and forth between Liberty and Kingwood many times on one tank of gas. Overall Great buy!

Great Car For A Small Family — Great price for the package you get. It doesn't have a lot of power, but it is light on the road so it is adequate. The lack of power certainly helps this CRV/SUV get 20+ MPG which is good in that category. It makes a great car for a small family.

Good All Around Vehicle — Excellent ride and braking. EBS and Stability control work well. Comfortable seats for long drives. Decent rear seat and cargo room. The 4 cylinder is a little underpowered but gets moderately good mileage for a sport ute.

Cons

acceleration, tranmission.

Looks Good But Needs Work, Not A Pos Though. — Has very bad acceleration. It handles well off road for the most part. The manual shift thing will shift on its own if you hit redline. it doesn't roll too much. and the visibility is good. both the window and the back door can be opened. not alot of trunk space.

Pros

Reliable, fuel efficient, small and easy to drive.

Cons

This is only my personal preference but the front end is kinda ugly with the lights in the bumper, but thats the only thing.

Awesome Little Hatch That Could — One word, Wow....... My mom owns this one, I've driven it couple times, handles like a sports car, look and feels like a SUV, and roomy like a Minivan on the inside. This vehicle's body stays flat, no matter how hard I corner it. About 5000 kms now and no problems with it. Overall, such a tiny car but lots of room for five, and easy to drive for long trips.

I'm Glad To Own This Car! — Diesel engine + AT = best choice for relaxing driving...and it gives good fuel consumption! The main idea of this car for me - economy) Cost of ownership is not so high - but it's higher in compare with my previous car - Hyundai Getz 1.6.

Love My Tuscon — Love my new suv, of course i work at a dealership so i see a lot of cars, and for a small suv, it rocks. I have the V6 instead of the 4 cy, && i wouldn't reccomend to anyone the 4. underpowered to me. i like the old body style (the one i have) over the new body style (2010)

My Car — Good mileage.Excellent safety. smooth drive. Lots of space inside. reasonable cost. acceptable maintenance. This is kind of a car you definitely want to drive, whether inner city drive or long road trips. I tried it on every climate in Ontario and its response was great.
