Default Time to make the Wife happy...

So....we've been looking at Audi, BMW and Lexus for my wife's next daily driver.

Needs to have at least 4 doors.

Suddenly she mentioned that she fancies this...Hyundai Tucson

Anybody have any 1st hand experience with this vehicle??

All thoughts welcomed...

She wants a Tucson!? Get the woman a 5 series or an E class. If she's dead set on getting an SUV get her a G class...

My girlfriends mom has a Tucson, its not really an SUV, more of a crossover. Build just like every other Hyundai, creaky plastic and an engine that excessively vibrates after 50k miles.

I dont know what it is about Hyundai, even the 'sporty' models bore me, but hey, this is about your wife's next car..

how about a BMW X3, or X1..?

ROFL!!

Agreed. I was quite surprised when she went from the other choices to a Hyundai.

Thanks Gents...

If you plan on keeping it for any significant length of time you DO NOT WANT A HYUNDAI for ANY REASON.

Once it's 2 years old or has 30k miles on it ditch it.

Redfisher thought TBJ would have told you to get the 2011 Jeep Cherokee.

Nah, wouldn't recommend a new Grand nor a 1994 Toyota Paseo to anybody considering a Hyundai. The sheer awesome would simply overwhelm them, and their heart would explode.

So how do they offer those 100k miles warranty? I have never owned one of those, but just curious, if they are really that bad like you guys say...

Get her a 90 s s10 blazer door and and have it redone . Cheaper and the 4.3 engine is awesome and you can still work on it. Or the KIA s are solid had one for 10 years and still running great

Probably list a lot of parts as "consumable".

Honda or Acura.

They last a long time.
Minimum break downs.

Leaves more money for RC stuff.

Forward thinking

I have a Mazda CX-7 and I like it.  Stay away from the Hyundai.  The Toyota Venza, Lexus crossovers, and the BMW X5's are very nice.
