Faults:

The one and only SUV with least price and good design. It's even powerful with 4WD. I recommend to go ahead with this SUV instead of buying a large used one of another brand.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Nice car... I rented one while in Michigan. We got this car as the first people to rent it. It had 12 miles on it. My only concern was, about halfway through the weekend a check engine light comes on, the car only had about 120 miles at this point. Seems way too soon for things to start malfunctioning. I have no idea what the code was but it was still a little disappointing.

Scared to death. Tucson drivers be aware of faulty throttle sensor. It was not a great experience driving through the mountains and having my vehicle not respond. Even braking was difficult because the engine would rev high. Fortunately, my fiancee put it in neutral and we had a side road to enter. He even pulled out the fuse box to reset the vehicle, but that did not work. We had to flag down a motorist to send a message for a tow truck. The road side assistance only covers 100 km away from a dealership, so make sure you do not travel beyond 100 km because you will not be compensated, if anything goes wrong. AMA is a must for road side assistance. I expected full compensation for our traumatic ordeal, but that did not happen. The dealership fixed my vehicle because it was under warranty, but my sense of security has not been met. A month has gone by and full compensation for towing has not been done. I am very disappointed because I really enjoyed driving my vehicle.
