2008 and going strong
I love my Hyundai Tucson. It's been reliable, it's comfortable, fun. With a 10 year, 100,000 warranty, Hyundai builds a quality product.
When I bought my Tucson, I wanted a SUV for the height and carrying capabilities, but didn't want a "tank." I can easily get into my Tucson (I'm only 5'3"), but still can see more than the rear bumper of the SUV in front if me. I can carry 5 comfortably plus plenty of everyday carrying capacity.
I'm not ready to purchase a new car yet, but when I do, the Tucson will be at the top of my list (especially since all the newest safety features are standard!).
