2005 Hyundai Tucson Reviews

My door locks are not working all of the time. I am the original owner, but it only has 40,000 miles, so it hasn't gone very far.
I changed batteries on the key fobs a few years ago, when it first started, but there wasn't much improvement. Now that I use the car more frequently, it seems to be happening more often. One day, after not using the car for a day, I went out to the garage, and the car was clicking. The battery was dead. A month earlier, I had a dead battery, and I heard some clicking when I opened the door. The clicking stopped by putting the key in the ignition.

I have brought it in to Hyundai a few times, but since it is an intermittent problem, they have not done anything. One night last week, the door locks would not open for me to get in, but the interior light came on. I had to open the door with the key, but I could not lock the door until I started the engine. It would not lock. This is not the safest of neighborhoods. I have to worry about dead batteries and doors that won't lock. that it is safe to be in.

Would a new security system work if the door locks don't?

I bought a 2005 Tuscon and it has been a great vehicle. Most repair issues were handled under warranty with excellent service. Replaced all brakes at 70,000 miles. I have a 2.7 engine with 4-wheel drive. Gas mileage has been 17 in town and 23 on the road. A little dissappointing considering the small size of the vehicle. The only long term problem has been the air conditioning system. I've had it in numerous times because it would produce marginally cool air and would struggle in 90 degree temperatures. It started blowing warm air last Fall. The warranty had ended and I learned my evaporator core was leaking. I'm having it repaired next week---costs $850.

Problems with locks not unlocking and locking.. What good is a keyless entry??? While riding in the car, many times you can hear the locks going off and on. Will actually do this while the car is turned off. Have left car locked and came back after shopping and car is unlocked... How safe is this?? While car is off for no reason at all the alarm will go on and off. Sometimes have woke up to a dead battery due to this!! Driver seat belt will not alarm if you do not snap the buckle to alert you to buckle up!! Sometimes the car grabs while braking and sounds as if it will fall apart. Had the brakes checked and changed and still have the same problem!! Money wasted!!
Drivers seat at times moves back and forth but not on the part that slides seat back and forth but the just the bottom part of the seat!! Any ideas??? Help is appreciated!!

EXCELLENT SUV!
