If the automatic transmission does not shift properly and the Check Engine Light illuminates, the speed sensors in the transmission may have failed. The sensors are simple and inexpensive to replace.

Drive Train -- Verified

Prior to replacing the automatic transmission fluid (to improve shift quality), make sure that the transmission fluid level is correct. Also, make sure the computer that controls the transmission has the most up-to-date adaptive programming information. When servicing these transmissions be sure to use fluid approved by Hyundai.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

Hyundai issued two recalls for the airbag control module on certain vehicles; it should be replaced to prevent incorrect passenger side airbag deployment during an accident. For more information on these recalls, please click here» and here».

Hyundai Tucson Reviews

I bought my U.S. built Tucson GL Dec 17, 2013 with 64,000 miles, so I've had it just over one month. It has a 2.0L with 5 speed manual and is FrtWD. I get 28 to 31 mpg in the city (seriously!) - I have not had it on the highway yet. Suspension is stiff and somewhat noisy. Lots of interior room. Rear defroster wasn't working. The 30A fuse was blown and it blows instantly when replaced, and the Air Bag 10A fuse was missing. After replacing it the Air Bag light stays on continually (someone didn't want to fix both problems obviously), so I have a couple of problems that need to be addressed. Purchased it through a dealer and decided to buy a 2 year, 24K limited power train warranty for an additional $400 just in case. Overall I am really enjoying it. It's my first Hyundai but I have had two Ford Escapes previously.

This car has been pretty good. At 50,000 miles the AC compressor went and they diagnosed it as the power steering unit so they both got replaced on warranty. They tried to sell me a timing belt at that time which I thought was premature but I think they needed the money. Now has 70000 and still running good. Will try to find local garage for timing belt. I am kind of disappointed that the AC only lasted 50K, that is poor quality parts.

I have no spark on one of my coil what will be the problem

Although this vehicle rides like a truck for the most part we love it. I would however suggest a few minor improvements. The side view mirrors creat a blind spot when parking and should be either moved slightly or the size and shape altered. The radio screen could be tipped down more as the text is not clearly viewable by the passenger when the driver is unable to turn their head and look at it. The horn is a bit "juvenile" for a tough "truck/car." It would be nice to have a pocketbook "stablizing hanger" on the side of the center console. All of these are minor and are tweaks but I would admit we are very pleased (99%) with our new car and would recommend it to family and friends

my car is 2007 model and reached 110000km, lately it has started giving problem like starting and i took it to the nearby workshop. They said glow plug has completely stopped working. Acordingly glow plug from dealer was asked...however while taking out one of the plug couldnot...so workshop dealer said carbon inside the plug has blasted......what shud we do to replace the plug.
