2008 Hyundai Veracruz Reviews

I would not recommend purchasing a Hyundai Veracruz. I purchased a 2008 Veracruz and have had nothing but problems. Within the first year of purchase it stalled while travelling at 100km. It suddenly lost all power. Then the timing chain failed. You may feel as I did that you are getting great value for the money. To the contrary, you are getting what you pay for. My recommendation - Buy North American or better yet, buy a Honda. Remember the Pony and Stellar...they haven't progressed much!

I have owned my VeraCruz Limited for two years. The car has been great. Quite ride, smooth transmition. I have had problems with the settings for controlling the power seats and tilt steering wheel. The dealer replaced under warranty the unit controlling both in the steering column at 27,000 miles. Steering is a little sloppy and doesn't give a firm feel of the road. Some minor squeeks in the suspension after 30,000 miles. Overall, the vehicle has been very good and would rebuy the same over again.
