Sorry for the n number of questions, just curiosity killing the cat.
Do you know any 2017 Tucson owners in Bangalore? Can you PM me and share their handles or contacts? Wanted to check something with them.

I live in Bore, and am considering the *petrol* Tucson base model. Any idea whats the Petrol Tucson's *actual* fuel efficiency in city and in highway (as opposed to the ARAI figures in the brochure or what the instrument cluster says)?

Any *Bangalore* Tucson owners in this forum? You could help me by stating *actual* Blore city FE figures (given Blore's notorious traffic), I'd be much obliged. (Based on, you know, fuel tank top-up to top-up method)

Default Re: Hyundai Tucson - 138,000 kms done and front left axle replaced

I drove a 2005 Tucson few years back and very much liked it. I always wanted to own one since then, but the priorities were always different. We have a requirement for a third car and I am considering a Tucson here. This will be driven mostly on highways to commute between Bangalore and Erode (250 kms one way). We'll not do more than two trips in a month and so monthly running will not be more than 1000kms. I prefer a softroader/SUV and don't want to spend a lot on the car as it won't be used much.

I heard about a 2006 Tucson on sale through a friend and below are the details of the car.

- 105000kms on the odo, second owner
- Clutch, Timing belt and Turbo replaced
- Front suspensions replaced
- Back suspension bush replaced
- Body and interiors are good
- Piston rings are new
- New headlights
The above changes are done at 95,000 kms.

- Tyres (stock size) ran around 7500km after tyre change
- Interiors are stock with an after market audio system

I haven't seen the car yet as I had to travel around 200km to check it. My trusted mech spoke to the owner of the garage where the vehicle is being serviced and got the above details. The garage owner claims that the vehicle is in clean stock state now and would run without any issues for next few years.

I've been reading most of the Tucson related discussions here and this helped me a lot in understanding more about this vehicle. From my understanding most of the expensive parts replacement is already done in this car (going by what they claim). If this turns out to be true, is this car a good buy considering my requirement. If this is a good option, what all other things I need to check before closing this?

@anandpadhye, @Kash, @Digital Vampire,
You have spent considerable time with Tucson and know almost everything about it. It would be great if you can provide your inputs on this. Is Hyundai able to still procure the spares from Korea if needed? I don't mind waiting for few days for the spares as this won't be my primary car.

Other considerations:
I considered a used Safari but Tucson is my primary choice as this has been close to my heart since I drove it first. Scorpio isn't an option due to the bumpy ride quality. CRV and GV are other options but couldn't find any good condition ones on sale.
