Thumbs up

Congrats Devil .
Yes it is an amazing suv and IMO it is a strong answer to all the critics out there of Hyundai(though its far from over) and this car is doing pretty well all over the world and yes A/C is fantastic too and as GTO said do not switch on the TC in the running in period and otherwise too .

Even I was going through the same problem what to buy FORD ENDEAVOUR
Or HYUNDAI TUCSON but both are good in there own ways i would surely prefer Hyundai Tucson.

Endeavour gives you more road presence than the Tucson but Tucson gives you better mileage, it has a CRDI engine, has better looking interiors ...& the list goes on.
So I would suggest you to go in for Hyundai without any doubts.

@ Vikas: thanx mite, i have already bought the Tucson, as Steeroid pointed out. u are right about the list of goodies going on n on in the Tuc, compared to the Endeavour.

@Satish, AADIX : wud this saturday arvo be good? cud meet up at a pub or sometin, wud luv to see ur Sonata v6, aadix. Satish, the pics will come soon, very soon.

@ Beemer: yea man, will surely take care of the TCS thing, but i wanted to ask , can i drive the car keeping the TCS off always, or u recommend keeping the TCS Activated? i mean, the showroom guy told me that u wont need the TCS in the city drivings (unless on slippery/wet roads) but good if u go on highways. he said, keeping the TCS Active will consume more fuel, and will give around 1 to 1.5 kmpl less. so is it useful in the city???

@ Hawkeye : dude, the car doesnt come with any Alarm systems and Keyless entry! ghanta! i had to install that myself, it came only with Central locking. thou, i think it does have engine immobilising feature in it, didnt go thru the manual yet on that. will let u know what it does have.

thanx again, all!


One drawback i see of the Tuc, the boot space could have been even more bigger! after my subbie box, i got only a feet of ground space left in the boot!


PS: To all those who think that this car is over priced, or not worth the price, then rethink, take a drive, and u will see its every penny well spent! and even if it would be a lakh more, it would still be a bargain, compared to the CRV! if a Fully Loaded Scorpio CRDe SLX model can cost 9.75 lk onroad (hyd) then the Tuc costing 16.5 lk on-road (hyd) is anyday the extra money well worth the returns!~

BULBS: Phillips BLUE Vision 60/55wts - AMAZING CLARITY!
(well, the bulbs currently in the pack are my old onez.)



Controls: Speedometer Brightness Level, Dummy,TCS ON/OFF, 4WD LOCK, Headlamp Leveling.
(in the Dummy, i am putting a switch for a second set of Horns, a good loud ones - BOSCH Europa)



Cupholders, All over the vehilcle, ample of storage space, Every door has a Bottle Holder.




In addition to the Stereo here, i also have installed a DSP (Digital Sound Processor, a digital equalizer, of which i forgot to take the snaps, its sitting below the steering wheel.) Next, Regarding the Black Panel above my Stereo, that is from a ZEN! i have ordered a CD Storage Box, which is the size of exactly a single din panel, from madras, costing Rs.1,000/- taht will come in that place and then will give it a more proper finished look. this is a temp adjustment to cover the double din hole.

The Dolby PRO LOGIC II is coz this system has 5.1 channel output, so next time i go to Singapore/Thailand, me gonna get the Centre Speaker for the Car, hence a proper Movie Theater!

thats all folks, for now...
Soon, i am getting the Side Cladding and the Mag Wheels all painted body Color! my Tuc will be a proper personalised one! waiting for the rains to stop so i can get the paint jobs done...

hope u like them.

(PS to MODS: please do add up "Pics on this page" on the Topic Title, thanx.)
