Tuscon was one of the contenders when I was looking at an SUV..The one I saw had done 73k on the odo. This was a 2006. The suspension was ZERO, as was the camber (chimta) needed replacement. The price quoted was 7L - expected expense was above 50K, so I let it pass. The headlights were faded, had "cheap" upholstery, to make a novice believe the interiors (at least) were ship-shape !! LOL LOL

So take a cue, yes North is a little cheaper.

It is a great vehicle to drive, I was tilted towards the Pajero as I have a "thing" for old school SUV's

Happy hunting !

Default Tucson Service n Spares

Zeroing in on a Tucson This week, Found one which has very good maintenance record and Looks. Got scared when the Hyundai Service Centre Guy told me that It is not easy to get the parts of the Tucson Nowadays and they have to order them from Korea

Somewhere in the forum I d read, that "Hyundai gets Parts from Korea as if They have a direct pipeline from Korea"

Apart from this Point in view, I goind for the Tucson, Pls Pls Pls advise me so that I can at least sleep easy. ( With a couple of Lemons in my past, I am a Bit touchy on this)

^^ Sourcing parts for Tucson is not a pain, most reputed Hyundai workshops can arrange even the rarely used parts real quick. I drive a Elantra and most parts are not manufactured locally.

BTW which Hyundai Service center in Chandigarh did you consult? I had very bad experience with Karishma(not sure of exact name) Hyundai, they damaged my car's climate control console while changing a bulb and refused to change the unit under warranty, though they changed it under warranty under pressure, they had to get the unit from Korea.

Yes, Hyundai logistics is infact very good...They usually get even rarely replaced parts in a matter of 1-3 days. They call it VOR (Vehicle On Road) option and they can get parts from Korea in the above time frame.

Go for Tucson if you've zeroed in on a good specimen at a good price. I'm surprised it is one of the least discussed soft-roaders here. Probably the much higher pricing killed it in infancy itself.
