I see you're in Blore. I am in Blore too.

What was his ex-showroom price after the 2L discount? And the on-road price? Which variant?

I am also in the market and have similar sentiments. I am waiting for Creta to come with cruise control, that fits in my budget better. But if the wait gets too long, then I am willing to stretch to a Tucson, I love its interiors.

Could be the AC compressor. Make sure they don't just top up the gas and get you going as this way the failure can go unnoticed for a few months.

Usually it chills the front of my body so much that I curse Hyundai for not giving ventilated seats in this one.

I have called the service head at the dealership and he said he'll check it out tomorrow. Any pointers here? TIA.
Hi,

were you able to figure out the problem here? and was it solved by Hyundai?

I'm considering buying the GLS in the next couple of months and was wondering if you could give an updated on the performance of your car and any other small things/issues you noticed recently?

Thanks

Hi ach1lles, any update ??
Very strangely I am having the same issue -6040 kms on the odo now .Took it the ASS but they said the AC was cooling fine. The other day when it was bright and sunny the cabin just would not cool even when the temp was set to Minimum !!
I understand the "grill temp" should be 6-7 Deg C when car is in the shade and engine revs are around 1000 rpm.
Planning to stick a dial thermometer into the vent and check.
Lets have some inputs when you have sorted out your AC issue.
Regards,

I don't know whether anybody else has clarified this. Headrest are not for resting and napping. It is an important safety instrument to prevent "Whiplash" injury to the neck in case of accidents. Don't ever remove it or use neck support which can reduce its functionality.

There is reason for it to be odd shaped with the upper part pointing forwards, which is a very uncomfortable position to rest.

And also removable headrest has pointed rods for adjustment, which are meant to break the glasses in case of accident and doorjam situations.

Most of Hyundais have this feature. If you unlock and do not open the door for 15-30 seconds it will lock automatically. But will remain unlocked if any door is opened within 30 seconds.

So Hyundai is (are?) aware of this problem, apparently. A small part, the thermo-coupler needed to be replaced, which was done by a visiting Hyundai technician promptly. He came down just to replace this part for me. Other than that, the car has had zero issues.

Regards,
Check above, it is the thermocoupler. The Tucson has a different one, which needed to be imported from Korea, or atleast that's what they told me. That's when I commented that Hyundai is learning from Ze Germans, in more ways than one, and not having spare parts in stock in India was, er, typically german.
PS: I actually noticed it during bumper to bumper traffic when the AC would just cut off if the accelerator wasn't pressed. On highways it worked almost fine, and so I wasn't sure if there was a problem.

Yeah, I should've added all of this, I realised it after thinking about it for a bit, but then I just didn't bother :P
All the points you've posted are absolutely correct. Thanks.

Also, I'm due for an update, a 10k write up if you will, but I was travelling for the last month or so, and that really deserves a travelogue. A hint, and a small preview in the pic below. Bonus points for everyone getting it

That tunnel is part of the F1 track at Monaco and so very popular.

That would indeed be something! Even well to do Europeans consider Monaco too expensive for a holiday.

Nice write up, 5*.

You should be in that tunnel to listen to the F1 cars at full throttle. Awesome it would be.

Do the eyebrow lights turn on with the parking lights or is it part of the DRL set up?

There is word that the 4*4 will be launched by Diwali, but not sure with Hyundai, this model was slated to be launched around March this year. At least they will have black interiors and probably cooled seats. If Verna can get them, why why Hyundai?

You get a bonus point for being correct, and another bonus bonus point for being clever.

Nah. While the south of France (or, more precisely, Côte d'Azur) is different, prettier, costlier and fancier compared to rest of France, or even Europe, it is still not out of reach like that. I see what they mean though. The level of glitz and flamboyance in Monaco was through the roof. The only place that could come close was St. Tropez, but Monaco is, well, Monaco.

It really should be a part of the DRL set up, and it was weird to me too that it wasn't. No, there's another stalk position for the eyebrows.

On you point about the mileage, around 9 kmpl in local traffic sounds about right. I get a combined 11.5 kmpl or thereabouts, in which about half the distance is on the highways, which, if I'm honest, even though they're inter state highways, they still don't offer a drive which can give a higher average speed and mileage per L. Also, I'm mostly in sport mode and constantly braking. I once did go eco for a 100 km stretch and the computer showed that I was going about 17 kmpl :O
Nice review @ac1lles.

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)

^Thanks. Sorry, I don't know any Tucson owners in my area, let alone Bangalore, heh. As for actual FE, you can extrapolate and get a fairly close idea, if not actual FE. In my experience, the instrument cluster is quite close to actual FE, give or take a couple of litres of difference in a full tank of 60+ litres.

I'd assume about a 33% difference from ARAI figures. But, obviously, an actual user will be able to give you a more accurate reply. Also, same engine is there in the Elantra, so you could get an idea from Elantra owners too.

Are low beam and high beam - both LEDs? How good are they? I owned 1st gen Tucson and headlights were poor.
