Nice car - in case you didn't know, Rahul Dravid drives one of these.
Do the clamps (on the base of car) for the fridge come as standard fitment or did you add them when you bought the fridge?

The Clamps are already in the car.It is full of such intelligently placed items

Looks neat
get rid of the side step,it kinda looks tacky.
Rohit,if you dont mind disclosing,how much did you pay for it?
and asking again.
Is that Sun\Moon Roof OEM or a Dealer fitment?

^^^^Akshay the steps are useful for the kids n the ladies so they stay on..
about the cost.....it cost me in the region of 7 odd lakhs.
as told above, the sun roof is billed and updated in hyundai's record, of course fitted by webasto motherson locally. I enquired with hyundai dealership and they said thy got it done for many people here in punjab.

Same here. Though they add to the glass area of the car thereby increasing the temp. inside still they add a lot to any car's looks. Maybe I should had got a full electric model for my Baleno instead of sticking to base model from Webasto.


Oh and yeah, 7 lakhs is a good deal for this vehicle. One of the very few Hyundais I like.


Regards.

Congrats for the Hyundai. The car appears to be in good shape. Enjoy the drive for the years to come.

^^^Utopian
The wire from the lighter socket is for the Radar-Laser Detector which you can see just at the base of the windscreen...(yes , it is effective) the wire will be concealed through the console in coming days

Happy User at last

I am too a great lover of tucson, but somehow could not land up a good one while scouting for replacement this time. Still landed on a very good corolla at a bargain price

PS: Care to share details and working of those radar detectors, also as I know these radars are illigeal otherwise.. ain't it ?

@Rohit: Congrats on an awesome buy. Looks as if the previous owner has taken good care of it. I've experienced the brilliance of the tucson driving thru new zealand and its a stonker on the highways. Wish u n the new ride all the v best.

Congrats, It is not really safe to drive with the head out over the top of an sunroof, so pls avoid it.

^^^ Ashish , The Radar detectors are Illegal if the cops are aware of it most of the cops are more interested in their greased Palms rather than the challan. However when the sppeding drive in Chandigarh starts, it costs 1800 for One time overspeeding above 65. Now the detector sounds of an alarm inside the car quite ahead of the Laser/Radar Gun and gives you some time to reduce speed.

The Best things in Life are either Illegal, Banned or married to someone else........

^^^ ACM, I took great care whenever the same happens, Thanks for the concern, will try to avoid it further

Default Small Question

Guys
For all who have some knowhow of the Tuc, There is a Single Slot above the Central A/C Vent , next to the clock. It looks like a PCMCIA Card reader kind of Thing, I was wondering if anyone could guide me to the utility of the thing
