Would really like to get the 2011 Tuscon "limited" . BUTTTTT... I would like to switch out the tire and wheels from the GLS.on it instead of the lower radius tires "forced upon you" tires on the limited. Does anyone know what type of problems that might be in the sense of speedometer and or computer calculations. The GLS has 17inch P225/60.
The Limited has 18inch P225/55

I've read the posts about the 2005, 2006 and 2012 battery problems with the Tucson. Mine is a 2010. I left it for 14 days while on vacation and forgot to have it started, my fault. Then I left it for 7 days and had to have it jumped. The dealership said it was because of all the electronics, computers, etc. but it is only a GLS. But I listened to them. This time I was away for 6 days and the lights came on, but the battery only clicked, I had it jumped! I never, ever have had a problem with any other car regarding time away and dead batteries. From the posts I see, I should have the driver's door connections checked, the radio connections checked and perhaps the mirror connections? Anything else? I want to be armed (not literally) when I take this back to the dealership. What else should I do? ThanksQ
#1445 of 1450 Hyundai Tucson Battery
Mar 01, 2012 (1:05 pm)
I recently wrote about my battery going dead after 14, 7 and 6 days. I had taken the vehicle to Hyundai and they found nothing wrong after the 1st two times. I recently took it back after this third incident and armed with my knowledge of "mirror, master door lock, or radio" problems and "TaDa" it was the mirror problem. It seems that the service department was "unaware" of this problem, but fortunately for me a salesman walked by and then another and they mentioned knowing of all three problems. I can also tell you that when I hooked up my garage door opener to the mirror I could only get the door to open, but not close once I was in the garage.
Now after the "fix" I can also get the garage door to close. So, perhaps this can be an indication for future Tucson owners who cannot get the door to close, that they have a wiring problem in the mirror!!!!!!!! I also have to say that the dealership was not nice about this problem and I intend to write to Hyundai about them. Thanks for all your help! pk
#1446 of 1450 Parts issues
Jun 25, 2012 (8:13 am)
I have had my 2010 for a bit over 2 years. In that time I have had 4 warranty issues. It took 2 months to get a new backup camera shortly after I leased the vehicle, and a week to get a new AC compressor a week ago. The dealer would not provide a loaner, as I bought at another dealer. Calling Hyundai was a waste of time.
In all the cars we have owned in recent years I have not had that number of warranty issues in the first 2 years, and never had to wait a week for a part. That includes Land Rovers, Volvos, an Audi, Toyota and more.
The car is OK. For a $29 K car, it is really over priced, and if you can not get parts in a day, the warranty if worthless in my view.
#1447 of 1450 Floor mats do not snap/lock in place ?
Nov 04, 2012 (4:55 am)
New 2013 Tuscon and went to check the mats yesterday. Found that they were not snapped / locked in place. Reason being is that the carpeting has round pegs, while the mats have rectangular holes ! Can not put a round peg into a rectangle ! Wondering if anybody has had this same problem ? Wondering if Hyundai has given us the wrong mats ? Even the owners manual states for safety, they should snap into place.
Any help or advise is greatly appreciated.

Wow, don't get so defensive. I'll bet a lot of people don't own a 2013 car, so
they didn't answer. My 2010 mats are fine. But don't knock the system, I
got an answer to the problem of my battery always going dead. A lot of people gave plenty of advice because they had similar problems. Good luck on future questions, and lighten up!
