Its difficult to determine if any purchase price savings occur on the Canadian Tucson due to the side airbag unavailability - pricing differences are more complex than a straight currency conversion.
However it is unacceptable that Hyundai would consider safety to be less of an issue to the Canadian market, and its keeping me from buying one. I'll probably end up with a CR-V if the 2006 Tucson doesn't have side airbags standard.

I am not sure how much more money you have to pay up to add the side airbags. But at least you have the options to add them on. CR-V can't have 6 airbags no matter how much more money you are willing to pay. Great saftey and more feature at relatively low price is still a deal.
I do think you in Canada should write a letter to hyundai president to protest this.

I don't think you understand my point. Canadians DO NOT have the option to add side airbags. If it was another option package to have them added, there wouldn't be an issue. No such option package exists.
The CR-V already has the side curtain airbags, so they're getting my money.

poor strategy by Hyundai. The marginal profit to sell a car must be much higher than adding a couple of more standard features. More important is to grab market shares for an emerging car maker.
I tested CR-V before buying the Tucson. I remeber it has only 4 airbags. Maybe I am wrong.

Does the Tuscan come with 4WD in the 4 cylinder engine. I went on to the Hyundai website and built my own vehicle and I only saw 4WD with the V6 engine.

AWD is only available on the 4cyl with the 5sp manual transmission.

I saw them on E-Bay. Do a search on Hyundai Tucson Mud Flaps or Guards

When using the CD player just hold the CD in the slot and wait for the player to grab it from you and pull it in.

My mom just bought a GLS V6 4WD for $500 below invoice including rebates. She loves it! Any recommended accessories? Is there a Tuscon owners club website? Thanks!

I bought a Tuscon LX '05 and the car doesn't have a button for the Traction control. In the manual I see a button for trac on/off and one for ESP on/off. The dealer ship told me there is only one button now. The trac control is now part of the ESP and there is only one button to control both. Does anyone know for sure about this? Also does anyone have an LX 2005 with a Trac AND ESP button? I want to know if I have Traction control. There is no idiot light on my panel for trac just ESP.
