I just hope you wont have my problem with the 05 tucson, my A/C malfunctioned after one year...bought it Aug o5, gave me a problem already during Aug 2006, Hyundai USA cant do anything, brought it already with two dealer, twice in Douglas Hyundai stayed there for two whole day, and sent it out again to another Hyundai, they didn't cange my A/c or even fix it, they gave me the reason of that my Termostat needs to be at MAX always, I hope you wont get a Lemon, also I learned the hard way that Hyundai tends to loose VALUE VERY VERY FAST!!!

I'm thinking of buying a Hynudai Tucson. Either 2006 or 2007. The 2006 models seem around 2 K below the 2007 models (which are not really available at this point). I do need to buy within a couple of weeks so I can't wait for 2007 models anyway in trim and color. There seem to be relatively few differences between the 2006 and 2007 SUVs.
I know that resale value will be lower for the 2006 model, but I do not intend to resale for many years so I don't care about that.
Any thoughts on going with the cheaper 2006 model

If you are looking to keep the car 5+ years it doesn’t matter if it is a 06 or a 07. From what I can tell there is barely a difference between the two with exception to a few new colors.
Hyundai is also offering a rebate on the 06 now:
GLS V6 and Limited V6 - $1500
GL 4 cyl - $1000
There is also special financing as well on the 06.
I personally would go for the 06 if you are looking to keep the car until the wheels fall off. With the 2007 coming onto the lots, they are more willing to negotiate on their current inventory and you can get the rebate.
#165 of 295 Rebate amount???
Oct 31, 2006 (5:45 am)
Does anyone know, or have an idea, on what the rebate amount will be tomorrow (November) for the 2006 Tuscon GLS? It's $1500 right now, but I'm thinking it could only go up tomorrow. IMO it wouldn't make sense for it to go down. But maybe my thinking is wrong. I'm about to close a deal today, but maybe I should wait until tomorrow.

I just bought a extended warranty today with my new tucson. At first I thought it was a waste of money buying a 10 year bumper to bumper warranty even though it comes with a 5 year B to B and 10 year powertrain. I was told the cost was $1,800 something. Anybody else buy one and I would be interested in knowing how much it cost you. I have 60 days to keep or cancel the policy. Any input would be helpful.
#167 of 295 Thunderbird- Extended warranty
Jan 07, 2007 (5:33 am)
Hi! I purchased an extended warranty in June when I brought my Tucson. I live in NY and was quoted 1500 and change.
I told the FI guy that I wanted it, but no way in hell I was going to pay that. I told him I’d give him $700. He gasped as if I was crazy. Before he could say anything I said “Look I did my homework, we both know you didn’t pay 1500 for that policy. I’m not going over 800. If I don’t buy it here I’ll buy it at another dealership.”
He gave it to me for $800.
I usually keep my cars for a while so I feel a warranty from the car manufacturer is worth it. In addition is has no deductible and if you choose to sell the car/trade it in, it will help enhance the resale value slightly because it is transferable to the new owner.
Best of luck with you new Tucson. I love mine.

I was just quoted $900 from our dealer yesterday. I haven't seen the actual papers though. I am buying a 2007 GLS FWD. I wasn't sure if a warranty is worth it. I already have AAA roadside.
#169 of 295 Is 4WD for real
Jan 19, 2007 (8:12 pm)
I just bought a new 2006 4WD V6 Tucson. I really like the car. The owner’s manual states the when the 4WD lock button is pushed. The setup begins to get cancelled when the vehicle speed exceeds 30 km/h and completely releases at 40 km/h. This is only 20 mph to 25 mph. In my opinion this not 4WD. If I am driving on the highway and one of my front tires slips or spins will my rear wheels engage at speeds greater than 25 mph.

The 4WD lock is for deep snow/mud conditions.. It locks in 4WD at all times, even when it isn't needed..It is only for extreme circumstances. The reason it becomes inoperable at high speeds is that long term use could damage your vehicle.
Your 4WD system will still operate normally, when the lock isn't being used.. If the front wheels slip, power will shift to the rear.
I see you posted in the general Hyundai Tuscon discussion, as well.. Someone there will probably chime in with specific details of how your particular system works.
