G'day from Aussie !!
2010 Tucson dosn't hit the road here until about 2nd qtr (Apr -June). Australian Price point for the entry level is looking at 30-35K Aussie Dollars. We can currently get the 2009 model for $22K for the City SX 5 Speed Manual (think this is the GLS elsewhere).
I've just ordered the 09 model. The 2010 looks amazing and will likely blow the competion away here. I know the 09 vs 10 are to totally different cars but cant really jusity the 10k plus difference between the models.. On a tight budget these days
Anyway, any tips or things to look out for with my new ride...

I am looking to buy a 2010 Limited FWD with Premium Package. Does anyone know what would be a good price to pay for this.

10K difference? Wow,things are sure different down under.A loaded 2010 GLS MSRP is around $22,000 here which is about the same as the 2009 model. I drove one and then I drove the KIA Sorento.I liked the Sorento much better,except for the gas mileage.29 hwy compared to 31 on the Tucson.

You could at least try to not make it sound so obvious that you work at Hyundai.
I don't know how you can tell that the ride is quiet, it is not. To start with, the 2.4L engine is not enough. It doesn't merge easily on the freeway and can even be dangerous for not moving you in time. It doesn't have the guts to move this vehicle, and when it tries to do so it revs the hell out of itself, creating a LOT of engine noise in the cabin.
That was enough to step me away from this vehicle, but if people is not annoyed with that fact, there are things that i loved about this car, one of them being the stability (grabbed a curve and it handled it better than mi civic coupe) and how nice the leather feels on this car, leather and cabin feels very very nice.

Full disclosure: First, I do not work for Hyundai. Second, your stated opinion/experience was different than mine. I stand by my comments that the Tucson is one of the quietest riding vehicles compared to the competition that the Tucson competes in. So, yes it is quieter than the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, and RAV-4.

I agree. On my test drive I thought it was very quiet. Also, I merged onto I95 which is a death trap and had no problems excelerating into traffic. I currently have a Subaru and before that a MINI Clubman and the Tucson seems quieter than both of them.

I totally agree. I was amazed at how quiet and tight the Tucson was. I was actually trying to eliminate it from our short list of vehicles. I sure can't do that now. Hopefully, in the next couple of weeks, I will get the wife into it. The final decision will be hers (it will be her car after all). The Tucson definitely makes the short list. My only complaint was the cost. It seems comparable to other CUV's and I was hoping I could score a decent rebate. Paying full price for a Hyundai just doesn't seem right.

I live in the Richmond VA market and the dealers here have marked them up $1500 so they are way over priced. I guess as Hyundai's quality goes up so have their prices, but then again their prices seem to still be competitive. If anyone finds a great deal in the VA or surrounding market please post your experience.
