This sounds like what my 2006 Tucson was doing also with the addition of it turning off when being put into reverse as well as when going forward. It would happen randomly and was really scary not knowing when my car would turn off without warning. The first time I took it in they couldn't figure it out but luckily the second time there were codes in the system since the check engine light had been turned on and I took it in soon enough. It ended up being the throttle position sensor. It was a $336 fix. It has driven fine since then, about three months now. It was really frustrating but glad it's fixed. I hope this helps anyone having the same problem.

Just wanted to thank everyone for their input here. I am running into the same isse and am on my way to Hyundai this morning. At least now I know I am not nuts. I had a local shop look at her but nothing was diagnosed. Last night however she bucked so hard I thought i would have had whiplash.
If they find anything I will certainly post. Mine is a little different as when she downshifts she gives a slight jerk. She does however shut down unexpectly when stopping on a hill or making a turn into a driveway on the decelleration.
Hope they find it!

This 2006 hundai tuscon has been running great, no problems at all, very happy with the performance. it's time to replace the timing belt because it has 115k miles on it, so i take it to the dealer and have them replace it along with the plugs and wires because i cannot get to the back 3 plugs. When the job was done, i pick it up, and go home by the highway doing 70mph and noticed a quick, maybe 3 seconds, of a skip. Didn't think anything of it. The next day i'm driving to work and it would loose power when i'm driving around 35mph and shift weird, like the transmission was in it's own world, up and down shift. After a few minutes it would run fine for the rest of the day and for the next 2 days.
The 3rd day i get the same weird performance, hesitating and shifting when it feels like. Then clears up and is fine for 2 more days.
I decided to take the engine cover off and investigate if any wiring harnesses wern't plugged on all the way and to just go over all connections, and all looked fine.
Ran fine for the week, put 200 miles on it without any issues. When i put the key in the ignition in and turned it this morning, it just gave a "click" like the battery was dead then started fine on the 2nd attempt. The battery is brand new so it's not a battery issue. I drove it and it had the same hesitation and shift issues again, really weird because it rand great all week. I would really like to find this issue fast....the check engine light has not come on, i have a code check device and there are no codes.

Most likely it is the throttle position sensor. I had the same problem over year ago with my 06 Tucson but since replacing that part it has been fine. It was a $336 fix at the Hyundai dealership. Hope this helps!

Thanks, you had it replaced, i am mechanically inclined and can possibly replace it. Anyone know where the sensor is located on the engine, any video or images available? Hopefully the manifold does not need to be removed.
