Hello, I’ve had my 2022 Tucson SEL with convenience for about six weeks now. I absolutely love this car, however; I’m noticing that while driving it jerks. It doesn’t matter if I am accelerating or if my foot is still in the same position on the pedal it will jerk randomly as I’m driving it. Also, when I’m accelerating from a stop sign or stop light the wheels kind of feel like they’re spinning/shaking and driving over gravel when I accelerate, before it actually starts and shifts gears. I brought my car into the dealership on Saturday and they told me that they couldn’t find anything wrong with it and that I was the first person to come in with this problem with the new 2022 Tucson. They would have to wait and see if other people are having the same issue or not. The service man told me that it may have something to do with the new eight speed transmission and how it operates, but unfortunately right now we just have to wait to see if other people will have the same issue. Is anyone else experiencing this with their new 2022 Tucson? Any feedback would be great.

YES!! I have been scouring all over the internet to find someone else with these issues. I just bought my 22 Tucson on June 29th. The check engine light has come on of and on, and I too experiencing the jerking. I went to service on Saturday and their inspection turned up nothing. People think I'm crazy cause the car is so new. Have you noticed any other issues? I have had an engine control system issue notification as well. These problems are 100% ruining my new car experience.

My check engine light isn’t coming on but I’m having problems with the engine jerking and the feeling of driving in gravel when accelerating from a stop. The wireless car play is nothing but a heady when I use it with my iPhone. The dealership can’t find anything wrong with it

Had this same issue on my 14 Tucson. Hyundai said if there is no check engine light it’s fine. Current 22 Tucson hybrid is fine.

I'm a new member, so hello to all.
My 22 Tucson SEL with 8 speed DCT is jerky also, most notably around 25 mph when you lightly accelerate. The transmission is in 5 gear around that speed which is causing the car to jerk until the vehicle speed increases or transmission downshifts.

Had it into Hyundai this morning and they said they have lots of people with the DCT transmission complaining about the lack of smoothness with the DCT. They explained to me how this transmission is really a manual transmission made to work like an automatic transmission. There is no torque converter!

The shop foreman went with me for a ride and he told me every time the car made the slight jerking motion, I didnt need to point it out. He said to contact Hyundai with my problem and maybe they can come up with a software update to smooth the shifting.

I emailed Hyundai with my concerns and opened up a case number.

The DCT doesn't belong in this class vehicle, it's better suited for a Veloster where people like to drive fast with quick shifts.
Confused, I know Hyundai Australia uses DCT in their 1.6L Turbo version of the Tucson, but am I wrong in thinking North America (Canada and United States) is using the normal 8 speed AT for the 2.5L and a normal 6 speed AT for the 1.6L Turbo models, not a DCT?

The Hyundai USA website says the transmission is an 8-speed automatic with SHIFTRONIC

Ok, my previous post about the 2022 Tucson having a DCT transmission was wrong! I went back today and told them that they were wrong and they admitted they were in error. I have an appointment this Monday the 12th and a loaner car provided.

They felt the jerkyness of the car and will talk to Hyundai to solve the problem since no codes were shown.

I dont have much faith in them since they didn't know what transmission was in the vehicle in the first place. I'll post when I find something out.

Sorry for the misleading prior post, I'm not into cars like when I was young.

I am having the same issues on my 2022 Tucson SEL, There's a handful accounts with this problem, I joined another forum that is all Hyundai related. The other forum site has multiple people sharing this issue, hard downshift and hard upshift in between gears, the first hard shift/jerk was around 500 miles, corning a turn to slow down as coming out, I gently press on gas paddle, I could hear the engine idling high then all of the sudden the gears wants to shift with hard jerk that feels like I have been rear ended, it scared the living crap out of my wife. Again took it in for service and of course nothing is wrong, I did however called customer care and opened up a case.

And the thing about the wheels feeling like spinning/shaking.
Mine drove the same way, it rides horribly It just feel like I'm driving on gravel road and it does feels like the tires are wobbly. Before my purchase, I test drove a couple of them from various dealerships and none of them drove wobbly with slight vibration from the steering wheel except my purchased one and of course I test drove this one In the rain, didn't think much about it except the tire pressure was off thinking it would go away, took it in for service for both problem on the tires and the hard up and down shift, they did however found that the tire issue was an unbalanced from the factory but here we are currently 2,000 miles later the slight vibration/feeling of riding on gravel/wobbly ride still exist. I am hoping my case manager will understand my level of frustrations, from past purchased on any vehicle, this is my first car that i went all out to get, it was supposed to be my one and done purchase.

I have the exact same issue here in the Middle east. Mine's a 2.5 with 8 speed automatic (not DCT) and I noticed this issue from the day of delivery. In slow speeds, if I lift my foot from the accelerator or slightly press it, I always feel a slight jerk. The same goes when I am at a stop. I am just hoping it won't cause any long-term issues to the car.

I had this issue on my 2012 Elantra Touring. Hyundai kept saying they couldn’t find a problem. I took it to Canadian Tire where they said the transmission had a lot of gunk around it and recommended cleaning it. The problem disappeared but now it’s returned and CT says the transmission is clean. I’m not even bothering with Hyundai for a fix as I am planning on getting a new car; however, after swearing off Hyundai, I decided to get the 2022 Tucson after test driving almost every other brand. Now, I see this about the Tucson jerking and I’m concerned enough to put my purchase on hold. If you keep taking it back to Hyundai, make sure they write “no fix found” so you have some recourse under lemon laws etc. It’s dangerous too because I always feel a power loss before the jerk, sometimes multiple, starts. It usually commences when I get up to 60 km Before levelling out.

Took my 2022 Tucson in for service, this is from service record:
Customer states vehicle has a consistent miss/jerking motion felt at most driving speeds under light throttle. It is impossible to accelerate under light acceleration.
Dealer: check and advise

This is what they did to fix it: "Reset adaptations. Scan, no codes. No updates. Reset adaptive values. Test drove 14 miles."

They had to contact Hyundai to get this fix.

Dealer told me the reset adaptations were for the transmission.

Drove car home, drives like it should now...perfect!

Update us on any issue after their Reset in the next coming days.
And in the meantime, once I'm contact with my case manager, I will let that person know about your case to see what they will say.

Ok, my dealer had my Tucson 4 days and this is what Hyundai Techline came up with.

Per Techline...vehicle has a 5000 mile break in period and should not be switch to manual often to see which gear it is in. Also advised per Techline customer can compare to another Tucson.

When I asked to drive another Tucson to compare, the dealer said it wouldnt prove much since this problem could develop later on. He is right since my problem didn't occur for a couple of hundred miles.

The dealer said that the vehicle will learn how I drive and act accordingly. When my wife drives the car she will drive her way, then l'll drive my way.....the car will be so confused!
I wonder which one of us drives like a jerk to cause this jerking motion. Lol

Hyundai sent me an email stating that they were working with my dealer and someone from Hyindai would contact me within 10 days from the date on the email, its been 11 days and nothing yet!

I have 1000 miles on the car now and only 4000 miles to go before it fixes itself.

My SEL doesn`t have such a system. The vehicle has no way of knowing who is driving.
If the vehicle isn't shifting smoothly I would like to think something in the electronic controls would correct it or throw a trouble code.

It's a eye catching car. People came up to me today in the parking lot at lunch to ask how I liked it, only to shake their heads when I showed them my dealer repair paperwork.

New to the forum, I also have a 2z Tucson, 1900 miles on it. I also have experienced slight bucking while at low speeds, it hasn’t concerned me too much until this morning. This morning I was driving, first drive of the day, accelerating slowly, when shifting, either second to third, or third to fourth, it felt like it momentarily hit neutral. The revs went higher than they should have, just for a quarter second, then dropped in to the next gear, hard! I also have read others posts on this and another forum about the bucking at slow speeds, but so far everyone who’s tried to have a dealer look in to it has come up empty. So it seems like a waste of time to bring it in with no CEL’s to check.

Yes, I do agree it is a waste of time however it needs to be reported so they can have it on record showing that there's a batch of 2022 Tucson out there having issues. The more customer reporting the problem the more it gets Hyundai attention.

True. I’ll give it a second chance. If it happens again I’ll bring it in. I’ve got a couple calls in to a few service advisers at different dealers to ask them if they’ve seen that before, but who knows when they’ll call me back.
