Hello, my name is Margo, and I am almost the proud owner of a new 2022 Tucson Limited!!

I had to put a down payment/deposit on a New Tucson Limited because there are literally none anywhere in my state. I live in Idaho and they have literally sold out. I don’t know if we didn’t get a lot to start with but the Limited (gas) models are sold before they even get delivered to the lots. The salesman are looking at their “in-transit” sheets and people are buying them while they are still on the truck.
Has anyone else run into this issue? I’ve been looking forever. Mine is probably still in factory because it’s not due to get here until the middle of June.
Does every state have this problem? And, the salesman told me straight up that they are in such big demand that they are adding a couple thousand to all of them, just because they can. What’s up with that?
In reading about it, I found a few things that have said “2022 Tucson NX4 Limites Interior” Can anyone tell me what NX4 means? All I can find are other people asking the same thing.
From the looks of it, I think it will be well worth the wait. I’ve had a 2015 before and loved it. How is everyone here’s experience. Will it be worth the wait and the $$$$?
I look forward to hearing what other people think and what you all love, and not love so much, about your Tucson’s. And if anyone can explain the NX4 to me. Thanks!!!

Lol - you lead a sheltered life! Virtually all cars are in short supply some more than others mostly because of chip shortages, but for a couple of other reasons also.
The Tucson is a HUGE seller, all new from the ground up and the style seems to be very popular.
Mine so far has been terrific overall. Always room to nitpik.

I happen to live where the largest seller of Hyundai vehicles in the U.S. is and they have had a decent stream of available vehicles but alot of dealers do not have alot.
They are not adding on to the MSRP, but again many dealers are. Only you can decide if paying $2,000 over the list price is worth it to you. Are you trading in a car and getting alot for it?

Hi, I’m in Idaho as well, Coeur d’Alene , and just got my new Tucson. I went through basically the same thing except the dealers up here aren’t charging extra. I paid MSRP. There are no new cars of any brand on the lots here, you have to get on the waiting list. I was fortunate and mine was delivered in around 2 months

Caught me I do live somewhat of a sheltered life. And yes, I am willing to pay 2,000 more since allot of people are spending more than that. Yes, I am trading in a 2021KIA Sportage and getting more than I owe. Nothing wrong with the car it’s brand new. Just doesn’t have Things I was promised it had, like things a car that expensive should have like an auto lift gate Sirius radio, and some other things. Left a bad taste in my mouth with KIA in general I’ve had a Hyundai Tucson before and love the Limited so decided to make the switch.

Congrats!!! I choose to wait until June to save up as much as I could on the down payment. I also specifically wanted the Pearl white outside. I really wanted tan interior but I guess the Limited only comes grey or black, so I am getting grey. Do you have gas or hybrid? Mine will be gas.

NX4 is the 4th version of Tucson as branded by the factory.

The 2016 - 2021's are called TL
2009-2015 are called LM

It's pretty common. For example civics all have names too
dc5---rsx-r
ep3---02-05 civic si
EM2--01-05 civic
ES-01-05 civic 4 door
EM1--96-00 civic 2 door
Thank you for educating me. It certainly makes sense now!

Nice. That’s pretty much like the limited but without navigation, right?

I was fortunate. My semi-local dealer in NH called me to say they got a truck with 6 on it and all but 1 was pre-sold. The one they had left happened to be the exact one I wanted. (gas, SEL Convenience & Premium Packages) so, I bit the bullet and got it that day. I've had it about 6 weeks now and I'd give it 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Glad you got the deal. It's the same build as my wife's. It hasn't left the house since getting it last week. Why'd ya ding its score? I'm keeping notes for the wife.

I have the same, ICE/SEL/Convenience/Premium and I have the Cargo package. Interested in honest opinion of your 3.5 out 5.
Mine might not be terribly different I would say between 4/ 4.5 thus far. (1200 miles) But it's smaller irritating things overall I'm very happy with it. Oddly power is fine for me after seeing reviews saying it wasn't. It rides very well, very quiet inside overall seats are comfortable for both of us and really like all the safety tech it has. I find the headlights are fine - despite the triangle effect. Love the look inside and out. Knock on wood no major malfunctions thus far. 1200 miles is too short and I have not enough varied driving to properly asses gas mileage but it seems like on target for what it is supposed to be.

Cons for me - (remember - I really do like the car)
Can't arrange radio stations - a distraction having to scroll every band in one long list and not put the most used at top. First car I ever owned you can't arrange stations and that includes WAY back to the push button analog radios so this really sticks out and is annoying.

No footwell lights. Seems petty.

Storage up front is less than I would expect including no sunglass storage, smaller glove box than my Soul had, smaller door storage, etc

Somewhat worried about seat bottom - very slight sag that I never saw in our cars before. Some days it pretty much disappears so will have to see how it plays out.

Rod that holds the (heavy) hood has a slight bend already. Dealer agrees will replace but I wonder if it will just happen again.

May be an Android Auto thing but there is no split screen with maps on one side and music on the other - only built in navigation in the Limited has it apparently.

I like the tech, (that was my main reason for switching from my 2021 CRV), the styling, the size, the ride, the features. I don't like the power (it's really slow), I hate the storage compartment between the front seats. It is still empty because I don't think I'll ever use it as it's so far back. I know this is weird, but the car feels...for lack of a better word...delicate to me. Like, I have to be careful with it or it will break. I never had this feeling with my CRV, or any of my many previous vehicles. I'm sure it's just me.

Overall, it's nice. Much better app than Honda. I could not start my CRV from the app. Maybe I was too harsh with my 3.5 rating. We'll see. I only have about 650 miles on it so far. Taking a little trip this weekend.

NX4 just means the fourth generation of the Tucson. As to the wait, here in Ohio it’s just as crazy. I gave up trying to get a hybrid. Just too long a wait and no idea when they’ll become available. The mess in Ukraine and Russia ain’t helping ( many of Hyundais parts are sourced there). There was already a part shortage from China from their lock downs. Now, with most of the hybrids coming from So Korea, the 2.5 are the easiest to get. Ours 2.5 LTD is due any day now. So far, dealer is only charging MSRP, no market adjustment crap.😃

You are very lucky. My dealer here in Idaho flat out told me that they are at least charging 2,000 over MSRP because the car is in such high demand. They should be a law about this kind of thing or at least have a cap on the amount I’ve MSRP dealerships are allowed to go over or the manufacture just simply should t deal with them anymore. Sounds simple, but most things do SOUND simple. LOL. SO, do you have a Limited gas, and do you have any issues or anything g you would change and/or add? What is your favorite feature?
