We have had our 22 Limited for 2 weeks Saturday. Just found this forum today.
Vehicle forums are a great way to learn about your car. I know most folks don't post when they have no issues.
My initial impression is this 22 Tucson is problem filled by the numerous problempost, many being electronic faults. I had a fault too.
My question is:
Is there anyone that has not had an issue and is really satisfied with the car?
Thanks

I am totally satisfied with mine. Had since the end of November. I use this forum to find answers to the usage of the enormous amount of features that I had not seen before and meet fellow drivers of the 2022 Tucson PHEV.

I have had no issues mechanically or electrically. The car runs and drives great. I think all new cars in general are just overly complicated to operate. Everything works, but with so many features (cruise, smart cruise, blue tooth, Android auto, Bluelink, door locks with funky designs, auto climate control, drive modes, digital dashboards, "infotainment" systems, and on and on,) there is a high learning curve to drive these cars especially for someone like me who hasn't owned a new car since 2006. There are a dozen buttons on the STEERING WHEEL for gosh sakes, not including the horn! I have bought at least 10 new cars in my 68 years and more used cars than I care to count, and this is the first car that I couldn't drive off the lot without literally having to be told how to turn the damn thing on and I am still learning how things work after 6 months of driving it. I'm happy with my new car but honestly, IMHO, my used 2006 CRV that I owned for 5 years without spending a penny on it except for gas and oil and is still being driven daily by my son, is a better car.

I have a Tucson Hybrid Limited for 1 month. I am very happy and have no mechanical or electronic issues. While it is more complicated than most of my previous cars, It does a lot more. I find the electronics more straight forward than other new car models. It always surprises me how poorly integrated some electronics in cars are. I think the car drives outstanding, is comfortable and it is very quiet on the road. I do have one grip and that is the gas mileage that I am seeing (28 - 32 mpg vs 36/37). It is discussed at some length in other chats on this forum and I am hoping it will get better.

My only real complaint is the current mileage, but I also understand that this will go up as the engine breaks-in.

I’m also not a big fan of the “paddle-style” radio controls on the steering wheel. I far prefer a rocker, or even just pushing a button IN vs up and down. This is a minor gripe, but combined with the fact that I have to push down to increment numbers/stations UP… is silly.

That said, I plan to replace our 2nd car with a second Tucson. I’m pretty happy with it overall, and I think it’s drop-dead gorgeous inside and out. I love just looking at it.

I'm at 430 miles or so only the warning light for front crash system came but after restart it has not reappeared. One other thing yesterday after waiting at light to turn left, as I cleared the intersection the throttle became unresponsive. Coasted into a parking lot and after 20-30 seconds it was functional again. No more problems the rest of the day.
Very odd behavior I got say.
It's my wife's car and she wanted it. I have a Stinger GT2 and after 2.5 years not one issue.
I do hope these to issues with Tucson are just settling in problems but my Flt. Engineer background makes me concerned.
My $.02 worth.

Gas. Limited
Well I have been hearing problems from the ones made in Alabama which are the gas models, The PHEV's all all imports and seem to have less problems, I really have no issues with either of mine one being a Limited and one the SEL model which are both PHEV's

There definitely is a substantial learning curve. I take some solace in the fact that “learning new things” is a recommended best practice for healthy aging. (70 something here). That said, after 2 1/2 months and 2500 miles, I think the car is GREAT. Yesterday , in 5.5 hours of highway driving, the smart cruise control and lane keeping made for a much more relaxing trip. I must report that with those two systems operating the car drives better by itself than under my guidance.
