Two weeks so far with my 2022 Tucson Hybrid Limited (Amazon Gray). Living outside of Philadelphia. Enjoying the car a lot. Impressed with how it drives and all the tech. Adding all my accessories (amazingly the car came with none!). Tow hitch, weather tech mats, cross bars...

Was a bit torn between the Tucson and Santa Fe. I also looked the Highlander and Sorrento but they felt to big, and I did not like how the Highlander Hybrid drove. Liked the console in the Santa Fe more, but went with the Tucson because it was more fun to drive and gets better gas mileage.

It is to early to really tell by the gas mileage is a bit disappointing, but I am waiting to see if it gets better after the engine has a few more miles on it. I see there is a forum on that topic I have been reading.

Welcome to the forum

I test drove a Santa Fe and found it slow and heavy feeling (non-hybrid), but man the storage in that thing is so well thought out! makes me wonder what's hiding behind all that plastic that they couldn't add more cubby's, or maybe it's a selling point to make people upgrade.

Welcome! Aside from some design/tech oversights/annoyances, we have 1,000 miles on our 2022 Tucson Limited Hybrid and so far are only seeing around 25mpg over-all - which in theory should improve with engine break-in, etc. I installed a Class 3 hitch (to have the 2" receiver for our bike carrier) and harness ("just in case"), WeatherTech floor liners, a cargo net from Amazon, stuff like that. We're still waiting for roof cross rails that are formally approved for the panoramic roof. While there are a several annoyances, our main one being that the seat position memory for drivers 1 & 2 don't save and adjust the exterior mirror positions, so whenever we switch drivers each has to be adjusted manually. I, too, have to catch up on a few forum topics!

I don't have the package you do, but I think I've read the mirrors can move with the seat. The confusion is the seat has 2 positions per each driver profile. If you select the driver profile it will move the mirrors and seat together.

You probably have 2 seat positions on the same driver profile.

Again, just what I've read, my SEL doesn't have the driver profile thing.

Nope, we have two distinctly separate driver settings and the exterior mirrors definitely do not move with the seats... there are lots of complaints about this in other forum conversations.

Bummer, my misunderstanding then

I do wish my SEL even had seat memory, at least it's powered in this car lol

Nope - just another thing in the manual that's wrong! (I have the top Ultimate trim in Canada.)

Welcome to the forum! I picked-up my calypso red 2022 Limited 4 weeks ago and have enjoyed every moment of the 800 miles I’ve driven. So far, I’m averaging just over 23 MPG - which is about what I expected during break-in.

Welcome Capt. Pete.
I too have a Limited. Great vehicle.
I do have an issue with the forward collision system. It needs adjusting because I can't pass another car without the system going crazy, applies the brakes momentarily, warning light and audible sounds at mid point through the pass.
Our Tucson was 3200 miles and the milage is really good. We are averaging 33 mpg. I do drive sensible. I don't use the onboard computer as it reads high. Gallons used by miles driven.
This vehicle seems well made and a perfect size for us.
Congrats on your new Tucson.

Yup, you have the right attitude about the mileage. It usually takes several thousand miles for the engine to break in to get your expected mpg. The colder weather doesn’t help either. You should be seeing improvements over time.
