1004 03+2010 Hyundai Tucson Limited+front Three Quarter View
Wow, another great Hyundai interior! And another reminder of how Hyundai is breathing heavily down Toyota's neck. Why? I just drove a Toyota RAV4, and it was priced at $28,761, slightly more than this Tucson at $28,090. Both were front-wheel-drive four-cylinder models, but the Toyota is saddled with a four-speed automatic, whereas the Tucson has a much more modern six-speed automatic, which helps the Hyundai achieve 2 mpg better on the highway, according to the EPA. This from an engine that is nearly identical to the RAV4's in size and output. Interestingly, Hyundai has two different horsepower and torque ratings for its Theta II engine: the standard 176 hp and 168 lb-ft of torque, or 170 hp and 163 lb-ft in the so-called "green states"; with that state of tune, the Tucson qualifies as a PZEV, or Partial Zero Emission Vehicle.

The wretched economy of the past year has been a boon to Hyundai, which enjoyed its biggest-ever market share in 2009. Hyundai's Tucson, though, has been a laggard: fewer than one-tenth as many have been sold as the segment-leading Honda CR-V. The redesigned, 2010 Tucson should fare better. First of all, it has shed the stubby look of its predecessor. The new car is lower, wider, and longer but is about fifty pounds lighter.

Small crossovers, it seems, are all the rage. Not only is General Motors running its plants at overtime to build the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain, but Hyundai is already increasing production of its all-new 2010 Tucson to meet consumer demand.

Accountants at Hyundai have prepared the company's fourth-quarter balance sheet, and to no surprise, the Korean automaker performed very well for the last three months of 2009. The company raked in a net profit of nearly $822 million in the fourth quarter alone.

Summary
Hyundai Motor Company (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2006-2009 Accent, model year 2007-2011 Azera, Sonata and Sante Fe,2006-2011 Tucson, 2009-2011 Elantra Touring, 2007-2010 Elantra, 2008-2011 Veracruz, 2009-2011 Genesis, 2010-2011 Genesis Coupe, 2007-2008 Entourage, and 2006-2008 Tiburon vehicles. Originally, in April 2013, Hyundai recalled 1,059,824 model year 2007-2009 Accent and Tucson, model year 2007-2010 Elantra, model year 2007-2011 Santa Fe, model year 2008-2009 Veracruz, model year 2010-2011 Genesis Coupe, and model year 2011 Sonata vehicles. In September 2013, Hyundai informed the agency that it was adding more vehicles to this campaign, representing an additional 652,512 units. The total number of vehicles being recalled is now 1,712,336. In the affected vehicles, the stop lamp switch may malfunction. A malfunctioning stop lamp switch may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause an inability to deactivate the cruise control by depressing the brake pedal. Additionally, a malfunctioning stop lamp switch may also result in intermittent operation of the push-button start feature, affect the operation of the brake transmission shift interlock feature, preventing the shifter from being moved out of the PARK position and cause the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) malfunction light to illuminate.
Consequences
Failure to illuminate the stop lamps during braking or inability to disengage the cruise control could increase the risk of a crash. Additionally, when the ignition is in the 'ON' position, the transmission shifter may be able to be moved out of Park without first applying the brake. This may lead to unintentional movement of the car which may increase the risk of a crash.
Remedy
Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the stop lamp switch, free of charge. The safety recall began on April 22, 2013. Owners may contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai's recall campaign number is 110.
