2006 Hyundai Tucson Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 23,424 miles


My Hyundai Tucson will stall each time the vehicle is driven steadily at highway speed for 20 miles or so. Getting back on surface streets it begins to suddenly downshift into 2nd or first when slowing or braking. Following this, the vehicle will stall if it gets slow enough or you come to a stop. I fear being rearended or left in a lane to restart with traffic bearing down. The internet has several instances of the same problem with no resolution from Hyundai. I add my information, in hope it will save someone and solve the problem. I have owned the vehicle 4 months and I'm the 3rd owner, bought from Hyundai lot.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Hyundai Tucson. Within a month of purchasing the vehicle, the transmission failed with less than 1,000 miles. The dealer replaced the transmission. The hazard and turn signal lights failed also and were replaced by the dealer. Two days later, the lights stopped working again. They were replaced a second time, but then failed again. The lights have failed approximately six times and have not been properly repaired. The dealer informed the contact that he uses his directionals too much and the hazard lights too long. The VIN, engine size, and number of cylinders were unknown. The failure mileage was under 1,000 and current mileage was 30,100.
