Notes: The 2016 Tucson comes with a dual-clutch, 7-speed transmission. But Hyundai forgot to tell you about one key phrase – zero-move. That's right, an alarming number of owners have said their SUV wouldn't accelerate after a stop.

Turns out that's because the transmission's application logic has been stumbling all over itself. Hyundai recalled the issue in September 2016, but it's difficult to say if owners are out-of-the-woods, or if this is just a sign of things to come.

2016 Hyundai Tucson Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 012016

Tucson Limited 4-cyl Turbo

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,000 miles


My 2016 Hyundai Tucson was advertised as coming equipped with Apple CarPlay. It wasn't until I arrived to finalize the paperwork and pick up my specific vehicle from the dealer that I found out the the final version had not been released to hyundai yet and would be made available via an update later on. That was back in August of 2015. Now it's almost April 2016 and i still haven't heard ANYTHING from Hyundai. I can appreciate that this is probably being held up by Apple, but I would think that it would be in Hyundai's interest to take some ownership of the issue and communicate progress to their customers or provide some type of benefit given that functionality which I have already paid for has yet to be delivered.
