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.

problem #2

Jun 012015

Tucson 2.0L V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles


I had this problem from the moment I bought the vehicle. The steering refuses to come back to its original position after you turn it to either side. I reported it to the local service station in Ibra and they test drove it but they wouldn't admit it as a real problem. They said the steering is not powered by steering oil but by a motor which is why it doesn't act like a normal steering. I haven't understood this explanation yet. I need to be turning the wheel all the time even while driving on straight roads. It is really annoying.

Has anyone got the same problem? What is the solution?
