So last month, my mom was able to buy a used car and rid herself of a piece of dung. She ended up getting a 2007 Tucson GLS with only a little over 17k miles. It has the 2.0L DOHC 4-cylinder with the 4 speed automatic. It did need a couple of things taken care of on it, including napkins in and around the cabin air filter (restricting a/c air flow), as well as a bent control arm, but it runs fine.

She took it on a trip to Oklahoma last weekend with 2 passengers and some cargo, and if she did the math correctly, she got approximately 26 MPG. The revised EPA ratings from 2008 on this vehicle are 19 City and 25 Highway. Not too shabby!

She gets a little under the City rating in normal driving, but she doesn't drive far and if she is picking up my nephew from school, she'll be waiting in the car with the engine idling. I've gone out and filled her gas tank for her and measured 17-18 MPG for those tanks.

Thank goodness these Tucsons are said to be very reliable. smile.gif

Not bad at all! City driving mileage all depends on how you take off from a stop

Oh no, I'm so sorry... the correct answer is The Moops.

The packaging clearly stated '100'. I'm short ONE luft balloon.
