We've had a 2008 Veracruz Limited for over 2 yrs and not a single problem. I travel about half the time and rent lots of cars. Regardless of the caliber of rental car, I'm always impressed when I get back behind the wheel of the Veracruz. It never fails to impress. Comparable to a Lexus RX at the price of a ho-hum Nissan, and equal quality to the Lexus.
This is the 3rd Hyundai that we have owned. Between the first 2 we put close to 140,000 miles without incidents. That spoke loudly to us about the quality we were getting in the Veracruz. I have severe back problems and with our previous car (2007 Azera limited) it was becoming harder to get in and out of the car because of lowering your body down to seat. I am over 6' in height now with the Veracruz I just move straight and sit. No bending over and pulling myself up and out. This SUV really made my life easier. We also wanted a vehicle that would meet future needs as far as mobility carriers like scooter or wheelchairs. Our Azera had every feature under the sun and I knew that I could not afford a SUV with those features. The Veracruz comes close though with many of the needed and a few new items such as the backup sensors, remote hatch open and navigation just to name a few. This SUV is very comfortable and spacious. It rides is sure footed like a truck and it has the same motor that Azera had which is the 3.8 V6. While it won't be first in any race, it will finish the race. Gas MPG has been a surprising 20 MPG around town which is all we drive and we found that better then the 17 we got with the Azera all though my wife tended to have a lead foot with the Azera. It sits up and has a better stance the other SUV's we looked at. My wife loves it as she can see better sitting up higher as we do in the SUV. The Veracruz is a great SUV. We love it.
Beautiful vehicle, handles and rides like a dream. Wished it had a backup camera and navigation. Inconvenience of having to manually fold side view mirror, also not being able to adjust door lock opening when key removed
