2011 Hyundai Tucson Reliability - Consumer Reports
The Tucson handles responsively and securely. Its civilized powertrain yields good fuel economy. The Hyundai also has a reasonably spacious and well-trimmed interior with easy-to-use controls. However, a stiff ride and pronounced road noise take away from the driving experience. Further, the swoopy styling robs cargo space and inhibits the view to the rear.

Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for over 300,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2021 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2011 Hyundai Tucson owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

In-car Electronics

CD or DVD players, radio, speakers, GPS, communication system (e.g., OnStar), display screen freezes or goes blank, phone pairing (e.g. Bluetooth), voice control commands, steering wheel controls, portable music device interface (e.g., iPod/MP3 player), backup or other camera/sensors.

What Owners Say

Backup or other camera/sensors

"We had the back up camera replaced at about 63000 miles. Hyundai was nice enough to replace it under warranty even though we were out of the warranty period"

Michael M., OH (2011 Hyundai Tucson Limited 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"Camera started working intermittently and now has stopped working completely"

David K., CA (2011 Hyundai Tucson Limited 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"Camera went black but no problem found with camera and problem resolved at dealership somehow without any actual repairs"

Anonymous, WA (2011 Hyundai Tucson 2.4-L 4 Cyl)
Display screen freezes up

"Cold weather"

"freezes, disappears, or stops working. They don't tell you about the reset button until it happens"

Anonymous, FL (2011 Hyundai Tucson Limited 2.4-L 4 Cyl)
Display screen goes blank

"Frequently when i first start the car the display screen will not open but just shows a random raster scan. sometimes it comes back in a few minute, sometimes well over half an hour. Dealer cost to fix/replace ($500) too expensive to worry about. Not really a safety issue except somewhat distracting, In any case even when it is functioning properly, the location and layout of the screen almost always makes it very difficult to read because of glare problems"

Nancy S., VA (2011 Hyundai Tucson 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"Cold weather"

Anonymous, MO (2011 Hyundai Tucson Limited 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"The screen that displays the radio is blurry and can not be read."

Anonymous, (2011 Hyundai Tucson Limited 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"There was a recall on the 2011 Hyundai vehicles because the screens went black unless vehicle has been ran for quite some time. When I asked about it, I was told my particular vehicle. Found it odd, that it was doing the exact same thing as the others, but they wouldn't fix it. While Hyundai seems to have a good warranty, the things that go out, should not. Switches, Display screens, etc."

Anonymous, NY (2011 Hyundai Tucson Limited 2.4-L 4 Cyl)
Calipers

"I live in Ohio and the slide pins on the calipers corrode and stick due to the brine/salt they use during the Winters. It's not a only Hyundai problem though. I have a 2012 Ford Fusion company car and the same issue occured. In fact the Ford was w"

What Owners Say

A/C compressor

"I thought it should last longer"

Chester B., WA (2011 Hyundai Tucson GLS 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"This is the second total AC unit that has needed replacing. When it happens, you have to replace the entire AC compressor, hoses, condenser, fan, and coolant. This is even if you have preventative maintenance done. I am not sure if it is because I live in Las Vegas' brutal summers, but the cooling system is average at best, never reaching a comfortable cool unless it is turned all the way to low, maximum fan and on Max Cool. But even then, it is either too cold or not cold enough...never a sweet spot."

Gear selector or linkage

"This has been an on-going problem for 3+ years now whereby the car would not start, would not shift into our out of gear and would shift rough. Took it into the dealer 6 or 7 times for this, including 3 long distance tows, and they could not diagnose. In January 2019 it had been towed again and in frustration I started searching Google. To my surprise immediately up popped YouTube video after YouTube video with the same problems on this vehicle or other similar Hyundai models. I then looked up and found a Technical Service Bulletin from Hyundai on the very issue and description of what I was bring it in for each time. The dealer did not acknowledge that I assisted but within 15 minutes of my directing them to the TSB I received notice that they were able to replicate the problem after they had the car for a week straight and were unable to replicate the problems."

Rough shifting

"actually not rough shifting ,it would bare move the because tramsmission ,leaked rapidly from the transmission"

"When I drive in reverse in a slanted surface (i.e. driveway), stop the vehicle, and change the gear back to drive and start driving forward, sometimes the transmission kicks and the car jumps a little bit forward. I had this problem at 9,000 miles, and the dealer changed the transmission under warranty. I have started noticing this problem again ever since passing the 93,000 miles"

EXTERIOR LIGHTING
Apr 01, 2013
Failure to illuminate the stop lamps during braking or inability to disengage the cruise control could increase the risk of a crash. Additionally, when the ignition is in the 'ON' position, the transmission shifter may be able to be moved out of Park without first applying the brake. This may lead to unintentional movement of the car which may increase the risk of a crash.
Summary:
Hyundai Motor Company (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2006-2009 Accent, model year 2007-2011 Azera, Sonata and Sante Fe,2006-2011 Tucson, 2009-2011 Elantra Touring, 2007-2010 Elantra, 2008-2011 Veracruz, 2009-2011 Genesis, 2010-2011 Genesis Coupe, 2007-2008 Entourage, and 2006-2008 Tiburon vehicles. Originally, in April 2013, Hyundai recalled 1,059,824 model year 2007-2009 Accent and Tucson, model year 2007-2010 Elantra, model year 2007-2011 Santa Fe, model year 2008-2009 Veracruz, model year 2010-2011 Genesis Coupe, and model year 2011 Sonata vehicles.
