    It rarely uses the back wheels. The 6 speed is more efficient and way more powerful.

    Well is it petrol or diesel?

    I have an 05 2wd Tucson. Heavy on diesel which does approx 650kms on a full tank (€70ish). Bulletproof otherwise with 180K kms without issue.

    how do you mean rarely uses back wheels,is it set in a way that the diff only cuts in if needed if you were on slippy mucky hilly ground. Alot of people say they are not troublesome but i know very little about them.

    I've heard awful bad stories about the diesel (I'm assuming it's the same engine as the Trajet). Two Hyundai dealers warned me off it and I came across two, one was burning oil and one was generally fubbered.

    I think that's exactly how it works.

    Same idea as the CX7. Only kicks into 4WD when you're losing traction.
