    Awesome car! What a coincidence, my wife is buying a Sapphire Black X5 5.0L in the next few days. She ordered the black kidney grills with it

    Just picked up the wifey a Hyundai Tucson Limited in Black this afternoon. Will be a replacement for her Jetta TDI which we bought in 2014 brand new as well. VW has paid me dearly for that ordeal haha.

    Let me know if you/your wife notice erratic behavior from the dual-clutch transmission, including poor throttle response, inconsistent shifting, and bogging/jerking in low-speed driving. If your vehicle already has the latest software update, and/or your dealer won't do anything about it, I would advise you to get in touch with the lawyers who are investigating a class-action lawsuit against Hyundai: http://www.hyundaidctlawsuit.com/

    She's put about 3k miles on it so far and not a single issue. The Jetta also had a dual clutch tranny and they both drive very similar. I love how they drive compared to a regular automatic, shift points and drive feels similar to when I drove a manual transmission. Can't have a manual in the house with someone that can't drive it, and man I really miss my driving a manual.

    @saturnotaku do you also live in Illinois? (Looking at the plates).

    Edit: disregard I saw your profile, see you're also in the burbs.

    Interesting you bring up the Jetta because the Tucson DCT, to me, felt like a VW DSG from 10 years ago. Fun to drive, but not without quirks. I've been keeping the Hyundai at my parents' place the last few weeks because I've been reviewing cars again, and the few times my dad has taken it out, he's absolutely hated it. I may, or have him, take it to another dealer for a second opinion as I've read reports online about some dealers not doing the software update correctly. The last time I talked to the lawyers regarding the lawsuit, they said they were engaged in settlement talks. Not sure what's come of it. I'm hoping for at least some small monetary compensation, a lifetime warranty on the transmission, and/or free fluid changes.

    Anyway, yes, I am in the suburbs. But Toyota and Lexus have their regional headquarters in Naperville, which is where their media fleet cars are registered, hence the Illinois plates. Same goes for Hyundai, Subaru, and Mercedes-Benz, though those cars get manufacturer tags.
