I find it's one of the nicest small SUVs available right now. Either that or the Suzuki Grand Vitara, which I believe is more expensive. You should do a search, this sort of topic has been discussed before. Below is one of the many threads.

Best Diesel SUV from the firm

I have been using the diesel model as my daily driver for nearly a year now.

No complaints ( other than having to go to the firm so often for service to maintain the warranty ).

It does not have all the "luxuries" of other models, but for a small - diesel SUV, it does well enough.

Now only if I could find someone selling accessories for it at an "acceptable price" :mrgreen:

I got some prices for the accessories from the place that N&M south gets items from...higher up on the same street ( the name escapes me now). but those prices too high ( more so when I know what the price of the actual item is abroad).

I have to find the place that N&M in north gets items from, I "hear" its cheaper there. :wink:

Nothing worse than having to spend all that money and not get the colour you want. That just sucks. :x

Hi all. :-)

I haven't gotten mine yet but it reached in the country. Bought at Neal n Massey, South.
I had to preorder mine becos none was in stock. When looking at the computer bookings I saw many people already booked theirs so a lot of the vehicles coming in the ship already have people waiting on them.

I should be getting mine in 2weeks.

I was shown accessories today and the price for some things I find so expensive. Am no expert so am not sure if am overreacting

Am trying to recall prices. I was told tint is $350, alarm is $1300.
I like the thing at the front and back tht have the name TUCSON on it. Is that the grill? Forgive me if I don't know names. The front one was $4100 and the back $3500. The silver side rail step up things were $3500.
I was also shown the silver door handles and silver part for over lights and even for wipers. And something for when reversing. All this is thousands of $$$

He told me name of place tht they get it done at but I forgot.

I want to know if there are other places that I can get such accessories for cheaper or thts good prices?

Btw I am in South.
Thanks all...

Just check with the Sales Rep. to ensure that if you do install such accessories outside of the firm that it does not void any of your warranties.

Oh ok. Thanks. I didn't know tht the warranty could be void by adding my own stuff. I would ask.

I wonder if doing my own tint and alarm would void warranty :-/

I don't think so with the tint. With the alarm, even though it's a relatively simple job, it involves the vehicle's electrical system, so I would still check just to be on the safe side.

Right I think it was AutoAir.
But those prices you quoted there are vat exclusive, at least I think so.
Becos when I asked abt the front and rear parts he quoted prices you said there but said vat to be added.

AutoAir has sensors as well ?

Those prices are more than what I was quoted at Auto Air last year...talk about inflation.

The girl at the front desk told me that they give discounts on bulk purchases, so a group buy could help if a few ppl want items.

Do you happen to know if AutoAir sells / isntalls the reverse camera and screen as well , not just the sensor (the one that beeps alone)

Yes, as you come out of N&M head "up" Cipero Street, its on the right side not to far from N&M itself; I think they have a sign.

Oh gosh I asked tht and then saw the address was mentioned above.

But thanks. I would give them a check maybe next week to compare prices.

I see tht NnM sends their vehicles for polishing etc to Chippy's.

Don't know if they also use tht other place but they told me tht its Chippys my vehicle would be going.

When the vehicles coming down from Morvant they drive it down? Been yrs since I saw they transport new vehicles in those huge trucks.

but ent Kazim Ali have them thing also or he just installs it? which one?

I saw one on Frederick St. and boy it look real good. Its the single muffler version so I'm guessing it was the 2.0 DOHC 16V petrol engine. It had sunroof, spoiler, leather seats, side steps (chrome), chrome tail lights and the front semi-bush bar and the rear lower bumper bar with reflector lights mark "TUCSON". The door mirrors and handles were all chromed as well as the rear wiper and it was the 4WD version. That model is around $230k I believe. Not bad, oh the sunroof GLS models have side and head protection airbags, a more powerful audio system with in-dash 6 CD changer and auto climate control. No wonder they flooding the market. Unlike the SGV, this has rear disc brakes!
