RE: Gen. III Tucson 1.6T

Greetings Fellow Tuners.

Any longterm owners of the model with the 1.6L Turbocharged I4 engine paired with the 7 Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT)?

I have concerns about the efficiency and longterm longevity of the 1.6 turbo engine and DCT (DSG) transmission.

NB: The 2019 facelift has retained the same 1.6T engine. No more 2.0L.

Experiences Anyone?

Have mine for about 20 months. Just crossed 30000km, no issues thus far. It is very fast tho. More power than the 2.0. I never serviced at the firm. Good all round vehicle to own.

I purchased 1. have it a mth now. its a car to get used too. not a ladies ride at all. I love it. but its been a mth and still getting use to the driving dynamics of that transmission. so far I have experience slips 4 times. at 500kms it refused to climb a steep hill. kept neutralising. but owners manual said first 1500kms it may be prone to this. other times were pretty slight. now I am up to 3000kms and it has broken in nicely. yesterday I was in traffic on highstreet in san Fernando and I kept getting the warning to cease riding the accelerator, depress brakes. hated that since I knew I wasn't abusing it then. overall I think its quite fun. but you gotta have patience with it at first. I think its a good buy

Thanks for the feedback guys. So far it seems like a good buy.

Anyone else?
