"Do yourself a favor. I just bought a 2008 Limited (Ultimate Pkg) for $17,500. That's almost 1/2 of the MSRP when it went on the road in April"
Perhaps better to say, 'good deals can be found on low milage near new Azera's'. The Korean, Fountain Valley suits and US Hyundai dealers monitor these pages. Why be specific?

I have seen several 2008 Limited Azeras with the ultimate pkg at Carmax for 19998. I had plans on buying one of these this weekend, until I saw your post stating that you bought one for 17500. Could you tell me the details on the purchase of your Azera?

A reporter is looking to talk with consumer who bought a Hyundai in January and was "assured" by the Hyundai Assurance program. Please send your email address and phone number to jfallonedmunds.com today, February 4, 2008, if you fit the bill.

What's to hide?? These cars are everywhere-just run a cars.com search of 2008 Azera and use "limited" in the search field. What are the suits going to do? These cars are going off at auctions for market price (which right now is about $16K. Supply and demand...
My feeling is the more data out there, the better.

I think I just found a dealer who flips them (he specializes in auctioned Hyundai's). Carmax and other big dealers have large overhead to cover and looking to make $3-5K on used cars. I bought mine from a smaller dealer. Between the 1 week I bought the car and the day I picked it up, he mentioned that auction prices had gone up about $1K, so it is really about the timing.
Good Luck, you won't be disappointed. My last 3 cars (all brand new) GS430, VW Phaeton, LS430. After driving the Azera for a few weeks, I will never drive a new car again, let alone one that is $70K+. I can't wait for the used Genesis' to hit the market in 2010 when the first off-lease vehicles start to hit.
#1048 of 1119 Which model has nav?

Ultimate Pkg doesn't seem to have nav. Which pkg has nav and what is the premium? After having nav, I must admit I am spoiled and want it in my next car.

Factory navs are terrible..go buy a Garmin or TomTom for less than $200. They are light years ahead of anything installed. I too have had navs in my last 4 cars, I went and bought a Nuvi760 Refurb from Radio Shack for $179 (normally $599), and it blows away anything factory installed nav.

I just bought one for 16900 w/17k, w/ult pkg, what a STEAL! I found an auto broker who prices his cars 500 over what he bought it for. Murphdog1 you are so right, I will never buy new again either, especially now that I got a "guy" who i can call and tell him exactly what i want and he will buy it at auction for me. I am so happy to save 3k, I was so close to buying one a Carmax for 20k. The only dissapointing thing about my purchase was I thought I was going to get the 100k warranty until I read the details on line and found out it will come with a 5/60 because I am not the original owner. I am thinking about using some of my saving to buy a warranty.

Great Find Chris...good news is you don't have to decide on an extended warranty for another 4 years or 43K miles!!!
AAA offers very inexpensive and comprehensive warranty programs.
Enjoy the ride..I have had a blast in mine for a month.
It actually is liberating driving buy cars I used to drive and thinking I know more than they do....
#1052 of 1119 EMISSION CONTROLS
Feb 15, 2009 (9:53 pm)
I am considering purchasing a 2008 Azera Limited from out of state. I live in California and would purchase possibly from CO, PA, IL or another state. I believe that the emission controls are all the same now and any Azera would meet my states requirements. Can anyone confirm if this is in fact correct?
Also, I would like to know about the seat comfort on this model for trips of 100 or more miles. Is the leather stiff, how is the seat padding, is the seat back/lumbar comfortable and are the adjustments adequate, especially for the front passenger. Any other information with regards to driver and passenger comfort would be appreciated.
