I have a 2007 Azera & even I had my dash replaced about 2 months ago. I am surprised that Hyundai doesn't seem to have their process rectified. A number of other owners have had their dash replaced & yours is one of the few who have had a second brush with this.
I hope this doesn't become a annual ritual. If it happens again to my car, I'm Lemon Lawing it!

anyone know why Hyundai won't sell rubber floor mats in the USA for the Azera? I had to call a dealer in Canada to get OEM black rubber floor mats shipped to me in the US. They fit perfectly as all others I found were too narrow to fit the wide front and back sections. They were $98 Canadian but I had to pay $40 for S&H.
The guy in Canada said maybe Hyundai doesn't think it snows in the US?! They have them for the Veracruz which is based on the Azera platform.

Is this dash cracking problem limited to 2007 Azeras and older? Or are there 2008 (and potential 2009 models) with similar issues?

I haven't heard any issues with 08 or 09 models having the cracked dash. But then again, they haven't been out in the market for that long (08s & 09s have been out only few months).
I sure hope Hyundai has rectified any issues with their manufacturing. I looked at the receipt when my dash was replaced & boy was I glad that Hyundai was paying for it!
But of the 40-50k Azeras sold since it's introduction, the number of cracekd dash have been minuscule. I think it might just be a bad run & not a common occurrence.

Hey Windycity, can you post the details of the dealer you got the OEM all-weather mats? I want to also purchase them.

Hi: Has anyone had to have the timing chain tensioner replaced in their Azera yet? We have only 7000 Miles on ours and it rattles like a diesel when starting after a few hours.
We spoke with the dealership and they said they had replaced the Sonata timing chain tensioner but were not aware of the trouble in the Azera models.
Also the dash has started to crack on the passenger side at the airbag area.

There was a recall on early Azeras for a cam tensioner problem, something about a ratchet mechanism that held the tensioner in position when the car was shut off. A TSB was involved - if your Azera only has 7K miles, though, I assume it's a later version. Your dealerership must not have sold any '06 Azeras if they never heard of it.
My Azera does some rattling for a couple miles on cold starts ( more noticeable now that winter is here ) and I'm assuming that it's piston slap. I say that because the sound is the same as my 2001 Tahoe made under the same conditions. That car had buyers up in arms for supposed reduced resale value due to piston slap. I never got the Tahoe fixed, it was a very minor inconvenience which did not affect reliability or longevity of the engine. So I'm not very concerned about my Azera.
I do take it easy for the first few miles after a cold start, though - something which I do with any car, whether it has piston slap or not...Richard

Shortly after purchasing the car I got the OEM rubber floormats (set of four) for $38.
They match the carpet mats perfectly. Clear rubber allows the carpet color to show. Nubbed backing prevents them from moving. They now are around $45. Not sure how these prices compare to others. Here's the site.
