You are in the Hyundai Azera
What is this discussion about?
Hyundai Azera, Car Buying, Sedan
Oct 22, 2012 (3:13 pm)
We bought the Santa Fe and Azera from a dealership called Withnell Hyundai and they have been like best friends. We recently had a mishap in Lincoln City where some ass clown vandalized the car and broke the rear window. We had to drive to Salem to get a replacement and the dealership were most accommodating and had it replaced the same day we took the car in.
We have had no issues with the transmission in either car.

This transmission issue is an easy fix as the dealer mechanic told me. Install a flight recorder in the car and LEAVE it there so it can record the next hicup. Not understanding why they would rather go to arbitration rather than do this unless they real don't want to know what is wrong.

The car has 70k and is 5 years old. Most articles I have read says change them around 60k. Anyone done this on the 2007?

The arbitration did not help. They denied my request to leave the flight recorder in the car.The BBB claimed they do not have the authority to tell Hyundai how to evaluate my car.I would not reccommend going to Arbitration if something is wrong. Also, when you buy a new car , you can opt out of having to use Hyundai's arbitration. I would certainly do that to protect your rights. At least I have documented the problem so if something happens to me my wife will have a good chance of winning in court.
#950 of 967 Where is the Auto Headlight sensor?

Just had a windshield replaced. Not sure they are still working.

Hi: The automatic headlight switch is on the left arm of the steering column. The windshield has nothing to do with the auto headlight switch. If you meant the auto windshield washer it is on the right side of the column.
Hope this helps.

#954 of 967 Hyundai and lack of customer service
Feb 06, 2013 (8:15 pm)
Well I have had it with Hyundai. I have been taking my 07 Azera in for servicing and suspension noises. I have the struts changed twice as well as the upper control arm was cracked and they replaced it. I was as La Quinta Hyundai in southern California and they replaced the rubber bushings in the control arm to eliminate the squeaking but no the clunking when you drive over any crack in the pavement. They said the car was out of warranty by three months and they would not honour replacement of the struts or the previous repair of the bushings for the control arm. I was a great promoter for Hyundai and now that will no longer be the case. Hyundai knows it has a suspension problem with all the comments in edmunds site and they refuse to resolve it.
The whole situation at La Quinta Hyundai was a nightmare and would not recommend anyone trying to purchase a new car to stay away from here. This is not how customers should be treated.
#955 of 967 Suspension Clunk

Okay...I'm proud to say that I've owned my '06 Azera for the last 7 years and put just over 146k miles on it. I've read all the posts about people complaining about the clunk noise, which I didn't experience until about 80-90k miles. All the years of going to the dealer and having them look at it, not one time did a mechanic ever mention anything about the sway bar bushings. My mechanic told me that sway bar bushings can wear out anywhere between 20-80k miles. So...I am going to order them and have him install them and I'll come back and let you guys know if it resolved the infamous clunk noise or not. I tried to find some silicone aftermarket bushings to no avail, so I will just try to order the best ones I can find.
