#1 of 19 My 2007 Azera rides really rough
May 31, 2007 (4:23 am)
I just bought a 2007 Azera Limited. I did my homework and found it to be all I wanted in a luxery car. However, once I took possession of it I discovered I felt every bump in the road. It did not ride like a luxery car should ride. I understand "stiff suspension" but I am really disappointed in the ride of this car. Maybe I'm the only one who feels this way, but has anyone else been bothered by the rough ride of their Azera?

Check your tire pressures. The dealer often times forgets to reduce the pressure the tires have from shipping to the recommended levels. The tires may have in excess of 40 PSI when shipped and that will cause a very rough ride if not reduced.

As pointed out above, tire pressures (PSI) play a really big roll.
Get yeh over to Pep Boys or some other source and purchase a good tire gauge.
Check your tire pressures when the tires are cold, before you have driven, and preferably when the car has been in the garage.
In other words, not out in the sun.
You have the factory 17 inch wheels.
This can and does make a slight difference due to the lower aspect ratio of the factory 17 inch tires.
I will bet that your tire pressures are far to high. The key here is experimentation!

My 07 Azera does seem to have a bumpier ride than my 95 Bonneville did. I adjusted the pressure to 30 PSI but that didn't help much. I don't know if its the suspension, seats or what. But bumps are definitley more pronounced than they were on my old Pontiac. This is my only complaint with the car other than the dark colored oil dip stick is hard to read. It needs some holes to make it easier to guage. I think I can live with a little bit of a bumpy ride as long as the car proves to be reliable which so far it has been with only 1500 miles.
