#18 of 19 Azera Strut Question/CR
Apr 10, 2008 (12:36 pm)
The dealer replaced the -041 struts with -040's a few months ago with some improvement. I took the covers off the tops and noticed the below.
The center post has a nut with a green mark on it.
The round top plate under the nut has two green lines.
One of the three posts holding the strut has a green dot in the center>
Does anyone know what these marks mean?
Should they all be lined up together or in some fashion? They aren't now.
If the strut is new, why are the colors all the same lime green?
Thanks guys. I know some of you are tired of hearing me bring this up, but I really do believe it can be fixed and Hyundai (and we) will be the better for it.
BTW, got a reply from Consumer Reports re: their ratings in the April 2008 issue. Based on the fact there were few problems reported in 2006, but a lot reported on the 2007, they downgraded the 2007, but kept the high recommendations for the 2008 Hyundai. Weird! Sounds like a sampling problem to me.
#19 of 19 azeras crappy ride

my azera rides like crap too. i'll take an old camry anyday. wife is making us sell it now. im gonna try yoko avid trz. i did my research on consumer reports and basicly started looking for most comfortable tires, then wet handling characteristics from there. just waiting on a tire sale now. the michelin energy mxv4's that are on it now were rated much poorer in ride quality. however, i've seen a lexus es300 that had these on it and i bet he wasn't complaining about the ride. oh well, im gonna try the tires cause the cars not selling.
