Check out all my posts and you will see lots of very favorable comments re: Azera and Hyundai. I have always said it would be a 10 if it did not bounce/wobble and I believe Hyundai can fix that. Just as I believe the 2010 Genesis will have an improved susppension.
BTW, I am not going to pay $200, much less $2,000 to experiment and see if it can be corrected - and violate warranty in the process.

1) Warranty: What's the difference? You've complained previous that Hyundai doesn't listen to your complaints, AND that the replacement shocks don't fix the problem anyway.
2) "Experiment": I don't consider it an experiment. As reported by at least one Azera owner on boards like this one, I consider it a fix. Still, it's your money and your kiester.

$2000 for coilovers is 2000 too much to spend on a problem that should be fixed at no cost to the customer. Especially based on the comments of one person on a forum.
Coliovers are designed for flat tracks. Even the adjustable ones on the soft setting will wear out soon on normal roads with all the bumps, humps , broken pavement etc...

gang, it happens on ALL CDs - burned or commercial, have not tried MP3 CDs yet.
Happens when parked, or on the freeway, happens with the engine off.

Considering it only happens with CD's and not the AM/FM section of the head unit, I would be lead to believe that the CD reader could be defective, and yes...it's possible that a whole batch of head units could share the same problem. I would keep going back to the dealer and keep having them replace the head unit until you get one that plays correctly. I know it could be a hassle, but there's no way to know when a good one will come along. Maybe the next one will be it, you know...3rd time's a charm, right?

Yes, it "should." But we're not talking ideals here. His actual situation is that he loves all but one thing about his car, hates its ride, and has one viable fix available to him. Should he keep bee-yotching, or use it? I think that one answers itself.

Arghh - the dealer wants me to bring it in Monday - they say the CD skipping
may be an electrical problem - and just 1/2 an hour ago, I could not accellerate
faster than 35 MPH, then it would not go faster than 3 MPH with the check engine light on. I parked, waited, and the check engine light was on - but I could drive again.
ARGHH - the wife was right - not a reliable car it seems. Hope it makes it to the dealer, won't be taking freeways.
#559 of 628 it was a chip they say

After 30 hours at the dealer, they called. They say it was a bad chip that caused the speed, and check engine light problems. They say maybe it fixed the CD player issue too. They gave me a free loaner car. I like the service part of Hyundia in San Jose...

It might be premature to say 'WOO Hoo, yahoo!" - but since they re-flashed the chips, all problems including the skipping CD player seem fixed. So, it was not a bad head problem - it was a bad bit in a chip problem. Just 2 CDs tested so far, but not one skip. Before i'd get 100 skips per CD.

I wonder what they might have done. As far as I know, the car's ECU isn't connected to the headunit. Would reflashing ECU affect stereo headunit in any way?
allmet, you are the audio guru. Any ideas?
