I had the exact same thing happen to me last week. Turned out to be the same problem. Contacted Hyundai road service, they had a tow truck to me within 30 minutes. The local Hyundai dealership (Merced, CA) had me back on the road within 48 hours. Everything covered by warranty - no money out of my pocket. I was truly impressed with Hyundai's service and response to this issue. They even upgraded the maps in my nav unit at no cost.

Replaced my 2008 grille with a 2009-10 grille which IMO looks much better, especially since my Azera is painted Black Onyx Pearl. Grille is available from Parts.com MOBIS OEM P/N 863513L500 for $96.09. Simple replacement, took about one hour. Also replaced the flying "H" with a aftermarket Luxury Generation badge front and rear available from KAI, just to be different.

Havnt been here in awhile, so sorry for the extremely late reply. It was fully covered under warranty ... didn't cost me anything out of pocket except my time.

I had the same problem and persued the alarm arming angle. Three dead batteries, one new one and 3 visits to the dealer. They couldn't have been nicer but they also gave me the don't let it sit longer than a few days answer. Finally they found (with the help of a district tech rep) that the module for the seat presets was shot and the seat motors were draining the battery. Disabled the module and my car has been fine since. I have not yet had the new part installed but at least I know that I can trust the car now.

It's interesting that your problem involved the seat presets module. In my case, the second time I brought it to the dealer the problem vanished. My wife wonders if they didn't just slip in a new battery after they realized the original one was defective. The car, which now has about 23K on it, seems to improve with use. Riding qualities are much better now that an 13K. Went on a 2,200 trip South--got 26.8 MPG---no problems. Right now I'm hearing reciprecating noise up front,
like a bearing or something. Dealer sez its the tires. Tires were rotated--still the same noise. They're wearing out pretty fast.

Haven't shared your electrical problem. Have a 2007 Limited bought new. Love the car, especially value vs price. Consistently get 25 mpg and no performance issues ... except two. After rotating original equipment Michelin's constant thump-thump sound. Not wearing out, but I will be replacing now at 38,000 miles. Disappointing. Second is a rattle in the dash that seems to be getting worse. When I asked the dealer about it a year or so ago, service manager said it's a $1,000 effort to attempt fix and no guarantee of success.

Similar problem on my 08'. Took it in and they took the entire dash out and found at least part of the problem. Still has slight rattles, but not as bad. Seems to be worse during cold days.

hello. i have an grandeur tg which is azera with 3.3 v6 for europe. and had same problem of instabile car over bumps. i added an profesional made strut bar (very rigid) and the result its no more longer hyundai azera. it is very very stable even at high speeds. i would also like to add an under fender reinforcement. if you have any idees were to get one would be gratefull.
by the way you are very right and almeet 33 is wrong. stability and predictability is all about chassis stifness. BMW are very stable becouse of super rigid chassis. BM does not even have a double wish bone susspension which is a very good sus setup. cheers
