#8 of 17 Dashboard has been replaced.

Just got my 2008 Azera back from the dealership. They replaced dashboard under warranty. So far so good. We will see how long it lasts because there were reports on other Azera forums that replaced dash also cracked later.

Good luck to us all with the replacement dashboards and new tires. Hopefully, the replaced dashboards will not have squeaks. Thanks for sharing.

Re: cobrazera's message of August 13....
Wouldn't it be just PEACHY if the Hyundai organization had somebody who monitored messages on this site who had the gonads to forward them to one who would actually get off his butt, demand that action be taken to take care of thoroughly disgruntled customers like us?
Doesn't Hyundai realize what fools they are to ignore us? It's not only that they might lose us as potential repeat buyers, but our comments, read by people who are willing to give Hyundai a shot, are going to cause them to turn to a competitor instead, so they'll lose new customers too!

Yes, it would be nice; I believe the Hyundai forums are monitored by Hyundai staff; not sure. However, I would think they look at posts on Edmunds.com. There was a post on the Hyundai forums about an individual who's dashboard cracked after the warranty had expired. The dealer highly recommended replacement at around $2K; the poster reported the issue to one of the consumer protection departments as a safety issue.
I was "that close" to buying a 2012 Azera until I learned about the front end (tire whooping noise) and dashboard problems others had just like me. Now I'm not sure about Hyundai quality/self initiated recall process for fixing known problems. Than God for the five year warranty.

I had the same issue. Bought an 06 Azera in Aug. 08. Dash cracked just a couple of months later. Dealership replaced it under warrenty with no problem. After 4 yrs., no cracking yet. So far, replacement better than OEM. Hope it continues as am now out of warrenty.

I finally had the dash of my 2008 Azera replaced by the dealer under warranty at the end of November. So far so good. However, the dealer first did a shabby job; some of the electronics didn't work (left plug disconnected), and there were some other issues. The good news is that they resolved the problems. Now I need to get my tires replaced to get rid of the awful whooping sound when driving.

Had the dash in my 06 Azera replaced under warranty in 2011. Replaced my OEM Michelins with Yoko AS530's 30k and still quiet 51K.

Thanks - I'll see if I can find them locally. What stores usually carry Yoko tires?
