2006 Hyundai Azera SE 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Read all the reviews before buying it. could not get more than 14MPG, under any circumstances, hated that the key fob kept hitting the plastic dash and absolutely hated the ride. I was told to wait till I drove it a while before I can expect better gas mileage. At my first oil change, a young mechanic reinstalled the software that runs the engine and I immediately obtained 17.8 MPG around town and 27 MPG on the highway. I installed a plastic change purse over the key fob to silence the key chain. It worked. I stopped by another dealer to complain about the ride. He installed new shocks on the front and it now rides almost acceptably. I only have 8000 miles on it.


Best Features

Styling, stereo, brakes, and drive train.


Worst Features

Overall ride could be completely re-engineered. I think if they did just that and then reintroduce the car, it would be a Camry killer.

2006 Hyundai Azera SE 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I had to replace my 97 Camry. Owning all kinds of cars in the past (Lexus- Benz-Honda-Audi) this one made sense. Things I love: safety features (airbags all around, stability and traction control + the usual - ABS etc.), power (250 hp), transmission (smooth, gear stays on until red zone if you hit it), comfort (seats, rear A/C - heat fan, illuminated power switches, auto up/down window for driver & pass), optional features (front & REAR reading lights, huge trunk, good stereo), and highway gas mileage (28). Major gripe: If you want a sporty car this is not it. On straight road it is great. BUT smooshy on curves (just like a Buick). Minor stuff: City MPG could be better. Buy used not new.

Review

When you turn your car on, does your car turn you on? Mine does! The only problem I had was the position the highlights were reflecting on the road, but the dealership adjusted. This car is wonderful. From the sleek exterior design, the plush interior to the horse power under the hood. My husband forced me to test drive a Sonata, but when we went into the dealership and I saw this Azera I knew it was something special. Like other comments I've read, it's hard to believe there aren't more on the road.


Best Features

Entire car from bumper to bumper.


Worst Features

Gas mileage, part of that is my fault!!

2006 Hyundai Azera SE 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I purchased this car in late 2006 & have been amazed at it's build quality & comfort. The driving position is perfect for a 6 footer. I use it daily for work in heavy Washington D.C. traffic & 54,000 miles have proven it's durability. It's a pleasure to drive.The Azera has features that others in it's class can't match.I get about 22 m.p.g. in the city, & 26-30 on the highway & this car is fast.


Best Features

Build quality, comfort, durability, perfect engine & transmission, size & handling.The dealership is excellent. Probably the best of any car that I've owned.


Worst Features

The lighting stands improvement. The battery quit after about one year. The a/c compressor was replaced all under warranty.

Review

Nobody thought I'd buy this car, including me, but I haven't regretted since. A lot of power for its curb weight. The other day, I had no problem keeping up with a Mazdaspeed 3 on the freeway going 90mph. Like some people say, you don't realize how fast you are going because the ride is very quiet and smooth. Of course, it also helps that Hyundai has such long warranties on it. Haven't had need to take it back to dealer yet though. Roomy interior and superb upholstery, though not leather, all the nice touches are there including the "fake" wood plastic finish. Large trunk. Exterior styling is ok, but not the best. But for a $23K car, it's not bad.


Best Features

Acceleration, sports car feel on the freeway (due to the high torque output), roomy interior and excellent upholstery for a non-luxury car, large trunk, comfortable seats both front and back, excellent performance and value to price ratios.


Worst Features

I can make suggestions, but it would add to the cost. It's fine as is.
