2006 Hyundai Azera Limited 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 5A)
Good daily driver that is also good highway traveler. SHIFTRONIC transmission make driving in mountains of Colorado and Utah a pleasure and prevents overheating brakes. Engine, transmission and mechanical perform well in 110+ degree desert heat. Paint has held up well in cloudless sunny skies of Arizona. The battery needed replacement after 2 years, the coolant tank cracked (but did not leak) and the dash top cover cracked, and all were replaced free under warranty by dealer. The seat, foot pedal and steering column adjustments combined with the integrated memory system easily accommodates out 2 drivers who have an 8 inch height difference. This Azera is 3 years old and has 30,000 miles
Great dealer for sales and service, initial quality, reliability, powerful engine for mountains and highways, SHIFTRONIC automatic transmission that shifts smoothly in standard mode, ride comfort, power foot pedals, Integrated memory system, heated leather front seats, lots of included features
Improve gas mileage, throttle response a little too aggressive and needs more pedal movement to improve gas mileage and alleviate jackrabbit starts, automatic door lock when car is shifted into drive, the orange trip computer readout doesn't match rest of instrument panel decor.
