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

Review

Impressed by the fit, finish, and options for the money. Didn't like the way the transmission shifted from day one. Under light throttle at 20-30 mph it can't seem to decide what gear it should be in. Also, torque converter lock up frequently won't release under load on a grade without first forcing a 5-4 downshift. More recently, I have been experiencing an intermittent but pronounced bucking/jerking under light load at 25-40 mph. It appears to be related to torque converter lock up problems. Engine is noisy (probably piston slap) until fully warmed up. Suspension transmits a lot of noise over rapid bumps such as rail road tracks or rough pavement. Tire noise is apparent on smooth roads.

Best Features

Infinity sound system. Retractable side view mirrors. Rear sun shade. 260+ horse power. Seat, steering wheel, and pedal position memory.

Worst Features

Front seats should be wider and more contoured. I.E. I weigh about 165 pounds and I feel that they lack adequate lateral (side to side) support. The seats in my Chrysler Concorde were much more comfortable.
