2007 Hyundai Azera Limited 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 5A)
Purchased an Azera Limited late July after researching car over a year. Overall, the car is a terrific value. Have been averaging 25 MPG thus far (combination of 60% highway/40% stop and go city). Compared base limited model to Avalon XL. Avalon has reclining rear seat, affordable six disc CD changer, knee airbag and a couple of other features. Compared to Avalon XL, Azera limited offered heated leather seats, 17 inch alloys, standard traction and stability control, active head restraints, rear side airbags, fog lamps, heated wipers, homelink and compass, rear sunshade and air quality system to name a few things, all for a transaction price of $1,000 less than my best deal on Avalon
Acceleration is excellent and very smooth. Interior quality of materials is excellent and better than Lexus E350 and BMW 3 Series. Car is very comfortable and despite my height I have plenty of head and front (and rear legroom). Price is a value
Minor: Hood vibrates slightly over pronounced bumps (design issue); when volume of base stereo is set over a certain level, side view mirror vibrates slightly due to door speakers; ride is very good over large bumps but does reflect smaller imperfections in the road more than my Camry did
