Hit and Miss but still a great value

2007 Hyundai Azera Limited 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 5A)
Some love the suspension-some hate it. I'm one of the latter. The suspension was good for the first 3-5K then started to feel wore out. Hyundai replaced the shocks and it felt good for another 5K but now back to feeling wore out. Hyundai issued a TSB knowing that the shock were crap but the replacement shocks are still crap. The suspension is noisy and the car wallows and bounces over less than perfect pavement-makes for an annoying ride. Hyundai USA CEO was quoted as saying the Azera's suspension was designed with the Korean market in mind. They should have researched US driver's preferences before marketing in US. This car has a lot going for it but the suspension is not one of them IMHO.
Interior design and comfort, Infinity sound system, safety features, outside folding mirrors, trunk size, dignified exterior appearance and many more bang for the buck features.
The SUSPENSION!!! Fuel economy could be better. Transmission could be better (down shift is slow and too much lag in finding the right gear sometimes). The 3 Hyundai dealer's (service dept.) in my area need to be better educated about the Azera and need improvement in customer service.
