2007 Hyundai Azera Limited: Sticky Thump

July 27, 2007

Last night I noticed that the Azera's accelerator was starting to feel a bit sticky. When I drove it last (possibly May), I recall it being nothing but smooth and happy to dig into those 263 horses. On the stickymeter, it's not that bad, but anything that starts to remotely feel like the crap can Chevy Cavalier I had to drive in driver's ed makes me perk up with concern.

I also noticed a rattle emanating from the rear parcel shelf.

It doesn't happen a lot and seems to be caused by the odd deep note from the subwoofer embedded in the parcel shelf. Mind you, I guess if I was listening to Xzibit rather than talk radio it would've been slightly more problematic. I'll check back when I can find some X to the Z to cruise in the A to the Z with.
