On Saturday morning, the passenger-side mirror on our 2007 Hyundai Azera decided to take a more relaxed approach to its role in life. A week or two ago, an editor mentioned that the side mirror had come loose while the car was in her care; she told us that she'd remedied the situation by popping the mirror back into place. We huffed and puffed and slammed the door really hard a few times, but we weren't able to duplicate the problem.
However, the issue returned on Saturday. It seemed to have taken place overnight; I noticed it first thing in the morning. Maybe the mirror just wanted to take things easy over the weekend.
I was able to nudge the mirror back into place. It's power-adjustable, and that feature wasn't compromised. The issue will no doubt surface again, though; we'll have the dealership take a look during our next service visit.

Our Azera Limited recently visited Cormier Hyundai in Carson for its 15,000-mile prescribed maintenance.
After an hour in the waiting room the Azera was ready. We paid $57.44 for fresh oil, a new oil filter and new air filter. Cormier also performed a tire rotation at our request.

During my visit to the car wash today, I asked the guys if they could take a look at the Azera's stained driver seat. They went to work on it with their industrial-strength cleaner and got about half of the gunk off.
So the seat looks better than before -- but arguably it should still be pristine in a car with less than 15,000 miles.
Also, now the seat is super slippery and my jeans smell like the cleaner the car wash employees used. Great. We'll keep you updated as this exciting saga unfolds.
