Acceleration hesitation and surges
By geonar on
2011 Hyundai Azera Limited 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 6A)
Driven 1000 miles, to dealer twice, this time 11-days and counting for this hesitation, then surge acceleration problem, when tuning and/or traveling in stop and go traffic, have to drive 1 foot on brake to control surge acceleration.
Hyundai Corp Engrs working with Dealers Techs to resolve.
TPMS indicator light has been on since new still an issue.
Parts were obtained from Korea is concerning.
Consider this acceleration problem major safety issue.
Suggest if test-driving an Azera Limited; satisfy yourself of the drivability while maneuvering when slightly accelerating at speeds below about 15MPH.
Own a Santa Fe Limited with all options, ranks one of the best cars I ever owned, this is
Make sure that when changing a transmission from 5-speeds to 6-speeds that dealers techs have all error codes and have parts readily available in USA
AFTER TRADING IN MY 2009 AZERA ON A 2011 AZERA I STARTED TO HAVE AN ACCELERATION PROBLEM.
THE VEHICLE WOULD START OUT FROM A STOP THEN DROP BACK TO IDLE SPEED & THE CAR ALMOST STOP IN TRAFFIC----THEN SURGE AHEAD VIOLENTLY.
AFTER MANY TRIPS TO THE DEALER & THEM NOT BEING ABLE TO DUPLICATE THE CONDITION, I HAD TO DO SOMETHING. THEY COULD NOT FIX THE CAR.
I TRADED IT IN 3 WEEKS AGO ON ANOTHER 2011 AZERA & GUESS WHAT?
600 MILES ON THE CAR & I AM STUCK WITH IT.
I AM AFRAID TO EVEN DRIVE IT BACK TO THE DEALER.
IT IS IN THE GARAGE & I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO NEXT.
