Review

Higher performance than looks would indicate. Gas mileage not its strong point but OK given engine performance

2011 Hyundai Azera Limited 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 6A)


Review

There is no reason for my 2011 Azera with 42,200 miles on it should have a #3 connecting rod bearing fail. I believe Hyundai in their ads wants people to believe that the early disasters that were called cars by Hyundai and sold in the US in the 1980 mistakes of the past and they build a quality product now and their 10 year warranty on their 3.8 L V6 was evidence Hyndai engines were quality prducts. WRONG! It is a fact that no late model car of any manufacturer sold in the US should experience connecting rod bearing failure at 42,200 miles! Modern oils and bearing materials allow properly designed and built engines to run over 100,000 miles with no engine bearing problems. I have been driving since 1954 and at no time since then have I experienced or known of anyone having engine bearing failures - that is until I bought my 2011 Azera in January, 2014. It was a like new used vehicle, with 30,000 miles on odometer, bought from a local Hyundai dealer, and was in great shape, under the remaining Hyundai warranty, and properly maintained using synthetic oil for the 12,200 miles I drove it. In December, 2017 I experienced the rod bearing failure and contacted Hyundai about a goodwill warranty coverage because engine bearing failures in modern cars just don't happen! But Hyundai turned me down! So be advised, Toyota, Honda, Mazda, Nissan, and Subaru may have shorter warranties but they also have engines that don't self destruct in 42,200 miles of use either. Save yourself grief and big bucks fixing Hyundai's mistakes by avoiding any and all Hyundai vehicles. You know Hyundai, - the Company I believe that sells cars with V6 engines so poorly designed and made that they self destruct around 42,200 miles. And I think they know what I say is the truth!

2011 Hyundai Azera Limited 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 6A)


Review

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


Worst Features

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

2011 Hyundai Azera Limited 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I had never heard of the Azera until a friend of mine with a Genesis let me drive it. I was impressed and went to the dealer to check them out, but the one thing I didn't like was RWD--thus a test drive of the Azera. It was the last of seven cars I test-drove and turned out to be just what I wanted & thousands of dollars less than I was willing to pay. All the cars I drove were either German or Japanese. My second choice was the Avalon, but didn't think it met my needs like the Azera. My Azera now has over 1000 miles on it & am truly amazed at the quality for the price. It's not often the least expensive is my favorite. It is a far superior car to the Buick I used to drive.


Best Features

Front wheel drive, very quiet, smooth, lots of interior room (I'm 6'2" and 215), great warranty, folding mirrors and quick/responsive engine.


Worst Features

Would like a push button starter.

Review

My last cars before my azeras were Jaguar & Lexus. I just traded my 2009 azera limited for 2011 limited. I liked the 2009 so much that I wanted another. The 2011 is even smoother & faster with the 6 speed transmission. The trade in value was excellent & I am very happy. This is more of an automobile than the jag & Lexus could hope to be, and for thousands less. I test drove the sonata & Genesis. The sonata was too small & the Genesis is not as smooth & comfortable as the azera. The azera is just the finest car I have ever owned.


Best Features

Electric folding mirrors for the garage. Lots of power & very quiet engine. You have to look at tach sometimes to know if engine is even running.


Worst Features

Improve lighting inside trunk. All cars need this. Relocate speaker from inside top of trunk. It blocks luggage & reduces space.
