  • I finally got to test drive a 2.0T & the 3.8 back to back. The 2.0T is pretty impressive for what it is. If I had to compare the engine to something, I could point to the 3.0 V-6 in my wife's Audi A6. I was driving it with the AC on and har…
  • Okay...you want a Genesis, but financially it just doesn't look like the numbers will work for you. Don't fret, I feel your pain. Well...for those that want one, get the next best thing! KIA - Azera Genesis Grille
  • I'm sure the weight of my sound system does cut into my fuel economy a lil bit, but not enough to make a significant difference. Overall...it's like an added 100 lbs.
  • I'm really liking the idea of this nifty accessory... Azera Folding Cargo Organizer
  • Hyundai Assessory Store - Azera Cargo Tray
  • That was one area I failed to inspect. I assumed that since mine had the covering, that they would still have it. Sorry! :blush:
  • Bud...to be honest, both would be great to have. I've got the traditional cargo mat in my trunk now, but there have been times that I've carried some things that the cargo tray would have been really nice to have to facilitate clean up.
  • 1. If I buy a new 2009 Azera, how many keys will I get from the dealer? 2. If I get the dealer to throw in some extra keys with the sale, how many keys can you get in total and still have all of them work on starting the car? (Hopefully I could g…
  • Limited w/no options??? It'll definitely hurt you should you decide you want to trade the car in, however...if you are planning on keeping the car till the wheels fall off, maybe you could try to get him to throw in the extended warranty (taking th…
  • I posted on this matter before (just not sure which forum it was in). If you go to Car Domain and do a search of Azeras...there's a guy on there with a blue Azera that lowered his using the coilover set up. There's also a couple of other Azeras on…
  • Bud, I'm not one that has a GPS hooked up in my car, I've only upgraded the sound system, however...you could affix the suction cup base in the lower corner on the driver's side and you could tuck the wire down along the A-Pillar, then slip it in al…
  • Budh...the fuse box is located on the side of the dash. If you open the driver side front door, there's a panel on the side of the dash. You'll see an opening that you can slide a couple fingers in and pull the panel off. Once you see the fuses, …
  • Does anybody know the problem of a bad GROUNDED WIRE on a new Azera? Haven't heard of this popping up, but it is true any type of failure can happen at any given time. Being told it's covered by warranty isn't a sales pitch...it's the truth. My '…
  • I currently own an '06 Azera w/Premium Package. After hearing all the complaints about the suspension issues from folks with later '06 models, '07's and '08's...I wanted to see if they corrected the problems with the '09. Now I can't speak in term…
  • I don't know Tonycd, with the sheet metal still being the same going into the 4th model year, it could be coming a little sooner. It would fit with the Hyundai trend. The Sonata was changed in 02, then in '06 and then the '09. With the Sonata loo…
  • alymac...if you look on www.Cardomain.com, you'll see a few of them on there that have dropped the suspension. It really looks nice too. opirusXG's CarDomain Page ELNINORUDO's CarDomain Page martianiv's CarDomain Page
  • I got to peek inside a '09 Azera this past Friday. Can't say I'm wild about the chrome accents, I like them better as silver, but....I do like the way they finally matched the lighting with the climate control and radio with the rest of the gauges.
  • After talking with a couple of dealers, they really don't like selling the Azera with the 3.3 in it. I mean...what they ask for in price, one could get a fully loaded Sonata, get more options, same engine and be better off in terms of resale value …
  • I sure would love to see pics of this...the pics they have of the '09 on Edmunds look like my '06 (sans the turn signals on the mirrors). Sounds like they've made some very nice changes.
  • Pod...I think you'll be more than happy with the Azera. If you opt to wait on the '11 Sonata, you won't be able to get a V-6 engine (if that's a concern for you). I'm sure you'll be able to catch a sweet deal on an '09 or possibly a '10 model with…
  • Pod...welcome to the forum. The Azera is a nice car that has had a few issues. There are some issues shared by many and a few that are not. However, as Hyundai puts it on their website...the Azera is their best kept secret. Don't know why they w…
  • All due respect, pricing the Equus at $75k or even close would price them out of the market they are hoping to take a bite out of. The Lexus LS460, which the Equus is taking direct aim at, starts out around the low-mid $60K's. My thinking is with …
  • Wow...I wasn't aware that the Sonata wouldn't be offering a V-6 any more. That's pretty crazy considering it's the direct competition against the Camry & Accord. I guess that's their way of justifying keeping the Azera (which I'm not mad about…
  • SWEET!!! Maybe I was wrong about them not continuing the Azera in 2011!!!
  • Here's another link you can try as well... Brandsport: Touch Up Paint
  • You know...IF that were the case, I would agree completely, but in my area...regular gas is $1.76/gal. and diesel is $2.49/gal. So, yes...there would be some savings, but it would take a little longer to recoup the price difference. Using the dies…
  • How much more? I would think the price would be offset with the savings in fuel. Look at the Jetta TDI...when compared to the regular gas burning 2.0 T's...price increase of maybe $1500-2500 and you jump at least 10 mpg better. Depending on the a…
  • Actually Cobrazera...I'm wondering with Hyundai bring a diesel engine option to the Veracruz, will a diesel engine trickle down to the sedans. It would seem the move to make with Volkswagen doing it as well as BMW releasing diesel sedans now as wel…
  • Kia VG to be based on next generation Hyundai Azera There's a blurb in the article, "According to a leaked document outlining Kia’s future product plans, the new sedan is set to make its world debut in August next year with sales expected …
  • They could use their own 6-speed trannies to cut costs a lil bit, but if they are having success with the ZF & Aisin trannies...I would think they would stick with them and use the Hyundai made 6-speeds in the likes of the Azera & Veracruz (…
  • I've replaced many a stock head unit in my young 38 years and I haven't come across any that offered any sort of interfaces without having to purchase some aftermarket piece to make it happen. As cool as it would be for an automaker to provide an o…
  • Thank you Pat! My apologies if anyone's fragile sensibilities were ruffled. I guess I was just a lil over zealous and wanted to share with everyone. If you would be so kind as to go back and delete the extraneous postings and leave the one in the…
  • Did you ever stop to think that maybe, just maybe not everyone subcribes to all the forum postings like you do??? Someone with a 2008 Azera, may just subscribe to the posts that pertain only to the 2008's. I just wanted to make sure everyone got a…
  • If you buy air filters retail, they run between $10-18. The K&N filter for the Azera was listed at around $60. You do the math.
  • Now you're the first person I've ever hear say that. Well, it really isn't a waste of money because even if the FE doesn't improve, after you've washed the filter out and put it back in 5 or 6 times, it's paid for itself in that you're not buying a…
  • Okay...I see what you're saying, but to a degree, it still boils down to more a A filter can only be but so efficient as it will block some air flow. By removing this blockage with something that's less restrictive, the air enters at a more rapid …
  • Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...how can a turbo or supercharger induce more air than is already available? It just forces the air into the engine at a faster rate, right? In which case, a less restrictive filter would allow the air to pass through at a hi…
  • I spoke with a Hyundai service manager who said he put a K&N filter in his wife's Azera and the fuel economy improved. I am planning on doing the same thing myself.
  • I for one appreciate the different points of view posted. Initially, I was gung ho about possibly getting a K&N filter, but I don't live in a mountainous region where elevation would be a problem for me. I have seen a K&N filter and I can …
  • I never said you must take the assembly out to replace the bulbs, I just said that it makes the process so much easier. Working the wire around the retaining clip as you're trying to put the bulb in is tricky with one finger. Congrats on your HID …
