Noise on Startup Due to Failing Timing Chain Tensioner

If you experience excessive engine noise on startup (after the engine has been turned off for several hours) that lasts for more than five or six seconds, turn off the engine and check that the engine oil level is correct. If the oil level is correct, the noise may be caused by the timing chain tensioner. Hyundai has an improved tensioner to correct this problem.

Hyundai Azera Recalls

Rust Concern with Rear Suspension

The rear suspension is the attaching point for the control arms and other rear suspension components. Road salt and water can accumulate in and around the rear crossmember causing it to rust. Excessive rust could cause one or both rear control arms to separate from the crossmember resulting in a sudden change in vehicle handling, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the rear crossmember and repair or replace it as necessary to correct this concern.

The Passenger Airbag May Not Deploy Correctly

The passenger airbag system on late model vehicles is designed to properly classify the type of passenger occupying the passenger seat. Possibilities include an adult, child, or child safety seat. These vehicles are being recalled because the passenger seat occupant may not be correctly classified by the airbag system. As a result the passenger airbag could deploy with a force inappropriate for the passenger seat occupant, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will recalibrate the airbag system to correct this concern.

The Passenger Side Airbag May not Deploy as Expected

The wiring harness for the right front seat belt tension sensor may become damaged after repeated use of the right front seat belt. If the wiring is damaged, the passenger front airbag will not deploy in the event of a crash. Dealers will repair the vehicles free of charge. The recall began February 22, 2010. The Hyundai recall number is 094.
