Hyundai Azera Problems

Engine -- Verified

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.

Drive Train -- Verified

Prior to replacing the automatic transmission fluid (to improve shift quality), make sure that the transmission fluid level is correct. Also, make sure the computer that controls the transmission has the most up-to-date adaptive programming information. When servicing these transmissions be sure to use fluid approved by Hyundai.

Problems with the accelerator pedal position switch may cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate; an improved switch is available to fix this problem.

Body, Interior & Misc., June 25, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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 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.

Hyundai Azera Reviews

The front struts have been replaced. All tires have been replaced. I still hear a rattling noise underneath the car. Sounds like coming from the rear shocks. Also receive noise at start up probably timing chain tensioner. Car is really a disappointment.

5 stars all

On September 9, 2013, I spoke with Cory (Jenkins Hyundai Service Manager), he indicated that new cars have more electronics and computers as a result this car will drain the battery if it is not started or driven more frequently than two weeks. According to him there is no abnormal drain on the cars electronic system. He recommends that I take the car out for a Sunday drive weekly, of at least 30 minutes or more. My experience with other cars (2005 Cadillac STS and 2008 Cadillac DTS), has been that I leave them at an Airport or Seaport parking for as much as a month and they have started without a problem.

We are very pleased with the car overall, but it is our second car and it often sits in the garage for a week or more. When we attempt to start it, it will not start. The dealer checked it and the battery and they claim the battery and car check out without a problem.

Have had engine knock problem for the past 2 years. Can not get it fixed or get information from dealer if this is a common problem. Have found several sites thst say the tensioner may be the problem. Has TSB but dealer will not check.
