11000 0 Exterior front-passenger door handle broke off when it was pulled while the door was still locked. 
12000 0 Trip to the dealer took care of two issues: only the driver's power window would go down. Don't know what was repaired, but everything works now. Second issue: The rear-passenger door wouldn't open from the inside everything works now. 
30000 0 Retractable sunshade raised itself halfway and refused to go down, and made a buzzing noise. Dealer put it out of the way for now -- an extensive procedure, apparently -- and has ordered parts to get it permanently fixed.

7000 0 Replaced crash pad. It was splitting where the air bag would pop out from. Passenger side seat belt traps person in the seat and won't let them add a little slack to allow movement to open the dash glove box or pick up anything off the floor. 
34300 0 The passenger side underbody panel front mounting position broke and the panel was scrapeing the road. The dealer removed the broken panel and ordered a replacement panel. Dealer replaced the underbody panel.

10000 0 The CEL came on several times, third and last time the worst. Caused the car to shake, the engine ran so roughly. The problem was a bad O2 sensor. After the Tech found what was setting the code, he cleared it. Said I could drive car until part came in. Installed new oxygen sensor. 
13000 0 Azera had bad shocks for the second time. Had to fight Hyundai at corp.level to get 2nd set of front shocks replaced. After being told that it was "normal and all Azeras do that." Finally factory rep okay replacement under "goodwill" What beloney! 
17000 0 Not repaired. Factory shocks failed again. Third time. The second set of factory replacememnts. Given up on Hyundai shocks and will wait for aftermarket replacements. KYB or Bilsteins hopefully. Factory Mando parts won't last for even 5K miles. Shameful 
25000 0 I don't take it to any dealers on advise of Attorney. It's presently being litagated under the California Song-Beverly lemon law. Hope to be shed of it soon. It simply cannot be fixed with factory parts, and there are no aftermarket shocks available. 
41000 0 Lemon law for shocks.
