Rack and pinion failed and had to be replaced.
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!
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
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.
This was an appointment with Regional Service Manager re: ongoing ride problems. 5th trip-on 3rd trip the struts were replaced per TSB with very little, if any, improvement in ride. SM says all Azeras ride like this. If so, it is a major manufacturing ...
New shocks on all 4 wheels at Hyundai's expense and offering. Ride was becoming increasingly bouncy and wallowing-a real concern at higher speeds. Afterwards we saw immediate improvement but the firmness was soon gone. The car was back to its old ways.
Mechanic noted play in rf ball joint during test drive. Repaired. Clunk in rear like two by fours hitting together when going over a deeper road indentation like a recessed sewer cover.
Clunking noise from the rear suspension when going over severe potholes. Problem loose dust boots on shocks. Dust boots secured and vehicle now quieter than when new. Dealer sent in a report to Hyundai Canada.
Rear sway bar bushings replaced to eliminate clunking noise.
Banging and popping from front suspension. Installed new struts and bushings Problems with steering, clanking from steering shaft and entire steering wheel/shaft loose.
Installation of new steering shaft.
Installed another new set of struts after replacements went bad. Excessive wallowing and float, and knocking noises.
Developed front strut noise, dealer replaced front struts according to TSB #07-50-007.
