Hyundai's the Best - we own three of them!
Pros: The auto-mirror and memory seats/steering wheel
Cons: No usb port that year.2007 Azera .... 2010 Elantra Touring.... 2001 Elantra GT ....NO PROBLEMS WITH ANY OF THEM. That said, we also have the best dealer in the country and we almost always have the cars serviced at the dealer. They take care of everything!
Pros: body style and black exterior with chocolate brown leather seats
Cons: controls for radio on steering wheel are easily hit with hand while driving
Advice: Must especially see car and then test driveSmooth, roomy seating, comfortable ride...easy U-turns (small radius)...heated seats are especially soothing (because I have a lower back problem), beautiful style car, excellent safety features
Pros: All over
Cons: Road noise
Advice: Buy it!!I purchased a 2008 Azera Limited with a little over 11,000 miles. It must be the best kept secret in cars today! What a car for the money. Luxury, convience, style, and performance, with a combination of over 20 MPG. city & highway. A touch more road noise than I would like, but other than that, perfect! It is a 2008 Used AZERA, not 2010
Pros: Overall comfort
Advice: Do not be afraid to take the leapTraded in a 2005 Honda Accord. It was a great car and was concerned that the Azera would not live up to that standard. Well, I am pleased to report it has done that and more so far. The Azera is a real pleasure to drive. It is even better in severe crosswinds than my other car which is a Mustang GT. If it holds up long term like the Accord, I will more than likely buy another Azera when it is time. Extremely nice car for the money.
Pros: The smooth powerful engine.
Cons: The ashtray and the switches for the heated seat need to change places.
Advice: Everyone likes this vehicle.This car got me out of the crown victoria which I did not think was possible. It does not ride as smooth as a vic but a wonderful car to drive and ride.The interior room is comparable to a vic and the handling is much better.
Pros: Comfort, power, styling, auto climate control, braking, steering.
Cons: A little noisy over rough surfaces. Cup holder design. Mileage
Advice: Check it out!Just bought an '06 Limited used with 25K miles. Real nice car! Great acceleration and am getting average 19mpg combined hwy/local driving (onboard computer checks accurately against actual usage). Nice ride very quiet inside, though car sounds and feels noisier over multiple bumps than my wife's Accord does (will update after taking it to local dealer). Very spacious and comfortable for long drives. Handles real well and competently though it's no sports car. Fit and finish above average with lots of attentive touches, although the metal covering between the shifter and armrest is a bit cheesy. One rather odd thing is the design of the springs in the front cup holders; if your container has any kind of protruding edge on the bottom it'll catch when you lift it up, potentially spilling it's contents. FYI, if you have a Sirius Replay the head unit it fits real nicely inside the dashboard storage cubby but running the wires was a challenge. Also appreciate the cruise and radio controls on the steering wheel (love that mute paddle). The A/C is fast and cold. Overall, you get a lot for the money!
Pros: Snappy V6.
Cons: Time spent adjusting the driver seat. Sits a bit high.
Advice: Definitley try it. If you don't like Hyundai, you will like the Azera. If you do like Hyundai, you will love this car.Was very surprised. Forgot I was driving a Hyundai. Good sports car feel for a bigger car. Incredibly comfortable and well position drivers space (once you adjust it to your desire - which takes a while). Occasional thud in the year over bumps, but nothing major, just slightly noticable. Speed and power off the line were extremely impressive. Didn't understand the value of teh click shift - until I got on the road and was impressed how you can draw and hold power using it. The car looks great. Had 4 passengers in the car and all were comfortable (4 adults and a child). I found the cockpit intuitive and loaded with easy to access features. A lot of car for the money, great ride and solid warranty.
