Pros: easy-out feature where the driver's seat repositions itself on ignition/off
Cons: needs better carpeting
Advice: Run, do not walk, to your nearest Hyundai dealerI traded a 10 month old KIA Amanti for this car.... took a serious hit on depreciation (expected) but I had to have it! Looks, performance, handling, comfort, materials...all as good as anything up and including the ES330. Most importantly, I look good in it! Seriously, it seems that everyone in an Amanti is somewhere between 60 and death..... I felt like an old man driving it, as comfortable and quite as it was, but the 26% increase in HP and slightly better mileage as well as options like tilt & telescope wheel, adjustable pedals, rain sensing wipers and sunshade made the decision for me.
Pros: The ride
Cons: not having enough reliability data
Advice: do not buy an altima or a v6 camry without test driving azera.Absolutely smooth ride. Drive it to believe.
Pros: the preprogrammed seat and steering wheel adjustments
Cons: the sunroof seems like it doesn't close all the way
Advice: Buy the limited, it's worth the extra cash!We looked at the Chrysler 300 and the Kia Amanti. Neither car held a stick to the Azera. Amazing ride, handles like a dream and the interior appointments on the Limited are second to none. My mother has a Lexus and this car is nicer. We are so happy we bought this car. Our friends laughed when we told them we paid $30K for a Hyundai, yet when they saw the car, they gasped with amazement.
Pros: Engine responsiveness
Cons: No built-in XM receiver
Advice: Get the Limited!Awesome!! Best Hyundai yet!!
Pros: 3.8 liter engine
Cons: no xenon headlights
Advice: buy the Azera and save thousands over similar type carsVery quiet ride even at 80 mph! Awsome power and mileage from the 3.8 liter engine. Very high quality fit and finish on the interior and exterior. Great comfortable seats (leather) and super sound system (Infinity). The brakes and handling are also great with the 17' wheel package.
Pros: Available power yet good mileage
Cons: No-name tires on SE
Advice: Forget Hyundai's early models...their quality star has risen...Superior power, outstanding sound insulation, high quality fit and finish...what more can one say? Oh, yes...the warranty and price! I have nearly 2K miles on my Azera and am very pleased. Handles like a dream and is gives a super quiet ride yet has more than enough power to handle any situation. Had it up to 110 MPH and it was still climbing when I backed off. It was like riding on a cloud.
Cons: No running lights, No tinted windows, too many motorized 'goodies', center counsel is not up to the rest of the vehicle
Advice: Buy it.Has a 'big car' feel and response. Interior is excellent with a few minor exceptions. Overall the ride, handling and comfort are exceptional.
