Model Highlights

Two different Hyundai Azera models, GLS and Limited, are offered for 2009. The GLS starts at $24,970. The Limited starts at $28,920. Both come with a very generous amount of equipment compared to sedans in their price range. Fog lamps, LED taillights, speed-sensitive wipers, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and dual-zone climate control are all standard.

The GLS features a 3.3L, 234-horsepower, V6 engine, while the Limited steps up to a 263-horsepower, 3.8L DOHC V6. Both engines have continuously variable valve timing and a variable intake system to help increase throttle response without reducing fuel economy. A 5-speed automatic transmission with Shiftronic manual control is the only transmission available. A 4-wheel double-wishbone suspension with a multi-link setup in back, helps bring a smooth, quiet ride and responsive handling. The suspension and steering has been tuned for flatter handling and better compliancy over rough roads.

The base GLS seems upscale with handsome styling cues that include body-color sills and rocker panels, big 17-inch alloy wheels and LED tail lamps and brake lights. Other equipment includes a HomeLink garage-door opener, power front seats and automatic headlamps. An optional Premium Package adds leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a sunroof to the GLS.

The top-of-the-line Limited gets leather upholstery, heated front seats, a power rear sunshade, side-mirror turn signals, a power sunroof and an upgraded, 315-watt, ten-speaker sound system with XM satellite radio and MP3 compatibility and a 6-disc CD changer.

Many of the safety features offered in more expensive vehicles are included on the Azera, including electronic stability control, safety pretensioners, anti-lock brakes, 8 air bags and active front head restraints.

An LG navigation system, with touch-screen functions and points of interest, is now available on the Limited, and comes paired with an upgraded 12-speaker, 11-channel, 605-watt Infinity Logic 7 sound system. The Ultimate Package brings this, plus a power sunroof, power-adjustable pedals, woodgrain trim, rain-sensing wipers, and memory settings.

As other Hyundai models, the Azera is covered by a 5-year/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, 10 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain, and 5 years of roadside assistance.


Model News

For 2009, the luxurious Hyundai Azera increased its steering weight and has a new grille with more chrome.


Value Writeup

The 2009 Azera competes in the full-size sedan category with the likes of the Toyota Avalon and Nissan Maxima. With base prices starting at $24,970, it's a genuine value, with luxury features that rival those in vehicles costing significantly more. With especially roomy rear seating and a smooth, comfortable ride, it's an ideal vehicle for family duty or road trips.


Pros

Affordable price; smooth ride; spacious interior and trunk; extensive warranty.

Summary
Hyundai Motor Company (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2006-2009 Accent, model year 2007-2011 Azera, Sonata and Sante Fe,2006-2011 Tucson, 2009-2011 Elantra Touring, 2007-2010 Elantra, 2008-2011 Veracruz, 2009-2011 Genesis, 2010-2011 Genesis Coupe, 2007-2008 Entourage, and 2006-2008 Tiburon vehicles. Originally, in April 2013, Hyundai recalled 1,059,824 model year 2007-2009 Accent and Tucson, model year 2007-2010 Elantra, model year 2007-2011 Santa Fe, model year 2008-2009 Veracruz, model year 2010-2011 Genesis Coupe, and model year 2011 Sonata vehicles. In September 2013, Hyundai informed the agency that it was adding more vehicles to this campaign, representing an additional 652,512 units. The total number of vehicles being recalled is now 1,712,336. In the affected vehicles, the stop lamp switch may malfunction. A malfunctioning stop lamp switch may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause an inability to deactivate the crui...

Consequence
Failure to illuminate the stop lamps during braking or inability to disengage the cruise control could increase the risk of a crash. Additionally, when the ignition is in the 'ON' position, the transmission shifter may be able to be moved out of Park without first applying the brake. This may lead to unintentional movement of the car which may increase the risk of a crash.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the stop lamp switch, free of charge. The safety recall began on April 22, 2013. Owners may contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai's recall campaign number is 110.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
Hyundai is recalling certain model year 2006-2010 Sonata vehicles manufactured March 1, 2005, through January 21, 2010; and model year 2006-2011 Azera vehicles manufactured September 27, 2005, through November 22, 2010 originally sold in, or currently registered in, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia. Road salt and water can enter portions of the rear crossmember, leading to corrosion of the crossmember steel. This may lead to detachment of one of the rear control arms.

Consequence
Control arm separation may suddenly change the rear wheel alignment, affecting the handling of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will repair or replace the crossmember assembly. The recall is expected to begin by the end of September 2013. Owners may contact Hyundai Custom Care Center at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai's recall number is 113.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
