"Arm rest could be slightly wider."

Anonymous, CT (2007 Hyundai Azera)

"Seats are very good and ride is nice. However, it is the nosiest car I have ever had in my 70+ years on this planet. Since the early 80's I have bought and usedGoodyear tires as replacements for my cars and trucks. I was privileged to drive company cars for 30+ years and have experienced many brands of tires. I replaced the tires on my Azera at 40K. I replaced them with the same Goodyear type and name as are on my 2005 Buick LaSabre. Driving the same roads the Azera is very noisy compared to my Buick. Road and tire noise is my biggest complaint with my Azera."

Mike L., AZ (2007 Hyundai Azera)

"Ride is too harsh."

Anonymous, NJ (2007 Hyundai Azera)

"Love the heated seats. Lots of leg room to stretch and relax on long trips. It is a great highway cruiser. My wife is in love with the car and has not interest in replacing it, She would rather drive than ride. which is fine by me."

Fred A., AZ (2007 Hyundai Azera)

"Very comfortable driving experience."

Michael P., TX (2007 Hyundai Azera)

"Very comfortable seats and quiet ride. All controls are easy to understand and use. Handling and response are sure and comfortable. The quality of the materials used inside and near luxury level and look and feel very nice."
