Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

2006 Hyundai Azera Owner Comments

problem #7

Sep 112013

Azera 6-cyl

  • 87,000 miles


Driving on I70. Driver power seat moved backward. Was able to stop motion and return seat to previous position using switch. The seat had been moving back and the seatback had been titling forward when car was parked and no ignition on. Seat has since been moving back while driving more often and the seat back now tilts forward while driving. Had to stop car since switch would not override the actions. Had this checked after first incident at dealer. Stated they couldn't duplicate problem but would probably require complete replacement of drivers seat at about $2000. Have also had problem with passenger side airbags and seatbelt. Buckles have been replaced under a recall on both front seats but didn't fix the airbag problem. This is a major safety issue and a recall should be issued before someone gets killed. Think about GM key problem.

Driver's seat moves on it's own. Backwards at first. Now it tilts forward to to the steering wheel. Very dangerous. A real hazard.

The contact owns a 2006 Hyundai Azera. The contact stated that while driving at various speeds, the driver's seat began to independently move forward until the contact was pinned against the steering wheel. The failure recurred numerous times. The dealer was notified of the issue and advised the contact that they could replace the seat but they could not guarantee that the failure would not recur. The manufacturer was notified but offered no assistance. The vehicle was not repaired. The VIN was unavailable. The failure mileage was 70,000 and the current mileage was 87,000.

While driving or parked the driver side seat back moves forward pushing the drive toward the steering wheel. First started Dec.2009 and was random. To it to the dealer and they stated they replaced drivers power seat switch. At this date it is happening so often it's unsafe to drive. I will schedule a visit to the dealer.

While driving our 2006 Hyundai Azera on route 81 South the drivers seat started moving forward on it's own. I could not stop it. The seat pinned me against the steering wheel.also the back of the seat also move forward and essentially pinned me against the steering wheel. I could not get the seat to go back for about a minute and a half. I got the seat to reset and it did the same thing a couple minutes later. This is very dangerous and only the fact that I am a very experienced driver avoided a catastrophic high speed accident. Fuccillo Hyundai of syracuse replaced the switch and charged us $ $202.56 I contacted Hyundai corporate and reported what had happened and requested reimbursement they refused saying the car had 109000 miles on it; I believe that this is a latent safety defect and this should be fixed at no need to remember that I could not stop the seat from moving no matter how many times I tried to activate switch. The only way I could stop the seat from pinning me against the steering wheel was to remove the fuse.

Several weeks ago the drivers side power seat back in my 2006 Hyundai Azera would incline fully forward without warning pinning me to the steering wheel. The seat bottom could be moved back by manually operating the bottom switch to move the entire seat assembly back. After the dealer replaced the incline motor and 2 different seat switches, the entire seat now moves without warning to a full extended position. The entire seat moves to the fully extended position overnight while parked in the garage. The movement is unpredictable and is considered a safety issue.
