2006 Hyundai Azera Owner Comments

problem #5

May 172014

Azera 6-cyl

  • 148,000 miles


On May 17, 2014 at approximately 1 pm in the afternoon, I was driving on the freeway when I heard a loud "thud" and my steering wheel jerked slightly while traveling at 65 mph. The sound concerned me so I pulled over and looked at my braking assembly on the driver's side front wheel. I didn't see a loose caliper or anything out of the ordinary so I "limped" to where I was going. When I arrived at a family members house, I removed the front driver's side wheel and was shocked at what I saw. The upper control arm had snapped in two at the ball joint. Had I realized that at the time, I certainly would have had my car towed since this was a safety issue. I ordered a new control arm and installed it over a period of several days. I kept the broken control arm and brought it to my local dealership to show them what had happened and to inquire about any recalls Hyundai may have on their control arms (May 27th). I spoke to one of the managers, kelly [xxx] at South bay Hyundai, and he said no recalls had been issued and gave me the customer service hotline number. I called the customer service center and spoke to [xxx] on May 27, 2014 at approximately 11:45am. He also confirmed there were no recalls and offered to record the situation under case number 6626102 (I believe the conversation was recorded and started around 11:38am if used for reference). I explained to him the control arm should never have failed. After several emails to Hyundai Consumer Affairs, they wanted nothing to do with the situation since the car was out of warranty. I only received canned statements from them. As an engineer myself, I believe this is a part that should easily last the lifetime of the vehicle. I believe this is a safety issue and could possibly affect others driving an Azera or sonata. Please contact me for photos, documentation, and/or the failed control arm itself. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Thumping loose noise coming from front suspension mainly at speeds less than 40 miles per hour. Officially Hyundai says this is not a problem but my sources tell me that the Hyundai engineers are well aware of the problem, know how to remedy problem but wants to keep it all hush hush because the fix is to expensive meanwhile owners simply have to suffer through this annoyance every day in fear that eventually something is going to break and possible cause an accident, can you please help us with this daily noise and safety issue. I do not wish to bring harm to my self, my family or any one else as a result of this problem. Thanking you in advance for your speedy attention to this critical matter.
