rear window defroster not working


Check obvious things first, fuses. Pull out your manual and look for locations. Second, there should be 2 wires going to the grid on the rear window defroster. Make certain they are still plugged in and the tabs have not been broken off, frequently happens at car washes when washing rear window. Third, take a close look at the grid of wire on the glass, looking for scratches. If scratched, you may be able to repair with a rear window defogger kit from your local auto store

Hyundai 2008 Azera Limited


There have been a lot of complaints lately of newer Hyundais having a "soft" clear coat. Hyundai has not recalled any of these vehicles yet, but I would strongly recommend taking it to the dealer and try to get it fixed under warranty. You have a 3 year 36,000 mile warranty specifically for the paint, unfortunately though, it is up to the dealer's discretion as to whether or not it is a "significant" problem. Never hurts to try though.
