In the summer of 2012, my wife drove her Azera to a shopping mall, turned the car off, went into the store and came out about 10 minutes later to find that the car had ignited into flames from the engine compartment. Unfortunately for others parked nearby, their cars were also totaled. It was never determined why the car lit up. I had called Hyundai and the local dealer. No investigation or compensation came about. The manufacturer called it an act of god and not covered under warranty. My insurance paid the claim, but not enough to replace the vehicle with a comparable Azera. To me it appeared to start around the cooling fan for radiator.
Update from Jan 16, 2019: Now over 5 years later, Hyundai is recalling many of their models for engine fires. Go figure.
