Hyundai Azera Transmissions for Sale

The Hyundai Azera was introduced globally in 1986 as a full sized car. When it was re-introduced for the 4th generation it was brought out as a midsize mid-range luxury car it had a facelift and only one transmission available.

When the 4th generation was brought out in 2005, it was completely redesigned, both the chassis and body sheet metal were entirely new. Thus it became a midsized car. To make the cake even sweeter, more creature comforts and updated equipment were added. So it was appropriate to add a new and modern transmission at the time.

A manumatic transmission operates both as a conventional automatic transmission and manual transmission by allowing the driver to override the automatic mode by moving the shift lever into a second shift gate equipped with two positions, allowing for manual shifting or automatic shifting.

The transmission itself is of 5 or 6 forward gears plus another fuel saving feature that many people never realize it has because it is almost unnoticeable, it is called lockup torque converter.
