Hyundai Genesis -- My Favorite Car Ever
Pros: Power Tilt & Telescopic Steering Wheel
Cons: 4-way (only) passenger seatI have owned our 2009 Hyundai Genesis for a bit over 2 years, since purchasing the first one sold in DeKalb County, IL in early July 2008. We have the V6 with the Premium package. To date, it has 30,150 miles and has been 100% trouble-free. The average fuel mileage to date is 24.6 mpg; with a range of 18.1 to 31.2 per fill-up since purchase. It is by far the most comfortable, best handling, and most spacious car I've owned since my 1975 Pontiac Grand Safari station wagon. Passengers in the rear seat frequently comment on how comfortable both the seats and the ride are; many saying that the rear seat of my car is more comfortable than the front of theirs. Performance is outstanding. My wife refers to the car as the 'red rocket'. During a recent vacation, it quietly cruised the 4-lane highways of central TX at an easy 80 - 85 mph. We averaged 29.8 mpg for the entire trip, including considerable local driving along the Texas gulf coast. Having ridden & driven Mercedes, Lexuses, BMWs, and Infinitis, I can honestly say that to get an equal driving experience with those brands requires at least an additional $15 - $20 thousand investment. The Genesis is by far the nicest vehicle I have ever owned.
damn good car

Tops For The Money!
Pros: The solid construction
Cons: We did't buy two of them.This car has been such a pleasure. It exceeds in every aspect. We are very pleased to say the least.
Cons: Rough ride on non-smooth surfacesGreat on smooth surfaces, very rough on rough surfaces. Little too much road noice. Styling very good (leave the 'H' off the back). Inside extremely nice. Very good car except for the rough ride on bumpy roads.
Great Performance Car
Pros: The electronics in the compartment
Cons: The suspensionGreat performance for the price (V8) Suspension is not even close to my 96 Mark VIII air ride with stability control. When going into corners to fast you need to pay attention their is no compensation like in the Mark VII. Really my only compliant.
Pros: Smooth flow of power
Cons: Dunlop Tires to much road feel and balance problems
Advice: read all the customer reviews on WWWAfter 1500 miles the transmission started having abnormal metallic slapping and clunking noises.The dealer and the factory tech do not know whats wrong.They road tested a new car and told me this is normal for rear drive cars.No other opinions allowed.After four return visits I found out what they already knew and where not truthful about.There are no parts or adjustments for this problem.HYUNDAI factory customer service means absolutely nothing even when you do every thing they ask.THIS has been a BIG MISTAKE.This was to be my retirement car.Trading after just two months I would loose$8000.HYUNDAI has made me and my GENSIS AN ORPHAN.
