Excellent vehicle for the money.
Pros: The advanced cruise control system.
Cons: Operating the navigation system.My Genesis is the 4.6 V8 model which I've owned for about 7 months. Car is attractive, the quality is excellent, great interior space, and performance is good. Burning regular fuel I'm getting 20mpg in town and 25 on the road. Only complaint is the ride is a little harsher than I expected. To me it's not objectionable, but it is taunt over a rough road. Other than that, it's perfect my needs.
Greatest car ever!
Pros: Sound system, ride and handling, looks, seat comfort level and all the many amenities.
Cons: Better digial read-out diplay, like the new SonataThis is the best entry-level luxury car. I love this car and everytime I see it, am so glad I made the purchase. People often confuse my car with a MB or Lexus or even a Bently.
Pros: People saying I love it! What is it? Is that a Maserati?
Cons: No passenger seat height adjustment and no retractable side mirrors.4,000 miles and going strong. Had two people think it was a Bentley. Class, comfort and performance. Better than my wife's M/B. Hyundai needs to establish premium brand dealerships similar to Lexus, Acura and Infinity. Dealers selling Accents just doesn't do it.
Cons: Contemporary but anonymous front end
Advice: Shop around, but don't overlook the GenesisFormer owner of 4 Hondas and most recently an Acura TL, all fine vehicles, particularly the TL. However, after seeing and driving the Hyundai Genesis 3.8, I have become a believer! Material quality, fit are first class. The double overhead cam V-6 and 6 speed transmission provide extremely smooth and amble power. The comfortable but firm suspension provides sporty and balanced handling and ride. The audio system is simply the best I have heard in a motor vehicle. The Genesis has every convenience you can think of to make your trip enjoyable, except perhaps paddle shifters if you are looking for them. The vehicle has been averaging 22 mpg during the first two thousand miles in mostly mixed city driving. The only thing lacking is name recognition in this car class. But hey, who cares, enjoy the ride! Even that will come if they keep making automobiles like the Genesis!
