    2010 Hyundai Genesis

    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 Sonata

    This 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.

    2009 Hyundai Genesis

    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.

    2009 Hyundai Genesis

    Pros: Interior

    Cons: Rough ride on non-smooth surfaces

    Great 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.

    2010 Hyundai Genesis

    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.

    2009 Hyundai Genesis

    Great Performance Car

    Pros: The electronics in the compartment

    Cons: The suspension

    Great 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.

    2010 Hyundai Genesis - 3.8

    Pros: Drivetrain

    Cons: Contemporary but anonymous front end

    Advice: Shop around, but don't overlook the Genesis

    Former 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!

    2009 Hyundai Genesis - 4.6

    Pros: Smooth flow of power

    Cons: Dunlop Tires to much road feel and balance problems

    Advice: read all the customer reviews on WWW

    After 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.
