2009 Hyundai Genesis 4.6 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Transmission still clunks and jerks. No cure available. Hyundai buy back plan worthless. Dealer has been very very cooperative. Sunlight blocks out nav screen and back up camera. Both front seats need more thigh support. No light under hood. Bad blind area when drivers seat is all the way back. Drives like a truck rides like a brick. Fist year deprecation more than 35%.


Best Features

Push button starting. Performance. Gas mileage. Rear window screen. Nav system. Soft feel and effective brakes.


Worst Features

Cannot raise wiper arms to remove ice or snow. Dunlop tires have no traction on very cold snow days. You can not modulate power to the rear wheels this caused me to spin out. Dunlop tires have shallow tread and to much road feel. Window washers only spray lower windshield. Can not be adjusted.

Review

We have had the car just over one year. This past week while driving, the entire car shut down. The dealer towed the car and come to find out the rear engine seal failed; they still don't have a clue as to why. They are putting a brand new engine in it at no cost to me so their service has been A+. They are sending the old engine back to the company to investigate. Their engineers and mechanics could not find a reason for the failure, that is why the old engine is being returned to their factory to try and find out why. They gave me excellent service but my problem is; I no longer trust the car. As soon as I get it back I'm selling it. If it happened once it could happen again!!!

Review

I have leased this care now for 1 year, and I have 2 years to go. The ride is just horrible. It actually makes you sea sick on the roads. The stero is great, the interior looks great. Seats are comfortable, but you buy a car to drive, and it is the worst riding car I have ever had. I can hardly wait to get rid of it. If I wouldn't take a big loss, i'd get rid of it this afternoon.


Best Features

Interior, stereo system is awesome.


Worst Features

IMPROVE THE RIDE. Its Horrible

Review

The car is OK except for the transmission. This car has a six speed transmission and it searches and searches ans still finds the wring gear. When going up a hill and you need to accelerate a little it will jump two gears instead of one. The transmission will also not 'release' when you slow to stop. I can't coast in it. It is really an aggravating car to drive. Other than that it is a nice car or in other words, 'other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how did you enjoy the play?' This inability to find the correct gear also has an affect on gas mileage.


Best Features

Outstanding appearance both inside and out.


Worst Features

Better shifting sequence by transmission.
