2009 Hyundai Genesis Long-Term Road Test


2009 Hyundai Genesis: Great Weekend and Idiot Lights

June 01, 2009

I had a great weekend in our long-term Hyundai Genesis. I really could own this thing. On Saturday it hauled around the entire Oldham clan, kids and all, in total comfort and on Sunday it took the wife and I to the theatre in style.

But I did find a couple of things to complain about just so you don't think I've begun moonlighting for Hyundai's marketing department.

1) The driver's seat bottom is a wee bit too short for me. A half inch to an an inch more length would be appreciated, but the seat is still comfortable as it is.

2) That annoying green light in the above photo stupidly appears on the instrument panel when you turn on the headlights. It stays on and is constantly in my peripheral vision. Hey Hyundai, I know the lights are on because I just turned them on. I'm dum, but not that dum.

3) The rear windows are not auto up or down. Just the fronts.

Oh, almost forgot to mention. As you can see in the photo our Genesis has blasted past the 7500 miles mark, which means it is due for its first scheduled maintenance. We'll hopefully get it to the dealer this week.
