2010 Hyundai Genesis 4.6 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 6A)


Review

After owning 4 LS series Lexus's I decided on a change due to the Lexus lackluster styling and high price. Toyota/Lexus was having all the recall problems at the time and upon reading the various automotive reviews I took a Genesis for a test drive. What a pleasant surprise. After 3000 miles I can say that the car handles beautifully in all driving conditions, has excellent acceleration and a virtually sound proof cabin. I would highly recommend this car to anyone interested in a high quality luxury sedan like ride at a very affordable price.


Favorite Features

Solid driving experience. Nicely designed.


Suggested Improvements

Driver's seat could be a little more comfortable, similar to the higher priced luxury sedans. Passenger seat should be fully powered so it can be raised or lowered.

2010 Hyundai Genesis 4.6 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 6A)


Review

After researching this car for more than six months, I purchased the v/8 with the tech package in may of 2010. The 4.6 liter engine rocks. It's smooth and powerful. The nav system is first rate. It does however take me the long way around sometimes. The radio and sound system is middle of the road but acceptable. Fit and finish is as good as I have seen on much more expensive cars. Ride and handling is great. Fuel efficiency is not what I expected. The car is rated at 25 mile per gallon highway. After three long trips the best mine has done is 23. That strictly highway and staying south of 75 miles per hour. Overall rating 8.


Favorite Features

The tech package , including smart cruse control. The icy blue interior lighting is the best interior lighting i have ever seen. I love it.it's soft while at the same time illuminating. Man oh man. Interior seating is very comfortable on long trips and never harsh.


Suggested Improvements

The trip computer resets the miles per gallon automatically when i refill the gas tank, without any input from the operator. This would have been a sale killer had i known it before buying. The elapsed time also resets automatically,annoying but not as much as the mpg.

2010 Hyundai Genesis 4.6 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 6A)


Review

This has to be the worst vehicle I've owned. I am a long time Hyundai lover, but what happened here? Not only does the momma vehicle not come close to what I've gotten used to by driving a few years old luxury car for a much lower price range than they're asking for this, but I've had to deal with a ridiculously bad Lithia Hyundai service department. My advice- save some money and buy a Subaru with every option available. Or spend the same amount on a Volvo. The performance on these cars is amazing! This car may be pretty and loaded; but you're still buying a Hyundai.


Suggested Improvements

Hyundai is just bad. Shop around- I'm sure you'll find something amazingly better!

2010 Hyundai Genesis 3.8 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I have owned my tan 3.8 Genesis Sedan for 8 months now and over 9000 miles in every kind of road condition. I am extremely pleased I bought this car. The ride is extremely smooth, quiet and comfortable. The V6 is very responsive and has more than enough power for the majority of drivers. The interior layout accommodates the drivers needs well, and the sound system is terrific. Reliability so far has been outstanding with not a single problem. And even better - my wife loves the car! All together an excellent value and great choice for those entering the luxury car market.


Favorite Features

Ride comfort, engine responsiveness, quiet interior, interior and exterior looks.


Suggested Improvements

Leather seats are very good but could be slightly firmer, mood lighting on dash and lighted door openers on rear view mirror.

2010 Hyundai Genesis 4.6 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 6A)


Review

In a depressed economy, Genesis 4.6 is good compromise to upscale German/ Japanese sedan. It has Lexus leather,a quality sounding stereo,decent acceleration,a good warranty. However, it suffers most with aggressive handling. It severely understeers when aggressively cornering and fights the driver to straighten out rather than staying in the curve ala BMW. Automatic transmission is smooth but sport mode (pseudo manual) shifting is lethargic.There is glare over the seven inch display and no touch mode operation. Better bluetooth than my BMW M5.Cooled seat setting (driver only) defaults off each time car is turned off. Stereo spontaneously switches to IPOD mode (same song) when car starts up cold.


Favorite Features

It uses regular unleaded gas!! It looks European especially if one gets the Bently emblems (about $119). It has nice back seat that seats two full sized adults much more comfortably than MB E class or BMW 5 series. Stereo sounds great."Safety Cruise" mechanism is "just OK".Good Price for 380 HP. Quiet.


Suggested Improvements

Handling must be improved! It needs the twin clutch shifter from 2010 m3. Stereo must keep the driver' setting. Cd player reverts to factory setting each time you turn the car off and won't stay in random play mode. Difficult to command voice controls. Ac doesn't cool like Lexus. Needs sport handling pkg
