I traded my Lexus GS430 for the 2012 Genesis with the premium package.
I am 100% satisfied with my decision.
Many asked me why I would part with my Lexus.
All I can say is you have to drive it. Dollar for Dollar it can't be beat!
Oh ya, I added the Genesis branded hood, trunk, and wheel emblems which really look great.
I asked the dealer to install them at cost as part of my deal.
333 horses for a v6 is more than plenty of power.
It moves deliberately, but it's not a race car.
I love almost everything about this vehicle.
It rides great, it has plenty of room (I'm 6'3"), well appointed, and fit n finish is top quality.
The trunk can hold at least two set of golf clubs, unlike my Lexus where I had to remove the driver to cram in one set.
I'm not overly impressed with the Lexicon sound system.
It sounds a bit tinny to me.
I've tweaked the equalizer with no real improvement.
I know it gets good reviews, so maybe that was the one thing where my Lexus beat the Genesis.
