Equus - 2012 with a bigger engine

Just got my 2012 Equus yesterday. I was on a waiting list. I am a little skeptical of reviewers who got it weeks ago - how did they get the car when mine was one of the first off the boat from Korea? Anyways, the car, after 2 days is a lot of fun and seems to be a great value. It rides a little on the soft side, but with the new, more powerful engine, its acceleration is strong. Its exceedingly quiet, roomy, comfortable, and has a long list of features. The promised support seems to be very nice - time will tell if that turns out to be truth or hype. In short, if you are looking for a luxurious ride, don't need to impress anyone , and want to save big $$, this is worth a look.

Top of the line luxury at a fraction of the cost

I traded in my BMW 745i for the 2011 Hyundai Signature Series Equus, and apart from some irritating aspects of the i-pod and navigation systems, I'm delighted with the smooth, comfortable, QUIET! ride of this luxury ride. To boot, I get 27+ mpg on the highway and 20 mpg overall using regular gas, and the valet service, where the Hyundai dealer delivers a loaner Equus to my house when picking up mine for service is a major plus. The exterior will remind you of the top of the line Lexus, and the interior is similar to the S600 series Benz (the suede like head liner, analog clock in the dash, etc.). Compare sticker prices with the competition and you'll be astounded at the savings.

2014 Equus Engine Problem - Please Read and Help

2014 Equus has 32K miles; knocking noise started and immediately brought to dealership. Dealership was extremely rude and stated "you better get your repair receipts ready"! No prior notice, no oil or engine light ever came on. Didn't hear anything for 3 days, had to follow up with dealer who stated we need a new engine. Oil had leaked into the timing chain, sludge built up and the oil was overfull and the manufacture said they wouldn't warranty the engine. Called Hyundai direct and they stated they wouldn't warranty the engine. I have had no previous repairs, drive no more than 1K miles a month, treat the car like my own child and NEVER had a single light come on in the car. Went to BBB and I am going to arbitration with the Manufacturer and I NEED YOUR HELP. ANYONE WHO HAS HAD THE SAME ISSUE PLEASE HELP. MAYBE WE CAN BOTH GET THE MANUFACTURER TO WARRANTY OR REIMBURSE BOTH OF USE and stop this from happening to other customers.

Most Enjoyable Car I Ever Owned!!

Very luxurious vehicle. Solid smooth ride. Floats on the highway like being in a cloud. I fell safe, encapsulated from the noisy world, and most of all, feel extremely pampered from the moment I step inside. Very quick for a big sedan. Great displayes, comfy seats, and intuitive navi systems. All luxury features in competing car manufacturers are here, but for less money. But, let us be real: $60K is still alot of money. But, nice things cost money. However, the value for dollar is stronger in this product than the others. Also, there is some exclusivity. Most people are still eyeing the equus. Everyone (and their mother) have BMWs and the like. Be different! Stand out! Enjoy the ride.
