2009 Hyundai Genesis V6: Answers
September 23, 2009
You can find the questions in the Open Thread. Here are the answers:
@wasabi911: Very quiet. The acoustic laminated glass, the padded leather dash, the tight seams all contribute to its quietness. Even the engine doesn't intrude much on the peace of the cabin.
@dbt: rear headroom is 37.7 inches. I'm only 5'4" so I can't really speak for the tall guys. I haven't heard any of them complain. I'll ask one of the six-footers to get back there and take a photo.
@altimadude00: The suspension feels a little strange to me but not harsh. It's definitely a comfortable ride. Read Dan's suspension walkaround for more info.
@line3: We lost a bit of paint when the Genesis got scuffed up back in March. But we haven't had any problems other than that. Highway ride is very pleasant. Smooth, quiet, comfortable with lots of luxury features. Strangely, I've never had anyone ask me about it. But people seem to ask Chris about it often.
@allenr13: Our car has the optional $4,000 technology package that adds the high-end audio system. I don't have a good ear for the differences between audio systems. But everyone else on the team seems to thinks it's first-rate.
