deadly accelarating delay from a rolling stop
By phunywun on


2012 Hyundai Genesis 3.8 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 8A)


I have the 6 cyl sedan and the deadly delay from when you hit the gas pedal till the car moves is about 1-2 seconds from a rolling stop. That's long enough to get someone killed not to mention every time you go over a speed bump and hit the gas it takes a whole second or two before the car moves. That's not positive reaction by any means. It's deadly when you are trying to turn across traffic. Love the car otherwise but will not get another one if this issue isn't fixed. I guess there is no throttle cable and it's an electronic accelarater for the deadly delay

I gave it a 2 for reliability because the ac compressor stopped working at 3000 miles and it took them a week to fix it

Did you get this repaired. If so was it under warranty
