"Hey man! What kind of car is that?"
2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe
The Genesis Turbo Coupe impresses me. It's A Rear-wheel Drive turbo sports car, just the platform I wanted. The body of the vehicle appears as if it was shaped by the wind itself, with beautiful lines. It has an aggressive stance, and it seems to stand out from other cars on the road. It isn't uncommon for someone to ask me what kind of car it is. People have stopped at lights and … rolled their windows down to ask. One guy said he followed me for four blocks. Aside from how it looks, mine is a 6-Speed Manual. The car runs strong through the gears/power band and sounds great -it's very satisfying behind the wheel, and luckily the Genesis Turbo Coupe can be easily modified for those who wish for more power. Shifting the Genesis is smooth and easy, however I must say, the rpm's do seem to hang just barely between shifts as compared to previous 6-Speed manuals I've driven in the past. However, this isn't a deal breaker for me, but I think it's an honorable mention. The traction control button on this car is extremely important. To the left of the steering wheel there is a button: "TCS" - Traction Control System. If traction control is turned off, you must be careful powering through turns as the wheels are free to spin and slide the back end. With TCS ON, the wheels use electronic control to prevent from breaking loose. I have rules: If I'm on the highway, TCS must be ON. If it is raining, TCS ON. Winter time...TCS ON! The winter in this vehicle makes for a questionable journey. Winter, with snow covered roads, is not fun. I've made it though the last 2 mild winters here. Lots of tire spinning and driving carefully. OVERALL: The Genesis Turbo Coupe looks incredible, sounds and performs terrific. When treated with care and well maintained, this car is a gemstone. UPDATE: Year 5 of owning the car now, and I've driven it pretty hard. Not to excess, but I accelerate aggressively and shift around 4k pretty quite a bit. I've changed the oil at 3,000 miles every time with full-synthetic. My last car payment is this month, and I'll own it. The only 'major' repair was it needed a new timing chain at around 115,000 miles, which cost me about $1,500. Be aware: I got lucky. Upon inspecting my timing chain, it has become so loose it actually had enough play to make contact with the 'oil nozzle' that provides oil to the chain and sheared it closed. Had I waited even a few weeks longer, had that chain broke the engine would have been ruined. I also had no warning lights to indicate the issue, only a faint 'rattle' kind of noise that was coming from the chain when shifting into the next gear, and it as I moved through the gears shifting it it become more difficult to make perfectly smooth transitions. Just change the timing-chain at 100,000 miles and you're good. My right front strut is blown I think, too. The suspension could probably be replaced now at 125,000 miles. I've had the little 'bump-stop' noise from the right front strut for about 10,000 miles now. It's very vague, and not urgent. It's a 2010 and people still shout at me across parking lots, "Hey man, what kind of car is that?" I'd do it all over again if I could go back, no regrets with the Genesis Coupe here.
