  • More for the money than most... - 2015 Hyundai Genesis
    By -

    I have only owned my Hyundai Genesis for 1 month, so I'm still learning about the car and it's performance. But so far it's everything that I expected. Most of the reviews that I read about the Genesis prior to my purchase spoke about the "value" associated with this car. You clearly get more features with the Genesis than cars from other companies at the same price point. I've found this to be totally true. I decided to forgo the extra packages that are optional with the Genesis because I felt that the stock model had most everything that I want at this point. The only option I added was the AWD since I live in Connecticut. But you can clearly get some great options if you're willing to upgrade. The Genesis is pretty quiet, and has a smooth ride. But it has no performance or handling weaknesses. It's a nice blend of both. And that's what I was looking for. The interior is really comfortable. I feel like I'm in a cockpit. I'm 6' 3" and I have both ample head room and leg room in the Genesis. I like the instrumentation, and the entertainment/navigation system is touch screen, and very easy to use. My wife commented that she has "Navigation envy" since my screen is so much easier to view and understand than her car. The Blue tooth was easy to set up, and works great. I personally love the look/design of the Genesis. And the added security of the Hyundai warranty made me feel more secure in my purchase.

  • In the end it was worth it! - 2015 Hyundai Genesis
    By -

    The Genesis is awesome in many ways. Safety, design, comfort....the list goes on and on. Test drive and you'll see. If you want to eliminate the negotiations part of it go to north county Hyundai. By far the quickest to get to a fair price without the hassles and common practices a dealership will put you thru. I spoke to 15 dealerships and it only took them 15 minutes before I felt comfortable giving them my credit information. That's what you call getting down to business.

    Everything and more than more expensive cars. Looks good going down the road of parked and the interior is nice. All wheel drive is tops on my list.

  • Switched from a BMW to a Genesis - 2015 Hyundai Genesis
    By -

    I've had 5 BMW's: 2 740's, 2 135 convertibles and an X3. I guess you could say that I enjoy BMW's driving performance. But, I recently went on a long trip and I got tired of the BMW's rough ride. Sure, you feel the road, but you also feel all the bumps. So, I decided to look around. I found what I was looking for in the Genesis. It's much, much smoother than the BMW. Much more comfortable. The BMW jumps off the start faster, but the Genesis starts smoothly and then picks up. Their 0-60 specs are very similar. I went with the 5.0 to get the extra horsepower. The V-8 does accelerate well when you want it to. I test drove a BMW 535 for comparison. The Genesis is much better equipped. I really like the Lane Assist, which I didn't see on the BMW. The Lane Assist nudges you back into your lane by itself. That makes it very relaxing to drive. I also like the Adaptive Cruise control. I had one of those in a 2006 Infiniti, but it very jerky and only used it on long trips. This cruise control works in city driving. Again, it's very smooth. So, between the Lane Assist and the Adaptive Cruise control it's very comfortable. The Auto Hold feature is nice. With it on, when you stop you don't have to keep your foot on the brake. Very nice. I only wish I could set a default to have it on all the time. Overall, I'm thrilled with the car. Of course, I also like the price. I saved money and bought more car.

  • Great car, but same lock problem - 2015 Hyundai Genesis
    By -

    Just like many, I absolutely love the car and was thinking about getting a 5-series before I decided on it. Feel like I got as good or better (my wife has a BMW) car for $15-$20K less. I am having exactly the same lock problem as the person I just read. Better not be $500.

  • Love It * (all except paying for remote start) - 2015 Hyundai Genesis
    By -

    Great value in a luxury sedan. Happy Hyundai just announced it's launching distinct Genesis dealerships in the US, which will do nothing to enhance the driving experience, yet much to boost the prestige of driving one of the better luxury cars on the market. My 3.8 AWD is fully loaded, and short of a true remote start and auto park (offered by FAR lesser cars), I can't ask for any more features. My only gripe is that remote start is not available EXCEPT through an expensive upgrade to BlueLink, and it has to be the right BlueLink package. Seriously Hyundai? My mid-level 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited has the feature on the key FOB. For my $52K Genesis, I have to log into an APP, and work my way through several screens JUST to start the car remotely? Oh, and I have to pay for that experience....renewed annually.

  • Amazing Machine - 2015 Hyundai Genesis
    By -

    I have always considered myself a "brand snob" and purchased Lexus, Volvo, BMW, etc. I never would have believed that a Hyundai would be my favorite car that I've ever owned. The fit and finish is impeccable, the ride is sublime and power delivery is smooth. Before making the purchase I cross-shopped a 5-series which felt small, and cost $20k more with equal equipment. If I had to gripe about something it would be: no keyless sensors on rear two doors, you still have to push a button to unlock the front doors (lexus you just pull the handles), the rain sensing wipers don't work well, the city gas mileage sucks. The pros far outweigh the cons though. If you are on the fence, just test drive one. Even if you don't purchase you will be amazed at just how far this brand has come.

    4th genesis and they keep getting better. Leased my 1st one in 2009 didn't think it would get any better until I got the 2015 Genesis. Now I know the only car that is better is my Equis.

  • Problems with door locks - 2015 Hyundai Genesis
    By -

    I absolutely love my 2015 Genesis. It's performance and finish are well above average. For the money it is a very nice automobile. However I recently had a problem with the passenger and rear doors. They would not unlock unless you crawled inside and manually unlocked each door. I took the car to the dealership for repair. After more than a week they found the problem, but informed me that it would not be covered by warranty. They stated that it was caused by external sources. Close inspection of the car shows that not liquid has been ever been spilled on the driver side door where the dealer said liquid had been spilled. i don't know what the external sources could be. Anyway it cost me $500 to replace the door module. This makes me question the validity of the car's warranty. I have written it off as maintenance, but should another incident like this occur I will definitely trade this car even though I love it.

  • Compares to my old Lexus LS 430 2006 - 2015 Hyundai Genesis
    By -

    Head lights do not go on when wipers turned on. Bluetooth sucks asking at least 3 questions sometime 5 to dial. Great move going to the low profile tires gives the Lexus ride without the power but hey it's a 6 cylinder not an 8 real roomy inside and I'm 300lbs plus which is why I went to the Lexus in the first place. I also miss the headlights that turned on the lexus when you made a turn. So far 4 month and 3000 miles I love it!
