The 2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe makes a great alternative to the smaller Honda Civic Si coupe and pricier Volkswagen GTI. Driving enthusiasts will enjoy the Genesis Coupe’s rear-wheel drive...

My affection toward cars.

2012 Hyundai Genesis

I was a die hard in the wool Lincoln town car fan, my last couple being a 2004 & 2010. Then they sent us searching elsewhere by discontinuing the town car. I was forced to shop elsewhere. It was my 13 year old son who introduced me to the genesis. A single test drive in a 2012 genesis 4. 6 sedan and half way through I was asking if they had 2! My banker called it the corvette killer! I have actually had a Corvette, and that is a whole different world - let alone car. That is in no way a slight to my Genny! She is a beast, both a technology wizard, but with the old fashioned gumption to back it up!

This is the fastest car I have ever had. It accelerates quick.

2012 Hyundai Genesis 3.8 Grand Touring Coupe

The car itself is GREAT. The only issue that I have with the vehicle is the aftermarket coilovers that were added to it, making it impossible for me to get around without bottoming out. The car is quick, fun to drive, smooth and overall great. The touch screen radio is still working perfectly, the speakers that come in the car are really good, I didn't have to do anything to the speakers. Even though it is a coup, there is still a lot of room in the front, it looks spacious as you are driving, however, the back is pretty small of course. I would recommend this car.

It holds gas well for long car rides, $25.00 to fill up the tank.

2012 Hyundai Genesis 2.0T Premium

My vehicle is reliable. It does really well on gas and the mileage is good. I have had it for 3 years going on 4. I've had a few starter problems but I got it fixed for a reasonable price. The features are great. My favorite feature is the Bluetooth with great speakers. The AC and heat work wonders as well. I also had a fuse problem where my horn wasn't working but like the starter problem, I got it fixed within a reasonable price as well. It's also very spacious, the trunk can hold many items/belongings which is ideal for traveling.
