My affection toward cars.

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!

Exceptional luxury without the luxury price tag.

If you want a luxury car and do not want to pay luxury prices, the genesis is the way to go. I have all the features I need and more. I am not fond of the gas mileage, but it is a v8 so I knew that going into the purchase. It handles very well and has the get up and go when needed. It is large enough to seat four adults quite comfortably. The trunk is huge! Overall, I am very happy with the car.

THAT I PUT MY HEART INTO THAT CAR BECAUSE ITS MY PASSION

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MY GENESIS COUPE. iT IS COMPLETELY CUSTOMIZED BY ME. FROM THE CUSTOM EXHAUST SYSTEM TO THE WHEELS AND STEREO TO THE FULL RACE SUSPENSION. WHAT I LIKE MOST IS THAT I DID EVERY BIT OF WORK ON THE CAR MYSELF WITH NO ONES HELP. tHE ONLY COMPLAINT I HAVE IS THAT IT RIDES A LITTLE BIT ROUGH ON REGULAR STREETS.

The size of it and the color.

I really don't have problems with my car since I have had it the only thing that went wrong was the headlights but other than that it's been running just fine and I love that I don't have to spend too much money on gas. It gets me to where I have to go I have even told my friends if they decide to buy a car by a Hyundai.

Review on a 2012 genesis.

We have had absolutely no issues with the car. I would like it to have better view when driving from the front seat this is the only criticism. We have been very happy with it. The back seat heaters are very nice. E would have preferred not to have snow tires on it ever winter but I understand the.

- Mary R

Reliable auto would recommend.

Very reliable auto, brought used could not afford new. Comfortable and good mileage considering its an 8 cylinder. Reliable, no performance problems to date other than air conditioner went out just prior to the 5 year warrant limit. It only has 47, 00 plus miles on it we have owned for 3 years.

- Melinda S

As I mentioned before, the car is very reliable. I have had no issues in 8 years with it. It has great handling and is very responsive

I like that it is reliable. In eight years the only cost invested on it has been for new tires and oil & filter changes. The only thing I don't like is The leather used on the steering wheel, it has been replaced twice already (within warranty)

- David R

It runs great and is reliable. I rarely have to have it serviced and then it is usually just routine maintenance.

My car is extremely comfortable. It has individual controls for heating and cooling, including for the back seat. The driver's seat even has cooling options. It is a smooth ride and has a built in navigation system and backup camera.

My Hyundai Genesis coupe, fast and good looking.

I am basically happy with my vehicle as far as the way it handles, gas mileage, and comfort. It did need to have timing chain replaced which was a very expensive repair. Other than that it's been a pretty good car

- Rebecca L

Reliable and cost effective. Might not the best fanciest car, but economical.

I've had problems pumping the gas. For whatever reason, there are some pumps at gas stations where the pumping will automatically keep stopping. You then have to manually hold the pump to fill your tank.

- Randy T

The Genesis coupe is really fast but should be driven by a responsible driver and not a teenager.

I love my vehicle. I got it because it's sleek and fast and I really like how it handles on the road. My only complaint is the inner door handles are cheap and break easily.

- Brad E

The Genesis is in the same class as a Mercedes or BMW as far as luxury. The bonus is that it is 1/3 of the cost of maintenance as the other luxury vehicles.

Great car.....only thing I don't like is that it has rear wheel drive, and therefore, is terrible in the snow! I believe it was changed to AWD the following year model

- Pamela B

It has a very smooth and comfortable ride and is fun to drive.

I love my Genesis because it's very stylish and extremely comfortable. It comes with Navigation, heated seats, and a key fob which I love. I receive many compliments

- Rhonda S

Smooth drive, good handling

I don't like the 2 door and cloth seats. My A/C recently broke or is in need of free-on. For a 4 cylinder car, gas mileage could be better. But overall, drives great.

- Keith L

The most important thing to know is that the car is lower than most, be careful on speed bumps.

I love the handling of the vehicle. I love the style of the interior. I love the power the vehicle has. I don't like that it has hail damage.

- Niall F

It is built well and when the engine is running, the car wants to go.

I like that the Genesis logo is not the Hyundai logo. I dislike the shift-tronics. I love how quick it is with the turbo.

- fallon J

I feel that it's a safe car with a few safety features

The comfort and smooth ride. I don't like the exhaust dust that is on the inside of the car . I like the navigation system

- Kathleen M

That is good on gas and it good on the road.

I like my vehicle a lot I enjoy driving it I think it is a very good car to drive and it is also very good on gas.

- Brandy W

It is a Honda and that means quality.

I love the looks and the drive. Very sporty and fun. Dislike the way the fabric is holding up in interior.

- Derrick K

Great car. I would buy an Genesis. Great on gas. It's is a luxury family car.

I have a V8 engine. I have leather seats. I don't like it's only 4 doors. I wish it was a SUV.

- Lee M

It's a luxury car that's only a 2012. Perfectly equipped for larger people.

Electronic features like automatic windows. Also the seat settings and steering wheel.

- Bernard R

Comfortable luxury at a great price with great gas mileage for a v8

Spacious, comfortable, great on gas, great tech features. Nav is not intuitive

- Fred W
