Bought the Genesis 4.6 with Tech package 2 weeks ago. Before that I spend at least 6 weeks researching and driving almost every luxury car on the market. This car blows most of the others away on value alone. It drives great, has a wonderful interior and the Hyundai version of I-Drive is very easy to use. I have had 2 people get out of their cars in a parking lots to come and ask me what kind of car I was driving.

I bought a like-new certified pre-owned 2010 Genesis 3.8 - my first import ever. Simply put, I just don't think there is any more car out there for the money. If your ego requires that you have the status of a Lexus, Benz, or BMW nameplate, stop reading now and go spend the $20K-$30K that you'll need to get that badge. The 3.8 has plenty of horsepower,and I recently got 30 mpg on an 800 mile trip (much better than the already decent hwy mpg rating that it has). LIke many reviewers have said, there is nothing new or daring about the exterior design, but that's another way of saying it's pretty indistinguishable from the much-higher priced competitors in its class. One major downside (and I think it's something that Hyundai will need to address if they want to penetrate the premium market) is that to buy a Genesis (and now, Equus) you have to go to a Hyundai dealer. I have not experienced the kind of premium service that one should expect to get from a dealer that sells premium cars. As things are now, if you shop for and buy a Genesis, you'll get a "Cadillac" car, but you'll get "Chevrolet" attitude and service.

2010-3.8 v6 premium package. i had a caddilac deville , i'm a big man 6'3" 280 lbs. room is inportant to me. the genesis has the most room in its class. looked at (infiniti m35)(bmw 5 series)(lexus es350)(ford taurus)and (toyotia avalon).it was no contest,the only problem was getting my wife to except a hyundai , she drives a bmw 330ci convertible.so i changed all the bagges,no (H) on my car .i don't care but it makes a big differance to her, go figure . the genesis has great handling(not a sports car),290 horse v6 has plenty of power, interier is plush,14 speakers(great sound)exterier has a european look , ok with me.getting 22-23mpg around town.like i said, so far so good.

What a bargin for the car you get. It is fast and quick. Reliable and modern day design have lifted Hyundai to a new level. I test drove over 11 cars in this day of modern coupes the infinity, the nissan mazima, Audi A5, nissan 370z, camareo, sho taraus, caillac to name a few but for the money the Genesis coupe beat them hands down. It has everything power all the amenities, blue tooth, voice naviagation and paddle shifters. Modern interior with great wrap around seats. It was priced about on average 8,000 cheaper than the above cars. If you wnat excitement and a great ride the Genesis Coupe is the bomb for teh money. Jc

Outstanding Value

Best car for the money. Powerful V8, (0-60 in 5.3 seconds) and surprisingly economical! The interior is roomy, the leather is as smooth as silk and the amenities are abundant. The fit and finish equal the best available -and at 1,000s less! All of this and it comes with the best warranty out there. If you don't consider this vehicle because of its badge your stumbling over your ego. OUCH! Nick J. Like they say, ("Think about it.") No, I do not work for or am I associated with Hyundai other than being a customer and cat enthusiast.

I never thought of a Hyundai,having had Cads,Lincolns,Lexus,and a Jag. But Genisis is a class itself, Every aspect is quality, the V8 is a powerhouse with surprizingly good mileage. The warrenty is unbeatable, and unlike others there has been no recall. Only thing I wish it had was a back seat lighter for G-kids DVD.

Bang for the buck

I traded in an 07 E-350. I got tired of the high maintenance for a car that did not brake. The Mercedes is a very good car and handles well. My 2010 Genesis rides much smoother but does not handle better than the E350 but, the genesis is a really good car. My biggest problem with the Genesis is the Dunlop tires and the gas tank should have at least been a 22 gallon tank. Other than that I have no complaints. Keep up the good work Hyundai.
