4.9

Great used car value

This is 3rd Genesis. Owned a 2013 3.8, 2015 5.0 and now bought a certified 2014 3.8. Great quiet compliant ride, new continental tires big improvement. Engine very responsive and averages 20 mpg. Only issue is blower motor which was replaced for free. Outstanding dealer experience at Rick Case Weston.

5.0

Best car I ever owned!

Extremely comfortable and reliable. In four years of ownership the only problem I ever had was that the alternator went & I had to put in a new one. Other than that all I ever replaced was tires & brakes & inder-hood rubber (hoses). I got an oil change very frequently and that's all it took. I'd sell this car to my own brother!
