2011 Hyundai Genesis
2011 Hyundai Genesis
The Hyundai Genesis has brought a very positive boost to the Hyundai brand and the new lineup of powerful full sized sedans have made the Hyundai company much more than an economy car maker in the public's eyes. This is a change that has been long in the making and finally has come to pass with the Genesis and Equus are really turning heads not only in the auto industry. The Genesis sedan brings a very powerful car to the foreground of the Hyundai lineup. This model can come with engines offering 290 horsepower forma 3.8 liter V-6 engine or 385 horsepower from a 4.6 liter V-8 engine. Both of the motor options in the Genesis offer a good amount of power, but the V-8 can turn this sedan into a very fast car for a 4 seat vehicle. The Genesis also offers a surprising amount of fuel efficiency considering its powerful motor. This car can get up to 27 MPG on the highway.

Being compared to the Toyota Avalon and other well respected power sedans, this new model from Hyundai has yet to prove itself, but has a lot of potential.

2012 Hyundai Genesis R Spec Profile
Prices for the Hyundai Genesis sedan rise slightly for the 2012 model year, reflecting an array of engine and transmission upgrades which have also resulted in improved fuel economy. All Genesis sedans now employ a Hyundai-developed eight-speed automatic, replacing the former six-speed transmission.

Back at the 2009 Seoul Motor Show, Hyundai unveiled a special-edition Genesis sedan tailored to suit the tastes of Prada CEO Patrizio Bertelli. Only three copies of that car were built, but now two years on, Hyundai is launching a larger production run of the car.

Getting into this Hyundai Genesis sedan naturally brought back thoughts of our departed Four Seasons 2009 Hyundai Genesis. I immediately felt at home and comfortable behind the wheel and realized how much I had missed the Genesis being in our regular rotation of vehicles. There's something simple and honest about the controls for everything from the climate control to the navigation and stereo systems. No finicky touch screens, no need for voice commands, and it all seems to work effortlessly when you just want to make a quick adjustment.

The Genesis sedan sure is a fine luxury car. Granted, it probably won't wow badge snobs or passionate enthusiasts, but just about anyone else who wants a luxurious large car would likely be very happy to live with a Hyundai Genesis. Especially since its starting price (with a V-6) is only $33K and it comes with Hyundai's excellent warranty (including a ten-year/100,000-mile powertrain guarantee). Clearly, based on sales numbers (the BMW 5-series and the Mercedes-Benz C-class, for instance, handily outsell the Genesis), most buyers DO care about their vehicle's branding, but nearly 30,000 luxury Hyundais sold is certainly nothing to sneeze at.

It's been about a year since the 2009 Hyundai Genesis 4.6 left our long-term test fleet, and the short time I spent in this 2011 Genesis only served to cement my opinions about the car. The Genesis is a luxurious cruiser that somehow has managed to carve a niche for itself in an already crowded market. It is very unobtrusive, yet it is that very unobtrusiveness that makes it such a winning proposition. It doesn't seem to try to be anything other than a comfortable, well-engineered, relatively affordable sedan that gives good value for the money. And with an eight-speed automatic and a direct-injected V-6 on the way next year, it appears that the Genesis will only continue to raise Hyundai's status as a manufacturer.

Summary
Hyundai Motor Company (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2006-2009 Accent, model year 2007-2011 Azera, Sonata and Sante Fe,2006-2011 Tucson, 2009-2011 Elantra Touring, 2007-2010 Elantra, 2008-2011 Veracruz, 2009-2011 Genesis, 2010-2011 Genesis Coupe, 2007-2008 Entourage, and 2006-2008 Tiburon vehicles. Originally, in April 2013, Hyundai recalled 1,059,824 model year 2007-2009 Accent and Tucson, model year 2007-2010 Elantra, model year 2007-2011 Santa Fe, model year 2008-2009 Veracruz, model year 2010-2011 Genesis Coupe, and model year 2011 Sonata vehicles. In September 2013, Hyundai informed the agency that it was adding more vehicles to this campaign, representing an additional 652,512 units. The total number of vehicles being recalled is now 1,712,336. In the affected vehicles, the stop lamp switch may malfunction. A malfunctioning stop lamp switch may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause an inability to deactivate the cruise control by depressing the brake pedal. Additionally, a malfunctioning stop lamp switch may also result in intermittent operation of the push-button start feature, affect the operation of the brake transmission shift interlock feature, preventing the shifter from being moved out of the PARK position and cause the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) malfunction light to illuminate.
Consequences
Failure to illuminate the stop lamps during braking or inability to disengage the cruise control could increase the risk of a crash. Additionally, when the ignition is in the 'ON' position, the transmission shifter may be able to be moved out of Park without first applying the brake. This may lead to unintentional movement of the car which may increase the risk of a crash.
Remedy
Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the stop lamp switch, free of charge. The safety recall began on April 22, 2013. Owners may contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai's recall campaign number is 110.
