TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability And Durability of the Hyundai Genesis

Hyundai Genesis Reliability And Durability: Pros
YearComment
2016 When I first reviewed the new Genesis, it hadn't even reached dealers yet, so of course no reliability data were available. The original Genesis had some common problems during its first few model years, so it wouldn't have surprised me if the same was the case with the thoroughly revised second-generation car. Well, the only somewhat common problem involved a tendency for the Hankook tires initially fitted to the car to form flat spots in cold temperatures. We don't count tire issues in our reliability stats, as their cause can be hard to determine. Also, tires are warrantied separately by the tire manufacturer. In this case, though, Hyundai not only switched to a different tire (Michelins for the V6, Continentals for the V8) on new cars but offered to switch the tires on already sold cars. It's rare for a company to take such a big step in response to a small number of minor complaints. And the car itself? A few dozen members have now had a 2015 Genesis for a year or more, and the great majority of their cars didn't require a single repair last year. This is very good for a luxury sedan in its first model year. Granted, Audis tend to be about equally reliable during their first few years, then worsen. It's still too early to say how reliable the new Genesis will be when four-plus years old. But even if it has more problems when older, repairs are likely to be simpler and much less expensive than they tend to be for an Audi. So I'm comfortable listing reliability among the reasons to buy a Genesis. Also note that the Genesis has a longer standard warranty than the A6, 5/60 vs. 4/50 on nearly the entire car and 10/100 (for the first owner) vs. 4/50 on the powertrain. full 2016 Hyundai Genesis review
