Hyundai Genesis 3.8

Since I am in the market for a new car, went to test drive a few cars yesterday with a buddy.

Let me tell you that the Hyundai Genesis 3.8 impressed me quite a bit. Nav system kicked ass, and the car was a joy to drive.

Next year Genesis is gonna be a separate brand on its own... good move from their part because of the reputation that Hyundai has right now.

Worth a test drive for all of you guys out there! Sound system kicked ass too... i am impressed... Hyundai has come a long way.

Question

are you talking about the coupe or the sedan, as you can get a 3.8 in either genesis (base engine in sedan, optional engine in the coupe).

To the op, Idk why you posted that here. Posting anything but GM/Chevy is suicide here. I myself like the car, but others here really don't. Basically because the Hyundai beat's their v6 haha. Enjoy being flamed man.

Nah, mainly cause it's a RWD Tiburon that's priced too high for it's performance. The 3.8 with track pack cost as much as an SS and barely outperforms the LT

370z looks 100x better than the genesis, the genesis looks kinda girly imo

It depends what you get on the 2ss. I have seen them go for 40k+. I mean, if you want to get into, I will just go buy a smart car, and get a gixxer engine on it, and then bye bye haha.

Ok, then factor in the cost of the basic upgrades you will need to do before you get the supercharger, the installation price, and then might as well go after a tune, because you wouldn't be able to afford a supercharger with installation afterwards lol. It still wouldn't hit the 540hp mark like the gt500.

It's unbelievable how much shops charge to install things. I'd personally do it myself, but most are not as mechanically knowledgeable.

I am not saying I am going to do all this lol I am just saying that the GT500 isn't too much ahead of the SS


Sorry everyone back on topic lol

Don't listen to those reviews. They are often biased, and have crappy drivers. I know others who can really drive cars, and they would easily pull out another .1-.2 out of a car. May not seem like a lot, but it is.

Yeah I love comparing cars that cost $15,000 more dollars too. Hey you know that the Z06 is so much better than the GT500?!

BTW, the Genesis performs a little better than the V6.
