    Default Does your DMV registration say Genesis or Hyundai?

    When my dealer printed the temporary registration on my 2017 G80, he put Genesis as the Make. When the FL DMV registration came last week, it said Hyundai. I asked the dealer about this. His explanation was...Hyundai can call the Genesis a separate brand, but DMV recognizes it as a Hyundai because it still has a Hyundai VIN. Is this what others are seeing on the 2017 Genesis models?

    Mine was the other way around. Dealer entered make as Hyundai but GA tag office entered make as Genesis.

    There is another thread about this on the forum.

    It seems to vary. I bought mine in Oct and the paperwork the dealer filled out said Hyundai and the title paperwork came back as Hyundai. Some people on the forum have Genesis as the make.

    During my transaction on New Years Eve, my dealer told me that I was the first one in MN to lease a '17 Genesis anything. I had to go back a few days later and re-sign a couple documents as the State of Minnesota was not recognizing Genesis as a brand (yet).

    You can tell that "Genesis" is doing everything it can to separate itself from Hyundai, from an ownership perspective (it's own financing/leasing company, a separately branded ownership experience website, its own app). But at the end of the day, we all know it still rolled out of a Hyundai Vehicle Assembly facility in Korea.

    FL's DMV hasn 't gotten back to me yet, but it has to be the VIN. That must still be a Hyundai VIN when DMV inputs it into the system.

    It's definitely the VIN. The first few letters are KMH and KMH = Hyundai Korea (passenger & multi-purpose vehicle).

    Just got this reply back from FL DMV...."CUSTOMER SERVICE RESPONSE: Thank you for your inquiry, The vehicle is listed based on the manufacturer certificate of origin (MCO). In which the MCO is used to create the title for the vehicle, and based on the MCO the make for this vehicle is Hyundai. Hopefully this information will assist you." So, as things stand now, Hyundai can call it a Genesis, but it's still a Hyundai. At least in Florida it is. Oh well.
