Is the Genesis warranty fully transferable to the next owner?
If someone buys a 2 year old G90 will he/she retain the rest of the 10/100k warranty?

Read the fine print here:
The basic 5 year - 60K mile warranty is fully transferable, but the 10 year -100K mile powertrain warranty is for original owner only, unless the used car is sold by a Hyundai dealer as a CPO car. The dealer has to pay HMA a fee to make a car CPO, in part to offset the transferability of the powertrain warranty.
Not that on the 5 year - 60K mile warranty, that there are exceptions such as paint, battery, Radio and audio systems, etc (depending on model year) that you should read about at the above link.
Hyundai also offers extended warranties that can replicate or surpass the CPO warranty on the entire car. These are sold by any dealer (not just where you purchased the car new or used) and are honored by any USA Hyundai dealer.
Genesis Motors may have a slightly different warranty, so you should try and find out the details on that.

I guess you could go to a dealer, open the glove box, and see if you can find the written warranty terms.

Thanks Leggy. It looks like Genesis warranty transfer conditions are the same as Hyundai's. On a vehicle as technologically advanced as the G90, the 10/100k warranty seems like a great selling point that could help the resale value. We all know how the large luxury vehicle resale values plummets (maybe except for the LS) so the G90 will need all the help it could get. It looks like a CPO would be the best choice for the ones looking to buy used.

Having the option of buying a third party warranty coverage doesn't really affect the resale value of a vehicle, having a transferable warranty usually does.

The HPP extended warranty can be purchased at any Hyundai USA dealer (not just where you purchased the car) and can be purchased any time up until the regular 5 year - 60K warranty runs out. However, the price gets higher once the car is more than one year old. Dealers (usually the "Finance Guy") may "try" to sell these warranties at huge profits, but one can shop around. There are threads on this forum which discuss specific dealers who sell them at very reasonable prices on the phone. Some dealers also sell third-party warranties, so be careful to understand which warranty you are buying.
I have been discussing Hyundai extended warranties, and I assume that they are also available for Genesis Motors vehicles. The head of Genesis Motors USA reports to the CEO of HMA (Hyundai Motor America).
