    This is not a thread to project the reliability of this engine, more so just observations I have found looking into the engine. It is much to early to figure out if this is a good engine or not. Just wanted to make some notes. Upon looking into the 2.5T engine currently in the Genesis line-up...

    Every 2000-3000 miles my Equus is 1.5-2 quarts low on oil. I replaced my pcv valve last month so it’s not that, and I never have smoke coming out the exhaust.

    It looks like with the refresh Genesis will not offer the v8 on the G80 and only for a few years with the G90. Afterwards, that is it: https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a27506533/genesis-v-8-engine-future/

  12. Engine Whining -- 2011 Genesis Sedan 3.8 -- Anyone Else Have This?

    I have a 2011 Genesis sedan 3.8, and the engine has been making a whining noise. It started during the past year and has gotten progressively louder.
