  1. Thinking about buying a 2013 3.8

    Hey all, I'm looking pretty hard at buying a 2013 3.8 sold locally. It's got about 46,000 miles, so I figure it's got quite a bit of life yet. I've only owned domestics, like Grand Prix's, Bonnevilles, etc. I love the looks of the Genesis, and the power it offers for the price. Only thing is...
  2. Buying a used Hyundai Genesis? Are there any Canadian Genesis owners here?

  3. Auto Wipers in Snow

    So this is my first winter in my '13 genesis and I've noticed a few times in the snow the auto wipers are quite inconsistent. Often times they won't activate for a while even though the windshield is covered in water droplets. Not a huge deal but more annoyance than anything. They've operated...

    I bought a set of winter tires (Blizzak LM60) and they are hardly used. Now I am moving to Los Angeles. I have tried but am unable to sell them. What do people think about using them in Los Angeles? Perhaps only during the relatively mild winters.

  8. 18" wheels on 2012 3.8 Track for winter?

    I need to get snow tires for my new (to me) 2012 3.8 Track Coupe. Tire rack seems to believe that I can only get 19" rims, but I'd like to move to 18s if possible to lower the price. What specs (offset, etc.) do I need to look for that will give me the right wheels? And do I need to get offset...

    I am looking at a set of 18" TSW Rouge wheels for my winter setup on my Casablanca White 2015 5.0 AWD. Does anyone else have these on your Genny and if so can you post a pic? Unfortunately the TSW website doesn't list the Genny as an option for the simulator but they look great on a 5 series...
  13. Second Generation Winter Driving Question

    I am thinking about getting a 3.8 V6 RWD. I live in Northern VA so we obviously get snow. Generally I would not be driving in deep snow, since nearly everything is plowed quickly. Usually slush, fresh snow, or some packed snow on the street I live on. So my questions are these 1-How does it...

  17. Car Cover for the WINTER (SNOW)

    Before I ask: YES I read every post on this subject but none helped. What do those who've had experience with a valuable car and Northeast weather think of car covers for those of us who must leave our Best Beloved parked outside in all weathers? Are they good to protect from scratches when...
