I wish mine had that low of miles!
I am over 109000 miles now and the car is still great. Yes some maintenance issues in the last year or 2 but nothing major
enjoy the ride

Hey sorry for the late reply everyone I have had a busy week! But thanks so far I love it I am from Wisconsin I got the car for 17k from our local Lexus dealership. Before owning this I had a 2015 Ford Taurus SHO and I feel this car has more luxury features and its faster!

Thats the best news ever! I am very happy to hear these cars last a long time I was worried about how she will be long term 100k or more but reading this gave me relief. Now I just need to find out how well the Genesis RWD performs in snow, unfortunately since I am from Wisconsin snow is a must have..

I am in Ottawa, Canada. Further north than you. You will need 4 winters and I recommend Blizzaks ws80. They have worked for me over the past 4 winters and never had a problem. Obviously, if there is 10" of snow falling, you may have a problem but so will most others. And drive carefully in the snow and don't do stupid stuff and you will be fine

I hope my trans doesn't go out but thanks for the heads up I will be checking on it now and is this car known to to leak oil or just go through it more quickly? Also what grade of gas is recommended to run through this engine? Mine didn't come with an owners manual so I just filled it with premium the first fill, haha

'13 5.0 r-spec here, the manual says you can put put 87 or 91 in, but at a loss of performance; I think the inside of the gas flap indicates 91+; you're safe either way, technically =). I'm at 79k and no trans issues (yet). the '12s had a known oil-eating issue that is supposedly fixed in 13 onward. My experience is it will burn a little oil if you drive it hard (like 2 fingers between oil changes), much less if you're nice to it. Super congrats on such a low-mileage snag. I love mine but I think they only came in 3 colors....

edit: have you seen the manual at hyundai's site: https://owners.hyundaiusa.com/content/dam/hyundai/us/myhyundai/glovebox-manual/2013/genesis/2013_Hyundai_Genesis_OM.pdf

The green ECO light on your dash is only an indicator of your fuel usage/driving style. It doesn't change a thing about how the car works.

I think you mean the Hyundai Bluelink service (available 2013+):
Hyundai Blue Link | 3 Years Free on Eligible 2018 Models

I seen the little green light that says eco, but if you press the display button on the wheel and scroll to the eco mode page, then press and hold on display button I accidentally found out you can turn eco mode on and off here. I was wonder if that impacted the car in anyway or simply just lets me know when im getting good gas mileage , with it off the little eco display clearly left !

The first thing you need to do is get rid of that Lexus plate on the front!
