3.8 RWD, 30-80 MPH fastest I went. Vibration in seat and Wheel. Heavy at 70-80. What was done on drive shaft issues. Are the bulk of G80's Vibration free. Is mine a fluke or common problem?
Thanks TG

Once and then they replaced tires ( Flat Spots?). Again next week, hopefully will be fixed. TG

Tomi, I have 2020 Genesis G80. Developed a vibration at 25027mph 2 weeks after purchase. My dealership has replicated the problem 3 times and determined it is in the torque converter, part of the transmission. Genesis does not yet have a fix. I registered a complaint with Genesis America customer care. They advise so far 20% of the vehicles have this problem and they are trying to figure out a fix to issues a TSB or recall. Meanwhile, they offered compensation or buy back. You should contact them and get a claim started.

That's not good. May I ask if ALL G80s use the same transmission? And is there a VIN range where this issue is possible, or are ALL 2020 models potentially affected? With my luck, I'd easily be in that 20%. Ha ha. And I'd be getting out of a problematic vehicle to buy this one, so no way I'd do it if it's possible to have serious transmission issues. Thank you.

Seems odd it would only affect a percentage of the cars when they're all made the same way. Also, was there a tranny change in the 2020? I thought changes from 19 to 20 were minimal / cosmetic. I've got the 19 G80.

I have a 2018 5.0 which has same issue but not all the time. Seems to only be at lower speeds and lower RPMs. Have others with 5.0 experienced it.

It may be flat spotting of the tires. After the car sits, even overnight, the tires have cap plires over the belts that are made out of nylon and they can have a low-level vibration until the tires warm up. about 5 miles.
