Ran into you again this morning at roughly 5:00am- apparently you come in on the Mopac toll as well (and I must say, you were hauling glutious maximus this morning! Be careful on that toll; I've had a motorcycle cop trip my laser detector at about that same hour before).
I don't own a Genesis yet but I'm really liking what I see with the new GV80.
Do you use the Round Rock Hyundai dealership? Have any contacts in sales at that location? I'm in Austin but drive past that location almost everyday to take my kiddos to soccer at the RR sports complex. Stopped by last week and spoke to a guy who said he's certified with Genesis. Wasn't too helpful as he said he didn't know anything other than what's posted online.
Ah, and I see you use 360 too! I live right off of there. Will be looking for your car.
Hi Barca, I'm sorry I just notice this post. Round Rock is okay, I've had some disagreements with their service department before. I haven't bought any of my cars there so I couldn't speak on the sales experience. Actually I haven't bought any of my Genesis vehicles in the Austin area. I tried to buy my 2010 sedan at Southpoint Hyundai but they didn't offer the Hyundai extended service plan at the time (I found out later that Hyundai didn't actually offer their own branded extended service plan until 2012; they used someone else's).
I have a G70 now; did you end up buying a Genesis?
HI Aquineas! No, not yet. GV80 hasn't shown up at the dealership yet. Wanted to see it in person before I make my final decision. Still can't decide between this and X5 but then I just read recently that MDX will have a Type S option in the redesigned model. I don't like soft mushy rides like those found in Lexus cars/suv's so I wasn't sure how a GV80 would feel. I didn't want to jump in and put a deposit down for GV80 until I get a chance to see how it drives. Now that there is concrete proof that Type S variant will be available, it makes the decision more difficult. I just don't know when Type S will come out, though. I'm debating if I want to wait that long. Or just decide between GV80 and X5?
Where did you purchase all your Genesis cars from?
Glad to find some neighbors. I'm in the market for a upscale midsize SUV also. Originally interested in the Aviator, but the production quality really sucks and scares me. Find the GV 80 and really love it. How is Genesis service experience? What other cars are you cross shopping?
