Get ready for a great oil change story! Call my dealer to arrange for first oil change on my 2020 3.3 Sport G70. I ask if I can be assured they will use synthetic oil. "NO" I am immediately told because "your car was specifically designed to run on non-synthetic oil and it would not be good to use synthetic." I told the service tech that was utterly absurd. We argued, I finally said can I pay to have you use synthetic? "NO, because using synthetic oil will void your warranty" This man was not joking! So, if I want to have them change the oil I have no choice but to use cheap oil! If you plan to take advantage of free service Genesis advertises, do not purchase your car from Fitzgerald Auto Mall in Rockville, Maryland. Be warned.
Unbelievable! Goes to show you, premium cost (going to dealer) does not always mean premium service/competence.
You "free service" is honored at any Genesis dealer. There is some debate whether a Hyundai dealer will honor. Call around. I'd expect there are several H/G dealers in your over-crowded "neck of the woods". When I lived in MD I bought my 2011 Hyundai Genesis 3.8 from Fitzgerald, but used the Hyundai Frederick, MD dealer (closer to home) to service it and was generally satisfied.
