No Genesis Yet!
Genesis sold about 600 cars nationwide in August. I counted that there are a total of about 100 new G80 and G90 models in the Los Angeles/Orange County area so doesn't seem to be a shortage. What has been hurting sales is not a shortage but that there has been zero advertising. I bought my 3.3T G80 for $46,500 with 900 miles in San Jose but the Los Angeles dealers are trying to sell them for $49K - $51K. Very little discounting on the new 2018 models. Very little knowledge of the Genesis line from the sales force. Strange strategy for Hyundai to go silent on advertising Genesis while a pile of unsold cars are on dealers lots unless they are not planning to ship 2019 models until before the end of the year.
I'm in the market for a 2018 G80 Sport AWD. How long ago did you get yours for $46,500? I have dealers near me thar think they are worth much more still...and they have 2019's on the lot...

Hello Folks, new owner of a 2018 White G80 Sport AWD, loving the car so far.

Coming from a Cadillac XTS FWD na3.6, the Genny is leaps and bounds a better car all around.
The only thing I'm missing is the heated seats, heated steering wheel, rear defroster and heated mirrors won't turn on when remotely started.....Gets cold up here in Buffalo.

I have the same complaint. Too bad, otherwise it'd be almost perfect.

Just realized that I've never posted in this thread. As some of you know, since Florida has no Genesis dealers yet, I flew up to D.C. a couple of weeks ago to purchase a 2019 G80 Sport in Polar Ice and then drove it back home to Miami.

Here's a photo of my new acquisition.

I also just bought a white G80 3.3T. Your car looks great. What amount of blockage did you get for the window film?
I'll have to get back with you on that, because I don't recall exactly. I got the darkest lower on the rear windshield though, slightly less on the back, and the max allowed for the front.

Two weeks ago we became the proud owners of a 2019 G80 3.8 Ultimate - Victoria Black with gray interior. This replaces a beloved Mercedes E 320, but after 16 years it was time for an upgrade. We’ve owned Audi and BMW and did not want another. We looked at Lexus, Lincoln, Cadillac, and Mercedes. Nothing compares to the wealth of features you get on the Genesis, even on the base model. The ultimate package is icing on the cake. You can’t beat the price, not to mention the pleasure of not being nickel and dimed to death trying to configure a car with all the features you want. We love our G80.A0551236-3707-4E36-A5CF-8F385612429D.jpeg
