- Genesis Model Type
- No Genesis Yet!
Greetings! I can't confirm the engine dates, but it wouldn't be the first time I've heard Mar 2012, so if it were my money, I'd probably go with it. As for the transmission, I've had two Genesis models with V8s and that transmission without problems. Others may have a different experience, but aside from being a bit slow-shifting compared to the ZF 8 speed, I found them smooth and neither gave me any trouble. In fact, it was smoother than the ZF 6 speed I had in my 2010.
Hi there. Thanks for the info. It is indeed a 2013. I am not sure if it has ZF8 or not. I am sure you your correct. Hopefully this is a good thing ? CheersNot sure if it is still that way, new model years used to be introduced in September. A September build in 2012 would be a 2013 model year. You mentioned that it was a 2013 that you were originally looking at.
2013 would have the ZF8.
The engine issue was due to early use of low-friction piston rings from Germany that were a little too low friction, allowing oil blow-by. I've also read anything before March '12 was potentially suspect. Believe Hyundai replaced most of the engines, again from what I read during my research (I was originally looking at a 2012 that was for sale).
