- 2G Genesis Sedan (2015-2016)
The move south advice is classic.
Have not had anything like that happen before.Further to that - I had an issue where the car wouldn't start. It was -26C and car was parked outside for about 7 hours. About 10 minutes before leaving I used the app to start the vehicle. No problem, car started. Ran the 7 minutes. When I got to the car, I opened the door as usual by hitting the button on the door handle, got in, put my foot on the brake, hit the start button and engine would not engage. Lots of juice, cranked like it was +26 out, so in my estimation it wasn't getting gas. I tried several times over a 10 minute period. Tried the app again too, first time it wouldn't do it because the the door was open (I was in the car with the doors unlocked) so I thought ok, I'll lock the door and try again. It failed again with a message to contact roadside assistance.
So then I left the vehicle, locked it. Unlocked it and got back in, tried again, still wouldn't start. Sat there another couple of minutes..oh hit the roadside assistance button, went on hold but then it just disconnected during this. I tried again in a couple minutes - vroooom started right up with no issues.
Anyone else have anything like this happen to them? Luckily I was (sort of) in town. More than close enough to get a tow in to the dealership. However, if that happens out of town I'm going to be screwed. My thought is, for some reason the vehicle could not read my keyfob and therefore would not release the gas to the engine. Then all of a sudden it did read it and off I went. I hope it was a fluke, if it does it again I'll call Genesis and have it looked at.
Haven’t noticed a timer for that before... will have to check next opportunity. ThxI'm assuming you checked the timer right? There's options and max it will run is 7 minutes. When I activated it I think it was defaulting to 3 or 4 minutes. It's an 'environment' thing.
Another thing to add to the list is the gas door. I have alot of difficulty opening the gas door because of winter and there is no finger grabber indent. Now I have to bring around something plastic to try and pry it open while trying not to scratch the paint every week, the button doesn't do anything and to make it worse I obvioisly can't push the button and pull at the same time!
I will check out this manual release and maybe some sort of spray to hold back the freezing. Im sure I already looked like an idiot banging on my car non stop - pressing the button - banging on car - pressing button and so on for about 8minsSpray a little silicone where the door makes contact
A smack with the palm of you hand may release it
There is a manual release inside the trunk
My only complaint with the heated steering wheel is that it simply doesn't get very hot. I haven't had an opportunity to try out another G70 heated wheel in winter yet, so I don't know if that issue is only with my particular car or the G70 in general. In my previous 2003 Maxima the wheel would get so hot that it could be hard to hold onto without gloves, I actually miss that on super cold days where it's -30 outside.Less of something I don't like and more of something I wish they would change. I remember this irritating me when I first bought the car almost two years ago, but now I was reminded after having a rental with this feature. Anyway...
I wish the heated steering wheel and seats would remember their last setting if the car is restarted with ~10-15 minutes. BMW has this and the 2019 Ford Fusion rental I just had last week had this feature!
It is nice if you if you say have the heated steering wheel on high and the seat to level 1, then stop at a gas station to fill up or a store to quickly run in and then you get back in the car and start it and you don't have to turn everything back on to the same level.
This is definitely a first world problem and again just another minor (and easy to fix) thing on the G70 that keeps it from being perfect.
Hmm, I took a couple of test drives a couple of weeks back and the wheel was pretty hot. Not enough to burn but more than enough to feel it through my gloves. With gloves off, it was almost too hot. Outside temp was around 32 F. At least that's my very limited experience.My only complaint with the heated steering wheel is that it simply doesn't get very hot.

That would be pretty amazing if this is possible with the G70. I find that that seats are actually too warm for my tastes, even on the lowest setting. Ability to fine tune the heated seats and steering wheel would be great.In my previous Volvo vehicle I was concerned about the heated seats being just warm, no more, even on high. The owner forum told me this could be adjusted at the dealership. I asked and they delivered. There were three settings accessible by them alone and the car was on their #1. They put me at their #2 and that was enough. There were also three settings for driver adjustment, different than what dealer does. My newer low was like previous medium and my new high was higher than previous high. I am talking here about a change in the ECU or something that controls factors out of driver ability. Perhaps the same is true for Genesis.
I can't seem to get the remote start to work form the Genesis App. States Server offline or something like that. However, If I use the Alexa App to start the vehicle, it works every time. Don't know what that's about.I’m always bummed out when the remote start fails to process
This would drive me crazy, both the sound and the lack of support. I'm sure my dad would tell me to just add some WD-40.Dealer's in Chicago don't seem to care about these cars. Those that do seem incompetent and make things worse. Corporate is no better. I've been living with this, and a steering whee popping feeling and noise for over a month with zero help from the dealers or corporate. In summary, the cars may be nice, but after sales support is beyond awful.
