To elaborate onBeefer’s response:
The Engine Start/Stop button must be in the ON position to be able to raise or lower the windows. Each door has a Power Window switch to control that door's window. The driver has a Power Window Lock switch which can block the operation of pas- senger windows. The power windows will operate for approximately 30 seconds after the Engine Start/Stop button is in the OFF position.
However, if the front doors are opened, the Power Windows cannot be operated even within the 30 second period.
Got it, thanks for the clarification. I guess on my old car I could turn the ignition to the ON position without actually turning on the car, but with a push to start car I can only turn the car on or put it into accessory power mode where you can't control the windows.

No Genesis Yet!

Have you tried pushing the button twice? Without your foot on the brake? Usually first push is accessory mode and second push is the same as it being on but not cranked. At least I'm pretty sure that's how my wife's Sorento works and they may not have changed that. Just a thought.

This is correct. Just press the ignition button twice without touching the brake. One touch is Accessory Mode, the second is ON mode that activates all functions (including HVAC and power windows/sunroof).

Haven't tried that, I'll give it a shot today. Still learning the ways of push to start!

Anyone have issues with adjusting the seats? Not that the seats don't adjust, but finding the best seating position? No matter what I just can't get comfortable over long trips. Eventually my upper back starts to stiffen and hurt and I don't know what to do :(

I've also noticed that the passenger seat, when empty, sometimes build up a vibration like the road bumps are finely tuned to the seat's resonance frequency.

Noticed both! Bothers me to look over and see the passenger seat vibrating like crazy. And for some reason I just can’t get my seat comfy, although that’s more than likely some sort of user error

I love the seats on my G70 moreso than all of my previous cars and my wife's current accord. It has just the right amount of bolstering and cushioning and I never felt uncomfortable in it. When I took a 4 hour trip in the accord recently, the seats just didn't feel as comfortable and I had trouble walking afterwards.

It's likely highly dependent on your body build (I have a slender build) but I'd suggest fine tuning your seating position more because there is a lot of adjustability.

I do notice some engine-induced vibration when I'm idling but it's not anything that annoys me. I remember my older 2015 genesis 3.8 had a similar vibration at stoplights or with the AC on so maybe I'm just used to it now.

Same thing with me once I got the car. Didn't encounter it while doing the test drive.
Solved it by basically lowering the seat all the way down and adjusting every other parameter other than height.
I've never say all the way to the ground on my other vehicles so I didn't try it the first 2 weeks but I'm glad I did!

What car did you guys have before the G70? The farthest I've driven is 4 hours and I think the seats are really comfortable, then again I'm coming from a 2006 Subaru WRX so my bar was set pretty low.

Haha, I hear you. I've been driving beaters ever since college. My most recent car before the G70 was a '98 Subaru outback sport. That said, anything newer would've been a huge upgrade. The G70 is so dang luxurious.

I had to lower the seat all the way to the floor then raise the front end up so my legs had enough support. Once I did that my seat was comfortable for a 15 hour straight road trip. I also set 2 presets, with one being slightly closer and more elevated just to mix things up a bit. Worked like a charm.

That's how I have the chair set up for the most part. The pain I'm getting is in the mid to upper back. I think it's more of a posture thing than a seat thing, I can't explain it. :/

Have you played with the Lumbar Support setting button? Maybe moving it up or down could help. I had to adjust mine all the way down and all the way in for feeling comfortable.

If I had a dollar for every time I messed with one of the various seat functions I'd go out and buy a G80 too lol

Agree. There are so many possible combinations that get frustrating at times. When you get one position that seems to work good you press the Memory button. Ten minutes later you see yourself changing some setting and pressing the Memory button gain. Thats the neverending story.

The worst part is that you can't set or select the seat memory while driving!

Hah! I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one doing that. Started to think I was losing my mind.
