    Default Questions for G80 Sport Owners

    Members don't see this ad
    Hi. I have a 2016 G80 and am very happy with it. However, I have to admit the 2018 sport is drawing my attention. A couple of questions please:


    • I know the advantages - what, if any, are the disadvantages (what am I giving up -- other than having to use premium gas)?
    • My G80 will not sync the phonebook on my Galaxy S9 (or the S7, which I had previously). Does anyone have a newer Galaxy phone and know whether the phonebook will upload?
    • On my previous car the headlights came on with the windshield wipers (which, in NJ, is the law). The G80 does not. Does the new sport?
    • What don't I know about the Sport that only someone who's owned it would know?


    Sorry for the somewhat silly questions and I appreciate any input.

    1) You can use regular gas.
    2) I have a Galaxy S9 and use Android Auto and it's amazing for dialing (w/ Google Assistant), music, navigation.
    3) I set my headlight to Auto so I'm not sure.....
    4) The tires that come with it (Continental Pro Contact) are terrible. I had to get two of it replaced already.

    No, they do not go on with the wipers. I've mentioned that in every survey and forum since my first Sonata. Many states require light with wipers and it is not a big deal to program it in. I had that feature on a car I had 17 years ago and would expect it on a luxury car.

    I love my G80 AWD Sport! One of the best cars I've ever owned.

    I had a 2105 Genesis with 18000 miles that I just traded in 10 days ago for a G80 Sport RWD. I loved my 2015 and I am enjoying my Sport even more.
    My only concern is all the negative comments about the performance of the Continental Pro Contacts. Would have thought Genesis learned after the fiasco with the tire recall on my 2015. Good luck with your new ride.

    Don't worry about what other people say - it's your opinion that matters. On forums you mostly see only negative comments.
