Bought a new titanium 4.6 today from Hanlees Hilltop Hyundai in Richmond CA. Paid $36,250 including the doc fee, iPod cable, upgrade to the V5 GPS map and trunk mat. Very happy with the car, dealership and salesman. The customer incentives on the 2012's seem to have disappeared for December. I don't know if the dealers currently have an incentive or not.
We were originally looking for a V6 for about $1K less, but the Ms didn't like the sound of the engine on the V6's we drove. Don't know if it's the solid lifters or the GDI engine, but the V6 sounds like it needs a valve adjustment to me. The 4.6 has a non-GDI engine with hydraulic lifters so the engine purrs.

jlindh, your 4.6 was it a 2013 Did your genesis have the tech pck, and premium pck in the car.. I'm deciding on either the 2013 Geny,or the Honda Accord both cars looks very simular. Accord has better Tech features with heads up display on windshield, lane warning system and a lane detection system with camera's on outside mirriors, and better gas mpg..Did rcieve 1 internet quote for a 2013 3.8 loaded for $39,159 without dest fee, any doc fee's or taxes. I'm sure if i decide to buy the genesis i could get the price down to $38,400. any thoughts.. In the fall of 2014 the new redisigned genesis will be out and probaly will have a 8 spped trany and upgraded Tech features . I'm also reading that Hyundia will upgrade the suspension to improve its ride to compete more with BMW , Audi, etc.. I really dont want to wait another year to buy new . So maybe for 12k less i"ll pick up a Accord and wait i see how the Genesis fares with there upgrades.. ANY Thoughts.................. Bian

I'm also hearing the 2014 genesis will be all wheel drive. Rear wheel sucks here in the North East.

Brian, there IS NO 2013 4.6 V8, mine is a 2012. All the V8's have the premium and technology packages including the lane departure warning system plus wood trim steering wheel, lighted door sill plates and a lower chrome strip on the body. All the '12s have the 8 speed tranny but do not have the Blue Link subscription service option. That's no loss to me as I'm no fan of additional payments to activate all the features of my cars. The 2014 Genesis may have an OPTION for all-wheel drive.
We also seriously looked at the 2013 Accord EX-L V6 with navigation for about 29.5K. That would have been about $6750 less for a heck of a lot less car. I did like the blind spot mirror on the right side and the Pandora app. If there's a HUD on the Accord, I'm not aware of it.

Thanks, i think for over 10k less the Accord is the better buy all around . than a 2013 genesis. I dont need 400 horse pw. been there done those cars . Next year when Hyundia upgrades there Suspension, goes to All wheel drive, a 10 spd trans and upgrading there tech features i will take a better look. the 2013 Accord will hurt Genesis sales this year for sure. Right now i think for 55k the 2013 Audi A6 is the best car for the money. Ride performance and features. The Genesis is a great buy for the buck. Needs updating but still not in that class of Bmw,,Audi, Lexus....................................... Good luck enjoy your new ride

The 2013 Honda Accord will not hurt Genesis sales because they are not in the same category. Accord is in the midsize game and the Genesis is in the entry luxury large car game, 2 totally different animals my friend.

lashawn your missing my point . For 10k less the 2013 Accord and the 3.8 Genesis are Same look, Interior space, Hp Genesis has 333 to 290 edge, gas better in Accord. Accord better safety features, Until Hyundia upates there suspension, and rear wheel drive me personally...feel for 29k for Interior space and updated features I'll keep that extra cash in my pocket. The Accord even upgraded the stereo, But defiantly not as good as Hyundia's radio.
Read up on the 2014 Kia Cadenza Its comming out this month. this car will have all the updates and features that re design 2014 geny will be getting that i spoke of in above post. The aging Genesis hopefully will once again set the standard next year for best luxury entry level car with upgrades. Until then lets wait and see........ merry X-mas

The Accord EX-L Nav is only about 5.5K less in actual prices paid compared to the V6. I paid $36,250 for my new 4.6 V8. The Genesis is rear wheel drive which makes a big difference to some of us.
I stand by my statement that while the Accord is a nice car, the Genesis is a lot more car.

your correct a 2013 genesis 3.8 without the premium and tech package is about 4k less.. with those 2 packages its 39.5 k plus taxes. So my point being if i get a Genesis without upgrades... What separates the genesis from the accord ?.... little bit more hp and a louder radio. without the 2 mention packages the Genesis has nothing to offer compared to a much lesser Accord..Just giving out the facts. You purchased a 2012 end of year Genesis. On Jan 1 2013 your car will know be a 1 yr old model and book wise its depreciated about $ 3k. thats why you got a great deal. you cant compare your loaded 4.6 to a simple Accord. The Aging Genesis is no longer the best bang for the buck until they upgrade several key area's that i had addressed in my prior post..

Hopefully, you're not paying retail price for your cars. So why compare retail prices? A Tech package Genesis can be had for $35,000 in the real world. Likewise, a EX-L Navigation Accord can be had for about $29,500. My 4.6 Genesis was $36,250 new.
The '13 Accord has some very nice tech updates, no doubt. I'd rather have one than a '13 Accura TL for that reason. And yes, the new Accord does have some great tech that the '12 Genesis lacks, but a car is more than just fancy gizmos. Hence, my assertion that the Genesis is a lot more car. Drive them both on the same day, the difference is obvious.
