#53 of 91 Quality Issues - Premature Tire Wear
May 17, 2010 (8:19 am)
I have experienced the tilt wheel reset issue and noticed that there is a slight pull to the right when cruising at highway speed. The biggest and most expensive issue for me is this; I took my 2009 v8+tech in this weekend for 4th oil change and what would be the 3rd tire rotation. At 14,522 miles, my right rear tire is bald, my left rear is at 1/32" and both front tires are at or just under 2/32", effectively worn out. Stock tire was dunlop (don't know which model) 235 50R18 V rated, from what I can tell. Called the dealer, and the service department shared a similar story of another owner. I went to Costco for prices, and when the technician took my make and model, he also said that he has already replaced tires on Genesis with similarly low miles. Anyone else have to spend $1000 for tires 9 months into ownership?

There is another poster here on Edmunds who after IIRC 17K replaced the tires on his V8. I have the V6 with 17" wheels and have around 11K and they still look ok. The Dunlops are not great wearing tires and this appears pretty normal expecially on the V8s. I wonder if the V8 having the limited slip rear eats up the tires more than the V6?

9 months and 20k miles later I had to change mine.It's been a common issue with both V6 and V8

After some negotiation with the dealership, I was able to get a bit of relief and had four new tires installed. They split (50%-50%) the cost of a new set of the original tires. It was still fairly pricey, but the savings was worth the trip. I suppose that it never hurts to ask.

From your description, are you sure you did not order the rear view camera as part of the Colonoscopy Package Sorry, I could not resist the set up.

Wow, I may have checked that box by accident!
Maybe this is a business opportunity.
#60 of 91 Loss of rearview camera use
Jun 10, 2010 (8:17 am)
So, I had lost the camera use after washing my car. I looked at the lens, wiped it off, looked to see if something was loose, and found nothing wrong. Yesterday I washed my car again, and the rear view camera worked.
I don't know why this should be, but I suspect I have a loose connection, and will take it to dealer, and then report.
#61 of 91 2011 Genesis Suspension
Aug 18, 2010 (6:35 pm)
There is a post on www.genesisowners.com
"For 2011 Hyundai has reverted back to the 2009 suspension, because no one could tell the difference between 2009 and 2010, and they had a lot of 2009 components left over so they thought they would use them up. "
Can anyone verify this? I am torn between purchasing a leftover 2010 and a new 2011. Some of the dealers have 2011s and from what I can see there are no major changes. I have read other posts claiming minor tweaks to the 2010 suspension, but no major architecture changes in the suspension. Need some input....
