I have my issues with my Genesis, but, I have to say that my dealer treats me very well. The car is always washed (well, not some half-a$$ job) and filled with gas anytime it is there.
They are currently under construction to improve the facility and offer a loaner for all service.
Why don't you try another Hyundai dealer in the area. You don't have to have it serviced where you bought it.

You'd rather pay extra for comfortable chairs and a television tuned to the People's Court in a service waiting room that you hope to never use? If you've got extra money to throw around, why not just pay to have your vehicle picked up and dropped off and avoid the waiting room altogether?
Oh, and by the way it would take more than a little bit extra to get into the same size, power, and equipment in a Lexus. Just sayin.
#90 of 91 Steering column retract problem
Jul 08, 2011 (7:57 am)
I have a 2009 v6 with Tech Package that has 34,500 miles on it. I've recently started experiencing electrical issues where when I turn the car off, the radio continues to play...but all other lights, features are off. I have to turn the car on and off several times to get it to stop. Of more concern is that now, when I turn the car off, the steering column no longer retracts or tilts up and away from the driver seat. When using the toggle switch on the left side of the column, response is intermittent and I can eventually get it to tilt up and retract but it no longer does it on it's own. I've reset the driver memory positions a couple times, and ensured that this tilt away function is selected in the driver options. Has anyone else had any issues with this or other dash electronics?
Other than this, the car has been flawless. Once I got rid of the OEM Dunlops and put Continental ExtremeContact DWS tires on....the ride and handling improved dramatically. These tires are amazing on wet roads and I'm looking forward to seeing if they live up to their reviews on snow traction performance this winter. I still get lots of compliments on the car, and love the fit and finish and all the options included. Great car.

The power tilt/tele wheel is a known problem for the Genesis. The dealer should be able to fix it, by installing new "limit" switches.
Mine has had that fix and still is wacky. It always retracts but often doesn't return to the right spot. In addition mine never goes back to the right spot with the memory presets. After my GF drives the car and I push memory setting number 1 I can bet that the wheel will be in my lap.
I just deal with it, only 10 months left with the car.
I haven't experienced the radio issue.
As for your other
