#47 of 52 Re: Acceleration Issue with 2011 3.6 Genesis [harrybush00]

I just recently resolved the latent accelerator issue. It took 4 times into the dealership before they sent a factory engineer to the rescue. It turned out to be related to my driving/braking pattern and a new safety feature on the vehicle. I brake most of the time with my left foot and accelerate with my right. The Genesis and many new vehicles I am told have a sensor that prevents one from accelerating while the brake pedal is being depressed. Since I am a "two footer" and brake with my left, when I am at stop or in slow traffic I keep my left poised on the brake, thus it precludes my ability to accelerate until I completely remove my foot from the brake. Since learning of this by the factory rep I have not had any issues.

That's interesting. I am starting to feel like either my car has gotten better about throttle response or I'm getting used to it. I guess it'll get better over time.
#49 of 52 2011 4.6 Genesin - Adaptive Cruise
Feb 13, 2011 (6:39 am)
I just purchased a 4.6 Genesis but have not picked it up yet. During the test drive the adaptive cruise worked fine. However, it slowed down a considerable distance from the car ahead, which in some situations could be a problem. After the fact, I wondered whether this feature has a sensitivity adjustment or can be turned off at the driver's discretion. I didn't have a chance to ask salesman although I doubt he would have known. Can anyone help me with this question?

I've had it randomly die on me, (dealer was stumped, Hyundai corporate said to clean and re-torque all grounds) hasn't done it since.
Various interior trim pieces needed to be replaced (b-pillars tore, sunvisor light died)
the power tilt/telescopic wheel problems (still not fixed, has a mind of its own)
power passenger seat spit out parts from underneath
The engine makes some really nasty noises on startup (dealer claims normal).
My dealer also offers loaner for oil changes. Add all this up and you can see why I've had my share of loaners. I've driven just about every Genesis combo out there.
12 months and one week to go on the lease,

I have a 2011 4.6l Genesis, too. The adaptive cruise control has a 3 option setting to set the distance you desire from the car ahead. I haven't had any trouble with mine and I usually use the middle distance spacing.
