Had my 09' Genesis Tech V-6 since April 09' I've got 32k on it changed tires at 28K other than a few minor things that were taken care of by the dealership it has been smooth sailing ever since. Lease is up in April 2012 and I will be purchasing it. Still turns heads and is still in mint condition.
#13 of 41 Genesis sedan blind-spot monitor---when?

2012 Genesis 3.8. A nice car in many ways, but it is missing, in a big way, by not offering a very important safety feature, a blind-spot monitoring system/sensor that a lot of the competition in this price range has, including the less expensive 2012 toyota camry. Until this is offered, I will not buy one of these cars. Any idea when Hyundai will be offering this on the Genesis 3.8 sedan?

Ushy, the Technology package does have a Lane Departure warning system, which helps if the driver should go over the lane markers. I have a '12 and have no issues with big blind spots

Wamba2000, thanks for your reply, but a lane departure warning system, and a blind-spot monitor/system address different safety issues.

I'm shamed to admit it, but it took my 40 years to realize there is a way to adjust your car's mirrors to eliminate all bind spots.
No fancy warning system needed.

I have my own warning system, its called my eyes! I am looking at cars recently and seeing more and more blind spot alerts, cross traffic alerts, lane departure warnings etc. How much more do they want to dumb down driving, and what if you start to rely on this BS too much and drive a car without it?

What ever happened to turning your head to look at oncoming traffic before you merge into the next lane or better yet, use the power mirrors.

What's your secret to adjust mirrors to eliminate all blind spots?

I have a 2012 Genesis Sedan. The dashboard monitor that shows the average mpg seems to register about 1 gallon more than I calculate after filling the tank. Your experience(s), please.
