A Fantastic Car! — I purchased this car brand new in 2009. Absolutely satisfied with the car. I have had 2 notes with telephone numbers from anonymous admirers of this car placed under the windshield wipers within the first month! This is a great car for a great price!

Good If You Want A Budget Mercedes E Class With An Amg Package — brakes a little sticky, steering as a numbness to them. Handles very well for a family car. Gas is a little pricey and maintenance is a bit pricey. It fun to wrestle around corner. Overall its perfect for someone that like big sports cars.

Very Nice Car — A lot of luxury for the price. Owned a Lexus amd Mercedes prior and gave up nothing Love the warranty many confuse if for a MB or BMW that is fun. The NAV is a little quirky but OK to use

Buy One And Be Happy — If you are looking for affordable luxury at an affordable price, then you need not look any further. This car performs like a luxury sports car and has the looks and drive of a mid size mercedes. the interior is well apointed and options are driver friendly. The cost of ownership is very reaonable, gas mileage averages 27(mph)Hwy and 22(mph)city. The only maintenance needed during 26000 miles has been routine oil changes and tire rotations. Driving this car makes you smile!

Overall, Good Service — good experience so far. car performance is good, and engine is powerful, and the suspension system is not as good as lexus, but it is a sports car afterall. Love the black/black look, and no problem after one month so far.

The Genesis: The Start Of Hyundai's Journey To Perfection And Luxury — Great V8 engine, no major repairs yet but squeaked a little, performed good, acceleration and braking top notch, cost around $50000 for the V8 4.6L, definitely a fun and cool car to drive as I hear whistles around as I drive

It Has Everything - And More. — Our original intention was to buy another SUV. But when we saw this car, it didn't take long for us to change our minds. The interior is luxurious and the pearl white is beautiful.

Auto Excellencem Is Here — The suspension is rather harsh when traveling over bumps in the road,small or large. However in every other aspect of the car,it is awesome and I would not hesitate to buy another one ,once the suspension is retuned.

The Best Bang For Your Buck — First of all, Cadillac man this vehicle IS rear wheel drive. I just came back from my dealer driving around this awesome car. I can tell you: dollar for dollar you can not beat this vehicle in terms of value for your money. Yes it may not be a "true" sports sedan, but in my opinion has the perfect balance of luxury, performance, reliability and performance in one value oriented car. The interior is absolutely HUGE. The stitched leather on the dash was a great surprise. Everything on the inside looks and feels of high quality materials. The car is very quiet. In fact, I asked the salesperson for the key to start the engine and the guy was like " sir, the car is already started." I was like "what?!" I didnt believe him until I looked at the tach of which said 400 rpm. I had the V6 model and let me tell you this thing can push. The engine noise is very well contained. The handling is between an Inifiniti M and a BMW 5 Series. I found that the chassis is well balanced and handling is very good. This is definitely a great car. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a car in this segment. Fuel economy is one of the best too.
