Awesome Car — This is a sleek looking car with tons of power. It has great handling and make stable turns. It runs well and great on gas. Many people do not know it is a Hyundai. First impression from people is usually Whoa!

Pros

Car is lots of fun to drive and makes driving on the Interstate an easy task.  Gets attention everywhere because of its sharp appearance and the snarl from the exhaust.

Cons

You have to learn to tone it down a little with your driving style because it can also attract the wrong type of attention from the local peace officers if you don't keep it in check.

Fun Sporty Car With A Backseat For Small Kids Or Short Trips With Adults — I liked everything about the way this car drives! As with any sports car, you have to be willing to make some compromises on cargo space and passenger room but this one is great because it's not just a two seater!

Pros

Extremely fun to drive!  I bought mine used and it was 1/2 the price of new!  Kids love riding in it (it actually has a back seat).

Cons

Back seat is for kids only.  I (as an adult) can not fit in the back seat.  I hit my head on the roof and I'm only 5-10.  Rear-wheel drive is a challenge in the snow and not for the weak hearted or in-experienced drivers.  Manual transmission can be a challenge in daily-driving, stop-n-go traffic.

Fun, Affordable, 300+hp Coupe, True To Sports-car Look And Feel. — My wife and I love sports cars and we have had some sporty vehicles but the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coup 3.8 is a true sports car for the common man (that has 2 kids)! We love how it looks and how it handles. The 3.8L V6 has over 300HP and a driver/passenger can really tell! We love this car and look forward to having it for the rest of our lives (with a few upgrades along the way)! Maybe someday I'll get my chance to get it out on a real closed road-course style track!

Pros

I love this car!  It has been reliable and is a blast to drive!  Seats are really comfortable, stereo system is good, car handles very well.  Love the body lines and asymetric exhaust. The Bluetooth is great and calls are clear-totally handsfree!

Cons

Wish it had memory seats!

Pretty And Beyond Fun To Drive!!! — I looked at several cars before choosing the Genesis. I had previously owned a Nissan 350-Z and an Infiniti G-37. The G-37 turned out not to be all that so I got rid of it and started looking for a replacement commuter car (the Z was a weekend toy). I saved the Genesis for last because I had a feeling that was the car I would be buying. We had a 2007 Sonata and loved it-it never had one issue.. I have been driving for 40 years and have never owned a front wheel drive car so my search was somewhat limited. Apparently, nobody makes RWD cars anymore (I'm not counting cars made here)! I have had the car for 2 1/2 years and still love it as much as the day I bought it. This is only the second car I have driven for more than 2 years (I get bored easily!) and I plan to keep in until the wheels fall off! It's comfortable, quick and handles like it's on rails! I adore it!!!

Good For Hyundai, But Still Not A "luxury" Car — I got plenty of compliments in this car, but it's not a luxury car. The interior has started to peel in places. The car has definitely not held it's value as it's already worth less than 50% in under 3 years.

Pros

With the big brembo brakes it will stop on a dime

Cons

The boost is regulated by the ECU. This makes it more exspensive to tune

Lots Of Potential To Be A Great Track Car — With the sporty design, big brakes and quick acceleration, this little car sure packs a punch. With 6 on the floor you can really drive this car. there is enough gear to always be in boost and the brembos make it easy to slow down when you see a cop appear lol.

Once you test drive one you simply won't believe it's a Hyundai.

Cons

NOT a family car and NOT easy on the insurance!

All Of This And A 10 Year 100,000 Mile Warranty With 5 Year Road Side Assistance Is The Best! — The 2010 Genesis Coupe 380GT is the fastest car I have owned....even faster than my 2005 Nissan Altima SE-R. So far I am really enjoying it and have already gotten 2 speeding tickets! Genie is the name of my Genesis and she really knows how to disappear! Handing is great and interior and exterior designs are superb. The butterfly paddle shifters make it impossible to over-rev or "skip" gears, but also offers faster shifts than the traditional heel/toe hand & foot method used on a stick. This vehicle was purchased after considering, available sport truck models and several sports cars, including the Ford Mustang, Mitsubishi Lancer and Subaru WRX. I also test drove and even rented the 2010 Camaro. After this entire revelation, I came back to Genesis! Current modifications include the 2-toned paint on the hood and roof and just a couple of trunk vinyls for added flair. The Genesis insignias that adorn the car are factory installed and was on the car prior to purchase. Super fun car to drive, very enjoyable on road trips, easy on gas and even easier on the eyes....inside and out!

Pros

Stylish fun car. Perfect for daily driving.

Cons

Rear seats are useless unless you have 5 ft freinds

Nice — Appearance; was very stylish and looks great, and was quite comfortable inside especially with the soft bucket type seats. Build quality; Its fairly quiet when your commute. Although there is a small rear pillar that prevents you from looking back at your blind spot, but you get use to it and look past that. As for gas milages its pretty good avg 25mpg on premium. Maintenance and repair costs are also fairly cheap. Performance; With a turbo built in the car accelerates smoothly and quickly, for handling its not so great as its a pretty heavy car. Overall its a fun car to drive everyday.
