Apparently Genesis will notify owners and dealers in May to get the GV80s fixed.

Genesis will notify owners and dealerships in late May 2021 and instruct owners to take their vehicle to their nearest dealership where the high-pressure fuel tube will be replaced.

Good tip. We're lucky that so few models were included in this recall.
When was yours built?
January 2021 build date on driver door frame. Didn't see day. Might be part of recall.

Sorry for late response, about a week after Beauty arrived (waited 4 months for delivery) took a fall on wet concrete and broke RIGHT foot. She has been garaged since. Finally able to drive her yesterday. On the bright side, low miles.
