2/28 EDIT: Edited title to reflect even more bad news from the factory shutdown as well.


This is the first report of a Genesis GV80 crash. And this is also the first recall for the Genesis GV80. It's not clear whether the crash was caused by any issue related to the recall.

South Korea’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport announced a recall of 823 GV80 related to a software problem with the Idle Stop & Go system.

This is crazy, hopefully everyone is ok. Not a good look for Genesis here.

There's some more information on the recall that's come out.

From Carscoops:

The ministry didn’t go into too many specifics, but said the “corrective action” is a result of shifts that are “not normal” due to a software issue. Motorgraph says that in certain circumstances, the crossover will go in reverse while drive is selected.

To fix the issue, owners will need to take their vehicle to a service center so technicians can perform a software update to correct the problem free of charge.


Maybe this GV80 somehow went into reverse and hit the other car?

The damage sure seems consistent with that. It's all directly head-on, likely when the driver attempted to proceed from a standstill.

The bad news keeps on coming! The Genesis GV80 factory has been shut down because a worker tested positive for the coronavirus! This isn't just a precautionary factory closure -- the worker building GV80s tested positive!


Can the GV80 have any more bad news in one week?
