So, I’ve had my GV80 for three months now and am still learning new things all the time.
You all may think I’m a dope for not knowing this, but figured I’d share anyway. I had been annoyed that the only way to open the rear cargo door was either with the dash button or the key fob. (Or setting up the auto-open feature for when you approach from the rear).
I didn’t realize there is a subtle black button at the base of the rear wiper. Just found it the other day by accident.
Guess I should read the whole manual…

Your dealer should have showed you that.
The guy at the dealership who is responsible for showing the features on pick-up day seemed mesmerized by all the tech.
I made him show me how the car can parallel park itself with the driver outside, and it took him 20 minutes to figure it out.
Oh well. That’s what happens when Hyundai techs show Genesis cars.

Guess I was lucky; my salesman had taken a week long course of instruction and was very proud of the certificate he had framed behind his desk. When I picked it up, he spent two and a half hrs showing me how to operate all the tech in the car. I was so impressed I went back and gave him a bottle of Woodford Reserve Bourbon…

I did a lot of research and extensively reviewed all of the features before I purchased my GV80 3.5TT Advanced Plus. The Las Vegas dealership assigned one individual to show new buyers all of the features, however, instead of following an extensive checklist which is on the Genesis web site, he asked "What would you like to see?".

I appeared to know more about the car's features than he did and was prepared with my questions and also the checklist mentioned above. I was very disappointed in the initial briefing and spent a lot of additional time reading the owner's manual cover to cover to ensure I was familiar with all of the features.

I'm extremely happy with the vehicle, but disappointed with the lack of "luxury" service by the dealership.

I personally do not like the fact that standing near the rear hatch with key in pocket will cause the hatch to open. Happened to me in a closed garage and suffered so scratches when the hatch hit the garage door. i think this can be changed in settings but not sure

I agree. Would prefer if it worked like my wife’s Ford where you wave your foot under the bumper and the liftgate opens. And, yes you can disable that feature in the settings. Don’t remember where though. So many options…

Page 5-69 of the owners manual states the following for settings for the Smart Power Lift Gate.

it does seem to be an oversight by Genesis to not have the lift gate stop opening once it meets some resistance

Mine does. But if that resistance causes a scratch it cannot be helped. If I put my hand out to stop it going up or down and give the slightest resistance it will stop. But if that resistance is a garage door then it might cause a scratch.

edit: I stand corrected. I could have sworn the other day I got it to stop. But today it does just push harder both going up and down.

Mine doesn't when opening, if I try to stop it from opening with my hand, it'll just keep applying more force continue opening
