One Thing You Wish You Knew Before Buying

Anybody else run into this? I will research something for days, sometimes weeks or even months, before buying it, ESPECIALLY when it's a big commitment. I get a sense of the bigger issues I might run into, only to be surprised by something small! Sometimes it's easier to find out about big problems or inconveniences than the little ones.

What's one thing you wish you had known before buying your Genesis GV?

One thing I wish I鈥檇 known was the buyers remorse feeling after not getting the top trim package with 3D digital gauge and heads up display. Every time I see a prestige with the prestige rims, it gives me a feeling of regret. If you can afford the GV70 sport advanced 3.5T, then I鈥檇 go for the full GV70 sport prestige 3.5T.
yep i'm on the fence between 4 and the 6 hate to buy the 4 and because it is missing a few things regret it down the road

If Genesis is going to continue to sell concierge maintenance service, they had better get their dealerships in line quickly. They make succeed in making the initial sale, but will quickly sour consumers who receive less than stellar service for a simple oil change.
yep and they won't be repeat costumers

My recommendation is to buy the top trim if you think you might regret not having it down the line. The monthly payment change won鈥檛 be anything too crazy.

We had the same issue. We wanted the heads up display as well. The salesperson at the dealership advised it was no problem to get the hud with the 4 cylinder but after she did some inquiries found it was not available on the 4 cylinder. We bought the 6 cylinder with the hud and are very happy with it but probably has more horsepower than we need (and consequently worse gas mileage).
Gotta disagree with the load it up concept. Genesis struggles with the tech to be sure. The highest levels of tech seem to be the most problematic, especially in cars. You also (usually) pay stupid money for that last extra bit of exclusivity. I've seen way too many dealer wrenches shrug their shoulders as they are stumped. I hate that.

If you don't want tech, just but a stripped down Chevy or Ford! Gimmie the goodies!

Got a fully loaded GV80. Don't use all the tech regularly, but it all works flawlessly when I do. It's an amazing vehicle and even after 2 yrs, still gets unsolicited compliments from strangers.

awesome! You should knock on wood ;)
I absolutely love my 2022 GV70 3.5 Sport Prestige in Cardiff Green with Black interior...it has all the bells and whistles including headup display and adaptive suspension. I do wish I had thought about how much cargo it would carry because that's the one thing I long for more than anything else. Also the lack of fog lights. View attachment 3249
I'm late to the game here as you posted in 2022. But I wanted to ask, I've seen a few comments about the lack of fog lights. Now, I'm not being facetious, but are they actually used for fog? I lived by the beach for most of my life with LOTS of fog and never had them. Now I live in the desert and there's no fog. Guess they could have made driving easier???

They just show you the side of the road directly off the corner of the vehicle. Point down and out, do not light up the road in front you at all. Most cars you can barely see them from the drivers seat as they go on or off. Look out extra low corner of windshield as you turn them on and you might see a bit of light. Almost more for being seen but they do show you the edge lines which is certainly helpful.
