Where Did We Drive It?
Our long-term 2017 Genesis G90 spent a immeasurable infancy of Dec doing a ubiquitous travelling duties. we done a few trips adult to a high dried segment of Southern California, yet differently it was business as usual. The vast G90 continues to broach a gentle and still ride.

Maintenance and Upkeep
“I’ve been seeing that automobile seats have been removing firmer in terms of cushioning. In many ways, it seems like manufacturers are adopting Audi’s construction by concentrating some-more on a figure of a seats rather than masking them with pillowy compliance. Not a Genesis. Nope. This is old-school soothing cushioning. Compared to other oppulance sedans, it feels like we penetrate into a seat, roughly like an Eames loll chair. That’s conjunction a good thing nor bad. we suspect it usually comes down to what we prefer. These seats are copiousness comfortable, for sure.” — Mark Takahashi, comparison writer
“Multiple-zone meridian control is flattering most a customary underline for vast sedans like a G90. Its tri-zone complement provides apart heat controls for any of a front chair occupants, while passengers in a behind can quarrel among themselves for continue mastery.
“Most cars concede for a singular fan speed for those in front. But a G90, like many other top-tier oppulance sedans, offers dual fan speeds for limit comfort. It’s good for me and my fiancée. I’m always a bit warm, and even when it’s cold outward I’ll keep a fan during full blast, usually next 70 degrees. She likes wafting comfortable atmosphere anytime there’s a cloud in a sky. The G90’s setup ensures we both get what we want.
“I’m not certain a editors beheld a G90’s apart fan speeds in a G90-Continental comparison. If so, a win for a meridian apportionment of a Comfort territory competence have left to a Genesis.” — Cameron Rogers, staff writer
“Here’s something that bugged me that is some-more of a hit opposite Apple than Hyundai/Genesis. The audio complement functioned excellent with my iPhone 6S right adult until dual weeks ago. Now, there’s a rather prolonged postponement between a time when we skip brazen a track. The initial integrate of seconds of a strain also get cut off. My initial theory was that it’s down to a whole ‘iPhone throttling behind for comparison batteries’ thing that was in a news. After upgrading my phone (congrats, Apple, your throttling behind worked on me), a problem persists. I’m now meditative it’s due to a latest turn of iOS updates. #FirstWorldProblems” — Mark Takahashi
“I could take adult an measureless volume of practical genuine estate, screaming into a blank about how most we hatred electronic shifters in general, yet a Genesis G90’s is worse than others. There contingency be a program glitch since we can't suppose a delivery is working a approach it’s ostensible to.
“On mixed occasions, we will retreat out of my drive and pierce a shifter to Drive, usually to have a delivery return to Neutral. The automobile will be totally stopped with my feet planted on a brake. I’ll lift a shifter toward me, postponement and release. The ‘D’ light illuminates, we give it some gas, and afterwards VVVVRRRRRRRRR. Wash, rinse, repeat until a boat finally scoots forward. It’s to a indicate where if we see a automobile half a mile down my street, I’ll usually wait until it passes in box a delivery decides to VVVVRRRRRRRR itself to a rear-end collision.
The G90 is due for frequently scheduled maintenance, so we’ll supplement this to a to-do list when we move it in.” — Cameron Rogers
