G37 Killer by Dan from Atlanta on 05/07/2012. Trim: 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track Auto, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Amazing vehicle! Bought it as an alternative to the G37, A5 and C350 coupe. Was a little concerned that it was "only" a Hyundai....this car stands toe to toe with the group. Car gets many looks and comments. Performance never disappoints. Been up to the Georgia mountain switchbacks and it leaves everyone in the dust...without trying. Bought every option. Still reading the 3 thick owners manual, but the Nav/Bluelink system is fantastic. 8 speed auto gives great control with paddle shifters.
Cons: Some cheap plastic features that I expected, but most don't notice. Would like to have had a suspension adjustment feature. Very firm ride, too firm for some. Black paint seems to chip too easily. Get a bra or clear mask.
Overall review: Don't buy this car...I like having this cool unique baby all to myself. But if you must, then get the 3.8....killer.

Class with Speed by Weld 387 on 05/05/2012. Trim: 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T Premium Auto, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: It handles in the corners very well. Good road feel with sport suspention. I bought a slightly better then base model 2.0 T with the eight speed automatic transmission. You can burn Regular unleaded or Premium gas. Some newer sport cars won't do that. The ponies are there even with a 4 cyl. The turbo makes a huge difference. Still taken it easy on the car. They tell you to keep your foot out of it the first 600 miles. The body style is a stunning feature too me. You get a lot of car for the money. Mileage is listed 20 city 31hwy. 10 yrs 100,000 mile power train warranty. Mine came with XM radio also nice feature. The trunk is spacious on the car. Nice 18in alloy wheels with locks.
Cons: The back seat has enough room for a gym bag. I knew that it was small going into the deal I have no kids so this was not an issue. The radio is lack luster. The cheesy Dougnut spare. Still looking for the jack?
Overall review: I can tell you it's a very nice riding car. So far everything has been flawless on this 2013 Genesis Coupe 2.0T. It is brand new still. Time will tell if it will hold up. The rear wheel drive car is what I grew up with. This thing is a good balance of class and style with some great performance features that I like very much. There is no hint of buyers remoarse at all with this thing. It's a great entry level sport car. If you can swing the extra cash for the V6 get it and hang on. The inline four turbo was good enough for me.

2013 Coupe: All It Wants to do is Go Fast by HHI Golf Guy on 05/31/2012. Trim: 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T Premium Auto, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: In the right color, this car is a real head turner. I have the 2.0T Premium in Parabolica Blue and everyone stops and stares. Effortlessly moves from zero at the stoplight to 50 mph without having to stomp on the gas.The leather/cloth combo seats are comfortable. The smaller, leather trimmed steering wheel has a nice sporty feel. Visibility out the front, back, and even the sides is very good (no blind spots). The car handles well, and for a stiff suspension the ride is comfortable. The sat/nav, stereo and bluetooth all work well. I can use bluetooth to play music from my iPhone, but it needs the cable connection to choose playlists and utilize voice command for the music.
Cons: In the long run I worry about the quality of the interior. There's a lot of hard plastic that can easily be scratched and gouged. Paddle shifters seem a bit flimsy. The car is a bit heavy for its size, so it's not as easy to throw it around as it is with lighter sports cars. Disappointed that the backup camera does not come standard with the 2.0T Premium package. The doors are long and not framed at the top and if you close the doors with any force they rattle like heck. The cluster gauges on the center console look good, but their location isn't practical.
Overall review: This review is for the 2.0T Premium. On the way to order a Subaru BRZ Limited I stopped by the Hyundai dealer to check out the Genesis Coupe. Between not wanting to wait months for the BRZ delivery and the fact that the Hyundai dealer kept lowering his price until I received such a ridiculous deal I couldn't pass up this car. It's a great looking car, and despite my concerns about all of the hard plastic inside the interior still looks nifty. When you take off the rear wheel drive throws you back into the seat and you feel the front end get a bit light. The tuned dual tail pipes give you a nice rumble under acceleration, but at cruising speed the car is surprisingly quiet. The car has a tight turning radius, so you need to be on your toes if you accelerate hard while making a sharp turn, especially when you turn off the traction control. Overall, I like it and it's a spiffy little car. Time will tell if I trade it in for next year's BRZ.

Updated Review @1300 Miles by HHI Golf Guy on 09/05/2012. Trim: 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T Premium Auto, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Vehicle type: 2013 2.0T Premium. See previous review and notes below on the widely reported fuel pump problem. The car is still fun to drive, and if you're smooth on the throttle (to avoid the turbo lag) the power and the rear wheel give you a fun jolt that throws you back in the seat. The small cockpit, dark interior, and small steering wheel give the car a nice "race car" type of feel. On longer trips where the speed limit is 50-70 mph I have averaged over 30 MPG, but only 19 MPG around town.
Cons: I have the 8 speed automatic transmission that allows you to override the auto shift with the paddle shifters or the slap shift. While these are a fun little novelty, they are not practical to use if you're running an SCCA Solo II event or just trying to hot rod it around town. The problem is that the rations between first and 4th gear are so close and the response time of the manual shifting is so slow you overshoot the sweet spot in the power band for the next up shift. Performance wise, letting the computer control the shifting provides better performance.
Overall review: Car developed a loud, high pitched whine that could be heard throughout the cabin that turned out to be coming from the fuel pump. If you check around the web you will see this is a very common issue. Hyundai replaced the entire fuel pump assembly under warranty and hopefully that will fix the problem. However, other owners have also had the fuel pump replaced and the problem returned. My guess is that Hyundai will need to look into this problem a bit more. It's still a fun car, but my main worry is still the long term build quality of the vehicle.
